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:

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: (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

I am relocating to Portland, Oregon in early October. In order for an easier move and to help with expenses I am selling many weird and wonderful things on eBay this week.

Click here to see all current auctions.

I will be adding more tonight and possibly this Thursday. I recommend you check back this weekend as everything will ending on Sunday the 28th.

Thank you. -Jonathan

Last Thursday I attended an excellent house show featuring Hive Mind, Redrot, Shredded Nerve, Scant, Pleasure Island and Ventriloquist. Unfortunately lighting / space problems and available memory didn’t allow me to shoot all the bands but here’s what I got…

I’m a little late posting this but DEATHPILE’s “Final Confession” gatefold double LP is now shipping from Chrome Peeler Records – scroll down. In case you have your copy and are a little confused – yes, it’s 45 RPM (but sounds cool on 33 too – ha ha).

In other news, LA “noise rap” band CLIPPING have used a sample from DEATHPILE’s “G.R.” album for their song “Body and Blood.” This was done with my permission. While I’m not really a fan of the genre I think they’ve done a fantastic job AND they made an excellent video (this is very NSFW) you can see here.

You can buy the album over here at Sub Pop.

Thanks. -Jonathan

I’m getting there. I have added about, Deathpile, design and links pages (click on the buttons on the top of this page).

If you have any requests or suggestions for stuff to include on this page just send me an email.

Thanks. -Jonathan

I am in the process of moving all relevant info from the old malsonus website over to this new location.

In the meantime don’t forget there’s lots of my work to stream or download cheap over at

And of course DEATHPILE’s “G.R.” vinyl is still available for sale over at Tesco.

If you have any questions feel free to email me here.

Thank you. -Jonathan Canady
