SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE & ELISA AMBROGIO TOUR SET TO BLOW NEXT WEEK!

posted April 16th, 2015

His book, entitled The Hexadic System, is not simply a manual; it touches on the legacies of ritual magic, combinatorial thinking and  the science of music using algorithmic patterns!

2015, and the silence has been broken with Simple Songs. Jim O'Rourke is ready to talk to you again. First, he wants you to know he's not dead-yet. But you're not, either-and really, what have you done lately? Certainly not made your first pop album since 2001-and even if you had, it probably wasn't any good. Meanwhile Simple Songs is more than just a first of anything since whenever! It's an amazing record of musical song entertainment-because Jim O'Rourke knows what he wants and... (read more)
