The Abraxas EP (link to its page on Bandcamp) is out! This release celebrates my fifteen year anniversary of Aeriae in 2020. It's named for the first Aeriae track I produced back in 2005. Spanning 2005-2008, these tracks have a dark, sepulchral feel that mostly precedes the style of my first album Hold R1. Opener Abraxas and the original long edit of Hold R1 (I used just the tail of it on the album) have never been released before. Reign and Quiz are tracks that took part in the endless music contest on garagebandDOTcom, back when that great site existed (no relation to Apple's Garageband software which now has that URL!). The final track Sophie Asks Why was broadcast on Sydney's FBi Radio in 2008.
DE – 28-MINUTE 2017 LIVE RELEASE
This 140BPM+ release is comped from several live takes of my 2017 Melbourne set. It's the same mix I play into a big room, thus sounds awesome in a big room. It's been described as "mind-melting" and "(G-RATED STAND-IN FOR AN EXPLETIVE) amazing" by early adopters.

- Reviews in Cyclic Defrost and Igloo Magazine
To accompany the EP, I'm making a series of videos called Aeriae - Live As Can Be.
(27-04-2017) In the long-awaited episode 2A I perform the track Skirr from my first album. Then I describe the construction of the live version of the track in detail, building on what I told you about my controllerism setup in Episode 1. (Watch the video on YouTube if you want to be able to click on time links to jump to different parts of the video)
In episode 2B (which was shot at the same time as 2A but post-produced before it) I cover the main theme from Escape From New York on keyboard:
In episode 1 I talk about how I got into playing live via Moldover's awesome controllerism video. I demo Lenticular Cup and other music from the first Aeriae shows back in 2009, including the intro riff from Apple IIGS game The Immortal. Then I describe my setup in detail. For the keyboard outro, I play Spy vs. Spy from the Commodore 64. (Watch the video on YouTube if you want to be able to click on time links to jump to different parts of the video)
