‘Conversations With Myself’ is now available for digital download via the usual spots.
Conversations With Myself was commissioned by The San Francisco Museum Of Modern Art for ‘Living Room‘, an all day event on June 4th 2011. The five movements were played on loop throughout the day in the SFMOMA’s Schwab Room. A small edition of 300 CD’s were produced and given away free at the event, and it’s currently available for digital download. The digital release contains the same music as the CD, with only slight changes made to the fading in & out of each track and with new artwork.
ECO Festival in Madrid will have a Type Showcase on Sunday March the 18th as part of their four days of programing. I will be performing along with Svarte Greiner, Rene Hell, Xela & Nicholas Bullen. More info here.
From the label:
Jefre’s guitar beams directly down from Souvlaki Space Station and arrives gorgeously mangled via modular synthesizer. Romantically haloed chorus guitar floats widescreen across relentless static drum machines until the sky splits open in the final movement, spilling burning guitar fragments over everything. This same pink-out bliss was explored on his ‘Love Is A Stream’ LP on Type Records, only here it’s simultaneously more unapologetically pop and more aggressive. The B-side, ‘Blut Mond’ is a bass-heavy covert floater – night sky music. Fittingly enough the closing statement of the first round of our Alone Together series is the one that wants to draw you close and to fall gently asleep with you. Sound is bliss. Jefre Cantu-Ledesma is of course a member of Tarental and The Alps, a regular collaborator with experimental film maker Paul Clipson and founder of the esteemed Root Strata label. Edition of 300, mastered by Pete Swanson.
GROUPER W/ JEFRE CANTU-LEDESMA
Circular Veil is the fourth in an ongoing ambient tape collages series by Grouper /Liz Harris. Accompanied by myself, this is a new durational performance which sees Harris create a customised sonic/visual environment designed to lull participants into a sort of waking sleep – a collective dreaming room in which audience and performers may experience this paradox collectively.
‘Visiting This World’ is a new 12″ LP for the Berlin based EN/Of label which specializes in an ongoing series of musician / visual artist collaboration LP’s. My contribution is in collaboration with Dutch artist Daan Van Golden. The edition is released in conjunction with a current retrospective of EN/Of editions at the De Hallen Museum in Haarlem, The Netherlands, which is also currently exhibiting a retrospective of the work of Van Golden. I will give a free performance in the gallery on thursday 23 February, which will also be the official release date of the LP, which is in an edition of 100.
