Introducing Now&Xen: a podcast about microtonal music

I always wanted to hear a podcast that discusses microtonal music and plays some tunes. Now Stephen Weigel and I have started such a podcast and invite you to listen to the first three episodes of Now&Xen below:

The pilot episode covers some introductory topics and is fairly short. The next episode “1/1” is already recorded and is much longer, going in depth about how to start making microtonal music and what tunings would be good for beginners.

For the third episode we had our first guest, Elaine Walker of ZIA.

Clip from a new tune

It’s been a long while since I uploaded any sounds and I couldn’t resist. This is the ending and fadeout to a tune I’ve been working on.

Just a reminder that I am working on a new album, however slowly…

MK-SUPERDUPER is free download until June 8th

This April I released MK-SUPERDUPER, a new EP of microtonal electronic music. It’s now been made a free download until June 8th cos it’s my birthday week. So if you didn’t get it yet, give it a listen and a download! It’s quite similar to Rhythm and Xen.

If you bought the new EP already then thanks so much for the support. Now is a good chance to tell your friends so they can enjoy it too. I’m working on new music already, like this work in progress.

Happy listening folks.

Sevish interview at Microtonal Diary

Japanese musicians who are studying microtonality (or microtonalists who are studying the Japanese language) should check out a new blog called Microtonal Diary. An interview with me has just been posted there today. (Read the interview here…)

We talked about the influence that video game music had on me, my experience of writing to software developers about supporting microtonal scales, and microtonal music in general.

Microtonal Diary is written by Hidekazu Wakabayashi who discovered the Iceface tuning. I talked about this scale a little in 9 Alternative Tunings NOT for Guitar. You should definitely listen to some of the music on his YouTube channel too.

Stream MK-SUPERDUPER on YouTube

My recent EP, MK-SUPERDUPER, is now fully streamable on YouTube.

If you enjoyed MK-SUPERDUPER, you can buy the download on bandcamp. It now has a bonus track ‘The Sky Are Sick’ included, which is an ambient piece that shares the same chord progression as the title track of the EP.
