Launch Party – Tektite Records – my own records label

Come celebrate two new solo releases (“STEEL” and “BIRDS”) out now on my new label “TEKTITE RECORDS“!!!  Check out!

What is Tektite:

Tektites (from Greek te?t?? tektos, molten) are natural glass rocks up to a few centimeters in size, which most scientists argue were formed by the impact of large meteorites on Earth’s surface. Tektites are typically black or olive-green, and their shape varies from rounded to irregular.

Tektites are among the “driest” rocks, with an average water content of 0.005%. This is very unusual, as most if not all of the craters where tektites may have formed were underwater before impact. Also, partially melted zircons have been discovered inside a handful of tektites. This, along with the water content, suggests that the tektites were formed under phenomenal temperature and pressure not normally found on the surface of the Earth.

Terrestrial impact theory

The terrestrial-impact theory states that a meteorite impact melts material from the Earth’s surface and catapults it up to several hundred kilometers away from the impact site, which means that it must have travelled through space (thus explaining the dryness).
