Was delighted to play a streaming set on Nick’s International Virtual Garage, a fantastic channel where electro-acoustic performers play in the diasporan space we’ve been working in throughout the pandemic (and thanks, Nick, for inviting me!).
I did an hour set of music and stories, with a top-down video showing my instruments as I improvised my set, after which I edited and mastered an album version of the set, which is available via Bandcamp:
Was inspired by the beautiful weather today and sat on the porch to edit some recent material into a collection on Bandcamp, appropriately titled I Skugga, which is Swedish for “in the shade,” since I’m revisiting my college Swedish lessons during the pandemic. It’s an abstract collection of recent ambient experiments and field recordings.
It’s priced from 0 to pay-what-you-will, but I’m content with zero.
Showed up with my increasingly stable rig (details below) for another run with the Baltimore SDIY Group‘s concerts at the Electric Maid Community Exchange in the Takoma neighborhood of DC (and MD). It’s always a bit of a mystery of what I’ll come up with in these experimental improvisational episodes, and I followed a nice melodic, relaxed modular set from Hovercraft, so I felt like I could delve into slightly glitchier, pulsing, wavelike territory as a counterpoint. I think it came out quite well.
Played a very good set with alternating.bit last night at the National Electronics Museum’s Electronica-Fest 2017. Simple rigs, eschewing Rimas’s modular synths and my digital tablets, and we had a great time.
