Not a regular occurrence here, long wordy posts, but a bit has been happening over the last few weeks and in the interests of brevity it may be best to push all the boats out at once…
Firstly, the quite amazing “Wolven (A Modern Interpretation)” by Ian Hawgood is now out through Komu/Hibernate and can be located here - http://hibernate-recs.co.uk/project/ian-hawgood-and-friends-wolven-a-modern-interpretation/
It was an honour to be involved in such a mighty collaborative effort; Aaron Martin made the whole thing sing, Dag Rosenqvist as usual puts everyone to shame, and the reworks by bvdub are something else. Strongly recommend checking it out if you haven’t already, and the CD looks great.
Secondly, “nijisousaku” has recently ticked over 400 downloads - thank you to all who have taken the time to have a listen, thanks also to those who donated when downloading. It’s appreciated. In related news, “Armstrong” was recently featured in a mixtape by the excellent blog Son Of Marketing, which can be found here - http://www.sonofmarketing.it/myamxtape32013/
Thirdly, The Rothko Chapel gathers steam - first track went out as part of Tessellate’s mammoth Earthtones compilation here - http://tessellaterecordings.bandcamp.com/track/the-carrefour-plane - Pete and I just finished work on an interesting piece for an installation in NZ, and other very talented contributors have been giving other tracks some shape behind the curtain. Aiming for a release by end of year. Perhaps a double album…..
Last but by no means least, new Hessien material is in the wings. The masters sound great, and we’ll have details about it as soon as they come to light.
Over the coming weeks I’ll be turning my hand to some remix work with an old friend, working on some production music for a local studio and starting on a new y0t0 project based around post-WWII immigration/radio broadcasts. Plenty to keep busy with.
Hope all are well.
