    Remix I did for comrade p.WRECKS, from his forthcoming split album with Pro-Green. It's an awesome album. My own split project with p.WRECKS as POWER HUNGRY LIARS will follow later this year.

    So...late last week I decided that I wanted to once again attempt to make some music. Previous attempts were never successful and resulted in ragequitting the brand new free program I downloaded in a combination of "I don't understand how to do this" and "I can't get the sound I want". Someone suggested Reaper to me and I fully expected to be going down the similar path, but...well, I started actually making something.

    A big part of this is thanks to Warren Ellis and the folks on here when I asked to be introduced to the world of ambient music. My iPod was crammed full of wonderful stuff and I've been a steady listener since. Of note, Taphead coming to visit Toronto left an impression on me, but so many people here have been wonderful in making and providing some amazing music that got me thinking and feeling. So uh, thank you.

    Anyways. More and more I started to screw around and then started making my own field recordings. Regardless of anything, I'm really enjoying this, as I'm finding the experimental/field recording/ambient genre...thing, to be a good method of translation from my thoughts and emotions to auditory stimuli. It's got me thinking like an Ent, in a sense. So much to say, but I'm able to take my time to say it and in my own way. I also like that I can expose myself so intimately in the music, in some cases even putting elements in that if a specific person heard they would get the subject matter. And if I do it right, someone can get what I'm feeling without knowing the details.

    Anyways. Here's what I made so far.

    In With Me - First track. None of it my own loops and was experimenting with just what I could do with this program, but the sounds have more or less been in my head a while.
    D Towards K - Field recordings of a walk I went on over the weekend down Dundas West towards Keele.
    Thoughts & Memories - Another walk, but this one doing some decompressing and thinking about a few of the crap things from the past, present and future.

    Putting these all together (as well as one secret track that I thought a bit TOO personal to release), I'm starting to notice a common theme. The songs are up on Soundcloud, but I don't see the harm in putting up say, a free bandcamp download when I have several more track under my belt.

    Hope you like it.

    These are really fantastic Robin - there's a real sense of depth. Really look forward to downloading the Bandcamp package when it comes.

    My favorite was D Towards K; I'd happily listen to a Bandcamp EP/LP - Keep going!!!

    This is my first effort

    Compilation of rarities, unreleased tracks and remixes for other bands, including White Triangles, Fiona Soe Paing, Fist Place Science Project, p.WRECKS and a Glass Candy bootleg. Free / pay-what-you-want. It's hip-hop, Jim, but not as we know it. I have a new EP out 20 August, my first fully self-produced vocal work - hope you'll join me for the launch in a few weeks.

    TEXTURE - LOST TRANSMISSIONS

    TEXTURE - LOST TRANSMISSIONS (Stream / Download)

    Would appreciate any signal boost you can offer. Thanks as always, Whitechapel, for support and inspiration.

    INCVBATE // TEXTURE

    My latest EP, first for some time of all-new material. I know this thread's pretty quiet, but hopefully some of you will enjoy this. I'd appreciate any signal boost you can help me out with. The EP features 3 original tracks, a cover version, 4 remixes (one by Mild Maynyrd, aka Dan Black, your fellow 'Chappeller), and an extra bonus track. Available on limited edition CDR or as a pay-what-you-want digital release. Expect hip-hop, dark electronics, cut-ups, occult themes and field recordings.
