Carbon 7 is an improvisational/experimental trio that creates spontaneous music at the moment it's recorded. I left a tad of dialog at the beginning, so you could here our "process." Dennis gives Ron a hard time about choosing a key, then I call out C# & start it off. Clocks in at a whopping 26.5 minutes, but it evolves slowly the entire way. [more inside]

A long one-take improvisitation played live with Ableton echo and a vocal beat loop I recorded that I knob-twiddled while I played.

Another improv track riffing off of the previous Bearded Dragon. This was the last time the Slimelords/the Next ever played together. We broke up shortly after some pictures of us were taken together that same night.
Improvised sludge-rock by three people who'd never played together before. Stereo-action guitar pyrotechnics by nylon.
Members of the public were invited to bring a non-musical object to a drop-in recording session. We recorded them making a noise with their thing ('things' included carrots, an umbrella, false teeth, keys, photoflash, adding machine, pints of beer), and then the next day I did an improvised gig using only the collected sounds as source material. This is an excerpt from the gig.
