Those who dwell beneath the meadow 08

This is one of many drawings from my sketch book. I plan to eventually upload all of them when I can summon the energy to make some nice scans.

Faded Suburbs review in Japanese

Faded Suburbs has received a very nice review on a Japanese website:『faded-suburbs』/ 

Luckily Jasper can speak Japanese and was able to make a translation. Here it is.

The surreally named group Bristles on the Carapace are Jasper Rice and Will.t, a duo from Australia. I'm not familiar with Jasper's other musical projects, but Will.t's project Paneye has releases on Dog Eared Records and Secret Station. Paneye's sound is not far from that of this release, and has a loosely ambient sound to it. 
The title of the album, Faded Suburbs is wretched and drifting, but the contents have a lo-fi ambient sound. The whole album's sound is not so much underwater, but rather cloudy, and I wonder if this is intentional or whether the cost of the equipment has any relation to it. Through this, it could be thought that some manner of ambience is achieved. It is a mysterious sound. 
It's melodies are not like melodies, and yet it isn't drone. Ephemeral melodies appear, delicate and foam-like, then seem to vanish at an unknown time. In this way it is similar to the title of the album, something which the titles of all the songs do not grasp. “Categorisation isn't particuarly necessary” it seems to say. However, while obviously being made quite cheaply, it does leave a lasting impression. 
Faded Suburbs perhaps has the meaning of being faded from memory. Let us assume that here, in this abstract pale sound, it is as if we are peeking into the midst of a memory. Perhaps the hairy yellow monster on the album cover is “Bristles on the carapace” and perhaps he is gazing at the “faded suburbs” around him. 
Incidentally, as it sounds similar to Paneye's “Along the way to the big top, my life just dissolved”. Those pleased with that release should check this out.

Jasper's Poem

Jasper Rice sent me this poem. It sums up late 2008 and early 2009 very nicely:

The second last summer of a decade/ lying in sunbleached cemetary grass/ high with the brothers Treffry/ Oh the summer of 2009/ I drift through lectures like a wafting breeze/ pedalling coastal roads to ease my wanderlust/ and drinking ten dollar wine /
it's summer-in Summer Hill/ And I'm beneath the railway lines/ high with the brothers Treffry.

Santa's Dildo

       'Santa's Dildo'- Will.t 09

This painting was originally titled 'Mrs Claus' Dildo' but I thought it was too sexist. Jess Mutascio still maintains that my first title was better. What do you think?

along the way to the bigtop, my life just dissolved by Paneye

In this past month I have become a bit distracted from my 'some leaves never fall' record and have made 'along the way to the bigtop, my life just dissolved'. I brought out my old sax for this one. I didn't think I'd ever play it again.
I'm sending this out for free to anyone who wants to listen to it while I continue to work on my next full length release.
UPDATE: Some people have told me track 9 on this EP isnt working. If that's the case for you, download it here:

Fields of Empty Scarecrow Coats

Fields of Empty Scarecrow Coats was born last night with Jesse Donald.
The truth is that the two of us have been playing songs together for 2 and a half years and now have finally decided to do some proper recording.
The band name came about while the two of us were walking to my apartment from artschool and, to occupy us on the walk, Jesse suggested we come up with two words to describe one another. It turned into Jesse describing me as a 'blue matchstick amidst the roots of a tree' and me describing Jesse as a 'jelly scarecrow in a goon-stained business shirt'.  Hardly two words each, but the band name came out of that later on.

We've also set up a myspace with a few of the songs we recorded last night. It was pretty much one long extended jam so I cut out different sections of the recording that were more coherent.

Our demo can be downloaded here (very rough, more to come):

Last night I added some guitar and vocals over a bassline and some drums MetaPhex sent me.
The end result was a very relaxed song about horizontal waterfalls.

MetaPhex plays in The Summertime Lows along with recording solo stuff.

Lunar Testing Lab may also be providing some drums over a song or two on 'some leaves never fall.'

Art here by Metaphex....I love it!

bristles on the carapace- Flooded Archives

'Flooded Archives' is the result of a jam that Jasper Rice and myself had in march.
I recorded this jam and the following night included more ambient guitar soundscapes and some piano.

T Shirt Prints

                                                 'Candle Gaze' by Will.t 2008

I've used this old drawing called 'Candle Gaze' (originally done for Lungs Ofsun demo cover) and printed it onto a T-Shirt. I think it's turned out quite well. Is wearing shirts displaying your own artwork a bit pretentious do you think?

First Post Greetings

'Peering into a frozen pond' (text version) by Will.t 2009

Hello all,

I'll be using this blog to post my art and music.....and maybe other's music too.

I'll start by providing a permanent link to Paneye's first album: Wilt and Loom-

Paneye began in late 2008, proceeding my brief moniker Lungs Ofsun.

Paneye was originally taken from a song I wrote in 2007 called 'Pan Eye', and used as the title of a short stop-motion film. After 'Paneye' was well received at the Sydney Underground Film festival, I decided I liked the name and used it to replace Lungs Ofsun.

'Paneye' means to stare into a frozen pond.
Originally though, the song itself was about a really strange guy called James who I once worked with.
James would often tell me about his pet dog, who he would claim possessed naturally blue hair. James' Pan Eye refers to the kaleidoscopic way he saw life. 

A brief list of my recordings can be seen here:
