Follow me on my new adventures with my modular synth here.
And find the Haunted House/Halloween album (available at Hanson Records in Oberlin, Ohio and Tobira Records in Japan) I wrote with my friend Sense From Nonsense here:
Over the pandemic I decided to bite the bullet and start down the modular synth/eurorack hole. It has not been disappointing. In fact, after owning it for three months I wish I would have invested in this earlier. So much control over the sound, and so much fun! This will keep me entertained for quite awhile I suspect.
Also, I always wanted to make a Haunted House/Halloween album and this summer it happened. Tom Nelson, from the Denver band Echo Beds, and I put out our own interpretation of the old Disney record – “Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House.” It turned out pretty good, take a listen at the link above.
Not much else to report…..pandemic is still making life boring but I will be flying to NYC in January to play modular synth on someone’s record and the record label is paying for it, ohh la la! And in the Spring I’ve been asked to help produce an ambient/experimental rap album with some folks in St. Louis. 2022 should be an interesting year!
My first solo album is done. It should be out in a month from now. I’ll be releasing it on my Bandcamp page and as a limited edition CD, with a poster and some additional artwork. It’s called “Making the Pythons Dance” and it’s my lo-fi, fucked up, badly recorded love letter to the American Southwest I grew up in.
And in the end, I love you all! Take care of yourself, it’s going to be a long winter!
I’m playing the organ in a new band called “Lifers”, kind of a power pop band, with some past members of Born Dumb, Hot White, Bloodloss, and Ultra Boyz! Our first show is coming up soonish opening up for Prism Bitch from Albuquerque, New Mexico!
