The second volume of my Other World Music series, under my own name, has been released.

Again, it draws its influences from various musical traditions and forms and incorporates some of the research of my NHS music fellowship this year.

 

I am just pressing up tapes and releasing them myself although they will also be in shops such as Boomkat sometime around the middle of December.

It is limited to a run of 111.

You can buy it from my website here:

For the last few years I have been working increasingly away from the dancefloor under my own name, and soaking up more varied influences. Other World Music will be a series of albums reflecting my explorations in these new fields, part electronic, part acoustic, and exploring facets of sound and music such as psycho-acoustics, modal forms and various other approaches to modern composition.

Other World Music Vol.1 is the first release on my new label of the same name, and represents a bit of a crossing point in some ways, as is nearly always the way when setting a new course.

The release is digital and cassette, and can be bought from my Bandcamp, although the digital release on its own can be bought from all the usual places. The cassette comes with a free download version and is housed in a nice handmade lino-print sleeve with a tracklist card. If you would like it signed, just ask at checkout on Bandcamp. It is limited at 100 copies.

This year I will be writing and releasing more music as Alex Menzies. Music that is more personal and not so easily categorised.
To this end I have a new website dedicated to my composition work under my own name, which will also serve as a hub for new music released this year.
There will be several releases this year in digital formats from the usual places, with a solid format LP featuring a ‘best of’ selection at the end of the year.
