Blk/Mas collaborator Shawn Blackburn and I have a new ambient/drone project in the works entitled Thieves Of The Bleak Earth. The new year will be here soon bringing recordings and shows, but until then I would like to remind you that there are plenty of sounds over at Awareness Factory Recordings to keep you busy. There you will find Blk/Mas and some solo stuff, along with older projects like Stickfigure and Zilbread. You can stream them free or buy the digital downloads for cheap, which is always appreciated.
I would also like to invite you to check out my YouTube page where you can find live noise performances, glitch art, and more. I plan to update more frequently there as well, and plan to start with some spoken word videos really soon. While you’re hitting up my social media, make sure you follow me on Twitter and Instagram too!
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.

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.

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.

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.
