a belated but hearty thanks to everyone who came out and took part in new forms festival 2016. it was a pleasure to put together two of the line up's for this year. the satellite gallery on friday night with lee bannon, strategy, x/o, rosen, wzrdryAV, and aspecial performance from mark van hoen. and the main room saturday night with untold, deft, swisha, hood joplin and c130. it's been nothing but positive and entusiastic responses on all fronts. happy this could happen in vancouver. special thanks to malcolm levy, scott w, emmy, rauiri, matt, and the whole rest of the team. cheers!
gratitude to emma hendrix, julie gendron and skálar for putting together an AV event in seydisfjordur, iceland that saw the world premiere of my and vasho pekar's video twin maples. vasho did the visual, i did the audio, and (soon enough) the general public will get to see it (presently figuring out the right outlet for the piece.. might even see a physical release). cheers
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.
full length cassette of edited live recordings from two intimate performances in vancouver in 2015. one at the emerald and one at the rio theatre (hence the track titles). very pleased to making the link with beacon sound on this - it's an incredible label that hosts a lot of great music. grab the digital/physical at bandcamp or the label website direct.
video is up from last years festival. thanks so much to everyone involved. it was such a great weekend.
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.
