:::Offset Needle Radius LIVE on the radio:::

Through a fierce last minute campaign to drum up some performance opportunities in the Northwest I've been offered two live on air slots.  Although I have guest engineered on live radio and played in a band live on the radio, this will be a first for Offset Needle Radius.

  To hear streaming broadcasts, check out KAOS Radio Olympia for the Dancing In Circles radio show 9 to 11pm Pacific (Midnight to 2am Eastern) and to KPSU Radio Portland for the What's This Called? show on Saturday February 5th 12 noon to 1pm (3-4pm Eastern). 


Northwest Territories, Here Comes Offset Needle Radius:::

Last minute preparations and attempts to try and squeeze just a couple of performance opportunities out of the Northwest has so far resulted in one booking so far, for Friday February 4th at Gallery 1412.  The show will be 8pm with local acoustic songster Cowlick.  I will be spinning, soothing, and torturing the steel wheels generously donated by my friend and once co worker Matt Cardinal. 

Unfortunately my timing for a visit to the Northwest is not quite ideal as I seem to be fitting my time there in between the "Is That Jazz?" festival and the Seattle Improvised Music festival.  So it goes.  I am grateful for the opportunity to bring it to Seattle in any capacity.  Thanks to the generous people at Gallery 1412.

Gallery 1412 is located at 1412 18th Avenue in Seattle between Pike and Union.  If you are reading this, I hope you'll come check it out:::


Bonus Track from Impending Release

   Fionas Week was recorded over a week residency in Concord, NH in January 2010.  I set up in the kitchen of the house and recorded every night.  Instrumentation consisted of the 700c one cross pattern bicycle wheel mounted on the Park TS 2 stand, as well as Fiona's collection of instruments for little people including miniature piano, plastic keyboard xylophone, whistles, mini cassette recorders, and a buddha box. This track was a bonus that didn't make it onto the final album but is none the less a good example of the recordings.
