I was born on the year of the goat, and it makes me smile that this year is going to see releases from all of my projects; Jatun, Biltmore Dive, Adaptive Machines, High Light and Dunes of Bandon.
There’s 3 debut releases coming up, and I decided that I would not start up individual websites for these bands, and the same goes for most social media websites (except for FaceBook because it’s easy to manage and track). Instead, I am going to create a website “hub” that hosts information on all of my various projects. This way it is much easier to manage all of my projects and in the end it will give you the chance to always see what I’m up to, in one convenient place.
The debut High Light album is coming out this April on cassette and will be available digitally on iTunes, Tamarack Music is releasing the album. This material is all improvisational with a heavy focus on moody ambient music that feels directly influenced by sci-fi films from the 60’s to 80st. It’s mostly synthesizer based (we use field recordings occasionally) using analog & digital synths, a eurorack modular synth, and recorded live directly to a DAW with very little overdubs (usually 1-2 tracks of sound effects) and no post production.
The debut release from Adaptive Machines will be an EP, coming out on Crime League. I’ve just about finished the release (actually recording the last song today) and will send it off for mastering very soon. This material is all 100% eurorack modular synth, and recorded live directly to tape with no overdubs or post production.
News about the other upcoming releases will be shared soon.
