ice storm again

I have been busy with many "in the works" projects. I now have in my hands, master recordings from Painting Petals on Planet Ghost, Rapoon and
All of these should see light before years end. Just a little bit of art and manufacturing to go.

I had planned on going to Chicago on Saturday to see Vertonen. I didn't make it because the mother of all ice storms managed to keep me in (and the power loss all over didn't help either.

Many shows coming up in the next few weeks. I will report on these soon. until then.................

almost forgot

Jean-Francois Fecteau will premiere a new track by Mykel Boyd titled "Je suis dans le trou " made just for his 500th radio show called Le Vestibule.
Saturday night from 9 PM to 11 PM on CFOU 89.1 FM, the University of Trois-Rivieres radio station. go to to listen live.
Check it out if you can. I'm not sure of the time zone??? I will try and listen too.

I'm back

I have been away from bloggerland for a bit. Here is what has been happening.
I managed to finally lock down the track list for the upcoming compilation cd titled "Radio interference from unknown orgasm". I hope to actually have this off to the press soon. Still waiting on the Francisco Lopez/Mykel Boyd split lathe. Any day!
In the mail this week I got the master for the upcoming split vinyl release with Rapoon. I am blown away by how good it is. More news on this release soon.

It was nice to get hammered by a blizzard here in the midwest this week. I managed to watch
"the science of sleep" and "the grudge 2" both of which kept me entertained.
I am really in love with asian horror films this year. A Tale of Two Sisters is one of my favorites.

Following in the footsteps of Allan Zane from Wyrm News.
I have started working on a new collaboration with Kenji Satori. He is a cyber punk writer from Japan. You can read all about him here.
Allan will be releasing WYRM featuring Kenji Siratori 'Artificial Sun' CD on the RoilNoise label very soon.

I will soon be sending the masters for a c-20 cassette tape (yes a tape) to be released on The amazing PsychForm label. No title yet.
Mr. Zane just released 'Gnothi Seauton' a c-20, limited to 50 copies and including a PTV cover!

I'm still digging through Peter Watson's "The Modern Mind". This book has been great in giving me ideas for new sounds and art.

more news soon.

feeling better and then a snow storm

I started feeling much better today. I know this is the case because I started freaking out about all of the stuff I have to do.
It snowed almost 9 inches today here.
I spent most of the work day looking over paper samples and trying to get ready for the taxes, that I dread every year.
I will be back to more interesting posts later this week. I am in recovery mode at the moment.
til then

almost back

I managed to do a few constructive things today. I started feeling a tiny bit better but it comes and goes. Today I ..........

Added Ram to the office computer
Started working on my tracks for various collaborations. Some new some old.
Watched Shop girl dvd..........still not sure what I thought about it, but it was a good distraction from being sick.
Watched The Black Cauldron dvd. I liked this one but wondered why Disney hid it away all those years?

My Heiko Muller painting came a few days back. It is as beautiful as I thought it would be.
I also got a wonderful book (handmade) from my friend and artist Eileen Arnow.
I plan on listening to all the cd's friends have been sending and catching up on shipping this weekend.
thanks for reading

sleep and more sleep

I have been fighting off some illness and finally gave in and got an antibiotic today.
So, to all the people I owe packages , I hope to have them in the mail early next week.
I have in my hands the master for the Painting Petals on Planet Ghost / Mykel Boyd split lathe. This will be sent off to New Zealand in a week or so. Robin Storey emailed me yesterday saying his master is on the way. While I have been sick I have been dreaming of record sleeves. This is always a good sign. I just wish I had the energy to work on this stuff.
so, I am back to dreamland. more news soon
