Joe Chawki: Mixolydian for indiegogo... your time to gogo?

Joe Chawki's 2014 Album
Joe Chawki is raising funds for recording and equipment to release his upcoming album.

Campaign Summary
I have been playing guitar for 19 years. In my teens I played in some local groups, played festivals and concerts receiving notable recognition. There are several random tracks I have released through the years, but none that have been produced or presented properly...for the most part I have been on my own as an artist-- seriously lacking adequate funding. I have written quite a bit of material which through this project, will finally be professionally recorded, produced and released to the public. Various circumstances have prevented me from putting this music out sooner, however I really feel now is the time in my life to do so. Please help me make this happen!! Many advanced thanks for your support!

What Is Needed
  • My goal is to raise $4500 through this campaign. As everyone knows, creative projects are expensive and most musicians are not exactly wealthy. The funds will be used as follows:
  • Professional equipment for home-studio recording
  • Studio time for production and mastering
  • Studio time for hired musicians (Bassist, Drummer & Keyboardist)
  • Printing, Packaging and Artwork for final release (Digital & CD)
  • 100% of the donated funds will go toward making the absolute best album possible
Please share this campaign, tell your friends, help to grow my fan-base. Donate creative services or equipment. Refer students near and far ( I offer lessons locally as well as online via Skype)
Send positive vibes :)

'Lion' is an EP I've been working on the past few months. Like all of my previous work, all of the guitars are programmed. I'm a drummer, and I can't actually fluently play guitar. I play and record my own guitar/bass samples using a real guitar/bass, and then I arrange these samples to form riffs.

Erik Wøllo: Timelines - ambient - new album - time to destress

Erik Wøllo: "TIMELINES" (Projekt PRO298)
New full length album, released February 04 2014
Available on CD and digital download:

- iTunes:
- Amazon:
- Bandcamp:

CD (4-panel digpak):

TIMELINES is the 18th solo album from veteran Norwegian ambient/electronic artist Erik Wøllo. It's a warm, epic and shimmering cycle of memorable electronic music. Noted for his many Echoes Radio albums of the month -- and placement on "Best of the Year" lists at Amazon, Zone Music Reporter, Schallwelle Award (Germany), and others -- TIMELINES continues in that tradition with nine engaging pieces exploring the idea of music and time: how elements of past, present and future affect a listener's perceptions.

Layers of acoustic guitar loops and pulsation-patterns create the foundation on which Wøllo's distinct melodic piano themes are played. The pieces bring emotional synth lines and powerful deep basses together with delicate percussion arrangements. As a natural and important counterpoint to the expressive piano themes, Wøllo's electric guitar ebow solos are both intense and haunting.

"I started most of these songs with just an acoustic guitar," Wøllo reflects, "composing and recording them in the same order you hear on the album. I created the arrangements, adding other elements, building and sculpting the compositions in time. I have always been interested in timelines and schemes that show how time can be measured, and how we relate to them. Each of the tracks was conceived as part of a suite exploring the ideas and aspects of time and consonance. And how these elements go together, and how music as an artform is a manipulation of time. But the interesting clue here is of course how we relate to time in our body when we actually hear the music. And how our experiences and memories -- as well as present circumstance -- affect our hearing of the music. When I made this album, I was more aware of these ideas then ever before."

Wøllo's background in 70s prog-rock is noticeably present on this album. Strong rich themes, chords and rhythms all lead towards crescendos and counterpoints within the songs. Well-structured, yet all the while retaining a spacious ambient and cinematic feel, Timelines is a natural continuation of the electronic palette heard on Wøllo's recent albums Gateway (2010) and Airborne (2012), as well as his collaborations with Steve Roach: Stream of Thought (2009) and The Road Eternal (2011).

TIMELINES is an accessible and inviting album: an occasion with which the listener can discover involving music that combines rhythmic grooves and atmospheres with recognizable lyrical passages.

The video shows Erik Wøllo performing live in studio, and we hear excerpts from "Color of Mind", "Pathfinder", "Along the Journey" and "Ocean".

Big thanks to Chris Taylor over at Headstock Distribution for making this happen.

Pete Sklaroff: Late Night Jamming - but do his neighbours mind?... only if they are not invited over!

Just messing about here with a very heavily chorused guitar sound. Not something I use much at all, so really just a sonic experiment and fooling around with a funky backing track by the excellent Vito Astone.

Late Night Jamming

This backing track has been floating around the web for a while and I'll happily credit the composer if they let me know. Sorry about the audio quality and mix here, but I've lost the will have to stick with this version. Hope you like anyway..definitely a bit of Luke influence here...
