FINALLY my ep is going to come out. mostly the delay was my fault, but the last few months there were (i guess) some distribution problems (apparently caroline link got absorbed into emi or something) so it was in limbo. but i just got an email saying it's gonna happen in the next couple of weeks. woooooo! now i need to write "a couple of lines" about the songs or "the context of the ep" for a one sheet that the label head will write. i have NO idea what to say.
anyways, that's cool.
otherwise i've been working a lot. MTV yo. and i moved, so that is still an ongoing process of setting things up (2 months and counting...) and I am doing a performance in one month (!!!!) based around making art to be in sync with alpha states (and various hertz moving up through the spectrum). o0o0o0o0o0o0o0ooooo rad. it would be easier to do this ambient style, but i'm one of the "dance" artists. so i'm finding nifty samples and detuning. some people are doing crazy performance pieces with shortwave radios and magnets and all sorts of awesomeness. there are tons of visual artists too, including a couple of my local favs. stoked.
soon when my house is actually set up i will buy monitors and have a proper permanent setup. that will be excellent. but for now it's hard to work on music. le sigh. good thing i have a deadline or else i would procrastinate. errrrr.......
yay good news!
that may be the cutest cat picture ever made. i'm going to go pour boiling lead into my eyes for contrast-it's just that cute.
and wtf is up with your ugly ass new condo?!?! OMFG U HAVE TERBL TASTE
thanks maeng. please don't hurt yourself.
hmmm no edit, that was for astroid.
and thanks roshi, and no thanks to jdg. except for recommending good restaurants. yeah we hate our place.
I think it's OK that other peoples' (read "strangers'?") happiness/success pleases me, but it still feels strange to say.
frnortnor, I liked your description of your music on your virb site - or maybe you'd like to update? or it's gotten stale for you?
Anyway, I thought it was unpretentious and informative. just my 2cents CDN (1.89163 cents USD).
so you think thats' what she wants? that was just my bio- I think she wants something that pertains more to the actual tracks.......i dunno. I like reading about other people's successes too.
you can always spoof the bio piece or notes about the tracks, make up shit, like dylan always did. might actually be fun that way.
congrats on your ep.
sweet! i can finally give you monies! do you accept american dollars?
ya OK I guess now that I re-read, it sounds more like she wants something more specific anyway, about the new tracks in particular.
So I guess I have nothing further to offer. But you seem to be a capable writer, so I'm sure you'll manage. <---haha best i could do, sorry
WAY TO GO!!!
WE LOVE YOU!!!
SPARK. VERO. MIA. MINOU.
Get monitors NOW and then you'll be inspired to finish setting up.
Hooray for frnortnr. release sounds awesome.
i guess what's needed as a write-up is something which sums up the essence in the release and the essensce in your bio. in a way like:
after releasing "my circuits hurts" on " blbla records, vancouver dased artists squareroot of evil unites forces for a new sonic adventure. erratic soundscapes and eclectic 8-bit loops team up for an idm-masterpiece full of insects like tiny noises and the bittersweet melodies.
monitors are a hell of an inspiration. shelled out loads of new stuff, when i got mine.
great news Jen
you can see audiobulb 1 sheets here - if that is any help
but at the end of the day write it in a style that matches your personality and music
david!!!!! that is soooo helpful! thankyou! now i know what she wants! yay!
yes, you can all give me money soon. muhahahahaha.
spark, i would get monitors now but honest the room is a pile of boxes. soooooooooon......... and so sorry about the NFF deal. i suck.
