New video work for the first IOS release of 2014, our 31st anniversary. Hinting at the video presentation for the 3/1/14 show with Negativland in Oakland.
The audio is a remixed version overview of the new tape/cd-r "Surrender" released by Chicago's own No Part Of It label
Run by Arvo Zylo, host of The Delirius Insomniac radio show haunting the airwaves of WLUW into the wee hours of dreary Monday Nights since 2008.
the video features my heart scanned in 2008 showing remarkable blockages, snowstorms that ravaged the midwest during this winter like it used to be 2014, burning man 2000 images i took during one of the best weeks I've ever spent, Laurie, the love of my life's hair blowing during a summer sunset 2010, oscilloscope images of modular synth waves, a new york subway ride, jellyfish & anemone at shedd aquarium,and a fabulously scary life size clown at a street carnival in Hamburg Germany 2008. amongst other anomalies. Cheers!

"Illusion of Safety, just passing its 30th year since inception, is often regarded as the innovator of "ambient industrial". Despite having traversed nearly every arena of the experimental milieu, performed prestigious fests all over the world, and collaborated with some of widest ranging and heaviest hitting of the avante garde, core member/founder Daniel Burke has both shown a return to form and a veritable bouquet of new frontiers in his most recent outing, "Surrender". In just under 60 minutes, the listener is taken on a dizzying carousel ride where everything but the kitchen sink is employed to weave a deeply personal (abstract, wordless) narrative that comes off as minimalistic, condensed, and bombastic. But at the same time, it is a constantly shifting, complex and ornate grid iron amalgam of genuine enthusiasm and horror. Recommended if you like a complete disregard for the myopic trappings and short sighted formulae of contemporary sound art today. "
