Video for “What Month Is It?

In March of 2021, I spent two days at Mono Lake. On my first afternoon there, lenticular clouds were forming to the east, over the Nevada line, spinning, moving, then evaporating. I shot this video as dusk descended, and sped it up 5x. I topped the video with a track from 1988 entitled “What Month Is It?”

You can buy the song from Bandcamp — and today, April 2, Bandcamp is waiving its portion of sales, meaning artists make more money from their music.

New track: “Se Pivoti”

This is a new 19-minute track accompanied by a video I shot in December 2019.

There’s a shorter version of the track that’s currently a pay-what-you-want item on Bandcamp. Price will be raised to US$1 on or shortly after January 1, 2021.

Here’s hoping for a vastly improved 2021.

Thanks for listening.

Another Mono Retreat

View from the patio of my temporary Mono Lake abode (from December 2019).

In early December, I spent a week at my favorite place, Mono Lake.

The weather, for 7700 feet high-desert elevation at the eastern foot of the Sierra, in early December, was disturbingly mild. I was hoping for cloudy days and some snow, but there was none of the latter and little of the former. I did a lot of reading, writing, taking photos and videos, offroading in my truck, some volunteer work, and relaxing (somewhat).

I also spent some time working with the Korg wavestate, tweaking programs, recording, and tracking and processing some existing stuff.
