The Joyful Shrieks of the Cherubim!

“I heard the joyful shrieks of the cherubim singing and shouting ‘Hosannah,’ and the thundering shout of rapture from the seraphim, which made heaven and all creation shake.” -Ivan Karamazov (The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky)

I hope you’re all enjoying this lovely fall, wherever you are.  Cherubim, the project I began last year with guitarist Yuko Pepe has just released our debut recording, “The Joyful Shrieks of the Cherubim!” on the Zeromoon label for intelligent noise music.  Cherubim is a completely improvised amalgam of drones, pulses, melodies and noise, and is unlike anything I’ve done before; in large part due to Yuko’s beautifully unorthodox playing and partly due to the playing and developing I’ve done with my Max/MSP software instrument over the past few years.  One of my favorite tracks is “Tincture”, a dark, noisy rabbit hole of an improvisation; each time I get into the middle of it I wonder where I am and how I got there. We’re offering it with the option to “name your price,” so please listen to it and own it for whatever you can afford.
