Birth, School, Work, Death...

It's getting tedious saying "holy shit I'm working a lot sorry for not posting blah blah" but you all know that, so I won't bother reiterating the point. On Tuesday next, me and the missus leave on a much-needed vacation to Hawaii for a week, and then Adam and I are off to Portland for the TRASH_AUDIO synth meet / Muff Wiggler store grand opening, where we will (as it turns out) definitely unveil the next Audio Damage Eurorack product. This bad boy is not an effect, nor is it based upon any existing Audio Damage product.

(Nor will it be entirely done by the time we get to PDX; we'll be showing a prototype.)

Some non-Audio-Damage news, in no particular order:

1. My new album is nearly completed. It's actually been nearly completed for a while now; I have two tracks left to mix, but due to the sudden influx of Work Related Time Suck, they've been in that state for some weeks now. I hope to have it finished by this time next month. It is a full album, unlike my last few releases, and I'm pretty proud of it. IDM, of course, but emphasis on the D instead of the I, for a change. (Read: four can be found on the floor for the most part.) It is, to not put too fine a point on it, full of techno.

2. Our good friends Standard Beat Co. have a new sample set out, continuing their Dark Downtempo series with the fifth installment, which you can and should purchase here.

3. I guess it's just those two things for now.

In any event, this is an open thread, and since a lot of projects tend to come out this time of year, if you'd like to take this opportunity to do some self-promotion or talk about what you're up to, that'd be totally cool.

I'm not going to be wearing a name tag at the Trash Audio event, but I will be wearing a buttless Batman suit.

Or, as it's known in the Pacific Northwest, "Saturday."

Is there a version of Batman that wears a Utili-Kilt and rides around on a unicycle playing the Imperial March on flaming bagpipes? If so, that one.

Hey, so I'm in a three piece goo band here in Montreal called Handsome Pixels. We're giving our music away for free, so in the event you are curious as to what goo music sounds like, please feel free to check it out here: link [handsomepixels.mp.co...]

Thanks for listening!

I listened and am still unsure what goo sounds like. What are its distinguishing characteristics?

@boobs: I think my costume variant dates from the George Clooney era:
