a new video for my song Oh Life! from the EP 4 Songs made by Christian Heinrich. click the picture above to watch on youtube. the EP can be downloaded from bandcamp.
a new EP i’ve just finished is now available on bandcamp for $0. it’s called 4 Songs and it has 6 tracks, 4 of which are songs.
i just completed my latest project, which is an unofficial soundtrack inspired by the post-apocalyptic 1988 videogame Wasteland.
the music is partly ambient, a mixture of acoustics and electronics, and varies in style from ambient synth drones to spaghetti western guitars to church organ dirges.
the new New Weird Australia compilation album is out now as a free digital download, featuring live-in-the-studio recordings done at fbi radio over the past year. my track Waterfalls/Flying is included. go have a listen!
i’ve made a new video for my track “Twelve” from my 2010 album Sleep Patterns. when i say made, i mean i found old public domain footage and used it more or less unedited as a vision to go along with my music. the film is from 1906 and features one long take from the front of a street car moving through san francisco just a few months before an earthquake devastated the city killing over 3000 people. there’s something eerie and sad about seeing a lot of people on film who are all long dead by now. i hope you find it interesting.

right, so, 7 months between updates. i feel an explanation is in order. maybe next time. as for what i’ve been doing musically, which i guess is the focus of this website, i’m still working on an album that i started in 2007 (with some ideas dating as far back as 2005), currently referred to as “mynewalbum”, hopefully to be released in early 2012. this one is a pretty big project that has been going on the whole time in between everything else, will be my first album of made up (almost) entirely of songs, and will be the closest thing to a summation of my entire ideology if i have such a thing.
i’ve also been working on music for a few short films and other video projects, still working on a few videos for songs from Travel Ideas, and recording a new short cd of short songs, but my next release will most likely be as producer for experimental pop artist The Mystic Shithead which i’m rather excited about. more details on that one to come soon.
so ok i guess there’s an explanation of what i’m doing. i had sort of felt like i was getting nothing done at all, so even if nobody reads this, i’ve managed to make myself feel better, and that’s no small feat.
more to come soon! i promise!
On March 16th I will be performing at the Red Rattler in Marrackville. I’m doing a live re-scoring of Fata Morgana, a film by Werner Herzog featuring a surreal journey through the Sahara desert in search of mirages and much more. I’m also making an album of some of the new music I’ll be performing to the film, which will only be available at this show (for free on entry).
6 Favisham St, Marrackville

so anyway, my updating and word-giving here has been pretendous as of late. i guess i haven’t been on the internet much? i don’t know. anyway, i should definitely at least say that my new album of ambient guitar music is now available from the fine people at monstera deliciosa. it is entitled Please Be Quiet And Play Your Guitar, Vol. 1 and is 14 tracks of improvised loops, textures, and subtle melodies. influences range from the ambient sounds of stars of the the lid, brian eno and aphex twin to the melancholy melodies of the dirty three.
if anyone is in the mood for that you can get a copy from the label here.
stay tuned, as it were, for my soon to be released ambient/noise album sleep patterns and the still-not-released travel ideas. some actual songs on this one!
