Atlas Sets is a new project in the Atlas series. Atlas Sets will be a collective conversation about musical map-making, contemplative practice, creative community, and artistic intention.
I will be collaborating with various musician friends in current and future duos, trios, quartets, and larger ensembles for a series of recordings that will be included in a box set due for release in 2015. Accompanying the recordings will be a catalog of transcripts, session notes, photographs, sketches, scores, and other ephemera.
The first meeting has been scheduled with percussionist Ted Byrnes, Tuesday, 28 February 2012, in Pasadena. Documentation of the initial discussion and subsequent recording date(s) will be documented at Atlas Sets.
Radia has been officially released on Dust, Unsettled. This is a limited edition run of 100 copies and is shipping now. A special one-sheet promotional page is available as a PDF.
“The album is a quiet masterpiece of minimalism, its slow guitar tones feeding off the subtle location recordings with underpin the entirety of the release. Radia is a set of recordings that reveals something new, in miniature, with each successive listen.” –Dust, Unsettled.
Radia can now be pre-ordered from the label Dust, Unsettled.
Radia, the third of a trio of solo projects, will be released in early 2012 on the label Dust, Unsettled, curated by Brian Lavelle, Edinburgh, Scotland.
