Andrew Duke April 2005 news

Andrew Duke news (April 2005)
<>
scoring/sound design news:
<>--2 of the 4 Anti-Racism PSAs I scored (titled "Leave Out Violence" and "Stereotypes")
have won awards in the annual national Racism: Stop It! competition and are airing
nationally for the next 6 months on TV in Canada: CBC, CTV, Much Music, and Much
More Music (they can be viewed on
http://www.pch.gc.ca/march-21-mars/hands-mains/10videos_e.cfm)
--scored Stefan Bauer's Ohrmong (he's from Germany; will be released on DVD on
Austria's Chmafu)
--scored, sound designed, and produced Sierra Club ad
--Tim McDonough's Passing Through People (I did some sound design; he's from Saint
John) played March 30 in New York; http://www.anthologyfilmarchives.org
http://www.newfilmmakers.com/calendar/050330.html <>

album news:
--reviews are starting to come in for my Dead Air Alive album out now on Montreal's
Petite Sono; here's one from The Netherland's Vital Weekly that made me smile:
"It's not easy to outline the concept behind this new Andrew Duke CD but

it's part of a bigger work dealing with radio and sound, of which
'Dead Air Alive' is the third part. In radio broadcasting terms,
'dead air' is the sound when there is a lack of broadcast, which Duke
considers an oxymoron, since no broadcast doesn't mean no sound. In
this one hour opus he works exclusively with the sound of no sound on
the air. The input is, hard to believe upon hearing, an hour of
jazz music. The long, stretched out static sound has no resemblance
to jazz, and maybe to some people, nothing to do with music
at all. A very minimal piece of work here, with perhaps
subtle changes, but for the bigger part hoovering at Lopezian
silence. If the name Andrew Duke only rings bells when it comes to
rhythmic, techno-based music, then 'Dead Air Alive' proves otherwise
(but then you may not have heard his 'More Destructive Than
Organized' on Bake Records). Duke is a multi-faceted talent,
proving to do very nice rhythmic stuff but at the same time, he is
also capable of producing a more than excellent piece of microsound,
along the lines of Francisco Lopez or a less musical, but no less
intriguing Stephan Mathieu. Great ambient music here. (Frans de Waard)"
--my Second Opinion album (a total contrast to Dead Air Alive in that Second
Opinion is rhythm-based) is forthcoming on Montreal's Phoniq, just have to
sort out the cover art

<>compilation news:
--tracks forthcoming on Polygon Network's Delauney Triangulation and upcoming
hip hop project for Love Africa <>

remix news:
--remixes completed for Poland's Eta Carinae, Macedonia's Sound 00, and
Vancouver's Souns <>

collaboration news:
--collaborated with vocalist Tena Palmer while in Ottawa in mid-March

Bip-Hop, two others will be released on Montreal's Hushush; Emisor is performing
at this year's Mutek festivals in Mexico and Montreal <>

Andrew... this board is not so SPAM friendly. You'll have to go about letting people know what you're up to a little less directly if you're going to use this as a means to self-promote.

that would be kind of funny - it could be called the spam forum, and would be a museum of ban-a-nation.

We could've found the culprit, but we ran out of money.

Please send more money.

hilarious

i'm not sure who changed the subject on this thread i started, but props to them on the humor of it. re: the hatin' here: i met a lot of people in toronto who enjoyed what i played at labyrinth lounge and spoke to me about it and i thought maybe an update would be appropriate. no one forced anybody to open up and read a thread that says "andrew duke news april 2005", so i'm not sure why some felt compelled to make negative comments. anyway, i won't bother posting my monthly news update in may or in the future if it is going to get people's knickers in a knot. stay positive ;) andrew
