I will be performing a set of heavy analog synth electronics as well as presenting the first-ever screening of my “Basement” video art series on October 15th in Portland, OR.

A digital compilation of early Deathpile material (including one previously unreleased track) is now available on bandcamp.

Also check out the recent book “Fight Your Own War” which features an extended interview with me on the history of Deathpile. Available here on Amazon.

In other news you can see a video edit of my one and only 2016 live performance here on my vimeo page.

Thank you. -Jonathan Canady


Next Saturday I will be doing a live analog synth set featuring a performance art piece by my good friend Peggy Pfenninger. I’m psyched to play with my old Hollow Earth buddy Michael / Blood Box for the first time and of course Control. If you’re in the PDX region try and check it out.



The Listen And Die! 6xLP Box set is out now (featuring DEATHPILE and some of the very best of the 90’s power electronics / noise scene).

Here’s my latest heavy analog synth release and it’s a free download.

This is an alternate soundtrack to my video art piece “Composite Video” that I performed live in Eugene, OR this past Saturday.



I am playing my first West Coast show later this month. See you in the pit?

For the past couple of months I’ve been working on soundtrack music for a video art piece by my friend and NYC visual artist Pieter Schoolwerth. Other contributors are Nate Young (WOLF EYES) and Soren Roi (RØSENKØPF). The video will be on view at Miguel Abreu gallery starting this Sunday night. If you are in the New York region I highly recommend you check it out in person.

Details can be found on the gallery website: http://miguelabreu.com/

Things are going well in Portland. I even started working on new music (more on that soon).

Also, in case you missed it, I am selling on ebay again – including a bunch of old issues of Maximum Rock N Roll. I will be adding new items weekly for a while.

UPDATE 3.20.15 – I have a bit too much going on at the moment so I am taking a break from eBay for a while. I will post an update once that changes. Thanks.

You can see all my available items here:

When I have time I will be selling things on discogs and Amazon as well.

Thank you. -Jonathan

I’m getting settled in Portland but my synths and items for sale are all in storage. When that changes I will post an update here.

In the meantime I’ve been working on my art. Above is one example of my latest work. You can see more of those collages at: jonathancanady72.tumblr.com (some are obviously NSFW).

Isn’t this old flyer great? That would have been quite a Portland show to see.

Anyhow, the eBay auctions went well (thank you everyone) and now it’s time to get moving.

Once I’m settled in Oregon I will hopefully get back to making music quickly (as well as selling on eBay, Amazon and Discogs again).

I have no clue when I’ll have time to post again but in the meantime, have you looked at my cult movie list?

Take care. -Jonathan
