"Double Album" in development

Things have been quieter than usual on this site for a while, which means pretty darn quiet. That's because I'm working on what could best be described as a double album. I say 'best be described as' because – what is a double album now? For a good chunk of time that meant two CDs' worth of material, and before that, two LPs' worth of material. I don't know if this next release of mine will appear on any plastic or vinyl discs, but I suppose I'm still aiming at what would fit on two CDs.

Peril Triage in Igloo Magazine's Best Of 2017

Thanks very much to Igloo Magazine who listed Peril Triage as being amongst the best electronic EP releases in 2017. They encourage you to share and explore their lists, and, obviously, I do too!

DE: New live release is out

DE IS HERE! This 28 minute release is comped from several live takes of my recent Melbourne set. It's the same mix I play into a big room, thus sounds awesome in a big room.

DE is starting life as Bandcamp-only, pay-what-you-want, and you can get anything from 24-bit FLAC to mp3. If you do stream it, don't only stream it, listen to the lossless version sometime with all the frequencies and transients.

Aeriae plays Melbourne Fringe, Friday 15 September 2017

I'm playing at Clan Analogue's Digital Envelope event on Friday 15 September 2017 at Bar 303 in Northcote, Melbourne. I'm putting together a new high pace set. And if the venue allows, I'll be playing in darkness.

Tickets are $12 online now. You should also be able to buy at the door on the night.

SPIEL:

Clan Analogue celebrates 25 years of independent Australian electronic music-making with a two-night festival at Bar 303. Friday night’s ‘Digital Envelope’ explores the multi-faceted digital realm of electronic music while Saturday night’s ’Analogue Coordinates’ sees some of Melbourne’s idiosyncratic analogue technology performers in a spontaneous one-off collaboration.

Digital Envelope explores the digital realm of electronic music with multiple artists presenting their unique sonic manipulations of ones and zeroes. With live performances by Aeriae, Random Acts of Elevator Music, iubar project and a retrospective DJ set by KOSHOWKO.

Experience iPad virtuosity, live coding, bit-crushed sonics and the bleeps of obsolete soundcards.
