Monolith -- Free Download & crowdfunding for your copy of the limited edition release.

Free download of the electronic, space-music album from my solo side projekt AS LONELY AS DAVE BOWMAN on Bandcamp and if you like what you hear, maybe you'll support at Kickstarter.

This is amazing and awesome! Four days in and MONOLITH is 80% to the goal!!! You all are amazing! But don't worry, there are still copies available of the limited edition release. The $3000 goal is the point at which I can fund the manufacturing of the CD-release and the first 50 Plexiboxes. There are additional copies available from the 300-edition run. So if you want a copy, do go visit and pledge.

And also, my unusual strategy seems to be working. I am giving away the entire album for free on Bandcamp, and yet you care about my work enough to become part of the group that makes the physical edition possible. That feels really great!

Unlike my work in Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Dave Bowman is full-on electronic music: droning space, wordless drift with long suspended passages. Covering Bowman’s journey to the Monolith near Jupiter, the album touches the edges of isolation and glacial solitude, with a discernible warm human core. MONOLITH‘s epic expanses, asteroid flybys, serene ambient moments, vast open textures, and warmer hues of sparse remoteness are barren, yet without leaving the listener abandoned. Think of it as drone insulation rather than drone isolation.
An interview at MusicTap where I talk about As Lonely As Dave Bowman, sharing my music on Patreon before it's "finished," crowdfunding, and changes in the industry. Good read.

Interesting theory that HAL was cheating at chess in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey! Summary At Wikipedia. And more in-depth details about Hal's sanity.
