souns @ pretty good not bad

wanted to take the time to thank the team from the first annual pretty good not bad festival in victoria, bc.

great performances from laurel halo, loscil, sean evans, chris dammeyar, compzit, magnetic ring, emp interactions, liquid transmitter, and the local dancers and drummers who opened the ambient picnic. it was especially a treat to live collab with loscil. had a good time during my souns set as well.

thanks all

january souns

starting to get anchored in the new year here. clouds beginning to clear. a few souns projects coming up in the near..

JAN 24 (afternoon) : a collab and bit of an experiment with Danielle Hoogenboom. ambient soundscapes paired with yin yoga at Fortune Sound Club.

JAN 24 (evening) : premiering a ambient video my friend Joe Cobden and i put together, happening at EYE OF THE STORM A/V CLUB.

and steady working on more souns releases. a remix for the brand new Subtempo Records, and other soon-to-be unannounced video and musical releases.


thank you vancouver new music

out to VNM for their great ambient music festival this year nomadic streams. very well put together, well attended, well recieved, and such a fantastic collection of artists with a unique and special synergy. the title nomadic streams really clicked for me - every artist existing in their own very different and well-developed universes. the whole 3 days felt perfect, and it was a true honour to collaborate live with a cast of many people i've been long term fans of loscil, rafael anton irisarri, dj olive, crys cole, and people i'm newly fans of steve roden, marina rosenfeld, lawrence english.

thanks all. it was a pleasure.

souns - coastal

new souns thing on panospria out this week. i wrote a bunch of words about it on the release page. those should do well to explain the thing.

might be better to DL it direct from cuz the panospria page might be a little messed up.

hope some folks dig it. was a crazy time for me. you know.. un-escapable unknown bass freq's all the time is an ideal setting to stay sane in.

small bit of support from unfamiliar (thanks, folks) and a touching message from a friend (feels good to be understood): "Listened to Coastal today with my partner. She said she felt "exposed" (in a good way) and like she'd had a brain massage. I felt like I'd been "re-landed" firmly on the west coast (in a good way). I also felt like I'd been cleaned out (in a good way)! Really great stuff."
