New Release: Sic Transit Gloria

LUC_comingsoonI have a new album out which is now available on bandcamp and will soon be available on audio cassette via Santiago, Chile-based cassette label Etcs Recs. The cassette edition will be limited to 50 copies and I’ve put my personal copies up for pre-order on my bandcamp as well. I expect to have them in 4-6 weeks. I’m very happy with how this one turned out. The sounds and song titles are references to my motherland: Chile, and its turbulent past. On these recordings I used guitar and autoharp. Thank you.

“Sic Transit Gloria” can be streamed, downloaded, bought and/or stolen here

Live #1 CD-R

cdrI’ve started making limited edition CD-Rs with hand-made packaging containing live recordings available at live performances for $3 each. The first one, in an ongoing series I’ll be doing for a while, was made available at my last show at Prospect Range in Brooklyn. Live #1 CD-R was a first edition of 10 and the copies leftover from the show were made available a day later on my Bandcamp page. Thankfully, there are more than 10 people who listen so the first edition sold out pretty quickly. I will be making another edition of the same CD-R available at my next two performances: here in Brooklyn on 11/21 and then for a 12/27 show in Oakland, CA (my first time performing on the West Coast).  As always, the music can be downloaded for free, or for “pay what you want”. The payments you make help me out a lot. They help me with materials and with being able to continue doing what I’m doing. Thank you.

Serpentine Pt. III – Live At The Tarot Society

luciThis was my third and last live performance doing a variation of the same song/theme. Serpentine Pt I and Pt II of this track appeared in “Tile II“. This is from a live room recording from an August 23, 2015 show at the Tarot Society in Brooklyn. The other performers that evening were Ariadne and Octonomy.

While waiting so do my set, I was the opener, my partner and I were sitting at a small round table outside the venue and one of the Tarot Society staff members, not knowing that I was performing that night, asked if I would like a reading. I had to decline due to time constraints so she then asked if I wanted to just pick one card before I played. I agreed and so she spread the cards over the table and I picked up the card that I felt most drawn to. I picked it up and without looking at its reverse handed it over to her. She turned it over and told me it was “The Hermit”, hence the image I used for this track.
