2/19/17 – Precurs

before i officially [as i see it now] launched my solo career, i did a noise-and-spoken-word project during much of 2009 and released it on vulpiano records feb 19, 2010. one track has always stuck out for me from that project, a duet with Carahanni, “precurs” . i decided to resurrect and do a solo only version of this weird little track in honor of the project turning 7, as well as “remixing” the original photos i took for the artwork of lichen mimicking a circuit board. and happy to say after all this years i can still call vulpiano home.

8/1/16 – Split with Samsara Portal Holistik

dear listeners
I am happy to announce a small release on an Indonesian label
Tandem Tapes approached me to work on a split release with one of their artists
‪I thought it would be a good opportunity to shine light on the star player of Drono, “Wash”‬.

the word ‪’drono’ is Malagasy for wash
so “Wash” is the centerpiece and quasi-title-track to the record‬
‪the version I did for tandem is a bamboo mix‬

lately I am preoccupied with making beats and textures out of bamboo recordings
‪I am really happy to be able to tell this different story of the piece and push it from techno-drone territory into fullon rhythmic hypnosis…‬with some hidden gamelan
hope you enjoy:
