The Septic Blank

Holy Cats!!! I finally completed the RPM challenge.

This album is a 13 “song” collection of my found-sound recordings, drums, guitar and tape loops with effects applied to them.

I consider this to be a WIP for an album I’m releasing later this year – which I’ll write about soon.

I’ve set out to complete the RPM challenge several years running, but this is the first time I actually finished it.

UPDATE

I spent a couple of hours trying to upload my songs to the RPM site, to make it feel even MORE official. You can’t just link out to Soundcloud or Bandcamp. They’ve made it just unfriendly enough that I finally gave up. I can’t seem to delete my account either, but I removed all the information that was up there.

I dig the idea of making a full record in February, but I cannot recommend that site until someone fixes it. What a great idea, though!

I made this.

Insomnia Haiku #10

Consciousness talking,
To itself inside matter,
We are all waking.

Insomnia Haiku #9

Snoring all the while,
My dog shows me how to sleep,
She thinks I am nuts!

Get it? Nuts??? A diorama in a walnut shell that I found in the alley behind my house while walking the aforementioned dog.

Insomnia Haiku #8

When I cannot sleep,
I pretend that I am on
A Trip to the Moon.

Inspired by Georges Méliès.
