New Release: Somewhat Precedented


What if it happens?

What if it happens and you thought it could happen?

What if you thought it could happen and it happens and you are surprised it happened?

What if you are surprised it happened and you thought it could happen and it happens and it happened again?

What if it happened again and you are surprised it happened and you thought it could happen and it happens and you hope it won’t happen?

What if you hope it won’t happen and it happened again and you are surprised it happened and you thought it could happen and it happens and you know why it happened?

What if you know why it happens and you hope it won’t happen and it happens again and you are surprised it happened and you thought it could happen and it happens and you cannot stop it happening?

What if you cannot stop it happening and you hope it won’t happen and it happens again and you are surprised it happened and you thought it could happen and it happens?

What if you cannot stop it happening and it happens again and you are surprised it happened and you thought it could happen and you hope it won’t happen?

What if you cannot stop it happening and you thought it could happen and you are surprised it happened and you hope it won’t happen?

What if you hope it won’t happen and you thought it could happen and you are surprised it happened?

What if you hope it won’t happen because you are surprised it happened?

What if you are surprised it happened because you hope it won’t?

What if you hope it won’t because you are surprised?

What if you are surprised because you hope?

New Release: Spring Cleaning by Tim Carmichael and Vic Dillahay

Tim Carmichael and I have a new album! We decided to celebrate getting vaccinated and things starting to open up with a bit of free improvisation. We hadn’t played together since recording Graphite’s Thoughtful Departure in February of 2020 but we weren’t too rusty and the ideas still flowed. As Tim says in the liner notes “When you listen to this album imagine yourself getting together with a friend over a cup of coffee to catch up and enjoy the stories of your life’s journey. And, ideally, you will enjoy listening to this album with a great friend.”

Check it out at Bandcamp, on CD, or the music service of your choice!

New Release: Other Analogues

2020 has made me nostalgic for simpler times, so I used my ample free time to record an all electric improvisation in the spirit of 2014’s Analogues of Infinity.

Really, this was an excuse to play with the Electro-Harmonix Grand Canyon delay. Each track is an improvisation through one of its different delay modes. No real looping on this, but I did record the looper in the same session. The result of that is on Phantom Canyon.

Also, please remind me to never release an album on election day again.

New Release: Foundry by Vic Dillahay

Foundry

Also Available From: Amazon | Spotify

Today is Tuesday, the traditional day for new Curious Automata albums. It is also the last day of the decade. Given that, I had to release something so here’s Foundry. A solo improvisation on my new Collings Baritone 1 acoustic guitar, it was recorded in a single take at The Foundry in Loveland, Colorado. The track titles are from my dog Charlie’s favorite walks so if you’re in Loveland you can use this as a soundtrack to a jog of a few miles. Thanks for listening.
