I have a new little project that I’ve started over on Mixcloud. It’s a conceptual playlist called Colour Theories.
Let me describe it.
Each playlist in the series will consist of 8 tracks: a ‘theme’ track which I’ve written and then 7 tracks by other artists ‘numbered’ not with digits but by the colour spectrum(ROYGBIV). Each song has something to do with that particular colour, either something in the title or that just the mood that the song gives me.
It’s a fantastic playlist, if I do say so myself, with tracks from Helios, Amman.Josh, Hammock, Moshimoss, Lowercase Noises, Stray Theories and Aural Method. So head on over to Mixcloud and give it a listen!
My Colour Theories track is now available in the shop.
*just a note – I have since deleted my account Mixcloud and thus the show no longer exists*
I am extremely happy to announce that my very first full length album is now my very first physical CD!
It is a Limited Edition of 50 and includes the CD, 8 page booklet and a unique one-of-a-kind piece of artwork all packaged in a hand stamped and numbered envelope. It also contains 2 bonus tracks(‘equinox‘ & ‘in the decay of shadows(piano only)‘) only available on the CD.
It is on the local Toronto label Polar Seas Recordings run by Brad Deschamps and Mike Abercrombie of North Atlantic Drift. They are a couple of wonderful guys.
Below you can see a few examples of the artwork. Every one is different!
I woke up this morning finding out that one of my tracks ‘in the decay of shadows’ has been included in a podcast mix by Micah of Stray Theories!
There are some amazing tracks included in the mix, some by my musical heroes!
So wonderful to be included in this.
I highly encourage you to check it out here.
There has been lots going on lately! Last week I released my very first full length album of ambient music called transit. Check it out if you get a chance. So far I’ve been getting lots of positive feedback on it so I guess people are connecting with the songs.
I also just put up a new ambient sketch video on my YouTube page, but you can see it from the new videos page on this website. It’s a fun little piece using multiple delays in Guitar Rig.
I have a new track, ‘a cascade of trembling stars’, that I wrote specifically for the Moore Music compilation. The album was put together by David Mantel and is being used to raise funds for the victims of the devastating tornado that went through Moore Oklahoma in May 2013.
If you can donate please do on the album’s Noisetrade page.
I also designed the album cover.
