stacked heavy logo

Friends, I am thrilled today to announce my new imprint, Butcha Sound Records, starting with two solo albums totaling 5 hours of ambient, abstract, and noise tracks. They will release on January 1st, 2020. The bandcamp page is up now for previewing and preordering. These albums will be available Digitally, 2xCD each, and photographic prints of the paintings on the covers by my friend and collaborator, Greg MacAvoy. I would be grateful for your support, but more importantly my intent is that these albums inspire you and manifest PEACE in your world.

A portion of proceeds from these albums and everything on Butcha Sound will go to arts education causes.

‘Meditations for Peace’ consists of 2.5 hours of ambient pieces intended to manifest peace in your life and the world around you. Tape experiments, keyboard improvisations, and forgotten studio dream-moments comprise the collection. I came up with the idea for this collection after getting home from the memorial held for David Mancuso on February 14th, 2017. I thought about his message, the therapeutic power of music, and bringing people together through sound and environment. I realized the importance of making and playing music with intent, and I was incredibly moved by what I experienced that night and at The Loft the few times that I’ve been. These songs serve as a focal point for your meditation practice or drifting off into the greater subconscious.

‘Pieces For Painting’ – Speaking to my painter friends over the years helped me to realize this project. These are pieces I imagine would be interesting to have on in your art studio while you work. This includes 2.5 hours of equipment abuse and misuse, late-night journeys into the abyss, and the audio component of several art installations. They are a bit more atonal, weird, and dissonant than the companion album, Meditations For Peace. Zone out to it, create to it, imagine a twisted sci-fi movie in your head – it’s all good.

Special thanks to my visual artist collaborators and friends including Greg MacAvoy, Noah Post, Naoko Komori, Kardash Onnig, Aaron Gerhard Chiesa, WashMachine, Danny McCabe, Bonehawk, Jon Legere, Dan DeGloria, Joe Ferry, Scooter LaForge, Cernesto, Sek3, Spider, Paul Raffaele, Barbie Bertisch, Maria Chavez, The Josh Craig, and the Lost Souls of Saturn installation & creative team: Seth Troxler, Aaron Koolik, Marc Ippon de Ronda, Caroline Lefrere, Andrew Lochhead, Tom Hingston, Andrew Melchior, Mike Cridland, and Ed Cartwright.

Livicated to my students for keeping me young and inspired.
