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]
An eight-minute instrumental piece. I made a video for it using public domain film from archive.org and put the song in the public domain (non-commercial use with attribution). [more inside]

Second track from the album/playlist I am working on. [more inside]
Morning is the first of four pieces from a release that I did earlier this year called "Within the Darkness." Quiet, atmospheric textures. I woke up one morning and this fellow on YouTube named MetalSeer had put up this really nice video from Valve's Source Filmmaker. [more inside]
Culted was conceived after watching a special on Mass Murderers. An industrial sound with cinematic undertones and a touch of electronica. [more inside]
Easy, nostalgic, cinematic electronica. The challenging part was getting the robots to sing - not too mechanically, but not too uncannily either.
A very New York-bred outlook at old-time Cuban music, recorded entirely with .. violas! This was my attempt to create asymmetrical but memorable melodies, clear textures crammed with material, and experiment with multitrack viola as a concept, an ensemble. The sound of the classic Cuban bands had all that - except the violas, that is. This track appears on my newly released CD, the VJOLA: WORLD ON FOUR STRINGS
From the same record as "First Steps into Metropolis". More downtempo than pure cinema this time, but I seem unable to shake the latter.
The opening song on a soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist. I've only had the balls to show my friends so far, so I figured I'd let you guys listen. Please don't be too brutal. (Unlike my first HiFi post, this isn't a sampling experiment.)
Music for your next heist.
A song recorded with composer's own girly operatic vocal loops and swelling orchestra—in the vein of Steve Reich and Philip Glass
