The Unknown Rockstar - first album release (and new covers online)
The Unknown Rockstar has producted a first album, sound board, an album of beautiful, relatively sparse instrumental playing, on acoustic and electric guitar and on clarinet. The instrumental methods and modes developed through the Tangent Precipitate era are bought to a more focused conception of improvisation and sound under the guise of this new persona.
i've had the privilege to design and host the website for a CD compilation that has recently been released in Wellington, New Zealand - salad bones. it's a CD of spoken word with music. five poets have collaborated with five musicians, entrusting the musicians with open artistic license. the result is quite varied, a small slice into some scenes that are going on in this city. i've not come across anything quite like it.
salad bones bought to you by dr shopper & pickles in association w/ the word collective
Stolen Art Galleries taken offline
Due to the privacy invasion side of the stolen art galleries, I have decided to take them down.

The crew at Press the Button have created a new piece, "A Rick Jensen Reverie" entirely from samples of the Rick Jensen Trio.
