two new cds...

pre-orders are available for lichtung, a collaboration with machinefabriek on the new "eat sleep repeat" label out of the UK. info click here. the disc comes out of a collaborative installation by artists Steve Roden, Rutger Zuydervelt (a.k.a. Machinefabriek), and Sabine Bürger at Gallery Vayhinger, which originally included video and an installation of dried leaves. The CD is comprised of edits from the original ‘Lichtung’ installation music, as well as an edit of a live performance that Rutger gave at the opening of the exhibition, using pre-recorded sounds provided by Steve Roden as well as leaves, twigs and water gathered in the area. Rutger also designed the packaging.

also, just released on 12K, steve roden and steve peters "not a leaf remains as it was", which harkens back to both of our earlier works with objects, voices and instruments. this was an improvised all acoustic recording process, no pedals, no mixers... just turtle shells, harmonium, zither, bells... stunningly recorded by doug hare in seattle during a jack straw artist residency last year. stunning cover and mastering from 12k head honcho taylor deupree.

more coming in march... and i believe that 2012 will make up for the lack of releases over the past 3 years.

The 12k release sounds fascinating. Interesting light shed on work with acoustic instruments and also your work with languages, which I've always admired. The samples are gorgeous, really gripping and very unique. Wow... I am very excited about this ! Can't wait !

Support small record labels indeed !
