“aos rios urbanos” out 10/6

A collection of thoughtful and moving acoustic/electric guitar pieces (with some electroacoustic processing) from Brazil’s George Christian Vilela Pereira, “aos rios urbanos” (to the urban rivers) is a meditative reflection on the flow of life and our desire to form a more whole consciousness.

Available in limited edition CDR and digital download October 6.

Plans for microtonal compilation(s)

The response to the call for micro/xen/JI works was overwhelming. Because I received such a large collection of interesting and quality pieces, and because I’m not in favor of putting out a marathon playlist, Spectropol will be releasing two or possibly three separate compilations a few months apart starting in late October. These may be Possible Worlds Vol. 2-3 (or 4); or I may title them separately.

Stay tuned! [I will contact individual artists.]

Gazing at Gazing

J.C. Combs’ recent Spectropol release quickly became the soundtrack for some great choreography by Susan Haines in Bellingham. More performances later this year will include even more music from Combs. Watch the initial performance below.

Gazing also has been featured on radio programs including Max Shea’s “Martian Gardens” (WMUA 91.1FM Amherst and online) and Don Campau’s “No Pigeonholes” program (KOWS FM Sonoma and online).
