You Want it Bleak?
“Days of Joy Unending” the new album from Zeke Mason is here. It’s 14 tracks of pure joy and happiness for your edification. May it lift your spirits so they soar like birds in the heavens.
This follows on the heels of the short EP “A Short Soft Deep Breath” but there is no overlap (a couple of the songs on ASSDB are actually quite old, while DOJU is all shiny and new).
As always, download it here for free.
Hugs and kisses and all the rest!

A further exploration of the audio portrait concept begun with Suche. Europa Recordings is an audio photo-album capturing a trip through England and Germany September – October 2002.
“Suche” to locate
The installation consisted of slides projected onto a white wall (nature scenes) with sounds in the background. The sounds were 15 second audio captures of various locations (urban
environments with lots of machine sounds and various other noise)
“The new ZM album was really an exercise in expressing the sort of ambivalence and and detachment that I feel towards/about my creative work and creative work in general at the moment – hence, music that is very abstract (no words, no engaged themes, just sound). The idea was to make music that was just a total abstraction, just sounds, rhythms, melodies, etc. where one cannot make a connection to any sort of higher meaning whatsoever.”

01 whatever you may think
02 and whatever you may say
03 is all the same
04 to me today
05 and whatever you can imagine
06 and whatever you can dream
07 is all for naught
08 or so it seems
09 and every time
10 you think of me
11 remember these words
12 i said to thee
13 it doesn’t matter
14 i couldn’t care
15 less than now
16 here or there
17 so said the rabbit
18 to the hare
19 as they dined on meats and ale
And here is some album art for those who want to burn a cd of this fine new album.
