Third Life is the room where 90 percent of all Ouest music has happened.  We’ll be playing two extended sets of our music.  Get comfy.

I am pleased to announce that my fifth solo cd will be released by Students Of Decay in 2009.  This eponymous 6-track record was made in 2008 and is sourced from live shows, radio performances and studio work.  Unlike Commonwealth, this record is six shorter pieces of music employing melodies, instrumentation and various recording methods/fidelities. I know it’s a little weird to have a self-titled record, but I had to for this one. Hopefully you’ll hear why.  Look for it at the beginning of next year.

More soon…
