Aeriae _ Electronic Music by Wade Clarke

2020 marks fifteen years of me producing as Aeriae. I plan to celebrate this by releasing a few things... before the end of 2020 I hope, but forgive me if they end up late during these times of COVID. THE THINGS ARE

1. Release Abraxas, an EP of old/unreleased/rare tracks from around the time of Hold R1

2. Cut a new, amusing video of an old remix

3. Release a better version of the June 2012 live set (it was previously on Bandcamp but a bit of a mess. If you previously bought that version, you'll get a coupon for free download of the new version when it comes)

I have new tracks in the pipeline, but there'll be no new album 'til I've finished this computer game I'm working on, and that's going to take a long time. So I hope these 15-years goodies can help hold the fort.

I'm as excited about making new Aeriae stuff as always. Time-wise, I've got a day job, family life and an injury. The time that's left is divided amongst multiple creative projects.

If you haven't listened to my latest release, the 2017 live set DE (see link below) check it out. It's wild. Or take the time to check out my back catalogue on
Bandcamp. I'm proud of all I've released over the years, even if I'd have liked to have released more. I particularly like some of my remixes for bands and artists you may never have heard of, or who aren't even going any more. You don't need to know the originals.
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.

Peril Triage (2017 EP)

Reviews: Cyclic DefrostIgloo Magazine

To accompany the Peril Triage 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)
