From the EP From Here
Due to some uploading issues, the first one was more of a “Tuesday Morning Noise Session”, but oh well. This is a new thing I’m planning to do regularly. Each one will be a bit different, but the idea is to do some type of live-recorded (no audio editing) audio/video noise session every Monday night on Steemit/DLive. I don’t have the bandwidth to do an actual live stream, so the videos will be pre-recorded, but the audio recording of the performance will be left as-is. The first one was posted late last night:
Note: upload issues make this more of a “Tuesday Morning Noise Session”, oh well. First of hopefully many weekly noise sessions for DLive, recorded “live”, no editing (I lack the bandwidth to do a proper live stream). Audio is a mix of hardware and software.
A rather nice review of the recent split with Mrs. Dink here:
Crash Symbols radio show:
The FSA website is back online after a hacking incident. Due to my own negligence, the most recent backup was missing pretty much everything since getting the site back online the first time. The actual content was/is on my PC, so it’s really only news posts that got lost. I think everything that was here before is back, and then some.
The biggest news that’s missing is releases from my musical projects, and there’s been quite a few. Here’s some links to catch you up:
EP, album, 20-year anniversary collections @ Skin Contact bandcamp: https://skincontact.bandcamp.com/
See the main SC site for further news on remixes, collabs, and other stuff that happened over the last year or so.
Fugue State releases on Degenerate Trifecta: there has been a digital EP and a split with Mrs. Dink on cassette/digital, which I’m very excited about.
In other news, Fugue State Audio is now on the blockchain. I have started posting on Steemit, and have uploaded a bunch of stuff from the backcatalog on Musicoin.org and Dsound, which is a sort of SoundCloud-alike linked to the Steemit platform. I haven’t completely decided to ditch everything else in favor of these yet, but I will be focusing more on these from here on out.
Simultaneous Aural Detriments, Vol. 3
This is a noise compilation of sorts I took part in, organized by The Network Of Individualized Sonic Extremism. The reason I say “of sorts” is because, rather than containing a bunch of individual tracks from various artists, it consists of one 15-minute track containing layers from each participant. Each artist contributed 3 minutes of audio, which could be spread across the 15-minute timeline however you wished. The other artists who contributed are Digestion Machine, Monskor, Teuthis Galore, Radioactive Wastelands, Nygatoria, SPACEGHOST, and The Dreaming Corpse.
Skin Contact – Revisionist
Contains remixes of tracks from past SC releases, plus a few previously unreleased tracks. Two of these tracks (debase and downcycle) come from deep in the vaults, around 1998.
Skin Contact – Abort, Retry, Fail
The source material used on all 3 of these tracks was the last recording made on my old PC before it died. It was a short bit of knob-tweaking from one of my DIY machines, which has been timestretched, cut up, and otherwise mangled into an EP-length collection of drones and noise.
Both of these are available as pay-what-you-want digital releases in multiple formats from the SC bandcamp page.
