Free download of Shadow Relics, through Monday 8/20 + new merch store

It’s my birthday weekend, and to show my appreciation for everyone who listens to my music (or might like to), I’m making my album Shadow Relics available as a free digital download through Monday (8/20).

If you haven’t grabbed it yet, now’s your chance! It’s also a perfect opportunity to share the album with any musicophile friends who might be interested.

Just head to the Shadow Relics Bandcamp page, click Buy Now, enter in the price ($0 if you want the free download), and proceed as usual. Of course, you can still also pay for it if you feel so inclined, and the $8 Limited Edition CD featuring beautiful full-color photographs of Antarctica is also still available there. :)

The Limited Edition Shadow Relics DVD is also nearing completion, so stay tuned for news on that. And speaking of which…

Rainbo Video merch and Æ art available through Bandcamp

Now that Bandcamp has added the option to sell physical goods, I’ll also be selling my non-musical merchandise and art (DVDs, paintings, prints, photos, etc.) in the Rainbo Video merch store. I recently added my acrylic painting Critical Theory #3, and will definitely post updates when more items are available.

Have a great weekend!

Show tonight

Show tonight at Hungry Brain. Very much looking forward to the performance. Everything I’m playing is unreleased, and 90% of it will be improvised. I’ll also be performing my first ever piece in just intonation.

Just to clear up some confusion that may have been generated by the Do312 event page: this is not a record release show for me, and I won’t be playing anything remotely like my 2007 hyper-sampling speed pop track “Colors,” which someone apparently uploaded to YouTube with the incorrect assertion that it was “techno.”

All that being said, I will have CDs of Shadow Relics for sale. The DVDs are very close to being ready, but not quite yet. Sorry for the wait, but I think it’ll be worth it.

I’ll be playing a free show on Monday, May 21st at Hungry Brain here in Chicago. The show is the May edition of DreamBait, a monthly event serving as a hub for ambient music, textural composition, and improvisation in Chicago. It highlights “artists with an experimental and minimalist aesthetic.”

I previously performed at DreamBait in June of last year for the release of Shadow Relics and am looking forward to returning. These days my music is becoming increasingly pop-oriented, so (for the time being) this will be a rare chance to see me perform some unreleased and improvised ambient pieces live.

On the road

Producing on the road. Forthcoming track: “Zero Kelvin.”

I sing on this one.
