Seasons Beatings



Every Christmas, for the past 10 years I've somehow managed to get the place all to myself, it's nice but after a few days it gets weird, this year everyone in my building is gone for the week, I just walked down the street an hour ago and it looks like everyone on the block has left. Anyways, with that in mind there is a new release(well 2 actually...see below for the other one) titled "Blast of Silence", it's a 3 cd-r set of electronic audio that mostly teeters on the brink of inaudibility. The title obviously comes from my favorite x-mas hating noir movie, not sure what i can say about the audio but only one other person has heard it and he had this to say about disc 1 - "at first i thought my tinnitus was acting strange then i realized it was the cd". Maybe not the most ringing endorsement but he had this to say about disc 2 "it was nice, even pretty when i could hear it". No comment on disc 3.


The second mega release is a compilation of Computer music spanning the past 15 years(i think). What is computer music? I don't know, and I don't care except that most of these tracks were either purely computer generated audio(CGA) or something like 80% computer. All I know is I needed a computer to do it, or a laptop whatever you want to call it. Computer music released on the reviled cdr format? Sounds perfect to me, and there's 3 of them to boot!

Blast of Silence is an edition of 19 copies
I have a computer is an edition of 29 copies
Each release is 20 dollars post paid in the US, 22 overseas
Both together 38 ppd in the US, 42 overseas

Unlike the Electronic Harassment tape which I guess is being very slowly manufactured at the plant, these 2 releases are here and will ship out starting on the 27th or 28th.
