Here’s “A Listener’s Guide to centrozoon” that artist Whitney Leary compiled.
It’s made up from tour photos and excerpts of the round table discussion that Bernhard Wöstheinrich, Erik Emil Eskildsen, Lee Fletcher and I recorded for DEGEM’s web radio this summer. The background music is “Field 2” from our Lovefield album.
You can listen to or download the full one hour discussion here.
I’m neck deep in projects and work, so while I don’t have much time to blog I’m happy to be able to at least point to a couple of new things to listen to and watch.

new centrozoon videos
Whitney Leary, the visual artist who has already produced two videos for centrozoon’s Boner MF (Mauls of Reclining and The Yeah Winces) and two for Fire (watch and read Whitney’s statement about them in this blog post), has released another two for Boner AB.

Markus Reuter interview
Mark Ashby of ProgTopia podcast has interviewed my friend and collaborator Markus Reuter. The interview touches on centrozoon’s way of approaching music among many other of Markus’ activities. Very recommended listening.
Older Than God
Markus’ many activities are also the subject of Lee Fletcher’s documentary feature film “Older Than God”, which is being released in monthly episodes. The first two are now up at www.olderthangod.com.
Further reading and listening
If all of this is not enough, I’ve updated the Press page of my website with a few recently arrived reviews and articles. Also still fresh: this radio chat with Bernhard Wöstheinrich, Erik Emil Eskildsen, Lee Fletcher and me.
Logan, Utah based visual artist Whitney Leary has created these two beautiful new videos for some of centrozoon’s “Fire” live recordings: Fire 4 and Fire 8. I’ve asked Whitney for a brief statement about creating these videos, and this is what he sent me:
“These video’s were shot using a Canon Powershot SD1400 IS (a fairly cheap camera), in video mode of course. The only manipulation of the footage is time stretching, any artifacts are strait from capturing. The music centrozoon does is very electronic, some might question why I would put electronic music with nature video. Well nature and technology bode high intelligence any way you look at it in my opinion, I see the smartest things (technology and us) we have to take into the wilderness, and the world the Divine left us as being highly spiritual bed fellows. Complementary intelligents. Both very inspiring to take in as well as to use to create, art. Try taking your copy of centrozoon music on your headphones, and walk in the park, in the woods, and take a camera. Try and see what the music and the moment inspire you to find, capture it, I bet you will love the experience as much as I do. centrozoon moves.”
