Spectre

First performed live in 2005, this long, hypnotic drone tone poem is now also available on CD-R in a limited edition of 50 signed and numbered copies. Performed entirely on acoustic and electric bass guitars, this is a perfectly spooky soundtrack for nights in deserted houses.

Something of a companion DVD to Cursed, as it contains two of the videos presented in the book.

Thirty of these DVD-Rs were made to accompany initial copies of Cursed, a handful of them are still left.

Bass for Peace

Bass for Peace

Recorded in 2003 as a statement against the Iraq war. Seven tracks assembled from sound loops played mostly on a bass guitar. Very droney. Also included is the exciting 9-minute workout "Earthenstein". This is a new limited edition of 25 signed, numbered copies on CD-R media in papersleeves made from printouts of my "Things I Learned from Watching TV After Midnight" collages. No two sleeves look the same. As with the original edition, all proceeds from this CD-R are donated to UNICEF.

8 tracks, 57 minutes.

The Yelling Piano

The Yelling Piano

Recorded in 1987. A free jazz-inspired blow-out featuring myself (piano, tapes), Charlie Schwamberger (alto sax) and Gerhard Peischl (keyboard, synths) on a pretty lo-fi 4-track recording. The original audio tape is long out of print; this is a new limited edition of 20 signed, numbered copies on CD-R media in hand-made papersleeves. No two sleeves look the same.

5 tracks, 19 minutes.
