Faulty Machine Recordings Service: October 2020

VOR 02:56


FAULTY MACHINE RECORDINGS SERVICE is my experimental recording and distribution service.

After years of only allowing myself to produce music within the studio ecosystem – a prohibitively expensive luxury that prevented me from releasing new albums for nearly 20 years – I’m returning to my indie/lo-fi roots. FAULTY MACHINE is the solution: a monthly sonic sandbox that serves as a platform for all my musical musings.

A new edition of FAULTY MACHINE will appear at the end of every month here on my Bandcamp page. I’ll deliver a digital care package of whatever I’ve been working on that month: pop song demos, house music diversions, abstract soundscapes, field recordings, etc. Anyone can download this “standard” edition free-of-charge.

For an additional paid subscription of $5/month, patrons will get the entire back-catalogue of my project, SCIENCE PARK, plus my 30th-birthday retrospective and other special, subscriber-only releases to be announced, including some fascinating curios from the archives.

This is the eighth FMRS release, featuring two tracks produced during October 2020, plus two from the FMRS Archives.

The first is a remix/reinterpretation of Joni Mitchell's classic, "Sweet Bird," presented here as "Woke Up Vanishing." The second is a brief instrumental titled "VOR." From the archives, two original compositions for the SHORTWAVEMUSIC «ALL NIGHT FLIGHT» . "Moscow Mailbag" was created for the Chicago, IL ANF (October 2019). "Barstow BNSF" was created for the Halle, Germany, ANF (October 2016).
