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]
Part of a "music-each-day-for-a-year" project I'm doing. The bell sounds are all kitchen items (wineglasses, pizza cutters); my friends Ben Opie, Ben Harris and Dave Bernabo add some contrabass clarinet, violin, piano and oscillators, sampled from Ben Opie's CD release show. [more inside]
My first real ambient work. It comes from a pair of life changing conversations with two dear friends. [more inside]
A lullaby for my friends who had their first child on Christmas. Done in NanoStudio on the iPad.
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!
A little experiment in the ambient/minimalist Steve Reich/Mike Oldfield vein. [more inside]

This is an environmental sound recording: rush hour commuters descend a staircase at Tokyo's Akihabara Station. You'll hear the dopey little melody (twice in a row) that they play for every train that pulls in, the clatter of feet as commuters rush down the stairs, the ambient bird call recordings they play in the station, and the pre-recorded announcements. Video here, which is the third clip so far at my new YouTube channel, HiddenTokyo
On an old hard drive, I've recently uncovered a directory of sounds I created. I thought I'd share this one. It's an ambient piece.

chill, metropolitan 80s chic. free download on soundcloud.
I grew up when there were only three or four TV channels, no internet. Now people want to be micro-celebrities, and want their privacy to boot. [more inside]

just screwing around, really [more inside]
Some noisy, synth-driven ambience from my new album, Never a chance.
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]
Piano, voice, glitch, noise.
...or the same eight chords... [more inside]
A recording of live synthesis made in Da Vinci park. [more inside]
Summertime gives me a lot of time to write music. Especially outside. This track samples "Do While" by Oval. I wanted to turn an ambient track into something a bit more danceable. Any thoughts?
An ambient song with some loops and drums and stuff. The first thing I've written in months.
An ambient electronic track, in perhaps an early Warp Records vein. Made using Ableton Live and various plugins (Absynth and Massive, among them).

a minimal and sombre thing. sounds made by software and double bass. [more inside]
this is some noodling on a lap steel (i'm a double bassist by trade), stuck through a delay and processed a bit afterwards. it's too long (i would recommend doing your own fadeout at around 2.40), but it's sort of pretty.
Just a little rhythmic experiment, not actually gamelan but reminiscent.
Some shifting noise and randomness. [more inside]
