40 Hours - the new LP by Tristan Welch is a collection of ambient guitar meditations based on the 40 hour work week. Each piece is titled according to the standard work week (M-F) with some overtime added on. The flow of the record is a guided meditation of the working class struggle.

In recent performances leading up to the release Tristan has been seen in his usual suit and tie - holding up protest signs, inspired by anarchist graffiti, displaying the messages of “Abolish Work” and “Fire Your Boss”. These themes correlate with the sound of his new record - it as raw as only somebody working overtime could produce. He hopes to spread a message that he believes that through the power of our labor we can create the world we want to see.

Opening the evening will be a set by Cloud Dweller - the ambient music project from Glenn Nelson (Endangered Species Tapes / Two Years On Welfare) from Allentown, PA. The latest release "Winchester Forest" combines field recordings and hazey synthesizer to create ambient works.

Winchester Forest refers to an unprotected wooded area in South Whitehall, Pennsylvania, where the Jaindl Land Development Company has started to build a 55+ community. These ambient works mourn the loss of natural areas to the ever increasing demand for developed spaces.
