As many in the Edmonton art and sound community have known, I have been working on a “NEW” WIND ROSE sound release for over and year and half.

THE SOUND The sound and music was recorded shortly after the passing of my Father and is is a reflection of the early phase of my grieving process. I imagined 4 phases of his spirit passing over to the other side… each track is an emotional journey revealed as meditative/pulsed sound. I didn’t hold anything back in the creation of these tracks and they are true to the mandate of my WIND ROSE project which explores layered and pulsed sound and noise using repetition and micro tweaking/layering techniques of only analog oscillators. The instrument used is a wonderfully broken vintage Minimoog and a 70′s analog delay box.

THE ART I have been a massive admirer of the artwork of SEAN CAULFIELD for many years. I approached him about collaborating on this release and responding to the sound work with one of his amazingly detailed drawings. He offered to do an original Mezzotint with the only stipulation that it would take a long time to create. I didn’t care in the least about the time as I knew the wait would be worth it completely. The art was completed recently and printed by New Leaf in Vancouver in an edition of 100.

We have spent months lovingly hand creating the rest of the packaging and I am thrilled with the end product which will be released by the Edmonton Label Amusements Banales at this show on May 4th, 2014.

THE CONCERT The show will be presented in the incredible art space of dc3 Art Projects, with a immersive sound space delivered via a fantastic 8.1 Surround PA System. After securing the space and sound system, it only made sense to SHARE all of this with some of my favorite local sound artists. The artists I have selected to play each bring an incredible amount of talent and passion to their work, and will have up to 20 minutes to take us into unique and wonderful (some intense) sound spaces!

I really hope to see you there.
