Rob Falgiano's new CD, Thing I Used to Know is now available. I play bass on half the tracks and guitar and keyboards on several others. This double disc features an all-star cast of musicians and is, as artvoice called, it "daring and delicately understated."

In April, Michael Bentley, Dean Santomieri, and I played the Ambient Ping in Toronto (this was the final date of our Monsters of Ambient tour that took the northeast by storm). Michael joined me at the end of his set for an improvised duet. You can download a clip of it here: toronto_1.mp3.


Sobriety, the first full-length release from Original Skin is released. I played keyboards on four of the tracks.

The latest issue of Grooves magazine (issue #9) features a label spotlight on The Foundry, which includes a review of Trillium.

The reviews of Trillium keep rolling in -- and they're all good! Check out issue #19 of Outburn, as well as this review at windandwire.com, and this review at ambientrance.org. More reviews can be found here.

Jonathan gets mentioned in Keyboard Magazine!!! The August, 2002 issue of Keyboard Magazine features a review of the 360° compilation by Jim Aikin. My track gets a full sentence! Read the review here.

Trillium has been released!!! Trillium is my first full release for The Foundry/Hypnos. The pieces on this album, all experiments with the 3/4 time signature, bring together different sound sources and styles into a unique and compelling collection of drifting ambience. You can find out more about Trillium (and buy it, of course) at the Hypnos Store. You can download excerpts from Trillium (as well as a full-length non-album bonus track) here.

Jeffry Braun's debut CD, Slow Healer has been released. Slow Healer features ten original songs of love and loss. I play bass on nine tracks, and Mike Daly (formerly of Whiskeytown) plays on two tracks. Find out more about Jeff and order the CD at www.jeffrybraun.com.

My track "Viscous Space" can be found on 360°, the latest Foundry/Hypnos title. This compilation has as its center point a story fragment, a series of episodes taking the listener through an enigmatic arc, an arc becoming a circle, an arc of 360°. Tracks draw on a variety of electronic music flavours, from ambient electronica to microsound and glitch. Contributors to 360° are, in order of appearance: Rhomb (releases on The Foundry and Archipelago imprint), eM (releases on The Foundry, Archipelago and Fallt), Jonathan Hughes (formerly Subspace with release on Sunburst Fifty), High Skies (Mat Jarvis, formerly Gas on Emit), Mark Van Hoen with Seofon (Mark Van Hoen has released work as Locust and under his own name on Touch and Apollo; Seofon is a member of Ambient Temple of Imagination as well as a solo artist), Sketch (releases on Apollo and on End of Hum), Thermal (releases on his own Boxman label and Archipelago imprint), and Kim Cascone (releases on Ritornell and Digital Narcis among many others). Quite a range of talented artists all contributing tracks recorded specially for this compilation!

Audio samples of every track are available on the 360° page, so take a listen! 360° is now available for purchase from Hypnos, The Foundry, and Soleilmoon.
