my friend found and hacked a dollar-store musical toy duck...and this piece is made of the awful and fascinating sounds we made with it. [more inside]
Mulp and I worked on this yesterday. He played bass, synth, guitar + vocals. I did the programming, mixing + vocals. It's a rough mix, but a fun start to a new project. It features mostly instruments modded or repaired by me incidentally. [more inside]
More noisy electro/break bitmuxing. (beta mix)
So there was this awesome ask.MeFi post, "For Grigori I sold goat" -- A Christmas Mystery. [more inside]
This began as an improvised piece involving a Poly Evolver synth, a Memory Man pedal, and an iPhone running Moog Filtatron. Then I decided to bury everything in noise, fuzz and tape flutter until it became nigh-unlistenable. Enjoy!
an improvisation on my smart phone, recorded in the breakroom during my lunch break at work [more inside]
An improvisation on an instrument programmed using the csound DSL for audio synthesis, running in real time on a nokia n900 smart phone. [more inside]
Welcome to Teen Island (Season One). We here at MTV started this reality show with the best of intentions. But things have gone horribly, horribly wrong. [more inside]
Noise and feedback. Swirling, swirling, swirling! [more inside]
Cruising down the LA river from Griffith Park to East Side while utterly stoned on a sunny afternoon on a low key adventure past huge graffiti, booming lowriders, homeless camps and a surprising amount of nature.
Some noisy, synth-driven ambience from my new album, Never a chance.
In the spirit of David Tudor's Rainforest pieces, but the wrong animal is singing. [more inside]
Remix/remaster of "this is what it sounds like when you shrink a lowrider down and go cruising around for circuits to listen to on in a motherboard and then there's an earthquake" for better bass and mixdown. [more inside]

Piano, voice, glitch, noise.
Me and MeFi's own Minus215Cee. I play the squishy trumpet and scratchy electronics toward the right, he plays the sharp sax toward the left. [more inside]
A new synth program still in progress at the time. I hit 'record' only to consider various knob twiddlings, instead it turned out to be a complete solo. [more inside]
A recording of live synthesis made in Da Vinci park. [more inside]
A performance with a synth made using the supercollider programming language [more inside]
George Rekers, one of the founders of Focus on the Family, needs love and self acceptance. This love song is made with his own words, as recorded by a journalist shortly after he was seen with an escort at an airport (along with some simple synthesizers). [more inside]
A short song with some talking. Two tracks of ukulele, a drum loop, one canned organ blast, distortion. It's 8 degrees outside and the song reflects that. Recorded by The Grandma Sylvias, January 2010.
Some shifting noise and randomness. [more inside]
Just some music I just made just now. [more inside]
HTEETH remix of Carpet of Sexy vaguely referencing the MC5 [more inside]
a song by my band, fm campers. don't really know where this falls, genre-wise... electronic rock noise-pop? [more inside]
Spoken word/ambient noise piece stolen from and dedicated to e.e. cummings on this day, the near midpoint between his birthday and deathday.
There's noise in the chain. [more inside]
A "disgruntled" version of a song I've been playing with for a while. Wrote the 'actual' song, but ended up preferring this nasty explosion of multi-tracked vocal and noise to the acoustic version.
Distorted dance music, like Black Dice but maybe slightly less abrasive. [more inside]
Something a bit slow, dark, broody and noisy. [more inside]
Early loop-based experiment. [more inside]
Recorded in 2003 by my band, struction. Noisy, loud, fast. [more inside]
A track from my defunct band, Struction. Fast and loud. [more inside]
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.
Albert Ayler wrote music about ghosts, witches, devils, demons, and angels. The levels on this range widely. If you use a compressor, you get a declawed piece, but not the one I wrote. [more inside]
A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...
A loud composition, in 7/4 time, 120 BPM. [more inside]
High dynamic range and distortion wrapped in a a heartbeat-like 73 BPM.
Another old one. It's a little rough, but enjoyable. Contains guitar, didgeridoo, part of some commercial, and small flammable animals. Bits were inspired by bagpipes and Albert Ayler.
Something a spacecraft might hear on the edge of the solar system
Remix of a friends' band recording (and some side project done with me) from sometime around 2001-2002. I'm certainly in the mood for a party (same era) There was also an intro using bits of this mix, but I think it's only on some ancient mini-DV tape for now..
WARNING: High pitched feedback. Sorry about your ears to everyone streaming the RSS. [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
A relaxing drone; noise waveforms are dominant again
Something blossoms out of something else, it would be ugly on its own, but coming from something so putrid it is sublime. [more inside]
Extra dark and ominous; uses mostly noise waveforms instead of sine waves
