luck enough to be on a track on :00= "Children of Cimmeria" (unifactor) by Kouns and Weaver (feat= Havadine Stone, Ilyse Krivel, Fire-Toolz, Zack Kouns, Rick Weaver, Morgan Garrett, me/ Caleb Miller, Jeremy Harris, Nadejda)
** "The Four Immeasurables" (VMR021)= OUT RIGHT HERE!
The first release from THE Zack Kouns and myself....! It's a collection of tracks based on our relationship to presence practices/ meditation. It was a real treat to rip this one with Zack... absolutely deepened by relationship to my own practices/ Zack himself.
"This is Alanis Morisette's New Album"= OUT MEOW!
Freshest release from Zack Kouns / Rick Weaver that I was lucky enough to be on/ master! It's a wild ride that (mostly) has to do with a real-life scenario involing the 90's star-child of that same name.
"A Spittle Filled Blather" by Sun Trash (VMR019)= OUT NOW!
Latest release from the long-time friendship/ process duo of myself and Nick Weckman (Worms Rise Up, Zack Kouns). It's mostly a bunch of songs on de-tuned instruments I wrote at the drumset... We think of it as a record of "depature" truly for the sake of it. It came together during the peak of the pandemic. Nick made the wild art/ play a bunch of clarinet/ brought in a Black Sabbath cover ("Children of the Grave") while I recorded it and played bass/ drums/synths. VERY happy with it's fruits! Out on tape and digital!
"I Was Wrong About Most Things To Do With Other People" by Caleb Miller's Here Here (VMR016)
This is the first release under my "intentionally rotating" project Here Here (different musicians/ people every time). "I Was Wrong" is an 8tet work I about all that is the title. It features the following cast of amazing Columbus musicians:

I and all/ most of these projects (including VMR) exist in the "social" realms as well but I despise their current business models and prefer any other form of contact (humane tech= yes yes= www.humanetech.com)
