*BLOOD RHYTHMS is returning in May for the first time in over a year, at a DIY location in Chicago.  Get in touch for details.  There are also a couple of other Chicago shows in the works.  Stay tuned!

Arvo contributed to a compilation benefiting DAPL activists.  Curated by James Keeler of WILT, Hedorah, and other quality projects, it features Thirteen Hurts, PBK, GX Jupitter-Larsen, Paranoid Time, and more.

There is also a track that is probably the final compilation track with Upheaval version (92), although there are chronologically definitely some versions which haven't come out yet.  There will be 100 of these versions, but no more of them  are going to be on compilations in the spirit of the Upheaval series.  Some further versions will probably end up on a cassette and/or a radio installation.

Thirteen Hurts and Arvo remixed by Marlo Eggplant were aired on WZRD by Dirty Moskowitz, along with Hans Grusel's Krankenkabinet, Yello, William Basinski, Thomas Dimuzio, and more...  LISTEN HERE....    There is also this archive where the Blood Rhythms ASSEMBLY LP was aired with Robert Turman, Big City Orchestra, Kommissar Hjuler und Mama Baer, Jarboe, Cliff Edwards, and more...  LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN

Arvo was on WZRD for a few hours, with a montage of ethnic pop, tribal rhythms, black metal, and crazed industrial, other things.  Among the artists featured were:  Coil, Recoil, Adult., The Good Rats, Dave Ball + Jon Savage, Pharmakon, Sudden Infant, and more.  LISTEN HERE

Sequencer Works Volume Three was reviewed by CASSETTE GODS 
Here is an excerpt:  Did I say “face-melting”? Sure did. Arvo Zylo’s chaos comes packaged across a wide range of frequencies and patterns, and “confrontational” is certainly a good term to describe the results. Side A is decidedly more industrial-heavy, while side B tracks its muddy boots across the thresholds of noise and drone, but never getting caught in stasis. And while 88 minutes is a heavy slab to devour at once, there’s lots to discover as you maneuver your way through the wreckage. Start here, start at volume one, start on the moon, who cares. For maximum self-flagellation, make it a triple and set your out-of-office for the afternoon. And don’t forget where you put that Yamaha RM1x – despite what I said earlier, you might need it later if you get inspired.

Thirteen Hurts was aired on WZRD on April 5 alongside Yannick Dauby, Daniel Menche, Christian Marclay, Psychic TV, Soft Cell, Moondog, Robert Wyatt, and more.... LISTEN HERE

 The deadline for the cat-themed open call compilation PUSSIFICATION is coming to a close on May 1st.  More info HERE and fb event page HERE
