Everything and Nothing / Re: Do you speak English with an accent?

Yah, you betcha'. Real good, now. Im from Minnesoata doan'tcha knoa!

Yes, I have noticed differences in speech patterns varying from state to state and sometimes different parts within the same state. A big one that I've noticed about most Minnesotans-regardless of state locale- is the seeming addition of an "a" towards the end of certain words. If I pay close attention any given day, I can usually hear it from most people. I thought for sure I noticed other non-Minnesota midwesterners pronounce things like "milk" and "pillow" closer to "melk" and "pellow", which is funny because my wife (total Minnesotan says "Melk" very distinctly!

Interesting stuff!

Systemich is by far, one of my personal favorite electronic records of all time. Ambient, glitch, dub and experimental all rolled into one! I enjoy repetitive music A LOT, if it's done well and this album shines brightly in that respect. Oddly, I'd only ever heard 94Discont (sp) besides, and wasn't as taken with it...maybe I should give it another go around as well as some of their other stuff...

Cool to see them mentioned here!

« on: September 09, 2008, 07:52:40 PM »
Hello everyone-

Jamais Vu, the long awaited follow-up to my album Reponse is now available for free download at the newly launched Endless Ascent net.label.

During the years of my absence from composing music, many people made contact with me to make their appreciation of my work known and to ask when, if ever, I would release another deep/atmospheric work. For those who've waited, I apologize for the delay...I hope it was worth the wait. And fear not, oh lovers of deep and ethereal ambience...there will be more in the future!

Head on over to www.endlessascent.com and have a look around...if you like, grab a copy of Jamais Vu.

Enjoy!

Everything and Nothing / Re: What does this music do to you?
« on: July 28, 2008, 06:54:49 AM »
Since I can't listen to music at work, most of my listening occurs in the car during longer drives and commuting. Despite the fact that with ambient or drone music, the music player must fight with the inheret road noise, I am always surprised by how well a certain track or piece can sort of 'remove' my subconscious from the real world and bring it into a place all it's own-while, at the same time, not distracting me so much that I am a danger to myself and others on the road! This is especially true while driving at night-when the lack of beating sunshine allows the eyes to relax...giving the ears a greater range of hearing...good times!

I just saw this last night...looks really intriguing. I'm a pretty big Zach Snyder fan...loved his remake of Dawn of the Dead, and 300 truly upped the ante that Rodriguez and Miller set forth with Sin City in my opinion.

Everything and Nothing / Re: Do you still want to learn?

I agree with you, Mike. I know some people that just don't care to have any kind of driving passion or interest in anything outside of what you called "busy work". And that, I find sad...

At the same time I decided to open the musical floodgates again, I also decided I wanted to finally try my hand at electronics building/circuit bending/DIY gear, etc. I got my feet wet, started reading, learning, fiddling, soldering, building...

I had some minor success, I had some collosal failure, I learned a lot in a short amount of time and I felt like I was uncovering something that I'd wanted to find for sooo looong.

Then I woke up one morning and realized I hadn't recorded a second's worth of audio in two weeks. The happy feeling of accomplishment dissipated immediately.

What's important to me is making music...it took me a number of years to get back to that realization, but I did...

My wife and I don't have kids-just regular jobs and such, so we do have ample free time, but there are other interests that take up our time as well.

I am still doing some occasional DIY stuff with a friend of mine once a week or so, but I no longer intend to pursue gear development with any kind of passion because that's the time I want to devote to making music.

Each person is different and Mike has a valid point that it can be disheartening to think that you, or others, can so easily fall into a lull when it comes to advancing one's knowledge base.

I've decided that little bits work best for me...things here and there...piece by piece...

Hi SunDummy-

Good to see you here!

Yes, it's definitely different than what I've done in the past, as will be some of the upcoming music I have slated for release. There will, however, be plenty of "old school" Exuviae coming out-for those that have waited patiently...

As for the live set itself-all instances of static, hum, hiss and crackle are completely intentional. Mostly I wanted to test myself and see if I could pull off something darker and more aggressive...with percussion!

Oops!

Thank you :)

Hello eveyone-

I've got a free download of my recent live performance up on the new site: www.exuviaemusic.com/audio.html

I'd love to hear what you guys think of the direction I took on this particular set of music.

Thanks for listening,

maybe I've been into gear way too long, but this just struck me as the funniest thing I've seen in a while...totally fell for it/didn't see it coming, etc.

Thanks APK for the laugh!
