Late May 2013

Lots going on here.
In the past few months I was lucky enough to travel to Minneapolis to see Jason Soliday and Jon Mueller's Death Blues perform at the crow with no mouth concert series.
It was a pleasure to meet Jesse Goin and his wife Allison.

I performed a solo set in Columbus,Oh at The Fuse Factory's Frequency Fridays show with Controlled Bleeding (NY), Truus de Groot (CA)  and experimental music collaborators Mike Shiflet + Jeff Chenault.

I also performed solo in Lexington, KY at Al's Sidecar with many local noise guys. Discovered Catacombs,  my new favorite radio show. http://wrfl.fm/

I have also been to many great shows including Winters in Osaka, Olivia Block, Takehisa Kosugi and Locrian.

My photo show in Spain went well. I should have some books with cd's soon in the store.

Re-issue of my split 12" with Mike Shiflet available here

Newest audio release available here
The Brume / Bokeh cd is at the pressing plant.
The Mykel Boyd / Vertonen 12" is at the pressing plant.

Looks like a busy summer promoting releases and performing.
More news as it becomes available.
be seeing you.....

Somnimage News

I am happy to announce the birth of two new projects.
These are both in hands and ready to ship. Find ordering info in the store.

First up, after many moons is...

Rapoon / Mykel Boyd split 12"
Robin Storey was once a member of Zoviet France. Now he records under Rapoon. He creates beautiful ethno ambient sounds.
Mykel Boyd once saw Zoviet France perform. He makes recordings of things and then alters them to sound like planes taking off.

standard edition 12" on white vinyl in black on black letter pressed sleeve. limited to 200 copies = $22.00 post paid in USA, $26 post paid the world

artist edition includes 12" on white vinyl in white on white letter pressed sleeve and two 10"x10" letterpress prints, one from each artist
limited to 100 copies, signed and numbered. = $65.00 post paid in USA, $70 post paid the world

also now available is....

Francisco Lopez "untitled #272 [antarctica variations]"

Release format: mp3-160kbps file in Metal USB Flash Drive.
Edition of 300 drives.

Recorded using hydrophones under a 100-meter thick ice sheet on the Ekström ice shelf in Antarctica.
This will be considered a major work by the renowned Spanish sound artist.

In the near future (hopefully this fall), we will have a cd version of the Rapoon / Mykel Boyd record.
It will feature the tracks from the lp as well as remixes by Mystified, Theory Anesthetic and Allan Zane.
Once we work out the edition size it should be off to the pressing plant.
Also this fall we will attempt to finally catch up, with the release of the Vertonen / Mykel Boyd split 12".
As usual,many more interesting projects are in the works.
