Been whizzing along pretty fast here in the new year.

 

Back tracking, after coming home from recording with (every drummers dream) Tony Levin I had the privilege of being joined in my home studio by the worlds most phenonmenal rollerskating brid-punching thereminist Pamelia Kurstin . Last year I met Pamelia in NYC while touring with the CGT and then months later I grabbed Pamilia off an Austin bandstand, when she came through town touring with Barbez, and we started my newest duo (tuo?), Tunisia. Yes I literally took her from the stage to my home after her gig and we recorded from about 3am till about 10 am when i returned her to the Barbez bus for there departure to the next gig, after that she moved to Europe and has recently come back to America for a few weeks. If you have not heard Barbez I can highly recommend them. Pamilia's 'sleep over session' was a good start but this past week we had 5 days together and got 6 more songs flushed out... We hope the Tunisia CD will be done by summer.

Here is a taste of our first collaboration, our untitled late night after show ditty.

 

A few days after Pamelia left Markus arrived for the second round of work for the next Tuner CD. Besides arriving with a suitcase (if you have been reading my site you might remember the Airlines have lost his luggage on every trip) Markus brought back incredible vocals he cut in Austria with Sirenee - its such a pleasure to edit, arrange and compose around her voice.

This Saturday Markus and I will join Laura Scarborough for a gentle gig at Café Mundi in Austin and then next weds Markus and I will do a master class at Austin Community College (don't tell the students but I’m a little nervous about doing music in an academic setting).

 

Also with help from Markus I launched a KTU myspace page where we hope to soon begin posting KTU videos. Check KTU here:

Just a quick note to let you know that there's a free download of an audience recording of an improvised Reuter/Kuljuntausta/Mastelotto show (Helsinki, Finland, April 2004) available at www.projekction.net

 Petri, Markus, Pat during the show

This collaboration eventually led to the TUNER project that Markus and I launched in March 2005.

 

I spent last week-end at Saint-Claire Recorders, a stunning studio in Kentucky recording Ronan Chris Murphy record with Tony Levin and Mike Keneally.

Happy Newest Year!

Good news/bad news

Our new TUNER morsel  (that we have since titled 'White Cake Sky") had well over 500 downloads in 10 days.

Bad news: We have taken the download down.

Good news: We have launched a TUNER site at Myspace.com and reposted the mp3, and others (incl. a free download of the full 'flinch' track from our debut album TOTEM). Go to http://www.myspace.com/tunertunes. Login and become a friend. We'll make exclusive previews and out-takes of TUNER music available there regularly.

 

U.T., in Austin, won the big football game. Our humble town has gone nutty (not sure if thats good or bad news).

 

 

RCM IN KY

No, no, no the state not the gel. Later this week I go to what looks like the most amazing studio (http://www.saint-claire.com/)  to record a Ronan Chris Murphy solo record.  The tracking band will be RCM, me, Tony Levin and Mike Keneally and as if that's not enough the RCM band has one more member who will be absent from tracking but overdub his parts the following week... drum roll... double drum roll... Terry Bozzio! RCM has a rather unusual request in that I play drums and Terry plays cymbals.

 

Other hot new news

KTU has been invited to the Victoriaville festival near Montreal this coming May and are booking a few more select dates in North America to coincide with that brief window when all our schedules coincide.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Some cookies I made with my daughter Noe. Click to enlarge!

 

This untitled piece was the first track Markus and I came up with in early December. Enjoy! The download will be available for about a week.
