mash hits vol 1 is out!

Hi Folks!

My first collection of experimental mashups (not including 2010's duo album "duopoly") is out today on Spectropol.

Most of these were created for ImprovFriday and altogether the album features over 25 IF members.

Some of you have probably heard many of these tracks but they've all been remastered and in one case (doorbler feat. Layton/Thorn) significantly revised.


here's the DL site (name-your-price):…

Limestone Gates @ Spectropol

IF member Steve Moshier's new "reissue" of lovely ambient electronic tracks from theater pieces of the 80s and 90s is out now on my netlabel.

Some of you may have heard a few of these analog electronic post-minimal tracks before; they're so simple yet they floored me the first time I heard them.

I hope folks have a chance to check it out, and if possible spread the word to support Steve and the label.…

I did actually and enjoyed it. Though it appears I got "side-tracked" and forgot to leave a comment. Sorry about that. Aargh.

Thanks, Bruce! Glad to be here. I've wanted to contribute something for a while, but haven't had the time to do it until now. I'm just as glad I waited - having a dedicated site for this, with lots of bandwidth, is a great idea.

I saw that invite for the chapel event. I'm not sure if I'm working nights or days next week. If days, I might just be able to catch it.
