In the music world:
I performed my eight-hour nocturnal field recording/sound art opus, SHORTWAVEMUSIC «ALL NIGHT FLIGHT», at the Radio Revolten Festival in Halle, Germany, on 2 October 2016 from 8p-6a. Listen to it in its entirety via this exclusive private link, and read an interview with the festival’s official blog. I also performed a two-hour in-studio set of ShortWaveMusic classic tracks on 5 October.
Work continues apace on Science Park’s next album, Mercator. Follow the demos playlist on Soundcloud. I’m also assembling the live configuration of the band, currently hiring three female vocalists. Contact me via the About page.
In the radio/audio world:
My long-gestating documentary on NYC’s The Ordinaires is now available in its full, unedited (non-broadcast) version: Nine Views of the Ordinaires. Also, read my interview with the official blog of Bar/None Records, the Ordinaires’ old label.
I’m working with reporter Ruxandra Guidi on her ongoing KCRW series Going Gray in L.A., which follows Broadway through the heart of some of the city’s most diverse working class neighborhoods to explore what it looks like, what it sounds like, and what it feels like to be growing old in L.A. today.
Also in September, I engineered this interview with Jessica Bennett (Feminist Fight Club) for Girlboss Radio.
In October, I worked with reporter Karen Foshay on her two-part series for KCRW, Troubled Waters: Low Wages on the High Seas and The Secret World of Arbitration. Karen and I also collaborated on her piece on the “gig economy” in L.A. for KCRW in November.
I’m currently producing an upcoming episode about Paul Bowles’s field recordings in Morocco for The Organist, which will likely premiere in January 2017.
