digital fairy tales: album one.

Digital Fairy Tales: Album One

October 6th - 31st, 2016

Opening Reception: October 6th, 6-9p

Made in NY Media Center
30 John Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201

film week crushed all of the my time for the past month, hence the lack of posting...but now that it's over, I can finally announce a new show to which I've contributed work.

this time I'll find you is my contribution to the digital fairy tales: album one group show and, honestly, it's my favorite thing I've created in a while.

shot over the course of five days on location in new jersey and wisconsin, it tells the story of an astronaut who finds herself stuck in a temporal loop of someone else's creation, constantly searching for a way out.

the music was composed and performed by damian master, who most of you probably know from a pregnant light and colloquial sound recordings...harsh noise, ambience, and melody are all juxtaposed here to create a unique, otherworldly feeling.

I know I say this all the time, but I couldn't be happier with this piece. my incredible girlfriend does a fantastic job of capturing the sadness and isolation of the main character, and damian's music is just perfect.

there might even be a cassette release in the near future...

there are six other videos in the show, including one from josh graham, and everyone in the area should come and check them out. josh, myself, and a few of the other artists will be present for a Q&A during the opening on 10/6, so stop by, have a chat, and partake in the free wine and beer that will be available.

a trailer for the show can be found here.

plus, the show will also be projected onto the manhattan bridge as part of the light year series until 10p that night.

don't miss it.

EDIT: the score is now available for purchase via colloquial sound recordings, both digitally and on cassette.

flysch - madera document.

Flysch - Madera Document


46.67 MB

1. Loop I
2. Loop II
3. Loop III
4. Loop IV

here's a custom set of loops from derrick spotts, who makes noise and drone recordings as painted woman and purity of essence, respectively.

he also released this via willful industry, a sublabel of his own unseen force, where he's been releasing fantastic material for years now.

as the description says, no two sets are alike. the loops are short, but I've ripped them here into (approximately) five minute blocks.

use them as you see fit, or just listen to them as they are and fall into a trance.

it's not yet sold out, so don't hesitate to pick up your own version. the packaging is expectedly excellent and the process of making looping cassettes is definitely an art in its own right.

a lot of care was taken to create these loops, both in construction and recording, and it would make a great addition to anyone's collection.

highly recommended.

(no two are alike.)

cory strand - memento (totality).

Cory Strand - Memento (Totality)


97.66 MB + 97.66 MB + 9.86 MB

1. Memento (Totality)

ask and ye shall receive.

cory strand's "totality" reinterpretation of memento is just as dark, labyrinthine, and despairing as the film itself.

and it gives me the urge to remix the video to go along with the destructive audio...maybe someday.

I don't know how or why copies are still available, but grab one now.

it's an essential companion to what is still, in my opinion, christopher nolan's crowning achievement.

cory's also been uploading a lot of material to bandcamp lately, so grab some of that stuff, too.

finally, sorry for the all three .rar files and then unpack.

orgy of carrion - hymns of melancholic violence and plague.

Orgy Of Carrion - Hymns Of Melancholic Violence And Plague


17.33 MB

1. I
2. II
3. III

of the myriad bands to come out of defiled light (all of which are absolutely fantastic, in case you're unaware), orgy of carrion has been my favorite by a long shot.

this compilation from altare productions collects material from six different releases before adding these tracks, from an unreleased demo, on at the end.

most of this material is available online, so instead of ripping the entire thing, I'm only posting these last three tracks.

two tracks of scathing black metal and one track of ambience.

do yourself (and the band) a favor and pick up the remainder of the material on bandcamp. it's all there and it's absolutely outstanding.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

copies of this handsomely-packaged double cassette compilation are available from the label.

and buy stuff from defiled light while you're at it.

(support the band.)

Un Regard Froid - Devoir.Génétique.Violence.Hiérarchie


38.7 MB

1. Devoir
2. Génétique
3. Violence
4. Hiérarchie

power electronics of the highest order from un regard froid, courtesy of NSN.

searing tones and brutal textures, all over far too soon...looking forward to more from this project.

past releases are available via the artist's bandcamp.

great packaging on this one, too...large clamshell case, inserts, and a patch.

another worthy addition to the NSN catalog, and the next batch can't come soon enough.

(buy this [and more] from NSN.)

v. sinclair - metamorphosis.

V. Sinclair - Metamorphosis


116.56 MB

1. Defined By It's Presence Or Absence/Silhouette
2. Indéterminé
3. A Rope Taught With Considerable Weight
4. The Shoulder Is Constrained Within It's Form
5. The Small Of His Back

fantastic drones in a fantastic package from valentine sinclair and his clandestine compositions label.

incredibly refined, minimal, and well-designed.

some of his work has been a little too minimal for me, but this one is just right.

between this and the ligature release from earlier this year, clandestine compositions is really hitting a stride.

this isn't sold out yet, so buy this all of the other releases.

(buy a copy from the label.)
