Good news. Got a job. Moving this weekend from San Diego to SLC.
San Diego is a perfectly good city, but it’s time for me to move on. And SLC was absolutely at the top of my list of cities where I’d like to relocate, so I think it’s all gonna work out.
I haven’t done too many recordings lately, and I certainly don’t think moving to SLC will provide me any more opportunities for live recording than San Diego. If you wanna play the word association game and I say ‘city with an amazing underground experimental aggressive electronic music scene’, neither San Diego nor Salt Lake City will be on the tips of anybody’s tongues.
The best thing about living in San Diego in this regard was that it was (more or less) just a stone’s throw from LA, where the noisy electronic music scene is markedly more active. And now that I’ll be in SLC, that option is now off the table.
So, I know this is the most unfortunate announcement, but it looks like I won’t be pumping out recordings like I used to. I’ll definitely still make an effort, but that’s just the reality of the situation.
But I will of course keep my eyes and ears open, and will always appreciate it whenever anybody contacts me here or via my FB about shows that might interest me. If it’s a big enough deal, I wouldn’t mind driving the 6 hours to Vegas to record a show. I’m always open to recording non-electronic music as well.
Also, and not so incidentally, if any of you who are reading this are in SLC, please drop me a line and say hi. Or if you have friends there who would be hip to it, please, by all means. Or if you have any tips as to whom I should introduce myself, please let me know. I still want to be involved with the underground electronic music scene, no matter where I’m living.
