Radius Episode 30: J. Soliday
Memory fades. Memory fails. The act of observing a thing changes it. Recordings of a piece rarely sounds like the piece performed. Focus changes, different aspects rise to the fore.
Radial Variations is a collection of thirteen reinterpretations of a piece J. Soliday performed at the former Enemy performance space on July 20th, 2012 in Chicago. Line and room recordings of the performance were sped up, slowed down, chopped, looped, replayed, and reprocessed through the system in which they were originally generated. The resulting works should not be considered definitive versions, neither individually nor as a whole, but merely as windows into an ongoing continuum.
Occasionally I will participate in the Disquiet Junto SoundCloud group where a set of instructions are provided every Thursday and each participant must produce a 2-5 minute track following those instructions by the following Monday. Below is a SoundCloud set with the tracks I’ve created for the Junto so far.
Las Reglas de Ruina
three hour and thirty three minute Halloween mix… a lot of drone and texture, a bit of black metal, noise, and assorted other things layered and mixed for your listening pleasure
A remixed and remastered version of my 2008 Maximum Magnetics cassette, now available on Bandcamp.
I finally set up a page on bandcamp, and I’m slowly uploading a few old and out of print releases. First up is Temporary from 2006.
Recordings from my set on My Castle of Quiet are up on WFMU’s Beware of the Blog:
