Moving / Collected Audio

Unfolding Cassette Available

New cassette (+download) available from Carbon Records.

Unfolding is a work that got out of control. My original intent was to assemble the collection of harmonic drones as a single track, but the more I listened, the more I felt the elements were conflicting with, rather than complimenting, each other. So I split them up into two sets, "unfolding" the monolithic track. I believe the sides of the tape work much better as individual tracks, but if you're so inclined you can certainly have a go at playing the digital files simultaneously.

Available from Carbon (via handy Bandcamp link above)

Or direct, for $8.00 ppd. (US only.)
Paypal to monumental . documents @ gmail . com

I also have a few remaining copies of my Dithering CDR for $8.00 as well.

Live in Oakland

With the turning of the calendar, I'm hoping to get back to one of the original goals of the blog: posting more music.

To that end, here is one of my favorite sets of 2013, from the Fractal Mind Hut in Oakland. It was one of the few guitar-less performances from last year instead focusing on field recordings made around the Bay Area and in Yosemite National Park.
