Scenic Railroads, Live at ErstQuake 3
September 2006

I remember quite a bit about our time in NYC the weekend of this festival - great duos by Phil Niblock/Jason Lescalleet & Aaron Dilloway/Lasse Marhaug stand out - but very little about my time on stage. The short list of things I do remember about this set:

• Very mixed reaction from the crowd
• My oscillator started smoking towards the end
• Christof Kurzmann enjoyed it

That said, it's one of the few live recordings I've enjoyed revisiting over time, perhaps due to the pretty stellar recording job done by Mr. Jesse Kudler.

At Land

So I (and by I, I mean Joe Panzner) finally synced the live soundtrack I performed last year for Maya Deren's At Land with her original film.

Doesn't feel quite as good to me as it did with a projector and a nice PA, but if you enjoy it in all it's compressed glory, I highly recommend giving it a go with the full audio spectrum on the CD recording available from Snip-Snip.

In the Queue, On Deck, Up Next, etc.

Here's a brief rundown of forthcoming releases. People tend to think I'm slow getting stuff out, but in reality there's quite a bit out there with labels and things should be seeing the light of day soon.

Masters sent off:
Omnivores LP on Lost Treasures of the Underworld
Supreme Trading [solo] 3" CDR on Dokuro
Supreme Trading [trio with B. Murray and B. Owen] MP3 on Compost and Height
Stalemate CD [collb with Daniel Menche] on
Gutter Divas CD on Dokuro
split 10" with Lorenzo Senni on Presto?!

In addition to those, I'm currently working on mixing and editing collaborations with Raglani and Ryan Jewell, a release for Carbon Records, and a stockpile of solo and Scenic Railroads material.

There's also one completed solo album I'm demoing around as it really needs to be done proper. Get in touch if you have a label and some interest.

[EDIT] I knew I forgot one. Add a digital reissue (pro CDR, I believe) of the Mykel Boyd/Mike Shiflet split 12" on Somnimage to that list.
