Secret Wilderness is playing a free show on Sunday Aug 20 at Art Sound Language in Chevy Chase DC at 6pm.
The stars aligned on Saturday between torrential downpours Friday and Sunday for two excellent DC shows that me, Sean, and Ahmad got to attend.

Took the ferry from Sunset Park to Wall Street and went up to the Zwirner gallery to check out the Gerhard Richter exhibit.

Secret Wilderness · Information Junkies I used a Korg Volca FM and a Roland SH01A to track this one. The sample is from an interview Neil Postman gave about the internet in the 90’s. This […]
This is a repost from my Ice Station Studio site (mixing and mastering work). I’m really excited to announce the Alcian Blue Collection double cassette box set that is coming soon on Anathemata Editions. This was an idea that Terence and Sean Gray (Fan Death Records/Birth Defects) had a few years back and it took […]
