Deep thanks to Mayuko for playing Bells and Birds on her Play Vertigo show yesterday. A show devoted to the New Year and the Japanese monk Ikkyu san. Playlist is here
and to listen go here. A great way to start the year! I would also check out her past shows or tune in every Saturday at noon. Thanks Mayuko!
Sound now heard as song is a new series I am putting together which compiles recent and older tracks that were never published or appeared on various compilations.More details on my bandcamp page.
Audible Landscapes, which was originally released on the Sockets CDR label in the autumn of 2007, is now up on Bandcamp. This was my first full-length release. I plan on putting up the physical release eventually. Hard to believe, but some of these recordings date back to 2005-2006.
Landscape Tempos are audiovisual views (scenes, occurrences) that reflect the rhythm and tempo of isolated moments in urban and rural landscapes. This edition includes tempos 17-24 shot in China, Japan, France, Canada, and the United States.
Listening to Landscapes is a program which explores how audiovisual artists engage with urban and rural landscapes and how sound can be a central component for exploration and discovery.
