On Saturday night, December 27, I relaunched the Eklektik Elektrik Kolektiv, or EEK!, in a “flash festival” at the amazing La Vita Bella coffee house in Longmont, Colorado.

…even if you know it won’t survive long enough to tell people about it.

 

As I prepare to wrap up another issue of Recording, I am looking at a bunch of personal/musical items in flux right now, which I must remember to bring to your attention as they come to fruition. B...

Well, knock me over with a feather!

 

 

Palace Of Lights is a reborn incarnation of the exceptional small experimental-music label of the same name from the 1980s, headed up now (as then) by K. Leimer, whose early LP Closed System Potentials I treasure (not to mention a f...

I am pleased to announce that I’ve been slated to appear in the ongoing series of Fog Music releases from netlabelAural Films. These releases number eight so far and have been scheduled ahead through the rest of 2014 and into 2015, to eventually total 24 hours of music...
