Shining Tor at Twilight

Broke my own rule and drenched this one in effects and keys. Very New Age. Not sure I approve of it.

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]

Another Ambient Office Project, this one involving a custom 4-voice sequencer that involves the generation of melodies and then handing them off between each voice, in and out of sync to produce polyrhythms. [more inside]

Signal Tower

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]

Brittle Hope

Made this somewhat experimental ambient-ish piece last night, feeling a tiny bit of hope about the world. It's based on slowed-down samples of a hang-drum, with a keyboard part doing most of the rest. [more inside]

Wintry Mix

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]
