boy these blog entries get away from me… sorry.. wish i could be making them more regularly…
let’s see… well, the SKoltz_Kolgen postpiano remix cd is released… it’s really great stuff. ken and i are quite honored that dominique and herman spent such time making the cd…. and, don’t forget to download the term. release of the post piano open remix project… amazing stuff in there.
we’ve got 2 great cds coming on LINE next month… the much anticipated Alva Noto cd “For”…. and mine and richard’s cd for Hiroshi Sugimoto’s “seascapes” photography.. titled, as richard and i have continuously titled our works.. “specification.fifteen”. Both of these cds should be ready to ship next month. it’s actually my first ever work on the Line label.. after al these years…
one more piece of pretty exciting news. some of you may know of Savvas Ysatis.. and artist i did an enormous amount of work with in the early/mid 90s. well, after 7 or 8 years… savvas and i are getting back together and making a new cd. he’ll be here at the studio for 10 days next month… we have some plans of what we’ll be doing, but who knows what will really come out. after all of these years of growth and influences and not working together it’s going to be really unique and special.

so.. “northern” has been available for a couple weeks now.. or, a week+.. and i can hardly keep up with the orders. thank you to everyone who has been ordering, and hopefully enjoying it. we’ve nearly sold out of the first 1000 copies already. wow. also, a couple of really great reviews have popped up which i will be posting soon.
i have also decided to put the “northern” postcard set in the online shop. a few people have emailed us who bought the cds in stores in their area but also want the postcards.
today i received the new Fourcolor master from keiichi sugimoto. this will be the next 12k release and slated for june. we don’t have a title yet, but it’s a great sounding cd so far (i’m listening to it now for the first time). Naoko Sasaki (Piana) does vocals on one track… more info on this release as i get it!
and now, for something completely different… some of you old-time fans may be interested to know that i’m getting back together with dietrich schoenemann and jason szostek for a couple of Prototype909 reuinion concerts. we thought it would be great fun to break out the analog equipment and jam in a loud sound system. will be cleansing, for sure. we have 2 shows coming up: may 27th in detroit as part of the Detroit Electronic Music Festival and then june 8th in Philadelphia.
