Sonoio – Red Remixes

Alessandro has employed some of the top electronic musicians to rework his Red album released earlier this year. The list of remixers include Telefon Tel Aviv, Alan Wilder (Ex-Depeche Mode, Recoil), Eric Avery (Ex-Jane’s Addiction, Giraffe Tongue Orchestra), Daniel Myer (Haujobb) and more. In addition to the free download of the remix album, Sonoio has a limited edition 7″ vinyl single of Scientist with Drumcell’s remix.

The Scientist vinyl 7″ is $8 and if you’re quick, you can grab a test pressing limited to only 6 for $30. Hi-definition downloads of the remix album are $5.

Also, there’s a holiday sale going on with back catalog CDs, posters and digital downloads!

Charles Cohen – June 2010

It’s a bit overdue but I’ve been meaning to move a couple videos from ExposureRoom to YouTube. Here is Charles Cohen from a clinic Xart and Trash_Audio had in the summer of 2010. Coming up is Harvestman performance at Synth Meet 8.

Xart and Trash_Audio hosted Charles Cohen and Tyler (together known as Color is Luxury) from Philadelphia for a day of guided improvisation workshops and conversation. Their style of improvised electronics has been garnishing attention internationally, particularly Cohen’s mastery of the Buchla Music Easel. Here is their performance from June 19th in Chicago.

Surachai – To No Avail (Out Now)

I’m proud to announce that To No Avail is out now. You can download and pay-what-you-want at Handshake’s Bandcamp page. I recommend downloading the FLAC version and listening in it’s full merciless glory and of course grabbing it on vinyl when January comes around.

I’d like to point out that the intended format of this release is vinyl and was contemplating releasing it as only that. So I’ll make sure TO NO AVAIL gets released in accordance of the high quality standards Plague Diagram went through. It’ll be a on 180 gram vinyl and a beautiful gatefold showcasing Sarah Sitkin’s artwork in its full beauty.

Pre-orders for vinyl are available! The first 100 copies will be on white vinyl and will include either a copy of Plague Diagram or a refined logo shirt. Thanks for the ongoing support! Winter is Coming…

POLYFUSE Live, TWO different sets this Saturday (Chicago) (Update!)

This Saturday (July 30th) in Chicago I’ll oddly be playing two shows in a row. Surachai is joining for both. The first is at the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival and will be us doing some dark-ambient (but not TOO ambient) music. The second is at the AHHH!!! Music Festival and we’ll be doing the full out Industrial / Punk / Dark-Acid set with lights and modulars. Two very different experiences, come to both! Tons of amazing artists are playing at both of these events.

The guys putting together the AHHH!!! Music Festival currently have a kickstarter page going to help raise funds for their event. There’s some nice bonuses for donating, please check out the site for details. They are ALMOST at their goal, but time is running out, help if you can!

(The kickstarter funding was cancelled due to a small change in the festival, due to an issue with having part of the festival outdoors, everything is now moving indoors, the festival is still going on, full details here.)
