I am pleased to announce the release of my new song collection, "Constellation Blackbird" on the Weareallghosts netlabel. It's available at bandcamp.com or archive.org, released under a Creative Commons license.
My friend Thomas Mathie did the cool cover art and wrote the liner notes. He describes it as "dissonant frequencies, naive sounds, and glitchy melodies". I think he's got a bit of a point, there. I call it weirdbient, though, and that term works for me.
I have a whole heap of love for the experimental electronic weirdbient music of Robert H Nunnally Jnr aka Gurdonark. It is so different and out there from the rest of weareallghost’s roster.
“Constellation Blackbird” continues the musical journey Gurdonark first started with WAAG back in late 2012 with “Open Spaces”. This isn’t easy listening: it has dissonant frequencies, naive sounds and glitchy melodies that may not be instantly accessible. However I, for one, enjoy his particular style of minimalist expressionism … I look on it aural ginger that cleanses the palate from a meal of ambient sushi.
It is relatively easy to call your music experimental, it is a whole other thing to live, like Nunnally, an experimental life. For me, “Constellation Blackbird” is an outpouring of such a life lived on the edges; one immersed in the open, sharing Creative Commons culture.
I welcome this recording and am delighted to welcome Nunnally back to weareallghosts. I hope you enjoy “Constellation Blackbird” as much as I do.
