My phone phreak-inspired track “Deserted Cities” features on a new CD compilation called “Euphony 2”, put together by the chaps from the Ambience radio show on station WWUH in Hartford, USA.
The disc is an exclusive fundraiser for the station, available only for people contributing to keeping the music on the air, and features tracks from US Space Music stalwarts such as, Steve Roach, Richard Bone and Â Forest Fang as well as myself, appearing under my CodeTripper guise.
I have to admit to initially having no idea where Hartford, CT might be, so it’s rather strange that a little Googling led me to discover that it is indeed a short distance South West of Windsor, the original UK namesake of which being where I currently reside. Only, this Windsor is in close proximity to US versions of Coventry , ManchesterÂ (Lord help us!)Â and Bristol. With a wider view, it’s all North East of New York, but you probably knew that anyway.
You can read all about the fundraiser and CD compilation on the WWUH page. Here’s a sample of my “Deserted cities” track.
The package containing copies of my new “An Opening Of The Earth: Recovered” CD on Faria Records arrived in the post from Russia yesterday.
I’m really pleased with this project, which I think, has resulted in a really satisfying object. The CD itself comes packaged in a heavy card folder with three postcards containing artwork and texts from myself and Michael Northam.
The images on the cover and inside the folder are from Peter Jackman, a print artist whose work I saw exhibited last year. I got in touch with him and he graciously allowed me to use photographs of it on the CD artwork. The particular works we used are “Adam and Â Eve In Eden” on the cover and “Trees” on the inside.
I’ve added a new “Shop” page to codetrip.net, where I’ve got Paypal options for buying the new “Opening” CD and some of the other releases that I have on the shelf at the moment.
