I was a bit surprised to see this on Bandcamp, considering that Jim mentioned he doesn't really endorse this sort of distribution/streaming platform when he was interviewed a little while ago by Time Out Japan. It's actually pretty great to have these available, and I shall get them all (slowly but surely).

I agree, poor form!!!


SonicBebs 09.17.2013 12:08 AM

Yeah, but, Jim left sy nearly 10 years ago, so...

stu666 09.17.2013 01:34 AM

I can move the thread to the Sonic Section if you want....

SonicBebs 09.18.2013 12:52 AM

If it'll help spread the love Stu, move it

Steamroom 9 is now available on bancamp:

It seems (and I certainly hope) that Jim will be releasing new Steamrooms on a regular basis.
That's really great news. But first I got to find some time and dive into the 9th episode.

Some of this material was actually previously released in limited runs, some even on cassette, a good portion is from his early days around the time when he was in and graduated from DePaul University... When he was really interested inminimalism and musique concrete tape techniques, well he still is, of course!

Old or new this is some of the best Jim solo material I've ever heard, thanks for posting!!!! I love how Jim has essentially become a white Japanese man, he makes Bill Murray look like a bitch for not taking over Japan in Lost in Translation! Now it seems I have DAYS worth of new music to listen too, great selection of noise DUB to listen to while doing my grading ;)

A new 'Old News'-instalment (number 9) has been released:

Instant order for me :) I like this series a lot. Apparently, this one features a brand new composition by Jim.

Mr. O'Rourke is quite busy lately ... :)

he also had a track on the recent third air texture comp, 'low bow'. buy the whole thing though, really good. features tracks from oren ambarchi, ikue mori, phil niblock, fennesz, pole, heaps more.

listened to steamroom no. 1 today and i must say. what a build up on both tracks! my cup of tea.
collab. recorded live somewhere in japan. nice set.

can't wait to listen to the rest.

sirki 02.28.2014 05:43 AM

This totally made my day:
I wish the whole set was recorded.

SonicBebs 02.28.2014 10:27 AM

That's the best thing ever!
