Digging back into some old ambient/noise/drone ideas. Synth, guitar, and bowed cymbal. [more inside]
Ambient bell arp single take performance phase music
I'm working on a set of songs/sounscapes for a friend's online comic project. This is a spooky ambient piece using some recordings I made of a guy moving chairs around in a cathedral in Vienna, some sleep breathing, some musical saw, and a weird broken African instrument a friend gave me.
Song #10 in Unu Kanto Po Semajno was an attempt to create some soothing ambient music, like blips and bleeps you'd hear on SomaFM's Space Station channel. However, It came out a twisted mutant, as you will discover. Wellpp, keep MeFi weird! Go ahead... press play, close your eyes and relaaaax.....
Should be evocative (of something) in and of itself. Don't know, really. One of those things... [more inside]
Carbon 7. Recorded March 9th 2013, the night comet Pan-Starrs first became visible to the naked eye in the northern hemisphere. [more inside]
An extremely challenging experimental noise-scape with massively overdriven synth loops. [more inside]
Lucid dreaming heartbeat house. Field recordings and textures recorded within the last week here in Seattle. [more inside]
my friend found and hacked a dollar-store musical toy duck...and this piece is made of the awful and fascinating sounds we made with it. [more inside]
This began as an improvised piece involving a Poly Evolver synth, a Memory Man pedal, and an iPhone running Moog Filtatron. Then I decided to bury everything in noise, fuzz and tape flutter until it became nigh-unlistenable. Enjoy!
Some noisy, synth-driven ambience from my new album, Never a chance.
Piano, voice, glitch, noise.
A recording of live synthesis made in Da Vinci park. [more inside]
Some shifting noise and randomness. [more inside]
Spoken word/ambient noise piece stolen from and dedicated to e.e. cummings on this day, the near midpoint between his birthday and deathday.
Something a bit slow, dark, broody and noisy. [more inside]
A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...
High dynamic range and distortion wrapped in a a heartbeat-like 73 BPM.
Something a spacecraft might hear on the edge of the solar system
2 minutes and 30 seconds of crap
In the soundtrack to my life, this song is the last two days. [more inside]
A dark, drone/noise piece that develops slowly
A relaxing drone; noise waveforms are dominant again
Extra dark and ominous; uses mostly noise waveforms instead of sine waves
This ear-piercing ambient piece was made in 2003, part of a release called Ultraviolet. I was listening to a lot of Terre Thaemlitz at the time, particularly Soil.
A few minutes of crazy space noise and strange particle interactions. [more inside]
Endcaps of warbling drone punctuated by bass stabs, and a middle section of high rhythmic complexity [more inside]
An ambient noise / drone piece with a dark mood.
Perhaps my most "complete" song yet. A five-minute ambient / glitch backbeat punctuated by percussion.
More ambient / noise / drone stuff. [more inside]
My second song ever, made in Ableton Live. I figured out how to use the automation controls for better fades in/fades out, and I think it has a cleaner sound overall than my first one. Comments welcome.
My first song; made in Ableton Live 7 LE. It's a drone/ambient noise piece. Comments welcome, but please be gentle. (Warning: high dynamic range, starts out quiet, but gets loud.) [more inside]
Chiptune melodies falling into a mess of ambience, noise and everything in between. [more inside]
Music for unseasonable weather.
My old daily journey in the rain; some twisted ambience.
I'm thinking this will be the outro to my first album, or possibly come right before the final song.
The second in a series of songs i've remastered for a short [50 copy] run of my favorite tracks from 2002-2006. This one is a little more experimental and insomnia-fueled than the last one i posted, but not completely abandoning the previous emphasis on melody and atmosphere. See inside for more.
Whirring, humming, clicking, wheezing dark ambient/glitch, from my new album, Unseen.
Strong on feedback and complex drum patterns in quite the krauty way. Dissolves in a beautiful crystalline feedback ending.
In what distant deeps or skies Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand dare seize the fire?
Dark ambience with strange, swelling synths. Okay, I admit it, I can't even remember recording this track.
A bubbling, stewing morass of evil electric noises
Here's one of my earlier experiments in drone music. It's electric guitar, played live through delay, fuzz and volume pedals.
I love evolving a feeling or a story out of feedback. This uses the free DFX Transverb plug with Ableton Live, where I set up various send channels to feed on and eventually destroy each other.
Is it melodic? Is it percussive? Is it industrial? Is it ambient? It is a mystery! A noise-filled mystery. (For further mysteries, look here.)
An early (circa 1999) experiment with fuzzed out guitars and a super-compressed mix, pushing ambient towards industrial. Psycho-shoegazer?
Drifting across the waves. Some live experimental guitar ambience.
