What’s been happening?

Posted in Mini-Album, Mink15, on the web, Spookydirt on December 23, 2011 by Andy

What’s been happening? Not a lot, lately.

Since the burst of activity in the summer (where they covered a couple of Gavin Clark songs), Mink15 have been working on an acoustic EP, for which they have finished four songs already. There is also a nice new Mink15 home page, if you haven’t seen it.

Spookydirt also had a productive year, and is now taking a break. Check out his collection of probability-based ambient music at spookydirt’s bandcamp page.


’68’ is here!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 18, 2011 by Andy

The latest spookydirt album is here: ’68’ is over 50 minutes of minimalist ambient drones and floaty noises. ‘one’ is over 25 minutes long. ‘two’ is probability-based generated music. ‘three’ has synths fed through a Vox AC30 guitar amplifier.

This album is probably best listened to at low volume levels, let the sounds creep into the room and into your mind, rather that blast it out. (Plus, it gets louder and I wouldn’t want you to blow up your speakers).

released 15 May 2011

It is named for the BPM of the track.

Something new on the way…

Coming very soon, a new album from spookydirt.  It has 3 tracks, and is over 50 minutes long. So, some quite long tracks there.

Expect a release sometime this week.

It is available as a download or an actual CD (cd-r, ‘handmade’ sleeve and so on…) for a very reasonable price 🙂

Spookydirt on CD Baby

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on November 15, 2010 by Andy

I’m now releasing some music through CD baby, starting with HaiddFlux Rope and Eta Carinae. Downloads can still be found on Emusic, Amazon, iTunes, etc

There probably won’t be any new Spookydirt ambient for a while, as I am busy (again) working on the Mink15 album.

Eta Carinae

By the time you read this Eta Carinae should be live on many download stores including Emusic, Amazon and CDbaby.

Eagle-eyed persons will have noticed that the artwork has changed. Slightly.
