Last month Gates had the privilege of performing at THE MUSIC GALLERY here in Toronto, Ontario. It was a long time coming desire to have Gates perform there and we had an excellent night. Everyone at The Music Gallery was incredibly accommodating and professional and to top it all off there was a goddamn FREE pancake dinner after we had finished. How's that for a follow up to a set of spectral doom?

Paul Hodge, The Gallery's Technical Director, recorded the evening's concert and we now present it for streaming via bandcamp. Orchestrated as one continuous performance of the songs from 'Moths Have Eaten the Core'.

In addition, long time friend and supporter Karol Orzechowski graciously provided us with a load of amazing photography, some of which I've posted below. 

A physical release of this may come about on cassette in the near future.

Listen here, THEY HIDE
one 33min performance split into 3 separate tracks.

thanks to all who were a part of making this event happen right,

an interview about 'The Call'

Great interview with Karol Orzechowski and myself about 'The Call', a film of Karol's that I composed music for as Gardenia. Interview by Michelle Morinaga and part of new online magazine Antilogy an initiative by Toby Driver of Kayo Dot/Tartar Lamb. Really excited about this one, there should be some great stuff happening on it in the near future.
