Very often, I forget I have this site. I do something which I should really post about, but I don’t and then nobody knows about it, then I forget about it.
JUMBO :: COMA-03
Last week was Jumbo Records‘ 40th birthday. Jumbo are without a doubt the greatest records store I’ve ever set foot in, so I felt privileged to get asked to help them celebrate. Props to Adam & Matt!
To mark the occasion, Coma Architects made a soundscape recording of the shop on it’s 39th year, 364th day… pressed it to CDr, recruited the amazing designer Sam Little (aka Slitt) to screen print us a bunch of ‘worn record stacks’ covers, and delivered them to the shop on the big day. Really proud of the art/prints on this one. Sam’s done an amazing job of wearing everything to look like gnarled minimalist records. The paint-flecks on everything are some real legit DIY shit!
MASTERS :: RESULTS
Got the initial marks from my masters back yesterday, absolutely blown away. Passed with distinction, so needless to say – I’m currently being a gloating bastard.
CREATIVE_PACT_2011 :: FAIL
Well, the creative pact kind of dropped off didn’t it? Turns out working minimum wage jobs for marathon length shifts kinda saps the creativity out of you… who knew. Still stamina building, I’m going to get back on the coding this week – currently battling for efficient ways of controlling multiple Servo motors via serial communication between Arduino & Processing. #DelimitingFail
FUTURE COMA :: SURPRISE, SURPRISE – MORE ITHACA TRIO
Got a few more Ithaca releases lined up on Coma Architects over the next few months with more art by Slitt. Also hoping to get a release out by a good friend of mine that’s gonna blow socks off.
Also got some Ithaca plans for Tokyo Droning & Hibernate records at some point. And a gig before 2012…
