Shivervein. An Ending.

I’ve been creating music under the name of An Early Morning Letter, Displaced since 1999. 2 full length albums, 3 ep albums, and a variety of compilation and remix work stretching all the way to 2013. Back in 2012, I decided I needed to break from this and do something fresh. Shivervein was born from these ideas as a project separate from An Early Morning Letter, Displaced… not weighed down by any of the restrictions and expectations I had placed around it I’m a vastly different person from the one who created An Early Morning Letter, Displaced so many years

Contributions to the “63 Remix Project”

It’s been a number of years since I’ve done any remix work. Close to a decade, actually! When Alexa of Partition 36 invited me to participate in the 63 Remix Project late last year – I thought it was a great idea. I’ve always enjoyed Partition 36 and Alexa has contributed to both Emergent Collective releases. Not a hard decision to make, right? I’m quite pleased at how the tracks I’ve remixed came together. If you enjoy the Partition 36 originals on 63 – I hope that you feel I’ve done them justice through these reinterpretations. Here is the full
