Engaging the Muse

Engaging the muse
An apocryphal sound ritual by Wormsign

To celebrate 30 years of my recorded musical journey this year, I will be composing and recording a new original piece of music each day for 30 days and releasing it on social media and soundcloud.

The full tracks will be available on my soundcloud for download.

Had fun with this one. Inspired by the theme from the show Knightrider and my love of 80’s synthpop, these tracks came suddenly on the heels of my return from a stint in the Big Apple. The pulse of the city beats under the surface of these tracks. I close my eyes and feel myself on the 2 train.

Here it is, finally. SolarFlower is a return to form on the 20th anniversary of VIRUS, I decided to go back to the dance floor and create tracks in the spirit of what we were after back then. It has been a fun ride creating this one. Dedicated to that very special woman in my life, keep on moving baby, you make my whole world smile.

Virus Oddities available for download

At long last I have uploaded the Oddities Volume 1 & 2 to the virus section. These were self released limited editions sold on the festival circuit back in 2001. Now here they are for all to enjoy, two discs of demo’s and out-takes from our years as virus. From the earliest 4-track recordings to our Myx records days with Scotty, these two discs are everything that wasn’t released. Well that is listenable.

When I was a kid I remember vividly, then, Walter Carlos’ monumental classic “Switched-on bach”.  Which began my life long obsession over the synthesizer.  With the spirit of that in mind my path was clear. This one is for Wendy Carlos…  Your awesome.

The Wormsign Primer is a collection of my favorite tracks, demos, and out-takes from the archive.  The last four tracks are from the forth coming album “Big 80s ego trippin” due out this fall.  For now dig your teeth into 28 tracks taken from the original masters and encoded at 320 to keep it clean.  If your new to wormsign, this is a good place to start.
