Talk to Her

There is always that belief out there that musicians often self-create bad situations in their lives so that they have something to write about. ;) Well, here is one track that actually was written as an apology after a lovers' quarrel :) Oh yeah... [more inside]

J.S. Bach

When the radiant bliss of classical music comes to enter the realm of dream pop ambient downtempo, something serene yet pensive may be the result, as in the case of this track. Initially when we composed this track, there were lyrics and vocals, but then our computer blew and somehow the vocals didn't survive. Today it is an instrumental.

Titry

Since music is a powerful force capable of evoking an endless array of images to one's mind, this represents just the diverse dynamic space, vocal free, to be a canvass for whatever the listener can dream up. This is for dreaming, after all :)

crashing is not safe

I got in a car crash about a month back. No one got hurt but it was still kind of scary (I had my 13 month old in the car and she was screaming and crying) and afterwards, it was really depressing/distressing. It was really hard to get to work and I couldn't go anywhere and then there's the money I had to borrow to fix the car. [more inside]

Bach

This track makes it a lot easier to imagine how the classical work of J.S. Bach could be meshed into a dreampop track, something that is rarely seen or at least, that is rarely pulled off well (The Verve and The Farm come to mind as other successful cases of this happening). [more inside]

Astronomical Summer 2

The pulsing drive of this tune unquestionably has a swaying effect and, taken together with this song's layers and subtleties seems to make all the difference. Sway sway sway!!! [more inside]

Talk to Her

If you were to roll up some element of Brian Eno, Robert Fripp and Bill Nelson, and paint it with a slight shoegaze ethereal hue, this might be what you would get… Enjoy this Ummagma track! [more inside]

The Mission

Space rock is a term that is often over-used for various psychrock tunes, but it is dead on for this track from Sounds of Sputnik. Or space post-rock or even space post-rock shoegaze. Looking forward to your take on that.

Ambiguous Sense of the Future

Post-rock always seems embedded with the sense that something is dire; however, shake it up a bit to get a kind of post-rock indie shoegaze vinaigrette and Sounds of Sputnik is likely what you would come up with. This is Ambiguous Sense of the Future.

Cycles that Surround Us, 2nd Movement

Who *doesn't* love experimental music?! Demo for a piece in which the performers read the music in circles (and sub-circles). [more inside]

My Sister the Giant

I'm doing an album this month, and this is the first thing I've recorded for it. I think the album will be mostly or completely instrumental, but we'll see. [more inside]

404

And now for something completely different... this is a somewhat experimental instrumental track featuring pulsing soft noise, soft organs and a distorted xylophone, fake sitar, and off-key distant "singing."

Smackbillie

I was in Amsterdam in 1995 and found an old Billie Holiday bootleg CD. Years later I found an interesting sample on there and imported it into the totally awesome audio program....SoundEdit16. Stretched it, pulled it, squished it, doubled it and looped it. This is the end result in all of its 16bit glory. I originally released this under the name Skycraft. By "release" I mean I burned 10 copies in 1999 and gave it to Ray at The Quaker Goes Deaf in Chicago and a bunch of friends. 10 Blank CDs cost a lot back then.

Drone - 2005.03.29

Here's one of my earlier experiments in drone music. It's electric guitar, played live through delay, fuzz and volume pedals.

Trees + Herbs Just Got Easier

cloeburner and I used to be in an improv noise rock band called cloeburner. When I listen to this song, I think of a majestic bald eagle, sinking slowly into a pool of lava and contemplating its own mortality. I hope you will, too.
