Trio with Ben Owen and Brendan Murray

Here's a fresh upload for you: a trio recording with B.Owen and B.Murray from the same Brooklyn concert as the set which eventually became the Supreme Trading 3".

It's available here as a free mp3 from Compost and Height. If you are unfamiliar with what Patrick and Sarah have going on over there, definitely dig around. There's a lot of good material waiting for you.

Editions Shiflet Mixtape 03:
Abbreviated Epilogues

The tracks here were all recorded during my final few months in Japan. Three of them are excerpts from an extremely limited (made to order) 3-hour, 3-disc set called Shiso Epilogues. I've always wanted to make some of that material available to a larger audience without betraying those who supported me when ordering for the original set. I think this is a happy medium.

Two four-minute compilation tracks bookend the ten-minute Epilogues excerpts. As they were all recorded at roughly the same time, they make for a very cohesive album; one I could easily imagine myself putting together in Spring of 2007 had things gone differently.


01. The Stone and The Storm
02. Wide Valley Amp (Excerpt)
03. Homecoming Pulsewidth (Excerpt)
04. Sponic Transmitter (Excerpt)
05. The Shiso Mist

"I don't know about the Shiflet collab, just because I'm not a big fan of digitally created sound. I feel that computers are the realm of porn and video games and don't have much of a place in art. I have a hard time seeing how a pure expression of one's inner communication can be successfully navigated through a realm of 1's and 0's."

This was forwarded to me by a collaborator who is in the process of talking to labels. The name of the offender was withheld and I'm not particularly interested in finding it out; it just makes me smile and shake my head a bit. Rather than offer any kind of response, I'll just the words speak for themselves. Wow. 2009.
