Hi guys, I hope this update finds every body well this Halloween season. It’s been a while since I have updated this blog and I actually have several things to tell you, so let’s get to it!
I have one track on the Save The Children Compilation from the aquietroom net label. This comp is full of all sorts of ambient and drone goodness and I am proud to be a part. All proceeds go to the Save The Children organization to help provide aid to the women and children of Afghanistan.
Another compilation has just dropped from Hello America Stereo Cassettes, a cool project that puts out digital and cassette releases fusing music, noise, and literature of all types. My track “Analog Machines” (which dropped a few months back with Beir Bua) is featured on their fall collection comp.
Dreich is an excellent literary journal hailing from Scotland and I am proud to have several poems featured in season 3/Number 12. I am proud of this one as I am in excellent company,
Speaking of proud, I am excited to announce I have two poems online over at the always excellent Beir Bua Journal out of Ireland. Beir Bua is a space to watch for sure, as they are making moves and doing some interesting things, including launching a barrage of interesting titles with Beir Bua Press.
Which brings me to the biggest news, and I guess it’s okay to spill the proverbial beans here, my next book titled <Reboot> More So… Disconnected will be released March 2022 from Beir Bua Press! I’m super stoked to have my next book brought into the world from a press that is shaping up to be one of the premier experimental small presses! I would like to give a huge thanks to editor Michelle Moloney King for selecting my work to put out into the world.
I have also have booked my first reading of 2022 (and my first reading in years, actually). More news on that in the future!
Until next time, Happy Halloween!
I’m very excited to announce two new audio poems up over at Beir Bua Journal. I hope you will take the time to not only check out my pieces, but everything that Beir Bua Journal and Beir Bua Press are up to! This wonderful experimental press out of Ireland is doing some amazing work and I look forward to having some poems featured with them later this year! I’d also suggest subscribing to their YouTube as well so you don’t miss a thing.
In my mailbox today I was pleased to find my contributor copy of Florida Speaks from Poet Plant Press. It features the work of two dozen artists musing on this sometimes crazy, sometimes great state of Florida. This is the third anthology from Poet Plant Press I have been a part of and it is an honor as always.
The book signing and reading celebration for the book is coming up February 23rd at the City Coffee Company in beautiful St Augustine Fl. I’ll be reading a few poems and if you’re in the area come by listen to some poetry and snag your own copy!
The newest issue of Red Fez has hit the internet and I have another audio track included among much quality poetry and prose. You’ve probably already heard of Red Fez, but if you haven’t you need to click the link now and check out one of the literary sites the web has to offer.
The new issue of one of my favorite online zines Red Fez is out now and I am once again lucky enough to find myself in the company of some fine writers….. this time in the form of audio with my poetry/noise piece Revolutions Pass Through Me. I hope you’ll give it a listen and then stick around for the poetry!
My 2nd net-album of spoken word and experimental sounds entitled Transmissions From The Awareness Factory is now available through my net label Awareness Factory Recordings. Also, my first album is also available, as well as recordings from Stickfigure and Zilbread. Best part, all are free downloads. Check out Awareness Factory Recordings, bookmark it and return often as more sounds are on the way.
I hope all my local peeps can make it out to Lakelands Evolution records on Saturday October 8th for a night of noise, experimental, and electronic sounds known as Intersection. As if that’s not enough we’ll throw in some poesy, art, and video…. all of the experimental variety.
We have some of the best noise and experimental acts in central Florida coming in. We have The Uh, J Thelonious, Trotskys Watercooler, and Wahuhi Stoteric. I will be pulling double duty that night as I’ll be performing in Stickfigure,and with my newest noise/spoken project Flies And Buddhas.
The show starts 7ish and is only 3 bucks. C’mon and check out something that very rarely comes around these parts.
My audio track The Day Is Dying, So Am I is included on The International Email Audio Art Project Volume 10. Download and explore all the tracks by over 60 international artists, and while you’re at it check out the last nine volumes as well.
Two short poems by yours truly are up today at O Sweet Flowery Roses, an interesting little journal well worth checking out!
Also, it’s worth repeating that my net-album of spoken word with ambient soundscapes Five Dollar Buddha is out now and available as a FREE download.
It may seem apparent to the one or two fans I have that I may be heading into different directions, I guess so. I’m feeling way different and my head is in different places. The road I’m on may not be appealing to many, but hell…. I suppose I’d rather be unpopular that stagnate in the same prison of words that I have been wrestling with for the last year.
