CORRIDOR FOREVER: I've got a new album and it's available for actual mail-order purchase on actual cassette format with digital download through the lovely Unread Records. Cheapskates and skeptics can listen without charge on the relevant Bandkamp page.
PORTLAND MULTIPLE SHOW ALERT:It's going to be a busy month!
  • On November 6th I'll be backing up the legendary Jennifer Robin as part of the Outset Series. Revival Drum Shop, 1465 NE Prescott. Wednesday, November 6th, 8 pm (ends by 10). Sliding Scale $5-$15 All ages.
  • On November 22nd, Activity Universal (now three-person!) will be playing at the Jade Lounge, 2342 SE Ankeny. 6-8 pm hopefully, as part of a record release party for Mosey Walker.
  • And then on December 6th, Activity Universal will be playing Milepost 5's First Friday. Probably relatively early as well - we like to party early!
SPIRIT DUPLICATOR COMPLETES ANOTHER TRILOGY: For those of you longing for the halcyon days when I'd make three or four albums in a year and these albums followed some sort of obsessive pattern: I present to you the nearly-finished trilogy that is: Eternal Youth and Obscurity, White Fire of Eternity (completed, website coming soon), and Corridor Forever (AVAILABLE NOW on the legendary Unread Records.) All recorded in late 2012 and 2013. I'll go for a fourth album this year because I am crazy.
ACTIVITY UNIVERSAL UPDATE! We've added a third member, universal beat specialist and electronics wizard Jason Ferris, and the sound has gotten considerably more animated as a result. Some next-level stuff has resulted. We're playing a show December 6th at Milepost 5 in Portland - stay tuned for details. For those wanting to download or stream a bracing traditional two-person activity sound, may I present you FLEE?
OLDER NEWS FOLLOWS:
New projects and names! In the FOUR YEARS since I last updated, I've:
* Changed "Celesteville" to "Spirit Duplicator" and proceeded to emit six or seven albums;
* Started a new Language-Master-centric furniture-music duo, Activity Universal Associates, with Eric M. (and played several farmers market gigs!);
* Started a job, hooray hooray;
* Bought a house in unincorporated Clackamas County. New contact: 9616 SE 77th Ave, Milwaukie, OR 97222
New Spirit Duplicator albums available! You can download or stream them for free via Internet Archive.
New Activity Universal Associates albums available! Also available via Internet Archive. I would be deeply honored if you listened to these while washing dishes. Third album available at some point soon; I'm happy to report that it may be the best dishwashing-background-music album I've ever produced.
So much for CDRs! It was a pretty amazing technology back in 2000 but it's a decade later and nobody likes them. So please don't click on the "buy" tabs; instead, please download. I thank you in advance.
