New images of upcoming music-related items

I have received a couple of new really cool images in the last couple of days.  First, is the cover to our new re-release of Bahian Coastal Hwy by Multicast.  This is on Carpe Sonum records and should be mastered in a week or two.  Then it goes to the pressing plant; hopefully we’ll see it by October?

I also will be receiving a poster of this amazing artwork for the upcoming 2015 Full Moon Festival by M.E.S.S.  The poster will be framed and on the wall for sure. This is going to be a great party and I’m looking forward to both our release and the party.

Live in My Basement Series – Depeche Mode

Got to listening to my stash of early Depeche Mode and ran across several Live Concert vinyls, cassettes and CDs.  After spinning my own personal concert, I figured that some enthusiasts of early Depeche Mode would also like to listen, so I thought I’d share.

All tracks are from concerts most dating 1980 – 1982.  Note that the quality is greatly mixed — some are audience recordings, some soundboards and a couple of tv or radio broadcasts.  I love hearing early and different versions of these wonderful tracks and how the band evolved before I could witness first-hand many years later!

Enjoy, leave feedback and connect if likeminded!  I will have another basement concert or two forthcoming for DM from the mid-80s; plus some other bands that I’ve been following and collecting for the last 30+ years!  Stay tuned…

Multicast presents aural espianage… "The Spy"

This track was from a live set. The originating track was part of the aural “wall of noise” tracks called Rotation ][ where we lit up the sound system and chilled everyone with a wall of sound. However, one show we took it in a completely different direction…which is the beauty of incorporating impromptu playing with hardware at live gigs.

 

Hope you have your counter-surveillance equipment rockin’… Enjoy!

 

Multicast’s Museum in the Dark – 10/24/9

Multicast was able to provide soundtrack music for the “Museum in the Dark” opening at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.  This was a fabulous showing of great paleontology and geology, especially with the “spooky” atmospheric music ala Multicast with Charles Balas.

You can listen to the show in 192K MP3 format.  Download a printable CD cover.
