Tom Hall - Floats
Letting you all know that my album 'Floats' is now officially release. It was released in conjunction with my performance at OPEN FRAME. Floats represents months of investigative practice in to processing live sound sources in a dynamic and fluid nature. The idea is to create melodic ephemeral moments that expand on the complexity of the original sound source but don't destroy it's original inherent qualities. All of the pieces for Floats were created using a 1980's Yamaha PSS-140 as the sound source. Floats is strictly limited to 30 copies with the unlikely event of a repeat in the near future. (nearly half have already gone).

4Layers of 9 --- new album --Glass Vogle 2007=---!
4Layers of 9 --just released new album --Glass Vogle 2007=---!
the 3rd full lenght album by 4 layers of 9 combines the usuall shunted beats, noise, junk metal and electronics unco-ness in true trundel clack style. More melodic than past releases, the 7 tracks embody a rhythmic mish mash of unsmooth transitions, noisy interruptions and mistakes with punko ethics. Limited edition with handmade covers etc--get from the half theory shop or contact me on the obligatory my spazz....myspace.com/4layersof9
yay--will be in QLD music shops next week
