    New LASERGNU release: WE CAN REBUILD HIM (E.P.)



    LASERGNU's second pandemic release comes out nearly two years since our last E.P. Six tracks of oddball electronica, from adventure pop to metaoccult ambient, this album is guaranteed not to summon demons, poltergeists, elder gods, disgruntled extra-dimensional beings, or any other supernatural or metaphysical adversaries.












    Some sample tracks from the E. P.

    New Video for my poem "Hush"

    I created a new video for my poem "Hush." I wrote the first draft of this poem in 1995 and revised it for my 2018 book Self-Defence for the Brave and Happy. It was collected again in my most recent book Shared Universe: New and Selected Poems 1995-2020. Enjoy.

    Spacescapes

    I want to put down some thoughts about the paintings I've been working on lately. Since June, 2021, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, I've been working on a series of paintings I'm calling "spacescapes" (until I think of something better). 

    Beginning with "Polka Dot Asteroid Field," and with the most recent painting being "Dodechahedron in Pixellated Space" (as of February 10, 2022), there are seven "full-sized" canvases so far, with a handful of studies on smaller canvases and paper. This is perhaps the most sustained series of visual works I've ever produced--though it incorporates some design elements that have been present in my paintings for years, namely the confetti-like, multicoloured "polka dots" (circles) and "pixellizations" (squares)--and I feel it may be the beginning of truly sustained project, if not a signature style. 

    More thoughts to come.
