Sorry about the lack of updates recently. But that’s not to say a lot hasn’t been going on. I’ll be posting a full list of upcoming concerts, art opening and information about two new upcoming albums in the next week or two. In the meantime, Mike Hunter from WPRB in Princeton, NJ was kind enough to post this HD video of a private concert I gave at the World Café Studios at WXPN in Philadelphia in 2010. This was one of the last live “ambient” concerts I gave shortly before starting the synth wave project L’Avenir. Enjoy the concert and more updates to come very soon!

What people are saying about “The Wait”:
– Sean McBride (Martial Canterel)
“A very fine and deep album. Upon first listen one of my favorite albums from last year by John Maus came to mind.”
– The Suicide of Western Culture
“The Wait” from American artist L’Avenir, minimal synth pairs perfectly solemn , reverb-drenched vocals with largely electronic analog sounds. Often heavy synth bass lines combine with soaring string sounds and driving drum -machine rhythms in this cohesive set of songs. While L’Avenir’s love of vintage “wave” music comes through clear as to Influence, the album never reverts to nostalgic for its own sake but rather comes across as a decidedly contemporary spin on the dark electronic sounds by established artists of Decades past . A very strong first offering from the new Barcelona based label Cold Beats Records.”
– Lissette Schoenly (Spatial Relation)
“Cascades of melancholy and nostalgica. More than just Minimal Wave.”
– Dj Norbertx
