4 Poems and The Return Of Blk/Mas

I’m pleased to announce that I have four poems up in one of the best blog/zines around for challenging literature, Otoliths. It is another issue packed with exceptional writing, if you’ve never checked out Otoliths you are missing out.

The electronic/noise/experimental project of Shawn Blackburn and myself, Blk/Mas has finally returned with a new album download. X + Quantity Of Me may be our best effort yet, and I hope you’ll check it out, along with all the other stuff we have to offer over at The Awareness Factory.

 

A little more Classwar…..

Classwar Karaoke 0027 is online now and ready for your consumption. My track He Who Has Found His Place (Amid Nothing) is included alongside many talented experimental artists. My track is possibly a little more quiet and moodier than expected, but it represents an exciting and different direction. As always, I’m proud to be included in this excellent series.

Cut Up The Dotted Line….

Out now from Oneiros Books CUT UP! An Anthology Inspired by the Cut-Up Method of William S. Burroughs & Brion Gysin. It is edited by Joe Ambrose and AD Hitchin and features a large cast of talented authors including Kenji Siratori, Claude Pélieu, Nina Antonia, Billy Chainsaw, Cabell McLean, Mary Beach, Marc Olmsted, Allen Ginsberg, Spencer Kansa, Michael Butterworth, Robert Rosen, Nathan Penlington, Sinclair Beiles, Gary J. Shipley, D M Mitchell, and Edward S. Robinson. I’m very honored and excited to be a part of this project. Both Burroughs and Gysin have been a tremendous influence on me as not just a writer, but as a sound artist as well.

Next up we have a project I can’t believe I forgot to blog earlier. It is a new cd from Electro Faustus, titled Just Sign On The Dotted Line. Electro Faustus is known for making some seriously awesome noise effect modules asked artists to contribute tracks using their devices. I have one track on this collection that also features Merzbow alongside some other cool projects that you need to hear.

New Tracks From Blk/Mas

The landmark Classwar Karaoke is out now featuring a slew of impressive experimental artists. I am proud to once again be a part of their diverse surveys, this time as a member Blk/Mas.

Speaking of Blk/Mas, we have recently taken some previously unreleased tracks from 2013 and put them together as an album over at The Awareness Factory. It’s titled ….(just) Existing and you can download it here.

Bombard Singularity

Bombard Singularity For The Sake Of Skin is my newest noise net album. It is a meditation on the theme of technological singularity, and it is the first album I did appropriately comprised entirely of laptop using the technique of databending. Pay as much or as little as you want, even nothing…. just dig it.

Audio New And Reimagined

23 Seconds Ov Time returns with vol. 8, and I am proud to be making my second contribution to the series. It’s a very cool audio project where all artists contribute 23 second long tracks in which form a sonic collage.

Fellow local electronic artist Mirroribis recently rendered an ambient reconstruction of my track I Felt The Universe, Or Perhaps Nothing. He did an amazing job and I hope you’ll check out this and much more of his work.

New Split

The new split between Blk/Mas and Whitey Alabastard is available now as a digital download from Steele grinder music. It features two tracks from Blk/Mas (the electronic/noise project of longtime friend and collaborator Shawn Blackburn and myself) and one track from fellow Florida experimental artist Whitey Alabastard. You can snag it here as a “name your own price” download!

23 Seconds

23 Seconds Ov Time vol. 7 is out and available for streaming or download from the Autonomous Individuals Network. I have one track featured and as the name of the compilation suggests all tracks are 23 seconds long. Short and sweet. A cool download with interesting artistic parameters.

Had fun in my return to St Pete and I think the Blk/Mas show and our new sonic journey was a relative success, if I must say so myself. Thanks to my buddy Hal Harmon of Vasectomy Party we have some video.
