Indeed. I actually did get some requests once I switched my programming over to "Darkdrone Radio". Darkdrone attracted the attention of some ambient artists and even got me on some mailing lists for promo cds.

It was a lot of fun, but I grew tired of paying the fees to broadcast, so I stopped playing dj a couple of years ago.

I look to the various quality podcasts and entities like Stillstream to carry the torch.

"Do you get a lot of requests? No"

That is hilarious!


Ditto that! Hilarious, and the modesty that comes from a great artist sans ego.

Meanwhile, we like the zombie eyes better, but since we can't figure out if you can Lasik yr eyes that way, way to be, studly!

Oh, no worries, guys, I have an ego.

For example, when I was 18, I am very sure that I knew everything.

Since then, I don't know as much, but my Mom thinks I know more.

Go figure.

Go figure.

Wethinks that's the way it tends to go. At 18 we were ready to conquer the world and knew everything - and well, we do know more than our Moms. Had to teach one algebra so she could work as a teachers aide. But we digress.

Will be sending hopefully mucho CDs soon!

Winding down with just a few releases in early to mid 2010, then much less thereafter.

2 are on cassette, on a German label called Licht Und Stahl, due out March or so.

1 is a collaborative 3" cdr featuring Nocturnal Emissions due out mid-January. This has an actual original piece by Noc. E.-- most excellent.

Finally, there will be an actual pressed cd coming out, though this has not been officially announced, so I can't give more info.. It is not Hypnos, that I can say, and will come out in Spring.

Otherwise, not much is on the horizon-- fans of Mister Vapor might enjoy the cdr coming out on Eg0Cide Records in a few weeks. . . "Songs Of The Deep Woods".

I don't mean to neglect fans, but I will be digging in for more polished, rarer releases.

My Dad gave me my first computer in the late 1980's. It was, I admit, a Mac. Served me well through college.

Back then, I did not use it for music, though. I used it to write papers.

Ahem, and there is an Austere "demix" of a Mister Vapor track that will be appearing somewhere in the coming year. All the goodness of Mister Mystified's work, completely turned to shite by us. But as is our way, we'll put it out into the world nonetheless. 1/2 ;)

Thanks to Thomas for letting have a go at demixing musick of his. We are truly honoured.

P.S. The Mac 128 (if we trainspotted that photo correctly) was an awesome beast - a computer that you could use for 10-15 years without buying a new one! One of us used them in high school, the other was still helping grad students use them in the early '90's. Great machines!

"Songs Of The Deep Woods" by Mister Vapor is out. So that leaves a collaboration with Nocturnal Emissions ("Engine Room Glow") due out very soon, and then a couple of cassette releases due out in March through Licht und Stahl.

There MAY be a pressed cd released later in 2010, but it is still in the works and there is some contention about it. We shall see.

And, finally, there are some collaborations-- one or two-- with people this board would recognize, at varying stages of completion.

That may sound like a lot, but for me, after 2009, it is totally like taking a vacation. And I don't mean to brag.

I am negotiating right now with label "First Fallen Star" over my first professionally printed cd. It will be called "Passing Through The Outer Gates". It's a commission of sorts-- I have been asked to sonically explore my own death and afterlife, according to my personal beliefs.

It's been an interesting journey as a musician, sometimes a little campy, other times quite profound, if I may say that.

The cd should be out in mid-2010:

"Passing Through The Outer Gates" has been completed and Frederic Arbour at Cyclic Law has mastered the 8 tracks. I am happy with it. The label, "First Fallen Star", is trying to assemble visual art for the cd cover.

This is my first "real" cd, so I am taking things pretty seriously.

I am not sure when this will be released. Probably mid-2010.

Just got news-- the collaborative 3" with Nocturnal Emissions is due out in mid-February.

The pressed cd, "Passing Through The Outer Gates", is coming along. We have mastering and cover art and are looking for a visual artist to do layout for the digipak.

Today I have been working on putting together a dvd of mystified music videos. Should be available in 2010-- 9 or so videos, by several different video artists.

That dvd is ready-- 9 music videos. One is a slide show, the other 8 are animated. Video artists include myself, C.P. McDill, and Johan Nederpel. The master is en-route to a French label. They are going to take a gander, and possibly release the dvd, in PAL or NTSC by demand. If so, should come out Autumn of 2010.

btw, these updates and more are available here, plus an RSS feed:

Hey Thomas!
Before the DVD, isn't there a Mister Vapor collaborative album to be released on a french label too?  ::)  ;)
