Ron Athey and Sean Griffin’s Gifts of the Spirit: Prophecy, Automatism and Discernment was reviewed in ArtForum.
I’m glad to have been a small, bass-playing part of it.
My next album, Orbit, will be released in March 2018 by the label IIKKI. Each of IIKKI’s releases pairs musical artists with visual artists and my work will be paired with the photographer Renato D’Agostin.
Here’s a preview of the opening track, featuring Rachel Beetz‘s incredible flute playing.
The music is available as an LP and the art as a fine art book, intended to be enjoyed both together and separately. For the turntableless people out there, the music will also be available as a download (or if you just prefer bits over grooves).
