I discovered that the cassette version of this had sold in 2014 for nearly £20 and another copy was available for £40, so I thought I’d make it available as digital for the much easier to swallow price of seven dollars.
As I sit here in the bunker near Heathrow Airport, tin foil hat on to protect me from David Icke’s reptiles and remote control ‘planes, I receive news from my Polish brothers at Zoharum that the new Nagamatzu double CD ‘Neural Interval’ has hit the streets. You can hear some of the tracks and buy the CD’s or digital versions here. It’s limited to 300 copies, so get moving if you’re into this stuff!
Also in the pipeline, my other brothers in Leipzig, those of the Loki Foundation, plan to re-release my S.E.T.I. album ‘The Geometry of Night’. This will not be a simple re-issue. Rather, it will be accompanied by a new ambient sister album entitled ‘Companion’.
As alluded to in my last missive, Andrea Bellucci has been patiently waiting while our bunker had its rebuild and I am now back on track working on our joint album.
Finally, Astro Myrmex will be presenting his data logs in the next few months. I’ll keep any interested parties informed via this site as, although my Facebook band pages still exist, I no longer use the site myself. The Lagowski and S.E.T.I. pages are run by my Polish and German brothers mentioned above, while the Nagamatzu page is run by Stephen Jarvis of Nagamatzu/VII Sins/Motorcade Records.
I was invited to release a S.E.T.I. album on a nice looking label a few months ago, so have spent many evenings creating tracks and am pleased to say the album was finished a few weeks ago and has already had the stamp of approval from ‘the label’. They release very limited runs of glass mastered CD’s – I will of course announce further details in due course. When it will be released is another matter, but I am very happy with the direction this album has taken and fans of S.E.T.I. will notice a big difference between this and ‘Final Trajectory’. Some of the sounds were played at my recent gig in Berlin and more will be previewed in Poland at the Gorlice Ambient Festival in July.
This doesn’t mean my relationship with Loki has ended and of course I hope they will be happy to release my material in future, but as I was invited and like the look of ‘the label’, I thought it might be fun.
For the Gorlice festival, I have been extending my video backing, as my set will be at least an hour long :-)
In other news, there are plans afoot for a bunch of Nagamatzu CD releases on a Polish label, which may be familiar to some of you from a few of my recent releases :-) Stephen Jarvis has been hard at work sourcing graphics and we are at the stage of cataloguing tracks for the albums, which will include some never before heard demo tracks and possibly live noises too.
Finally, I have been working with Andrea Bellucci (‘Red Sector A’, not the voluptuous actress!) on some very hypnotic techno-type material and we hope to find a label for it towards the end of the year.
Don’t forget Nagamatzu vinyl and other releases of mine can be found at my Discogs Seller page
