forget the physical

the wonderful folks at residual stacks are putting out my first record, forget on cassette! i'm really stoked to finally have physical copies of this jam. ordering info and everything will be posted soon.

in other news:

-the newest record is totally close to completion. i have a couple more songs to finalize, and then plans will be made to share it with all of you. i think this may be the best thing i've worked on thus far.

-my live setup has changed significantly with the addition of a sampler, a synth, and this amazing piece of gear:

it fucking rules. i'm spending a lot of time re-learning arrangements and songs i couldn't play before, so the curtains live show will become a completely new beast.

-rachel and i are performing a piece entitled "gardening" next weekend as part of the asheville fringe festival. it's an audio/visual combination that is meant to explore the relationship between the organic and the technological. our performances will be jan. 20 and 21st at the black mountain college museum in downtown asheville. if you're in the area, please stop in and zone out!

also, here's a video

a film student at western kentucky university emailed me saying that she'd heard my first record, forget, and was immediately inspired by the song "lawnmower in the garden." she made this video and sent it to me. it's pretty rad.

i present to you the first curtains music video.

for those who don't know, this particular song is a cover of a song written by my brother and his band,

the nein.

as per usual, it sounds best on headphones or a bigger system, not laptop speakers.
