The Knot: a video, a compilation appearance, release show (some details!).

My cello duo project, the Knot, with Tilman Lewis is gearing up to do our launch show for our debut recording, a split cassette (yes it has a download code!) with Montréal’s Aaron Lumley on Arachnidiscs.   The show is set to happen on the 26th of September, at a TBA venue.  We’ll be sharing the night with Arachnidiscs head-guy Jakob Rehlinger’s Babel, as well as two very special out-of-towners, Drainolith (formerly of AIDS Wolf) and Wolf Eyes member, Nate Young Regression.  More details will follow.

In the meantime we have some goodies to share with you.   Here’s a little promo video Jakob made for the split release featuring our music and that of Lumley.

Here’s another little preview, courtesy of the Arachnidiscs Soundcloud:

In addition to this Knot release, we’ve also just contributed a new track to the most recent Classwar Karaoke Survey compilation (Number 19).  Classwar Karaoke is housed at the Free Music Archive.  This survey features a long list of tracks but includes the likes of Evan Parker, Peter Brötzmann, Rhys Chatham, Leif Elgren, and Bob Ostertag.  We’re very excited to be included!

Here’s the page for the full compilation.

And here’s a direct download link for our track, Basalt.
