postthispostthat an astral salons cd box set would be nice but in these limited runs i doubt ill ever get my hands on one! as for the track, if anyone finds this disagreeable you've most likely had a personality bypass, - but dont worry, there's always the television!

about

Another year, another series, another branch in the long path of exploring my creative continents. 2021 brings us to ASTRAL SALONS, a nine-section series of monthly EP installments that land somewhere between STATIC PHARMING and SILHOUETTES, bridging the corporeal and the cosmic in concise twenty-minute jaunts that are designed to groove and meander in equal measure, and hopefully do not overstay their welcome. The digital 4x12" FERINE ALEMBIX could be seen as a precursor for this series, as those sessions put me back in the mood to produce an EP series again, and further, ASTRAL SALONS are not just informed by their more "modest" runtimes, but also a very fresh and unique approach to modulation, stereo panning and sonic depth-of-field that I've played with in the past, but haven't yet focused so completely upon until now.

Paired with these sessions are nine Polaroids shot using expired film, on the day of the August 21st, 2017 total solar eclipse. I felt that these images were appropriate analogs for the concept of the series, being surrealist and psychedelic multi-layered pieces with deliberately lossy artifacting, overexposed processing and overlaps of FX processes in motion that leave "holes" in the sound field. The photographs are presented as they were developed, with only some contrasting and digital cleanup work done in post, again mirroring my studio process for the ASTRAL SALONS sessions.

**A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR 09/21: Extemporal Phase is the ninth of nine planned EPs in the Astral Salons series. While this EP is indeed the final of the PHASE designated catalog entries, three more adjacent/supplemental recordings are planned to fill out the remainder of the calendar year. These pieces will diverge from the Astral Salons blueprint slightly, and as such, are being given the designation of "Tributaries," and can be expected to explore certain details and aspects of Astral Salons sessions in greater focus.
