Particle Theory: Spotify

2016 project: Put my solo work from the last few years onto Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, etc. The permanency of these commercial uploads requires (re)mastering and attention to details often overlooked in the flurry of my usual ad-hoc self-releasing. Particle Theory (2014) is first up. Every spin puts a shred of lettuce on a sandwich and thus always appreciated.

Drifting Moon / Spinning Earth (drum remix)

So this is awesome. Producer and musician Lee Rosevere asked if he could “bash and crash” over Drifting Moon / Spinning Earth, so I stripped the original drum and percussion tracks and sent him a pre-master studio file. From 3000 miles away, he came back with the glorious result above.

From his SoundCloud description:

Westy Reflector recently posted this song of his:

Melody Chaos

Inspired by New Orleans, where making melody out of chaos is the art.

So there you have it, we wrote our ticket out
We’re headed anywhere we want to choose.

We never really planned it, just never had doubts
We were going somewhere – never gonna lose

Yeah, the stakes are high
But our vision’s clear
Maybe neither of us is pure, but our

Roadside Justice

24 August 2014, 2:34am

In front of the firing line
You’ll look up at the blue sky
And we’ll trace the route to each other’s eyes

In the wake that’s left behind
As the sounds of the gun shots die
You’ll leave this world with your head held high

Don’t look for justice at the side of the road

Lee’s liner notes:

When this project was launched, I emailed my online buddy Westy Reflector @thereflectors to see if he’d be up for a collaboration and I was thrilled he agreed. I’ve wanted to do a big huge ambient landscape with his glorious guitar tracks and this seemed like a perfect

sum + difference [disquiet0130-filteredmelody]

4 notes. 3 intervals of 3. then 12 pedals. Made mathematical sense, so the title references “An Individual Note” by Daphne Oram, this month’s Junto reading selection (I’ve only gotten as far as pg 50, tho). Image is my pedal board through a kaleidoscopic app.

Finally had an excuse to put my Pigtronix Infinity at the head of the effects chain.

welcome to the interzone [disquiet0110-wsb100]

source article

This New York Post headline (“I Could Have Saved Him”) screamed at me from a newsstand on 5th Avenue and 9th Street in Brooklyn a couple days after receiving this week’s challenge, and I couldn’t shake it. As the weekend closed, I looked at the front pages of all the other papers in town with this challenge in mind, including a couple …

intransitive disapperance [disquiet0108-freebassel]

PROCESS
Connected to this assignment, and wanted to do some small part to keep Bassel’s cause and case out front. I’m not a foley artist and field recording is not my game, though, so consider this less a soundscape than a track that might run over closing credits.

Married some royalty-free congas, tambourines and trap kit loops on an Acid timeline.
Selected two samples …

All The Rage

She spent 27 years in an inland town
And she dared herself to rage every time she stopped looking down
And then the ad in the paper said
“Dreams come true, just get downtown and see you know who –
If you know how to rage, then we want you!”

She bought an audition dress at Main Floor in

Particle Theory

Life imprints sentience on the particles we cede back to the universe upon passing. Death is decentralization, not expiration, of consciousness. Each of our muons and protons and electrons comprises the cumulative wisdom of all that has experienced life before. We are each one, and we are each all.

My friend John Arthur passed on 22 October 2013. I met him through my wife, …
