Torrey And Thomas Park- Torrey Reads Thomas [treetrunk 397]

Thomas Park’s wife was kind enough to provide a spirited reading of one of his original poems. The music in the background is by mystified. Special thanks to Torrey for her time and creative spirit.

The Future Of Treetrunk Records

TreetrunkRecordsBase

Thanks to many generous contributors, creatively and financially, Treetrunk Records will be able to have its own domain and ad-free website until at least the end of next year, perhaps further. To me, this is significant.

In terms of submissions, the netlabel plans to close, after its 400th release, for an indefinite period. It is Thomas’ contention that the substantial discography of the netlabel should itself be explored, or revisited (if it already has been explored).

That┬ábeing said, Thomas plans to maintain Treetrunk’s website and general web presence, helping to ensure its legacy.

He also will be offering some nice features for the 400th release, including a high-definition downloadable version of the Treetrunk Records documentary and 5 original prints based on a logo design.

Thomas Park- Generative MIDI [treetrunk 392]

This release contains a number of MIDI files authored by Thomas Park. These files were generated fractally. Many were further composed using a program called “Anvil Studio”. Of note especially are the “OS” pieces, as they came to comprise “Our Skies Radio”. Our Skies Radio was a featured radio station at Live365.com and was referenced in an article in Spin Magazine (November 2000). The pieces on the station were created using variable star data as seeds– this data having been collected from the website of the AAVSO Observatory. Some of the other MIDI files were assembled to create longer form pieces, such as the essential Treetrunk work, “Music For Infants” (2005 Treetrunk Records).

Looking Back– Some Holiday Audio

For lovers of dark audio, here is an alternative Christmas mix I made back in 2011:

2011 would not be complete without an alternative Christmas mix from Treetrunk. So here, without further ado, is a half-an-hour of dark atmospherics and twisted toy-like dreams. Enjoy!
