Discrete Class – Counter Hegemonic Release

This is my solo project of ambient and experimental electronic music. Some of the songs on this album were created in early 2010 and it has been a slow work in progress since. I have released some versions of a few of the songs on soundcloud in the past, but I wanted to get a good full length set of material to release to the world before the end of this year. It provides a sense of closure for me on the material instead of having it sitting on a hard-drive and revisited every now and then.

Hegemonic
1: preponderant influence or authority over others : domination
2: the social, cultural, ideological, or economic influence exerted by a dominant group

Since the release yesterday I have been sending out some emails to smaller ambient electronic labels and blogs that review music of that genre with limited success. I though I would post some links to interesting site I found in the process.

-Awesome blog of ambient electronic music, but also sound art, and various creative audio projects.
