Some Easter Monday techno [more inside]
"Just watch me": noisy & dubby
En roulant ma boule roulant / En roulant ma boule
A simple version of a cool, brooding electronic jam. Underlying ambient riff accentuated with minor chord synth jabs alternating in EQ/phaser/flanger/stereo effect layers.
An electronica track (possibly describable as “techno”) I created in one day for the 20th Project. It starts with a kick/hi-hat (and later a snare) as well as synth bass and lead lines; the track itself is in 7/4 time. [more inside]
The second edit of my first techno song i made in 2009
A dilettante's first blush at Ableton Live and a MicrKORG [more inside]
First recorded song in quite a while. Guitar, and then late night thank-god-I-can-wear-headphones-and-make-music-with-housemates-sleeping keyboard/etc.
A rough work in progress. 134 BPM slinky melodic techno. [more inside]
Swingy, chordy techno-soul with a strutty bassline. Music for space station hallways. [more inside]
Bouncy Tech House piece [more inside]
Just a lazy Sunday sketch of a track. Melodic techno. [more inside]

Lucid dreaming heartbeat house. Field recordings and textures recorded within the last week here in Seattle. [more inside]
A much better mix/edit of this.
A fist-pumping dance track I recorded tonight. Performed live with my Monomachine and Blofeld.
Meat Beat Manifesto-like breaks with cheesy porn samples. May not be safe for work.
More noisy electro/break bitmuxing. (beta mix)
A redo of this in a new direction.
A song written for a boring snowy day. Ambient/slow-hop/dreamscape techno at it's most. After all, who hasn't lost almost an entire day playing in FruityLoops, right?
Cruising down the LA river from Griffith Park to East Side while utterly stoned on a sunny afternoon on a low key adventure past huge graffiti, booming lowriders, homeless camps and a surprising amount of nature.
a little piano piece that I recorded in the lull before going out on a Friday
Remix/remaster of "this is what it sounds like when you shrink a lowrider down and go cruising around for circuits to listen to on in a motherboard and then there's an earthquake" for better bass and mixdown. [more inside]

A nearly-finished track. Looking for suggestions. I feel like I should add a field recording of some kind, but I'm not sure what kind. I'm feeling a little bit of speech. [more inside]
an infectious, pounding cover of the Paul Simon classic.
Well, it's different. [more inside]
An electronic dance song I made the other day, but now with more of the flavor of today. [more inside]
6 categories of word smithing, one book = bible, and a thesaurus is the brief version! Enjoy... [more inside]
Distorted dance music, like Black Dice but maybe slightly less abrasive. [more inside]
A Boards of Canada-esque song that I made the day that Michael died. [more inside]
