Renaissance music on synthesizer. I think Wendy Carlos would be offended if I called this an homage. [more inside]

A Five-Cornered Square

Another noodl-ey instrumental - the ingredients of this one are a guitar driving a synthesizer and a multiFX over a bed of soft-synths and drum emulator(s).

Cloud Ships

A mid-tempo piece, built around the opening drum riff. Carbon 7 is an improvisational jazz/space/rock trio that just makes it up on the spot. [more inside]

Shadow Chamber

Carbon 7 again, making it up as we go, per usual. This one seemed to come from a slightly dark and empty space. [more inside]

Giovanni Battista Cybo

Meet the inappropriately-named Pope Innocent VIII. Witch hunter. Innovator in the field of immolation. Simonist. Slave regifter. And don't forget about his army of bastard children placed the Vatican on the brink of financial ruin. [more inside]

Once Hardly Known

What happens when Farfisas, mellotrons, synthesizers, and the muddled sounds of a party get to play in the same room. A 60/40 combination of warm bendy melodies and sharp electronic determinism.

Syncopia

Tension-laden synth piece with analog elements. Expect ticking time-bombs, paranoid running at night, and an unseen enemy catching up with you.

Bloom

This is a short IDM-esque style electronic piece written in the fall of 2008. I was largely inspired by the idea of Klangfarben melodie, and tried to incorporate a lot of tone colors in the piece, especially by experimenting with modulating the LFO rates of the synthesizers to different degrees to create many different "colors" of the same basic sound [more inside]

The Bothered Son and the Phony Ghost

An epic exploration into the applications of group vocals, plinky synthesizers, and personal religious doubt.

Quantum Mechanics

In the early 1990s I had a spare bedroom full of MIDI equipment (including a 16-channel mixer and various effect units) and I liked to noodle around with it. This is the only complete piece I ever produced. It's an instrumental strongly influenced by the likes of Tangerine Dream, the Alan Parsons Project, and Synergy.

Algorithmic

Written in 1992 (at age 14), for an after-school music theory class, using an iterative algorithm (on paper). Came out far too long - I should have exercised artistic license over the math a bit more. I really like the last twenty seconds, though.

Woman Reads A Beauty Magazine

Live improvisation on a Korg MS2000 with no editing, outboard effects, mixing, etc. Be warned: it's more than a little frightening.
