i am a creature of multiple dimensions
maybe it is why i have trouble reconciling myself in your world
for the first time i feel as though i understand the disconnection
my flaw is not my distance from your perception
but my lack of empathy
i am not different from you
you are different from me
do you see it?
that’s a mean question
you are happy in your two dimensions
i am curious in my many
this damn cold.
of all the times i should get a cold.
my body feels drained and hurts from coughing.
as if my sleep patterns weren’t disturbed enough.
in the midst of changes in my life.
in the midst of recording something to fix broken impressions.
in the midst of writing my first solo live show in some time.
i pause recordings to spit out phlegm.
(im sorry, i know it’s gross, but if you are going to read about my reality you get it all)
it is hard to focus on the notes i’ve charted.
a path through my own space and time.
i sway between my own emotions and those of others.
trying to create to reveal to relate my own statement.
glitches and heavenly choirs.
times that don’t fit.
things i must fix.
resolutions to find.
maybe i push myself harder than i have to.
but sometimes, i don’t feel as though i have a choice.
i have to make something.
oh black francis, where is my mind!?
i suspect the cold medicine has kicked in. i just talked to my plant, gary.
and he talked back.
‘3 minute inventions – 011’ was recorded using a roland go mixer, and is a blend of make noise 0-coast, arturia minibrute, akai rhythmwolf and roland sh32, sequenced using a korg ea 1, and modulated boss effect units.
stay tuned and warped.
where does scalesofangels come from?
a lot of places. eno was probably my first exposure to ambient music, and i later discovered cage, subotnick and cuccurullo.
but somewhere in there, a friend hipped me to the ambient ping, and after my first, maybe fifteen years ago, i was hooked.
toronto’s experimental music scene would probably not be as prolific were it not for the work that jamie and scott have put into making sure that the ping was there for people who needed it.
props where props are due.
where is their key to the city?
just announced, scalesofangels will be performing at october 20th’s edition of audio bleed at the belljar cafe in toronto.
audio bleed is a monthly event, a curated night of ambient, drone, experimental, industrial and rhythmic noise exploring the vast possibilities of electronic music.
‘3 minute inventions – 010’ was recorded using a roland go mixer, and is a blend of bastl kastl, yamaha dx27, roland gaia, sh32 and jv 1080, sequenced using a korg ea 1, and modulated via korg and boss effect units.
stay tuned and warped.
drone:klub:12 was most excellent.
walking around today, i feel as though my equilibrium has shifted.
i quite like the sensation.
