- I hope to finish my design work for the forthcoming BLOODYMINDED LP/CD within a week and then I'll hand it off to Megan Emish. - For those of you in the NYC area, our very (rare) own Pieter Schoolwerth is in Bubble Revision, the second iteration of a 3-person exhibition, now at Miguel Abreu Gallery in NYC, with Alex Carver and Avery Singer. The Berlin show (Call Out Tools) was a beautiful mindbender and this will be nothing less. Please check it out if you're in the city.
- We're looking forward to recording demos of our seven newer songs with Matt Russell on Monday. I've been snapping practice space shots - pretty much every week - and I've been enjoying capturing images of the rusty scrap metal in Isidro's kit, some of which is new, and which he's brought in, and some of which dates back to when Blake Edwards built the first kit in Animal Law, before we founded Anatomy of Habit.
- Intrinsic Action was an industrial/power-electronics band, founded by Mark Solotroff in 1984, and dissolved in 1995 when BLOODYMINDED began. Facebook iTunes Spotify Bandcamp
- We're getting started on a new release - slated for spring 2019 - for our good friend Sergio Sanchez in Mexico City and his excellent label, Ruido Horrible. Sergio has previously released a solo cassette by Isidro (El Arca De No Es - Alborada Gris), and Isidro contributed to the Los Heraldos Negros CD, Ya De Aquí Tú Te Vas, in 2013. Sergio released the fantastic Los Heraldos Negros "Vivir Mejor" CD on BloodLust! in 2010 and he has booked both BLOODYMINDED (2007) and Mark Solotroff (2011) shows in Mexico City.
Mark Solotroff - I wrapped up mixing and editing "Symmetrical Spaces of Communication" and I'll send the master off to the cassette plant next week. If you're interested in a sneak peek, you can listen to the recording via a private Bandcamp stream now:
- David, Jonathan and I are continuing working on the first new Nightmares music in over ten years. We've all been sharing tracks and I'm really excited by our progress, thus far. - We're continuing to document our progress and post images on FB and IG. I posted a bunch of my photos last time, so here are new photos from Jonathan (top two) and David:
- Nightmares is the synth trio of Jonathan Canady (Angel of Decay, Dead World, Deathpile, etc.), David Reed (Envenomist, Imvixor, Luasa Raelon, etc.) and Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit, BLOODYMINDED, The Fortieth Day, Intrinsic Action, etc.)
