Music -

This space is intentionally a part of the void.

Having stating the credo of this site and our lives, but before expounding on what may, to some, appear to be a type marmot or ware-bunny, please do one of five things:

  • Peruse the releases page
  • Go directly to Funkwhale @ thurk.org, where much of our music is available
  • Listen to a series of tracks each composed within 48 hours for the Naviar Records Haiku challenges
  • There is no 4
  • Disregard these links and continue reading

Flavigula Releases
Naviar Records Haiku Challenges


As stated on the bandcamp page and possibly in other places:

Flavigula wavers in crepuscular zones, modulating among ripples and maelstroms, within spectra of snow and hailstones. Neither she makes delineations among the pleasing and unsightly, nor distinctions within the crystalline, shifting phase. Bounding in abstract landscapes, she thrives.

Of course, that is slightly pretentious and says nothing about the musical project itself. I, the writer of these pages, am the main composer and player, although my compatriot in sound sculpting, Christian Michael Newman, can be credited with myriad ideas and end-game scenarios. The bassist in "residence", a Kris Boudreau from Moncton, New Brunswick has also contributed to recent arrangements (whether he knows it or not).


Kredenc Kopců was released on 30 September. It's journey lilts along circuitous, tenebrous paths. Your legs becomes rubbery and twisted as your listen, tumbling you into soft weeds, but also ultimately presenting enlightenment.

It's our second album with Submarine Broadcasting Company and we are very happy with the results. Among the usual suspects, a dextrous Jayrope also guests on percussion.

The appropriately titled previous album, Za Rušení was available 7 December of the previous common epoch.

Were you not compressed into a singularity by the previous few paragraphs, you'd visit myriad other places suited to Flavigula listening:

Firstly, our bandcamp page.

Secondly, the thurk.org funkwhale is brimming with both current and antique Flavigula. These include Omnivorous Expanse (also on Bandcamp ), a project with Tim Rowe, and Morning Ambience , a series of improvisations surveying early morning moods from last June in Praha.

Since I mentioned Tim Rowe, his music can be found on bandcamp .

And Kris Boudreau has a number of fantastic atmospheric releases .

Upon the venerable Audius floats Flavigula albums.

Our lucrative Spotify home is aching for a few streams.

The humble hovel that is Deezer pines equally.

Amazon, Apple Music, etc, also carry our stuff.
