As an experimental musician and public librarian, my ability to offer financial assistance to those in need is somewhat limited. Therefore, I have a simple offer for you all: if you send me a message telling me that you donated to the Haitian relief efforts, I will send you a link to a free mp3 copy of my new album. You can send me a DM on Twitter (@sacredmusick), on facebook (facebook.com/wesley.covey) or via email (things10thousand @ gmail.com). I don’t need to know how much you donated, or even to which group. I trust that you will not lie to me, and will have made a donation already or will proceed to do so. It’s that simple.
As to what you get, it’s a free mp3 copy of Emerging From the Earth, by The Ten Thousand Things (note: my website has not been updated in years. I’m working on it.). I am pretty shit at self-promotion, but here goes: Emerging From the Earth is musickal alchemy. Working on the idea of combining elements of our natural world into something that transcends everyday reality, forming gold out of everyday lead, I have used guitars, bass, vocals and samples to create an album of spiritual drones. This is aural mysticism, seeking communion with a higher power through meditatively repetitive sound. Samples can be heard here.
May you all be well, and please join me in thinking creatively about how to help.
