As alway, I appreciate your support. Any money raised through album sales will 100% get rolled back into making music and the Electronic Curiosity Collective. Feel free to share this page far and wide!
I’ve been a little quiet on music releases since the Black Zinda album. This album will be my last release of the year. Going forward I’ll be gearing up for the famous Jamuary event on Instagram. Check out the site, if you haven’t been here before. You can sort articles by music, info, gear demos, and more. If you’re looking for the last article I wrote about inexpensive music gear to get for Christmas, check it out below.
Every month on Instagram, the Electronic Curiosity Collective runs a musical challenge that is open to the public. On top of at least one guaranteed prize each contest, we also offer spots to the top five finishers on our curated Spotify playlist. Aside from the fun and prizes we also aim to develop an atmosphere of friendly, supportive competition and offer ways for other musicians to network and make connections.
For the month of November we have introduced the Noisevember Challenge. This challenge pushes entrants to find a way to create a piece of music that creatively mixes noise into the jam. While the definition of noise can be quite subjective we encourage participants to use as much or as little noise as they want but to remember that each entry will be judged on creativity, musicality, and utilization of noise!
The rules are:
One entry per person
Use the hashtag #ECC_Noisevember
Deadline to upload your entry is November 27th at 8pm Eastern.
Winner will be picked on IG Live on November 27 at 9pm Eastern
Top 5 will be chosen. 2nd place through 5th place will receive 2 spots each on the Electronic Curiosity Collective Spotify Playlist. The winner will receive 5 spots on the Spotify playlist plus a $25 Amazon gift card!
Everyone is free to join, so come find us on Instagram, browse the hashtag and get creating!
A few months ago I collaborated with an amazing musician on Instagram by the name of Stephen Zinda. Stephen is a multi-instrumentalist, genre-hopping mastermind. He is one of the first people that I connected with on Instagram. He’s released 3 excellent albums on Spotify (Brains, King Pig, and Meat Freak.) I started chatting with Stephen early on and what really captured me about his music was his guitar playing and songwriting. He’s got that booming voice that really captures you’re attention.
Eventually, we collaborated on one song called Palm Trees. Here’s the link to the original version of Spotify. This song is included on our full release but it has been re-worked and is way more badass and epic in it’s final form.
The goal for us originally was to create an EP. I ended up sending about 30 tracks to Stephen in my signature style, all full versions of jams in the 3 – 5 minute range. I did this over the course of a few weeks. Stephen was able to take the tracks and manipulate and flip them in ways I never imagined could be done. In the end we ended up with 9 tracks and released them on CD and Cassette on October 1st. Now at the end of the month we will be releasing our album digitally on all streaming platforms on October 31! We can’t wait for more people to hear what we have created.
Big shoutout to everyone who supported us by purchasing a CD or Cassette! You’ve helped fund the Black Zinda movement and we are currently entertaining an offer of perhaps releasing on vinyl. Anybody interested?
