11/30/14- Well, its that time again- Winter in Wisconsin. This means for a musician that you find a hole and write until the sun finally comes out in April, with the rare exception. Looking at my shows list, my fate is no different. So here is what I will be doing in the meantime:
Sometime in the near future, there will be a split between me and the fantastic Jason Soliday coming out on Matt Taggart of PCRV's own Fluxus MT label. Stay tuned for when that will happen. It is probably one of the stupidest things I have done in years.
In January, Mountain Language will be recording a brand new set of eight songs which will hopefully become an LP. If you are a label that likes putting out heavy and noise music, do hit us up.
Near the end of the winter, I will begin working on organizing the disparate elements that will become Impure Gold, pt. II and the Impure Gold box set. The box will include both LP's on limited colored vinyl, archival photographs from Gabriella Schwartz, a book featuring Gabriella's photography and the writing behind all of the pieces, film works by Wes Tank, TW Hansen and Neil Gravander, and potentially more. I'm excited, and very nervous it won't come together. Here's hoping.
FTAM will be getting a new batch together, featuring the final installment of the Phoned Nil Trio Architecture Series, the debut tape of a new group called A Bleaker Teen Lip, the aformentioned box set, and maybe more? If you want to help move this along, buy stuff from me.
I will be hitting the road in the spring, hopefully going down to Texas to do some more solo works. Let me know if you desparately want me to come to your city.
Also sitting on a set of recordings with Tatsuya Nakatani, Amanda Schoofs and Jason Nanna. If you have ideas, get at me.
Have a good winter, everyone!
