My deepest condolences to the friends and family of Cash Askew and to all of the victims of the tragic fire in Oakland. Cash was one half of Them Are Us Too, my label-mates on Dais Records. Their album "Remain” is one of the most beautiful records I have ever heard. She will not be forgotten.
My 3rd box set entitled "Nature Laughs As Time Slips By" is now available from Dais Records. For more details, please download the press release by clicking here. There is also a nice article and some sound samples here. The oil studies for the art edition, entitled "Portraits From The Violet-Blue House", can be viewed here: Group 1 / Group 2 / Group 3. I've updated these images with 11 additional oil studies I painted in November. The art edition is now sold out. My video for the track "Garden Path" from the album "The Violet-Blue House" can be viewed below:
Dais has also manufactured an enamel pin of my diamond Moon/Tree logo (limited to 100), as well as a limited edition T-shirt featuring my standard "flowing branches" Moon/Tree logo. I will not be selling these items directly, so if you are interested in obtaining them, please click here and here.
In other news, I have contributed an exclusive track to an on-line compilation benefitting Ania Mehring who has recently been diagnosed with Sarcoma Synoviale. Ania is the wife of Maciej Mehring, founder of the Zoharum label based in Poland. My track is an out-take from the "Rain Studies" sessions and is entitled "A Room By The Sea". Please visit the Bandcamp page here.
The Sol Invictus album "Death Of The West" has been reissued on vinyl for the first time. Four of my drawings from 1992-94 are featured inside the gatefold LP jacket, three of which are previously unpublished. The LP is available for purchase here. The 20th Anniversary Book Edition of "In The Rain" is also still available and includes 18 previously unpublished pieces of art I created for the album between 1993-95. There is a short presentation video here.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy Holiday. I'm praying for a kinder 2017.
