1) New EP – Six Improvisations for Computer and Guitar
I’m pleased to announce the forthcoming release of a new Anonymeye EP, Six Improvisations for Computer and Guitar. Recorded over two days in a “back to basics” frenzy in April, with some light editing/EQing a while later; Six Improvisations… consists of six edited improvisations for acoustic guitar and computer, and is a good indication of some of the live sounds I’ve been creating this year. The good folks at Perth based/internationally focussed label Twice Removed Records are releasing the record on 1 December 2012 in a limited edition of 150 3″ CDRs (with download code), and as a standalone download. Pre-orders are available now. the Anonymeye bandcamp page for the EP has a free download of Two, and direct links to purchase from Twice Removed (which also has some free audio).
2) Other recent recordings/releases
Compilations: Recently I’ve contributed tracks to Woven (Twice Removed, CD/download), Strain Of Origin II (Feral Media, download) and 10 [A Decade of Feral Media] (Feral Media, playbutton/download) compilations. All albums have a heap of great artists on them, and I’m proud of my contributions too, so check them all out.
Reworkings/remixes: Since the last mailout in June I’ve had the pleasure to create reworkings of other artists (Afxjim, Heinz Riegler, Silver Sircus), and have had the same done to a track of mine (Alpen). Wonderful working with everyone involved! Hopefully will have a few more to add shortly.
Comps, Splits, and Other Bits: A work-in-progress “compilation” on my bandcamp, with out of print/unreleased/rare/miscellaneous tracks. Check back regularly for more uploads.
3) Live performances
A few upcoming live performances in Brisbane to round out 2012, and one for Melbourne in early 2013. I’ve been lucky enough to receive funding from the Contemporary Music Touring Program and will be making my way around Australia in early/ish 2013. I’ve already got a fair few places in mind, but am always keen to visit/re-visit places – so if you’re keen to get something additional happening, please do get in touch.
Friday 15.12.12: Brisbane: Real Talk @ The Waiting Room (Browning St, West End): EP launch with Automating [Melbourne] + Green Nose + Brainbeau. $10, 7:30pm. I’ve put together a lineup of some really interesting/enjoyable acts for this show. I’m really looking forward to it and would love to see you there if you can make it!
Sunday 10.02.13: Melbourne: Supernaturalist @ Gasometer (Smith St, Fitzroy): I’ll have copies of the new EP for sale at this show – and will be performing live along to a nature documentary. Fun times! More info on that soon so stay tuned.
I’ve also been fortunate enough to receive Contemporary Music Touring Program funding from the Australian Government, so I will be touring around the country in early/ish 2013. I’ve got some time to visit pretty much anywhere/everywhere, so if we’ve been in touch in the past, or you’re keen to have a chat, get in touch via email. Also keen to do some overseas touring in 2013, so also get in touch.
4) Movember 2012
This November I’m taking part in the Movember charity, attempting to grow some facial hair, all for good causes. Any pledges of $25.00(AUD) and over made before November 30 will be most appreciated, and furthermore I’ll record an Anonymeye improvisation/track just for you! Details of that here, and my Movember page is here. Donations of any size welcome of course, if you can spare it!
Thanks as always!
