Here we are, fully into 2012 and I haven’t even said hello yet, who do I think I am. I’ve spent the past 2 weeks spending time doing not much else but looking at things like this -
but now I’m back and will spend as much time as possible looking at this
A couple pieces of exciting news – my talented, classy, and beautiful friend Valery Gore and I have been awarded a Toronto Arts Council grant to compose some music together, and we both super excited. We plan on holing up in my lab wearing long white coats, goggles, bolo ties, writing on clip boards and making sounds of all sorts. I’ll post clips as we go along.
News number 2 is the equally brilliant Laurie Brown has selected my most recent album as one of the CBC’s the Signal top albums of the year. I’m absolutely flattered to be part of an amazing list that includes artists I love and respect like St. Vincent, Bon Iver, and all the rest on there. Head over to the site for the list in full.
January is already a busy month, finishing up records with Kirsten Scholte and Royal Wood, then heading back out east for some long overdue playing/rehearsing with David Myles and co. This year is off to an amazing start, can’t wait to share it all with you.
