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
