Justin’s space project, Zephyr, has begun! Check out the info page to read about the plan and to find out how you can help. It’s going to be a great adventure, and will hopefully result in some incredible footage and still images. Plus, it’s a neat way to get a copy of Justin’s upcoming piano album, Origin!
Hi all, Justin here. Today I’m very excited to announce my latest album, Origin, which will be released on June 19th. Origin began with a single track, the title track, and took me completely by surprise. I had just finished work on Kingdom Crumble, not expecting to make any new music for a while, when I sat down and wrote what I still consider to be my best song. For three and a half years I’ve sat on it, trying to figure out what story it was trying to tell, and wondering how I could create an entire album around it that did it justice without trying to compete with it.
Justin’s first full-length novel, Shipyard Rook, is now available for pre-order on iTunes and will be released on Tuesday, May 29th.
Of course, you can also get a free sample right now for iBooks, so be sure to visit the iBookstore and get a head start on the first two chapters. You won’t be disappointed!
[Update: Shipyard Rook is available now]
I recently had the pleasure of contributing to an exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Craft for ceramicist Betty Feves. In addition to the extensive physical collection, they had several audio recordings and a digital copy of one of Betty’s sketchbooks that they wanted to include as part of the experience, but were having trouble finding an app that could do what they needed. I offered to help, using a simplified version of forScore for the sketchbook and a new app for the audio that I’ve named Ayvee. It’s a multimedia kiosk for iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, and I’ve since released it on the App Store in case any other museums find themselves needing something similar.
