Chrys Bocast: News

shows in Colorado - June 5, 2017

Hey all - I've added some dates with Stompin George Eldon in June in Colorado! I've gotten an advance copy of the Larkenlyre Omnia recording, and it's lovely! I'll post a proper review and story about the work soon.

Have a great summer!



Re-release of Stratagem with extra tracks! - March 26, 2017


I really like the interface at Bandcamp, so I've made a new version of Stratagem available there with some bonus tracks! Check it all out!

Meanwhile, everyone's digging the Grand Transients. Turns out our track "The Restless Hours" was used on a major television show in December, before we had even officially released the album. I do wish someday someone would use our music in a NICE television show, but you do what you can...


More airplay! - February 22, 2017

Thanks to John Diliberto and crew at Echoes for the lovely comments and continuing airplay on Echoes in February! Loving it!!



Echoes Top 25 in January - January 28, 2017


The new Grand Transients album is getting some nice love from the PRI radio program Echoes!

Echoes Top 25 for January

not skipping a beat... - January 8, 2017

I've finished a few tracks for the new Matt Labarge album already. I don't want to give any details anyway, but I have done some things I haven't attempted before on recordings, and I do think that fans of my work will enjoy this album too when it comes out.

Spark the Future is here! - December 26, 2016

The album's in at the factory! Of course it arrived an hour after I left town for a short winter break, but it will be out in January!!

I am jumping right back into recording, as I have a collaboration with Matt Labarge that I'll be working on. I did a good bit of guitar on his last album, Larkenlyre.

I also need to get a follow-up to Through the Airlock organized. I have a number of suitable tracks, but I'll want to get some more novel sound designs to make something truly swell...

New album is mastered! - October 2, 2016

Sounds super-awesome double-wide turbo-charged!!

hot August night - August 17, 2016

recording Matt Covert playing flute, just to change things up...

Mixes finished for new album! - July 11, 2016

Whew! After a long stretch, I have a new album getting ready to be mastered! It's a monster...

Berning, Berning, Berning - April 5, 2016

For my birthday, I did a re-mix for Bernie Sanders! Hope you like it!

Belgium - March 22, 2016

I've posted a melancholy song from deep in the Tokyo Vogue vault today. In solidarity and memoriam...

new album almost finished - December 20, 2015

Hey all,

We've got eight solid tracks, most of them ready to go for mastering. There'll be some new music for you quite soon!

Daisy Glow - October 20, 2015

As part of the Tasti Box/Gallery of Voices show in Des Moines this Saturday, I'll be making a guest appearance in the Daisy Glow set for Tasti Box! This is full-on EDM so bring your dancing shoes and rave on!!

Using this live show to get my lead chops razor-sharp for some of the final tracks on the next album, which is slowly but surely getting done. It'll be upbeat and has a wonderful atmosphere already!

plugging away... - August 24, 2015

still working on new material for the next album. It's sounding amazing!

Seeker Song - May 23, 2015

Daniel Johnson finally released his amazing song based around the piece I wrote for the theme music of To the Best of Our Knowledge. I have permission to share it! You can find it in the Listen section, along with the lyrics (!) and the whole story behind the song, including my take on the work and why it holds special meaning for me.

Whew! - March 16, 2015

Moving full steam ahead with the collaboration with MVS. Several songs are ready-to-launch; the rest need some individual tracking but have their structure and attitude together. This is going to be a good one...

Meanwhile, I'll be doing a show in Colorado at the end of March, doing the rock guitar hero for a band I used to play with semi-regularly several years ago. Should be fun!!

More soon!

War in America - December 12, 2014

A Mark Pistel re-mix of "Laws of Nature" that I was not aware of has come down the tubes - a very aggressive track I might add. I've shared it on the Listen page. I was always unsatisfied with the mix released on the CD (it was done while I was not around, and was… not what I intended).

This mix kicks serious ass!

My time with the Mission U.K. - November 24, 2014

If you ever wondered how that whole chapter went down, I highly recommend Alex Daniele's new book The Mission: At War with the Gods. It is well-written and full of highly researched detail - I bought a couple of copies for my family for Christmas gifts this year. Don't tell them!!

new recordings - November 23, 2014

Slowly whittling away the backlog and planning the new epic...

Guitar Wing - September 30, 2014

So a friend of mine has forwarded me a device that controls MIDI and attaches to the guitar - not a pickup! I think this may be crucial for doing the type of video performance I envision for the near future. I won't have time to mess with it for awhile though… this is a busy time of year for me as I teach (great gig - do a show but you don't have to learn any songs!).

I continue to chip away at the recordings backlog. I'm through with the initial edit of "Clouds" but there are several patches that need attention...

A great summer! - August 29, 2014

A lot of fun shows, beautiful places, and wonderful friends marked my summer! I'll play a little show for some close friends next weekend in Madison - Michael Ver Steegt and Matt Covert may finally get to meet!

So I am now going through some of the many recordings that pile up while I was earning a doctorate, and many of them are top-notch! The issue is whether they will all fit together...

Anyway, I'm finally mixing "Clouds", the Debussy epic I tracked two years ago. It's sounding spectacular!

Hoping for a release for Christmas, but that might be ambitious.

solo shows - June 13, 2014

Looks like I may do a bit of playing this summer to support Intrinsic. Fun last minute show at the Aldo Leopold Foundation last night!

A summer tour? - June 6, 2014

I'm thinking about it...

Earth Day 2014 - April 9, 2014

Here's a poem read and written by Max Garland, set to a piece of new music...

Photograph of Earth from Space, 1972

Please do come to the Madison show April 22!

Larkenlyre - February 28, 2014

An album I contributed a lot of guitar to is now sitting at Echoes #14 slot. Nice news for a Friday!
