A Flying Start!

2019 is off to a flying start with two new releases to announce within the first few days of the new year!

First off, we have the release of "365" by tENTATIVELY a. cONVENIENCE!



tENTATIVELY a. cONVENIENCE's 2018 year-long music project and feature-length video has wrapped up and has been published to Youtube (https://youtu.be/ZaglhRjJYzU) and Internet Archive (https://archive.org/details/idioideo_verizon_365) (or just watch it in the player above). The project consisted of tENT filming himself playing music every day of 2018, mostly solo, but with a number of other musicians and sound-makers as well, of which I was thrilled to be included!

As if that weren't enough, there's also the release of a new compilation CD and digital album from Neal Retke's panpanpanaviandistresscall!


"Friends of Sounds and Noises, Vol​.​2" is (not surprisingly) the second in a series of albums in which Mr. Retke acts more as curator than as participant (although he does make a small appearance or two here) soliciting and selecting material from his large network of international friends and collaborators. And Vol. 2 does not disappoint with a highly diverse and entertaining range of experimental sounds and approaches being presented!

"Friends of Sounds and Noises, Vol​.​2" includes contributions from:

ELMS
Joel Crutcher
Albert Negredo
Wilfried Hanrath
Geingenschrey (Peter Wullen)
The Bim Prongs
Jaap Blonk & Nora Mulder
Antonella Porcelluzzi feat. Vaders Orchestra
Awkward Geisha
Eddie Lee Sausage & Infinite Article
Grime6i6ter6 / {AN} EeL
Peter Wullen - Glen Sogge - Emmi K
James Bailey
The Psycho Paranoid Flower Power Electro Shit Song Company

Happy Anniversary Recordism!

Today is the 34th anniversary of Recordism! Here's a poem:

Howling apes surround the compound.
Are the heliotropes in place?
Pick up the pineapple gun.
Prepare your inner goon squad.
You may fire when ready.

A cellophane window
Never
Negotiates with
Intelligent steam.
Verisimilitude
Evaporates in the
Riot of rakes and flower pots.
Shaky tendrils grip the
Antiquated machinery,
Requiring the immediate attention of
Your missing fingers.

Remember the instructions the old man left us with.
Erase the definition of soap.
Calculate the decay of ghosts.
Organize the gas canisters into coded messages for nuns.
Redirect the flow of Boy Scouts into the canyon.
Decide on a color scheme for your internal anatomy.
Invest in a new pair of scissors.
Separate the lips from the teeth.
Make the opposite visible.
