brash, downbeat electro. one part melancholy, two parts wibbly wobbly bass
some experimental noodling with virtual drums and discordant synths [more inside]
more scattershot electro. a deliberate "track 1". [more inside]
optimistic down-tempo instrumental hip hop beats and synth-strings [more inside]
a bit of an experiment. old. a series of mostly-drumless electronic vignettes.
optimistic disposable electo-ditty [more inside]
A quick sketch to start off a series of 3 songs based around some creative sequencing techniques. [more inside]

Ambient Office returns with another modular jam. Harmonic rhythms with some melodies over the top. [more inside]
Built in the excellent 1BitDragon sequencer, with a few extra bits added in a DAW. Part of my JPL side project.
Ambient Office project that features some just intonation intervals and granular noise. [more inside]
I heard a vocal sample and imagined three little frogs were singing it and so I had a little fun. [more inside]
Another AO jam - this time using a cellular algorithm to derive a melody and a few drum triggers that I mess with and layer under some drones. [more inside]
#3 song for FAWM 2022. Tip of the hat to Exiting The Vampire Castle for inspiring the title. This one's about cancellation, and the toxicity of the queer community. Thankfully for all of us, neither of those things exist. [more inside]
This is a piece that I recorded by triple-tracking myself playing an FM synthesis patch (the "twist" being that it has an extra cosine applied to the modulated signal) written in Pure Data. [more inside]
A walk through the depths of feedback noise [more inside]
I took the Linn drum set in Live, slowed the samples down and played with it; vaporwave came out. I followed that to a conclusion of sorts. [more inside]
Orca jam with an OP-Z. [more inside]
Playing with feedback loops with a slowly shifting pattern. [more inside]
Semi-ambient modern synth pad instrumental with minimalist electronic bass, reversed electric guitar, and some pretty and deliberate vinyl crackle-ish soft static noise and a gentle mix of treated samples. Maybe sort of cinematic? [more inside]
The last of us

I'm F-ing Around with a still-new-to-me rig And Finding Out about what I can get out of it. Textures and glitchy stuff like I've done here before. [more inside]
A ghostly fox materializes ahead on the forest path and "hmm"s at you. "Hmm? Wait, how are you talking?" "A fox appears out of nowhere and your first question is how it talks? Humans..." "Look, it's my first time outside the bounds of reality." "You have a lot to learn. Follow me."
In 2017, I posted this piece (using the Barbie voice samples from this post. At the time, it capped out at around five minutes due to a limitation in the Sonic-Pi, the software I was using. I've now learned enough SuperCollider to be dangerous and as a result have worked around those limitations, producing a full hour-long piece containing all of the names. This is not that piece. It is a shorter version (a Radio Edit, as it were) that doesn't exceed this site's file size limits. [more inside]
My old computer choked on even basic things, and that killed my interest in making music. This is a lot more fun when I can throw things around without worrying about it hanging for 30-300 seconds.
A doomy electronic track. Think John Carpenter and Drive Like Jehu. 5 tracks of the Jupiter-X and a searing guitar. Heading into a weekend of violence on Capitol Hill in Seattle, feeling an impending sense of unease and resigned confirmation of the conflict to come. A diary entry, a stake in the moment of time. Hoping that predictions are wrong, pouring out my stubborn vulnerability that all my fears are for naught.
Track 2 from my new release Carefully Introducing Problems. Drone/dark ambient/spooky synth/a touch of Berlin School. 100% of proceeds from the album will be donated to Reclaim the Block and Afrorack. Today, June 5, it is #bandcampfriday and I will be personally matching donations. [more inside]
Slow dance to the outbursts of generative electronic folderol. [more inside]
An entry in the April/May MeFiMusicChallenge, inspired by the pandemic. Instrumental, chill track. [more inside]
This is my synth-based anthem cover of the song by singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt. This version is an earlier draft from 2018, mostly from a whirlwind month when I was trying to get as much done before my trial of Ableton Live ended. Me on vocals, synth/loops. Many thanks to not_on_display for the arrangement idea and feedback through multiple iterations. Basically I made this to help myself feel better, and I figure it's something I could share especially now. [more inside]
Instrumental electronic thingy continued. [more inside]
Acid/Techno/Chillout/Ambient electronic music in the style of Chemical Brothers and Kruder and Dorfmeuster DJ Kicks! era [more inside]
A short ride on some eccentric polyrhythms with some soft-synths and a processed vocalization. [more inside]
An ambient/drone piece from my newly released album Float (pay-what-you-want on Bandcamp). I'm breaking a habit of expressing anxiety and foreboding through my music, and aiming to spread some tranquility and wonder instead. [more inside]
Also electronics + piano. A bit more pianistic and melodic; more "pretty" than "driven."
Electronics + Piano. Lots of harmonic and rhythmic drive.
A soundtrack-y, texture-y work-in-progress experiment with generative features in Reason.
