If I were to attempt to articulate as eloquently as I could possibly muster the summation of the past few months, it would be, in a word: phewf!
Long story long, it's been a wonderful whirlwind of happenings, creative concoctings and collaborations, extensive instrument practice, live performances, and copious amounts of blanket-fort-hermit-holing in-between.
In September I'd had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Kali Yuga & The Genesa Project at FozzyFest -- easily my favorite Western Canadian electronic music festival, on the effervescent sandy beaches of Lake Koocanusa -- as well as another smaller local event this past weekend. It's always a blast and a half to join those two and bring my instrumental widdlies to their DJ sets, as their selection of tunes, often being well outside my usual stylistic modus operandi, challenges me to think outside of my regular creative parameters and try my heckin' utmost to tastefully layer a live element over-top of their already incredibly well crafted flowing mixes. We'll definitely be gearing up to do as many more of those as we can muster in the coming year, with more deetz to be announced as they come.
As far as my solo tune-tinkers are concerned, work has begun (and is well under way) on a debut album -- I'm about three tracks deep right now. Shan't say much more than that at the moment, not the least of all because I've little else to go on at this time, but rest assured I'll be leaking information once I has it ironed out.
Finally, I'm in the stages of polishing up a solid 'nuff press kit to start pitching to promoters and event organizers in hopes of booking some live appearances in the coming months. As such, I'll be consistently tweaking some elements of this 'ere website o'er the next few weeks, and may potentially even upload a short-ish set (a half hour or so) for a sort of, "here's how the eff this sounds live" caliber of previewing samplitude.
As per always, maniest o' thanks for your continued listens and support, friends, and I'll shower you in specifics soon!
