Bisect: 20th Anniversary Reissue

It dawned on me recently that it had been 20 years this November since the release of my first Gruntsplatter release. The "Bisect: A Split Release" was the first release on my label Crionic Mind. A split cassette limited to 100 between myself and Torture Chamber. Torture Chamber was an early experimental project of Jonathan … Continue reading Bisect: 20th Anniversary Reissue

Dragging The Rivers Of Sleep – New Release

I mentioned here a very long time ago that Fall of Nature Records had approached me about putting together a rare and unreleased collection. I took an absurd amount of time pulling things together, but I'm happy to say it's nearly done. Even better,¬† the label was still interested in releasing it. I'm really pleased … Continue reading Dragging The Rivers Of Sleep – New Release

Coming Storm

I stumbled across this the other day on YouTube, and hadn't see before. It's a short film reflecting on Dust Bowl and where we may be headed again. I didn't know about it or have anything to do with it, but filmmaker Kate MacDonald used Gruntsplatter and Umbra in the score. It's definitely worth spending … Continue reading Coming Storm

There is new music in the works. My wife and I have been working on a project that goes beyond the scope of what most people know me for, that continues, and is gaining traction. This is something which falls closer to what you may expect. It is a collaboration with someone I haven't worked … Continue reading Strange Noises From The Lab

Patching The Holes

With resuscitated, there is a bit of spackling I should do. Blogging is odd to me. I like the idea of it, the potential I see in it. At the same time, I don't have any grand need to lead a public life. I do get questions about what I've been up to, what's … Continue reading Patching The Holes

Unreleased Improvisations

Digging through a stack of old DAT tapes, I recovered 3-4 hours of "live in the studio" recordings no one has ever heard. The tracks were all recorded in one take direct to DAT between 2000 and 2003. Most of them were rehearsals to get myself sorted for whatever show was pending. I doubt I've … Continue reading Unreleased Improvisations
