I was a resident at Bossa Nova Civic Club for like 2 years. Very excited to be headed back in a couple weeks for this.

Thanks to everyone who came to share musical and physical space on the recent Australia dates. What a journey. I just returned to NYC this morning and it all feels like a dream, but I have this so I know it was real! One of my favorite sets from the "Acid Witch of the West" Oz DJ tour. Late afternoon at Pitch Music & Arts in a beautiful location inland on the Australian continent. With some of the tracks form the upcoming Black Meteoric Star "Ghost Frequency" EP I'll be releasing soon peppered in there. This is just recorded on my phone in the booth, originally for personal use only, but since it felt to me as so good a representation of how I am playing at the moment I'm sharing it. And I grew up and came up listening to a lot of shitty room recordings of DJs I liked so if you did too you'll recognize this kinda audio quality. https://soundcloud.com/gavinraynarussom/dj-session-at-pitch-festival-mafeking-australia-march-9-2019

Very excited to be part of Emerge Impact + Music with Nancy Whang as The Ladies of LCD Soundsystem. This looks like it will be quite special. I mean Patrisse Cullors people! I’m very honored to be sharing creative space with someone I respect on such a deep level. The same goes for the rest of the folks involved. It will be great to see you again Big Freedia!

The National Sawdust Hildegard Competition (for which I am one of the mentors) has extended the application deadline to December 7th! See more info below: “The Hildegard Competition is National Sawdust’s premiere competition for emerging female, trans, and nonbinary composers. After a successful inaugural year in the 2017–18 season, the second year of the competition digs deeper into its purpose: Uncovering how gender affects the lens through which music is perceived by providing a platform for composers whose voices are often underrepresented in the conversation. In addition to a $7,000 cash prize and a professional performance and recording with the National Sawdust Ensemble, the winners will receive one-on-one mentorship with the established figures in the field who also serve as judges for the competition: Paola Prestini (National Sawdust’s Co-Founder and Artistic Director), Angélica Negrón, Du Yun, Tania León, and Gavin Rayna Russom.”

I'm very honored to have been one of the final guests for NOISE IN MY HEAD and to present this "Dance Excursions" mix. Thanks Michael for the support and these kind words: "My tiny mind was fractured by her collaborative epic with Delia Gonzales - Days of Mars - in 2006 and I’ve intently followed every chapter of the synthesist/visual artist/dancer’s journey since. This one brings back fond memories of the Toff + Bamboo Musik dancefloors, 3RRR studio hijinx + our 5th anniversary group art show. Thanks for always sharing Rayna!" https://www.noiseinmyhead.com.au/2018/10/231018-w-gavin-rayna-russom/

Tune in on Facebook and Twitter today (Oct. 24). I’ll be part of a live discussion hosted by Billboard Pride, moderated by Pose star Indya Adrianna Moore with a panel of transgender musicians: Me, Jaimie Wilson, Mila Jam and Morgin DuPont. We will discuss the recent New York Times article and the political moves that prompted it. https://www.facebook.com/Billboard/videos/709244622784299

UK/EU Black Meteoric Star heads, there are currently a few copies of both the “3 Love Songs” pink vinyl EP and the “No More White Presidents” cassette at Piccadilly Records. These have previously been pretty hard to get over there so get at ‘em!
