loopool Field Recordings Project
For the past year once a week I have been releasing field recordings as free downloads to be used as source material in anyway you see fit.  Now the year is up, 52 weeks worth of recordings have been made available and it's time to collect everyone's submissions.  The plan is to release the comp as a free download and also as a cdr accompanied by an mp3 cdr of the field recordings themselves.  There are no rules for how you make your submission except that it must utilize recordings from the series.  Tracks should probably be shorter than 10 minutes if possible.  The deadline for submissions will be April 1st 2012.  Also I am looking for a visual artist to make a collage for the cover art using the photographs from the series.  Please contact me with any questions or suggestion concerning the project.  Please include with all submissions: wav. file, artist name, track title, your website and email.  Also please name the wav. file with your name and the track title so I can keep things organized.  Can't wait to hear what you all come up with!

Everything and Nothing / a Star named after loopool?
« on: September 23, 2011, 05:19:28 AM »
Why name a Star after LOOPOOL?  There is absolutely no good reason and that is exactly why the attempt is being made.  The company that sells the "rights" to Star names is essentially bogus and not recognized by the scientific community.  So again, why do this?  In this case the goal is to not make the goal, a fundraiser has been set up where the money can be kept either way (different % cuts apply), the hopes is that the goal is not met and that no Star will be falsely named after LOOPOOL, instead the money will be donated to SETI (Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence).  Trying to raise such a modest amount of money for the SETI program may seem odd and it is, but LOOPOOL's aim is to spread awareness of the SETI@HOME program where you donate your computer's unused processing power to help filter data collected by the program.  It is unlikely that we are alone in such a vast Universe.  We need to stop wasting time and find them!

New LOOPOOL album out now:
"Alive. Living. Live." on Ilse Records
For the past thirteen years LOOPOOl has created over forty records, yet live shows have been sparse, typically around once a year.  "Alive. Living. Live." recorded at three different shows in Seattle and Los Angeles during 2010/2011captures the variety of styles that LOOPOOL cycles through.  The record features four songs spanning over seventy minutes and contains covers of Coil's "Tattooed Man" and Gitane Demone's "Somewhere"  with Gitane herself (ex-Christian Death / Demonix) on backup vocals.  The album also features vocalizations from Butoh dancer Vanessa Skantze of the group Danse Perdue.  As well as covers the albums has two originals, the thirty five minute epic "the Pleasure of Cleaning Up"  an amalgamation of traditional Sufi and Japanese music, and "Notation Improvisations 3.6" a performance given for the release of the Notations Improvisations III album made with a player piano style music box.  Throughout LOOPOOL's history change has been paramount and rarely has genre been ascribed to, with this release it all comes to a head with a form of dark cabaret/ambient that ties the past thirteen years of work together in a package that perhaps makes more sense than a random sampling of his albums.  While it is impossible to pinpoint the essence of LOOPOOL's music this release gives an accurate picture of his influences and love of textural structures that balance on the edge of the disquieting.

and still available from Isle
"Break. Broken. Broke."

Hello All -
  My new radio show "Truth is Bullshit" debuts this coming Thursday 7/7/11 4-6pm on I will be spinning records from underground bands for the first hour and then will have live acts for the second hour.  If you are interested in being on the show or would like your music played please get in touch!

Secondly my new album "Alive. Living. Live." is out now in Ilse Records and is available here  it is a live album recorded at Teatro de la Psychomachia and Pillow Full of Drone in Seattle and Beauty is Pain in Los Angeles.  The record features Vanessa Skantze and Gitane Demone.  And still available from Ilse my last album "Break. Broken. Broke." available here

The loopool field recordings project has reached its 19th week.  If you are not familiar with the project here's the gist, once a week I release a field recording to the public, these recordings are for any artist who wishes to manipulate as they see fit for use in their music.  If you use the recordings please get in touch so that I can link your music to the page.  At the completion of this one year project I will be releasing a compilation of the most interesting work utilizing the field recordings.  They are available here

Also loopool has been featured on a new compilation of all databend music, databending is a process where one form of data is read as another and therefore the information gets scrambled.  This comp is free and features many great artist who have used this technique.  A truly experimental record, get it here

and lastly if you are in the L.A. area loopool will be performing at the Graff Lab on August 7th... see you there!

Culture Is Not Your Friend has put together this great comp to support the animal rescue efforts in Japan.  The comp is only $10 and features 48 tracks from loopool, Legendary Pink Dots and many others
you can download it in many formats here

loopool - Break. Broken. Broke. - out now on Isle Records
10 nightmarish drone soundtracks, illness made auditory forcing you through nausea and despair, only loosening the grip on your throat for brief moments of refection, just long enough to keep you alive so that it can plunge you down again.

For the next year, once a week I will be posting a free download of a 10 - 60 minute field recording.  The idea is to have as many people as possible use the source material, link their music to the page, and at the end of the year put out a comp of the best submitted songs.  Only four up so far because the project just started, but updates WILL be made weekly.
