Work continues on a New Jersey Statewide Tour which “has been sporadically underway due to financial and tragic interruption”. Progress can be seen here: From The Past To You.

Also in 2016, we had the release of A Thousand Blended Notes, which is only to be played again in spring.

Messier Object

Signals have been received. A change in course has been detected. Will Messier Object deliver a new recording?

Floods

Quiet and still, like frozen swamps.

New: At Work “A Thousand Blended Notes”

At Work - A Thousand Blended Notes

At Work - A Thousand Blended Notes

At Work returns with his eighth release, fourth album and first release in four years. This is an album intended for early spring listening. It may be best experienced alone, perhaps on walks; from the first sign of spring to when that fresh spring green in the leaves turns to a more mature green. Then put it away till the early part of the season repeats again.

All lines written, programmed, and produced mostly in early spring over each of the last eight years.

Released today.

Note: No beats.

Format: Digital
Released: April 8, 2016
Total Time: 00:37:54
Design: Nice Looking Designs

Gimpo’s M25 25 Hour Spin 2015

Gimpo's M25 25 Hour Spin 2015

Gimpo continues the 25 year commitment to following London’s M25 Orbital motorway for 25 hours once a year on the weekend closest to the spring equinox.

The 18th Spin is going on right now (Starts: 12 noon Saturday 21st March, and ends 1pm Sunday 22nd March 2015).

Gimpo and crew send movies and images from the road which then appear on Gimpo’s website.

While there are no current plans for music releases from Gimpo, Batona Music does get to host the videos on our YouTube channel.


Here are the videos so far from this weekend. There are also playlists for 2013 and 2014.
