Kazoo Project

Not only does Kazoo Fest start on April 6th (2016), but a project that i’m involved in kicks off the festival!  Know Your Neighbours is an audio/visual collaboration between myself, Jenny “Omnichord” Mitchell, Scott “Shopkeeper” Haynes, and Devon Kerslake.  It will take place at Silence in Guelph right after a screening of Chad Van Gaalen’s “Tarboz” at 8pm!  For more information, check out the Kazoo website here.

Bands vs. Filmmakers 5: May 23!

One week until Bands vs Filmmakers 5 at the West End Cultural Centre! I will be debuting an original piece that I composed in collaboration with filmmaker/dancer Freya Olafson. The proceeds of this fundraising event will go to support Cinematheque in continuing to remain awesome well into the future. If you still need convincing, watch this high-intensity promotional video:

Hovering at #2

I’ve been hovering around the number 2 spot on CKUW for the past few weeks, unable to unseat local heroes The Unbelievable Bargains from the top spot…which is fine by me! Thank you CKUW for the ongoing support!

Radio Transmission

In anticipation of my new EP coming out in the spring, I will be stopping by CKUW on Sunday evening to play some tracks on the C.A.R.P. show!

My visit will include an attempt to cover The Bonaduces live…which is a hint for what to expect from this EP that I’ve been so secretive about.  You can stream CKUW online HERE, or just tune your dial to 95.9 fm.
While I have you here – donate to CKUW this week during FUNdrive!!!

Album Review: The Big Takeover

Matt Lee at The Big Takeover just reviewed Barren Immensity as a part of his top ten list for the month, and I must say, it’s pretty glowing:

Ssaliva remix

Not only did I remix a Ssaliva song (with two S’s, not the corny Rn’R band with one S), but I whipped up a video for it using hand-processed film footage that I made:

For the remix itself I added a crunchy beat and some analog synth lines to the original sample.  The original Ssaliva song from his album “Sync Thrills” can be found on Vlek Record’s page:
