Random updates

Design & packaging for the following albums have been approved and are almost ready to send for printing/pressing:

thisquietarmy - Aftermath (Basses Fréquences, France)
Mains de Givre - Esther Marie (Textura, Canada)
Parallel Lines - 38:22 (Dead Pilot Records, UK)

Things are in motion for April 2010.
Can't wait to reveal the artwork... they won't disappoint.


thisquietarmy appears in the lovesliescrushing Q&A sessions hosted by Ambient Airwaves. You can read it on the LLC facebook fanpage (public).

It mentions my upcoming collaboration with Scott Cortez of LLC, coming out on 12" vinyl through three:four records. Scott was ahead of his time with his brand of guitar ambient for the last 25 years, and has been a huge influence of mine. It's a shame lovesliescrushing isn't more well-known... You should all discover/re-discover this band again. I just received the new 2-cd boxset from him, it's called "girl. echo. suns. veils." and it's amazing.


xxx film/burn/drone xxx night was a pretty good gig, fun... it was nice to have conversations with Dave Bryant, Roger Tellier-Craig & co. tried some new pieces with new video sequences... as always, i try to change something for every set.

"making music is just something you do to keep yourself from putting a bullet in yr head"

I also played last night in trois-rivières, did a tag-team set with Hoefizer, and ended the set with two drum/bass driven tracks... I thought it was appropriate because the event was listed as "electronica", and we played with this trance DJ and none other than 1-speed fuckin' bike. Aidan Girt's breakcore set was off the hook! very entertaining.
