It's a snow day here in Wisconsin and that means that the kid and I are recording. This one is 5 tracks of kid vocals -- sort of a nonverbal impressionistic vibe this time -- with some canned drums and synth. And some crying at the end.
Some shifting noise and randomness. [more inside]
I'm doing an album this month, and this is the first thing I've recorded for it. I think the album will be mostly or completely instrumental, but we'll see. [more inside]
Existentialist Hip-hop. [more inside]
A few of you wanted to know when my band Voodoo Economics's next album came out. Welp, it's out. It's called 'Nighttime Sabbaticals'. Here's a track from it. [more inside]
Gritty Low-Fi Hip-Hop beat with freestyle. [more inside]
More experimental/Low-fi hip-hop. When I say low-fi, I mean it this time. [more inside]
Experimental/Low-Fi, Un-ironic Nerdcore Hip-Hop [more inside]
A late-night drone piece, composed from the manipulation of a single sample. [more inside]
Mine is the last voice you will ever hear.
Continuing with my beat-oriented theme of late. Autechre-like, but they're still 1,000 times better than I am. This one's noisy and glitchy, just the way I like it.
A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...
There's a way in at the back. It sounds better inside.
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
Experimental monotony-rock alert. Listen at own risk. [more inside]
A mellow, trippy piece with a discordant edge. File under "dark ambient for stoners."
A minimal microtonal piece in 5/4. [more inside]
An entry to the amnesty challenge, trying out the "wrong" challenge. [more inside]
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
WARNING (OR PROMISE): Highly abstract and very, very long. [more inside]
A relaxing drone; noise waveforms are dominant again
The second effort for this year's RPM Challenge from my experimental, noisy super-happy-fun project, "The Very Best of Spaz." Like its ocean dwelling namesake, this Immortal Jellyfish always manages to revert to its juvenile form. [more inside]
Extra dark and ominous; uses mostly noise waveforms instead of sine waves
Exceptionally resonant bass channel with two layers of percussion on top [more inside]

Dark ambient work with an industrial undertone and extreme use of reverb [more inside]
Dark and moody. Lots of reverb. This is my fourth generative piece.
Free Jazz. Five trumpets, five drums. [more inside]
A 24 hour noise number. Not for the faint of heart. [more inside]
Six layers of sound, created completely from scratch in the Operator soft synth, sent through a filter delayed return track
Second generative piece; bassy pad and six layers of percussion
This is a short IDM-esque style electronic piece written in the fall of 2008. I was largely inspired by the idea of Klangfarben melodie, and tried to incorporate a lot of tone colors in the piece, especially by experimenting with modulating the LFO rates of the synthesizers to different degrees to create many different "colors" of the same basic sound [more inside]
Endcaps of warbling drone punctuated by bass stabs, and a middle section of high rhythmic complexity [more inside]
"This is a story of a man who sat at home all day and did absolutely nothing." Our improv group is at it again, this time adding a DS-10 and an old electronic organ's rhythmic presets into the mix. 22 minutes in length.

This is the center piece in a 5-song ep length project I finally got around to "releasing". (Translation: I uploaded it to my website and posted a myspace bulletin. Strange times we live in.) [more inside]
An improv ensemble decides to start improvising as a pizza order is placed. We will not stop until that pizza is delivered. Very experimental and 41 minutes long. [more inside]
Are you tired of bailing out major corporations that got into trouble because they were too busy screwing over the likes of you to properly run their numbers? I thought gravity was supposed to prevent things from trickling up??? [more inside]
This comes from the archives (dating back to 1999 or thereabouts), the heavily edited highlights of a long and extremely abstract jam. I produced it and I'm pretty sure I blew into some kind of flute like instrument at some point or other. Apparently there's versions of it floating around out there credited to both LSD49 and Slow Fallout.
Some experimental ambient textures and layering. Contains samples from Hulk Hogan & The Wrestling Boot Band, Unique Ason, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Björk, Four Tet, Morgan Freeman, and Busy P. Also some sampling of dirty audio jacks. Title from Fadhil al-Azzawi (Iraqi Poetry Today).
And now for something completely different... this is a somewhat experimental instrumental track featuring pulsing soft noise, soft organs and a distorted xylophone, fake sitar, and off-key distant "singing."
pioneer to the falls / the days of wine and booze / heavy
A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]
