Keweenaw Vortex

I started this on Friday and finally finished it today. At the start of the weekend I wanted to make a piece to soothe me because I was easily stressed but at the end it sort of turned into an interesting collage of some of the same sounds repeated. One thing I really like about it is that you can't really hear the bass over the layering but you can feel it.

The title comes from this rock shop I pass almost everyday with a painted picture on the outside of 2 people, rather witch like, stiring something in what appears to be a volcano. With the words "Keweenaw Vortex" at the bottom. Or the top, I don't really remember. I don't have a picture right now but I'll be sure to put one up on here.

First Post

Hello. As a first post, I figured it would be easier and more natural to go with the vibe I always have and always encouraged. Which is to just do it. I've essentially just desided to give away a Spiid release and a few mp3s I've listen to today.

The Ex-Sanguinator, Spiid, Split EP

This is the most recent Spiid release. It's done with fellow Hooker Vision artist, The Ex-Sanguinator aka Ben. I strongly suggest listening to his music. It's a complex of garage-like visual material that I couldn't even begin to describe.

Hooker Vision

Hooker Vision is run by Grant of Nova Scotian Arms. Grant is probably one of the most influential and if not the most influential musicians I have ever heard. You can find his blog on his Myspace page as well.
