Eamon Harkin

FACT Mix

Eamon and Justin have submitted this week’s FACT Mix. It’s a companion piece to Weekends and Beginnings, their first official mix CD, released just last month . You can stream and download the mix above and read a little more on what the folks at FACT had to say right here.

Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin: Live From Mister Sunday, July 20, 2014

Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin live at Mister Sunday in Industry City on Sunday, July 20. Completely independent of the mixing desk, this set was captured by a microphone perched in a tree just off the dancefloor.

Looking Back On 2013: Justin Carter

As has become tradition, Eamon and I attempt to wrap a bow around the musical year that was with our Best Of lists. As usual, I had a hard time limiting my list to things that came out in 2013, or even limiting it to just music; that Turrell piece made me feel like I’d just heard a symphony, and Herbie Hancock’s use of the vocoder on Sunlight is still yet to be matched. (No matter how hard Daft Punk tried this year.)

Dirg Gerner’s Dirg Gerner EP on Eglo
I can’t say enough about this record. Beautiful melody after beautiful melody, warm production, amazing songs. I played it and played it, but it never got old.

James Turrell’s Aten Reign at the Guggenheim
Last year I waxed on about Philip Glass and Robert Wilson’s Einstein on the Beach. At the time Wilson said, “You don’t have to understand anything. It’s a work where you can go and get lost. That’s the idea.”

Aten Reign, James Turrell’s all-encompassing light installation inside the Guggenheim rotunda, was the visual art equivalent. There was no focal point, which is kind of like having an opera with no plot. It was beautiful and impossible to capture in photo, video or anything else – nothing but experience. A total inspiration in terms of what I want for our parties.

A little note: This show is over, but Turrell has a career retrospective at the LACMA until early April, and here’s a map of all of his installations around the world.

5 Hours of Eamon Harkin from Mister Sunday

644575_10151010894125771_1970191739_n

A live recording from Mister Sunday on August 4th this year. Eamon played solo from beginning to end as Justin took a weekend off and we caught the whole set on tape. Here it is unedited just as it happened, clocking in at almost 5 hours. We hope you like it. Eamon is happy to respond to any track ID requests in the Soundcloud timeline if he can remember what the tracks are!

P.S. Justin played the next Mister Sunday on Aug 11 solo but recording issues meant his set was not captured. We’ll aim to get a solo set up from Mister Carter in the near future.
