My new analog synth heavy electronics CD, “Suffering and Defiance”, is available for a pre-order (at a discounted price). You can hear samples from four tracks as well. If you’re not into CDs it will be for sale soon on Bandcamp with the option of getting a limited edition 11×14” print of the cover artwork.

I recently started a new recording-only project called Shadow Structure. It could be described as “post-industrial sludge” for lack of a better term.

There are two tracks up on Bandcamp now:

I will just be posting one song at a time, as they are completed, at my own pace. For now there will be no physical media releases or merch. This may change down the road.

More info here:

I am not doing any social media for this project, so if you enjoy it, please spread the word.

Thanks. -Jonathan

My album “Empty Box” is now available. The tape / box version is sold out from Cipher Productions but the following distros have / will have a few copies as of 10.23.22 or so: Sentimental Youth, Scream & Writhe, Cloister, Self Abuse, and White Centipede.

You can also listen to / order the digital version here:

“Empty Box” is over an hour of heavy electronics, individually dubbed on chrome cassettes, and limited to 57 copies. Each tape is housed in a 5″ box that also contains liner notes, and one of my original drawings from the “Empty Faces” series that is featured on this release (you can see more here). 57 drawings were individually ripped up and put into envelopes for every copy. The artwork can be reassembled and framed if you like (scroll down for example photos).

As I mentioned previously, there is also a digital-only mix of the album titled “Nichts” available on Bandcamp here.

A huge thank you to Chris Groves / Cipher Productions for doing the release (and for the top photo). Photo below by Joe McDonald (thanks!).

I have a brand new track on Paroxysm: A Benefit Compilation For Leslie Keffer. There are many friends, and other excellent artists included, PLUS it’s for a good cause. I would really appreciate you supporting this release if you’re able.

Thanks. -Jonathan Canady

Looking forward to performing with two of my personal PDX favorites.

Both of these albums DESTROY…

My latest analog synth noise / heavy electronics release is available now. It is a digital-only instrumental version of my tape release “Empty Box” – coming very soon on Cipher Productions.

Also, here is a live video from my live performance last Friday (using some of the same instruments as “Nichts”).

If you enjoy either, please spread the word.

Thanks. -Jonathan
