I'm pleased to announce the release of a 5 track EP, Codicil, on Toronto's Adhesive Sounds label. Cassettes (and digital) will be available July 15th.
Recorded at roughly the same time as Relative Position of Figures, using the same minimal modular synth + tape delay setup, I consider the two cassettes to be companion pieces.
Listen to the final track from Codicil below:
Relative Position of Figures reviewed in AdHoc's "Who Has Tapes Anymore?" feature:
Fousek...opts for a slow drip. Using a modular rig and tape delay he pings nervous spurts like a leaky faucet spitting frail glops of sound onto the porcelain. The tracks are brief and nervous, all just a few minutes at most, but deliver pleasurable vintage music box vibes.
The album was also recently featured on Episode #47 of the Tabs Out cassette podcast. Download at tabsout.com
My set from the May 25th edition of Noïsundaéè at La Plante/The Plant in Montreal. It comes complete with ambience from the community kitchen preparing delicious Mexican food.
I'm happy to announce the release of my official debut album:
Relative Position of Figures
Composed using a focused setup of only a portable modular synthesizer and a tape delay, the album extends the ideas found on my self-released Cassette Miniatures, Vol. 1 into two sides of rhythmic and melodic experiments.
It will be available in May on cassette and digital via Phinery Tapes.
Artwork thanks to the incredible Daniel Everette.
Announcing a short, self-released collection of synthesizer material:
Cassette Miniatures Vol.1
Selected ephemera for modular synthesizer and tape delay. Recorded directly to cassette tape. Monophonic.
Hopefully, there will be physical cassette release as well as a second volume within the year.
Here is a sort excerpt of a performance in Vancouver earlier this month. Hopefully, there will more performances in 2014.
I also have some new projects to announce soon. Watch this space.
