Electric Temple Japan Benefit Project

Electric Temple have released a very finely curated benefit for the recovery of Japan after its recent devastating natural disaster.
Titled "Gaman : A Ceremony for Japan", it features some fantastic sound artists and musicians including Animal Hospital, Steven R. Smith, Derek Rogers, Loren Conners, Reuben Son, The North Sea, and Chicago locals Zelienople, among many other wonderful artists. All proceeds go to Shelterbox, who provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families across the world affected by disasters.

Apparently National Audio Company donated all 200 tapes for this benefit. What fine folks they are.
There is also a digital version available for all those of you who are visiting our blog and don't own cassette players.

Electric Temple's original post is here.
Please consider supporting this benefit, and benefits for the welfare of the earth in general.

Travis Bird, "Two Tidal States"

Travis Bird has released a tape on Digitalis Industries. It is entitled "Two Tidal States". These pieces were recorded at Elmwood in the Autumn of 2010, utilising his Korg MS2000R, analogue delay and tube reverb.

The tape is available via Digitalis Limited Editions, us, and probably a ton of distributors.

Sound samples are available here :
