After a bit of a lull at the end of the summer, I'm diving into the fall with new pieces, new projects, and a new website. Marateck just finished a weeklong Midwest tour, during which we recorded an EP's worth of material in Chicago, and played in what has to be the coolest garage in existence in Indianapolis with Derek Johnson's Ampersand Blues Band. It was pretty bizarre, but completely awesome.
Also for the first time in ten years I bought a guitar, a Peavey PT-60, which is apparently "the most underrated guitar ever". Whatever, it plays great and sounds beastly, and it'll make its debut at Marateck's Selective Truths show on 11/7. ALSO ALSO I've got two premieres happening soon - Simple Machine for Bearthoven and Juiced for Friction Quartet. Check out Upcoming for more details.
After finishing my MM I could barely listen to music for a few months, but it's (thankfully) coming back. I've been shaking off my funk with Zu's Carboniferous, Swans' The Seer and Children of God, and Grisey's Partiels.
