I consider it an honour and a privilege to call Gurdonark a friend. He has wonderfully alternative view on life that i find inspiring. He’s not a hippie or anything ... he just isn't consumed with consumer things ... he is all about open source, community, creative commons and sharing ... in fact, it is what he gives ... what he brings to the table ... that inspires me more. He is a wise sage in a post-modern world ... a photomystic who chases ’feel’ rather than mega-pixels ... someone who equally at home in the outdoors spotting birds or in his ’space’ creating lullabies in the key of now.
I am so proud to present “Open Spaces (waag_rel009)” ... a short collection of said lullabies. Music that is deliciously quirky but undeniably catchy ... music that packs so much in 23 minutes but still retains an air of elegant minimalism.
Unfortunately my two daughters are now in double figures ... so I can’t test the release’s lullaby quotient on them ... but it works for me so I can only surmise that it would have worked for them too: somatic soundscapes for busy days.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
An mp3 version is available for free on Archive ... with a lossless version available for ’pay what you want’ over at Bandcamp. Gurdonark has kindly agreed to help fund waag’s SoundCloud account ... so any profits from monies raised will go straight there.

I am proud to announce that Monday, 19th November will see the release of "Open Spaces" by weirdbient artist and dear friend, Gurdonark.
I was delighted when Gurdonark offered to release some of his music via my wee netlabel and was not disappointed when he sent through the tracks that make up "Open Spaces". These are lullabies in the key of now... and I find them fascinating.
I hope you will too.
"Open Spaces" will be released on Monday - MP3 for free on Archive and Lossless for 'Pay What You Want' on Bandcamp.

If I was asked to describe in 1 word the 6 tracks on Cousin Silas' 4th release for weareallghosts I would call it 'ambientelectromelodica'. Not that I need to create a new genre of music just to describe this EP ... far from it ... the music presented in waag_008 fits nicely into the ambient realm with an electroacoustic twist and a real focus on melody.
I've had these tracks for a wee while now and wanted to see out 2012 with something special from Cousin Silas. The thing is … I simply couldn't wait any longer. I love all the music he has entrusted me to release on this wee netlabel and I will be forever in his debt … afterall it was with his encouragement that I started down this road and it is with his support (and the support of the other artists on here and our many loyal listeners) that I keep as enthused as I was back in April 2012.
"Endless Summer" is an EP of its time … a recollection of the best days of the best summers … not necessarily this summer … but one where we have benefitted from being away and do not want to return home. I can connect with this thought.
The EP contains a track entitled "For Julie" … this track is dedicated to Julie Marie Fregeac aka Madame Papillion whose videos on YouTube have be greatly appreciated by Cousin Silas … who speaks very highly of them … and he wanted to give her something in return.
The EP also features artwork from Ade Hodges and my thanks goes to him for his generosity in allowing us to use his image.
An MP3 version of this album is available over at Archive for free (archive.org/details/waag_rel008) ... and a Lossless version is available over at Bandcamp for 'pay what you want' ... I have embedded a Bandcamp player below to let you hear it.
Cousin Silas has kindly agreed that all profits raised from this EP will go directly to weareallghosts to enable the purchase of a Soundcloud account for the label. My sincere thanks go to him for his generosity!
