Hello and Happy Halloween! I’m back in the US for a few months and I have some new albums (new and old) and concerts coming up I wanted to tell you all about.
MAGICK CITY DREAM CONCERT
Saturday 11 Nov, I’ll be doing an overnight dream concert at Magick City
in Brooklyn. As a concert experience these durational soundscape
performances last from night until early the next morning. These
concerts are an immersive, supportive sonic environment. A gentle sea of
ambient found sounds and soft tones unfold over an evolving eight-hour
concert. Limited tickets remain, purchase here. View some footage from a overnight concert below:
Also this will be an album release show for my new album Dissolve coming out on NOREMIXES. Anyone who buys a ticket to the show will get a free download of the hour-long album. More on this soon…
LANDSCAPES 3: ICELAND
During my recent residency at Listhus
in Olafsfjordur, Iceland I spent a lot of time hiking and taking in the
auditory and visual splendor of the land. At night I would work in the
recording studio, editing, augmenting and treating the recordings. The
third in the Landscapes series was released this week on Bandcamp (with a cover photo by fellow resident Alfredo Esparza).
There’s an ancient magnificence in the landscapes of Iceland, I hoped to convey that through sound. I recently heard a quote from Irish poet John O’Donahue on the podcast On Being that captures the essence of my recent interest in landscape recording.
Whether you believe you are walking into dead geographical location, which is used to get to a destination, or whether you are emerging out into a landscape that is just as much, if not more, alive as you but in a totally different form. And if you go towards it with an open heart and a real watchful reverence, that you will be absolutely amazed at what it will reveal to you. And I think that that was one of the recognitions of the Celtic imagination: that landscape wasn’t just matter, but that it was actually alive. What amazes me about landscape, landscape recalls you into a mindful mode of stillness, solitude, and silence where you can truly receive time.
:DIBBA-SOTA, QUIESCENT & VXVII ON ITUNES & SPOTIFY
Lastly, I recently remastered some of my most popular albums (including the 8-hour long sleep music album Quiescent) and reissued them to iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google, etc. So for people for that don’t use Bandcamp you can now stream or purchase these albums on your favorite platform.
Just search for “Mikronesia” in your favorite music platform and melt into timelessness…
