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.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s a remix I did of Goitia Deitz‘s excellent track “Romance.” It will be appearing on their forthcoming Remix EP, which will feature additional remixes by Tom Furse (The Horrors), The KVB, Clout!, Croms, Ghostape, Harry McCanna, and Death in Plains.
My track “Ultraviolet“ is featured in the short film Atlantis, written and directed by Matthew Ornstein. The film “dramatizes the final space shuttle launch and its significance in the history of space exploration for all mankind.”
Atlantis will be screening at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival today, January 30th, and this Friday, February 3rd. Screening details are available here.

Forgot to mention: I wrapped up my Goitia Deitz remix of “Romance” just before the holiday. Sent it to the band and they dig it. I’m looking forward to hearing the full EP, which will also have remixes by Tom Furse (of The Horrors), Croms, Clout!, KVB, and Harry McCanna.
