Bilumsman video

Monday, October 24th, 2011

My brother Eric continues to put out some great videos from his recent killer LP The Friend Is This Animal. Last week the latest video was premiered by Get Off The Coast and it’s a really meditative and ethereal visual treat that compliments the music perfectly. It’s directed by cinematographer and director Jeffrey Palmer. Check it out here and track the whole album down too.

The Lady and The Monk

Friday, October 14th, 2011

“I turned on the tape again and – out of nowhere- heard Van der Post talking about how the moon in Japan was always three times larger than in any other place and how the Japanese had a deep affinity with the moon, renewing themselves, after earthquakes or wars, as cyclically as the moon.
The moon, I recalled, was the one possession that even monks did not renounce. When he lost his house in a fire, the Zen poet Masahide wrote, he found occasion for new hope: he now enjoyed a better view of the rising moon.”
-Pico Iyer, The Lady and The Monk

Tape Op #85 Brian Eno interview

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

Tape Op is by far one of the best magazine for recordists out there. It’s subtitle, “The Creative Music Recording Magazine”, sums up what is different and appealing about it. From the DIY homemade gear articles, to great interviews and gear reviews, there is a certain candid and inclusive perspective that runs through the content. With subscriptions still being free it’s a must for anyone into recording music. The current issue has a really good interview with the renowned Brian Eno. The interview itself is not available online but there is a little article on the images used for the piece. Check it out here and subscribe for goodness sake!
