LATE NIGHT MIX FOR CONCEPTO RADIO

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

The full title of this mix is The Jason Lescalleet Concepto Radio Metal Heart Mix:

I had a great time in Madrid last month, and I’m grateful for the Spanish attention I’ve received from my participation in the 2014 Electrónica en Abril festival (http://www.lacasaencendida.es/es/grupo-eventos/electronica-abril-2014-3183), as well as the great press I received from Concepto Radio (here: http://www.conceptoradio.net/2014/03/18/jason-lescalleet-much-demise and here: http://www.conceptoradio.net/2014/04/02/jason-lescalleet-canciones-acerca-de-nada)

Special thanks to Jose Villalobos for his interest in my music and for inviting me to participate in the Electrónica en Abril festival, and to Fran Martínez and David Torres for their continued interest and their efforts to bring my attention to my work from the Spanish-speaking world.  These three men inspired me to create this mix.  Although it’s something I really enjoy doing, I hadn’t made a mix for a long time.  I loved making it and I hope you enjoy listening to it.  If so, please share it with others!

 

HVALA, LJUBLJANA

This is a long overdue post, but I want to once again thank Luka, Martin, NeJa, Primož, and everyone at the Museum of Transitory Art (http://www.motamuseum.com) for their wonderful hospitality. Sincere thanks also go to Meta Česnik and Žiga Pucelj for their journalistic efforts and their interest in my art.
Below, I embedded a video excerpt from Meta’s interview with me for Radiotelevizija Slovenija. The full piece can be seen here: http://ava.rtvslo.si/predvajaj/jason-lescalleet-pesmi-o-nicemer/174263493

THE TROPHY TAPE TOUR

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

In 2012, Erstwhile Records released my 2xCD called SONGS ABOUT NOTHING.
This album was received very well by friends, fans, and critics.  SONGS ABOUT NOTHING appeared on many year-end lists (http://yearendlists.com/2012/12/wire-top-50-release-of-2012).

In 2013, I began soliciting artists to create videos for the 13 tracks that comprise the first disc of SONGS ABOUT NOTHING. I found 13 different artists whose work I respect and admire. 13 artists who understand my music in a way that allows them to create a visual interpretation for an otherwise abstract artform. The results vary greatly in approach and style, but the music maintains a cohesive thread that commands the full attention of viewers for the entire 36 minutes.

I finally completed this project in 2014 and I’m embarking on a short screening tour to showcase these beautiful videos on large screens.  It is my ultimate goal to screen TROPHY TAPE in each of the cities represented by the 13 collaborators.

The TROPHY TAPE tracklist is as follows:
  • The Beauty of Independent Music – Aaron Dilloway [Oberlin, OH]
  • Old Theme – Ellen Frances [New York, NY]
  • Tarnished Copper (Copper Will Never Be Gold) – Annie Feldmeier Adams [Chicago, IL]
  • The Loop – Justin Meyers [Minneapolis, MN]
  • Euphoric Sting – Antony Milton [Wellington, New Zealand]
  • Beauty Is A Bowtie (HTDW) – C Spencer Yeh [New York, NY]
  • The Power of Pussy – Olivia Block [Chicago, IL]
  • Escargot – Adel Souto [New York, NY]
  • In the Morning – Neil Young Cloaca [Turners Falls, MA]
  • Friday Night in a Catholic Home – Todd Deal [Worcester, MA]
  • 10 Amp Waves – Jubal Brown [Toronto, ON]
  • I Killed Another Day – Heidi Alasuvanto [Oulu, Finland]
  • In Through The Out Door & Another Whore – Robert Beatty [Lexington, KY]
