released July 16, 2017

I had been pondering what to do with my Soundcloud tracks when the following news came out on July 6, 2017.

"The situation at SoundCloud is quickly deteriorating, with bankruptcy potentially next. Company CEO Alex Ljung has just announced the layoff of 173 employees. Offices in San Francisco and London will be shutting down immediately. Amidst a bevy of possible buyouts, SoundCloud’s financial system is heading towards implosion. Effective immediately, all operations will be shifting to Berlin and New York."

I thought to create a snapshot of my 14 most recent tracks on Soundcloud before it was too late. These tracks range from 10 days to 3 years old. Some have been released before but most have not.

My use of Soundcloud has been to post works in progress or short examples of my current sonic investigations solo and with others. These are more for my own use than to release as finished products for consumption. Few people have heard them anyway. This compilation is a snapshot in time, nothing else.
