It's an allegro but I don't know what work this particular movement is from.

Dungeon/fantasy/forest synth again. You shouldn't follow the light! [more inside]

January 29

Rabbit's Shop

Here is some Sunday comfysynth for you. I imagine it playing in an RPG shop run by a rabbit that cycles through 2-3 bits of dialogue.

The Very Small Starship Rises into the Clear Sky

If you listen closely the five tones from Close Encounters of the Third Kind are almost in there.

Improvised electric guitar over drum machine

Dear to my Heart

It’s the summer you left home, and you’re thinking about it thirty-ish years later. Thinking of what that summer seemed to promise: a little bit of the shine is still on it, some of it got worn away by vicissitudes and whatnot, and some of it did what it ought to and got used up making a life for yourself.

This is one of my partner's songs, on which I played some of the instruments. It's full of wordplay. She recently uploaded her demo album, Nothing New, to Bandcamp. She's a smart and witty lyricist and a great guitarist (and ukulelist). And she plays reed instruments, which are a complete mystery to me.

never alone

brash, downbeat electro. one part melancholy, two parts wibbly wobbly bass

January 16

phobos anomaly

some experimental noodling with virtual drums and discordant synths [more inside]

January 15


"That One Last Rose" is an original, traditional honky-tonk country song, in the style of Buck Owens, Ray Price, Dwight Yoakam. Playing on it (and on the album it comes from, Last Rose) are some incredible, truly legendary musicians. Byron Berline, Dan Dugmore, and, on other songs on the album, Jason Carter, and Kristin Scott Benson. See my website for more information. [more inside]

Split the Daylight

I get no sunlight at all in the winter, at my job, so the day when 5pm includes ANY sunlight at all is a big day for me.

Instrumental score about discovery, evaluation, and conflict. [more inside]

December 29

Action Procedural

While the punchy percussion and funky synth imply action, the final chord in this short instrumental evokes the final shot of the theme song for a procedural drama. If you've got an action procedural series missing a theme song, I may have found it over here. [more inside]

December 27

Small Town

December's release from Sredni Vashtar, staying with the slow, epic, moody sound for the time being.

optimistic down-tempo instrumental hip hop beats and synth-strings [more inside]

December 23


At the beginning of 2019, one of my then-bands Buzzie began to record an album with Robert Harrison of Cotton Mather in the production chair. [more inside]

Checking In

Third in my series of sequencer experiments - here two voices are sharing some notes and trading off singing to each other. [more inside]

yr alban

a bit of an experiment. old. a series of mostly-drumless electronic vignettes.

December 20

Distant Transmission

A short instrumental. A dream-like reverb envelops an evocative melody and its accompanying synthy chords. [more inside]


Mild intensity (?) intro-ish piece. [more inside]

Measure Twice

More sequencer experimentation - playing with changing the note assignment and loop points on a longer sequence. [more inside]

Unsolvable Mysteries

A moody instrumental theme song.

December 19


optimistic disposable electo-ditty [more inside]

December 18

Exactly How It Appeared

It was a mind working against me. [more inside]
