just a beat :)
One of my many attempts at a decent song. Going in a bit of an ambient direction.
One of my many attempts at creating something listenable and interesting! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think?
This is the second of two demo's I made to consolidate my ideas about an album that I am working on for the Clinical Archives netlabel. The piece is fully improvised. I am recording two albums for Clinical Archives, the first is to be released…read more

This time I tried something else. It's definitely more jazzy than anything before. I think its a direction in which I'd like to keep going. I hope you like it!
A second of a series of weekly improvisations. I didn't use any effects this time, it's just the guitar. I hope you like it! Please download this track at bandcamp for just $1! :) http://maxsipowicz.bandcamp.com/track/improv-ii
A short improv piece. I'm starting a new project, where I will post at least one improv video/recording online each week, and at the end of each month collate them into an album. This is the first one. Since July is almost over, I figure I…read more

The last track that I'm going to upload for a while. I will be re-recording a few songs to release a LP under my own name. Hopefully it'll be good :) This one is another exploration using loops and delays. I hope you like it!
I had a bit of a dry spell with writing new music but today I have decided to break it. This is loosely based on another song of mine, titled Swell. I hope you enjoy this.
I wanted to see what I could do to the guitar to make it sound as a guitar as little as possible. I think its a very interesting experiment in sound. I hope you like it. If you wish to download it, please use this site: http://maxsipowicz.bandcamp…
Just playing around with my looper again. You can probably tell I love that thing. I wanted to build up the tension and the harmony using overlapping layers of notes with basically the same rhythm.. so that the whole piece builds up and up and…
I felt like some improv. Hope you like it.
Another piece using my looper. This time it's highly improvised. The main rhythm is looped, but the rest is improvised and going through a delay pedal to create some abstract and beautiful sounds.
Playing around with loops a bit more. I like it, although I feel that perhaps its a bit cluttered at time? Please let me know what you think. To answer some of the questions I got on the last track: The looper I use is a Digitech DL-8 Hardwire…read more
This is my live set from the Noise Bar in Melbourne that I played on the 24th of April. I learned a lot from that show, as it was my first solo performance. I hope you guys like it. The set was: - No 3 from 3 Pieces on Colour and Texture…
This is the first tune I wrote using an actual loop pedal. I really like the rawness of its form. The sound is sharp, it kind of attacks your ear.. but then after it loops around a few times, it calms down and sinks in.. I expect that there will…read more
I finally got around to finishing the final track on my ep. This is my debut release one could say :) I hope you enjoy it :)
I'm very proud of this one, Especially the middle section where the melody drastically changes. Yes, I know this is very short.. But this one, the 2 preceding it and the next few piano pieces, I use to learn how to compose for piano. After that…read more
My second attempt at writing a piece for solo piano. Quite obviously the inspiration were Philip Glass Steve Reich and Terry Riley. I hope you like it.
Its my first attempt at writing a piece for piano. I think this would probably best be played by two players.. if I ever write out the piece on paper, it might have to be so. I would value any of your comments greatly, as I greatly want to improve…
My girlfriend came to the music store with me yesterday to get my new delay pedal and she patiently waited while i checked it out.. so this is dedicated to her. Musically, I tried to create a rhythm and texture using only natural harmonics…read more
I tried to utilize the swelling of sound that can be created with a guitar to re-create the atmosphere around me (its been rainy all day, with some thunder in the background). This piece is semi improvisational, in that none of it was planned…read more
One of a series of 4 pieces exploring the possibilities of creating texture and colour in music.

Just a short piece of music I made to de-stress myself while working on the other tracks for my upcoming ep :)
This track hasnt started off sounding anything like this. I had a drum beat in my head, so I keyed it into my laptop, then edited it around and it ended up like this. then i recorded everything, and just as i was about to save it.. EVERYTHING…read more
Its a song that was inspired by a dream I had. In fact.. it was the soundtrack to the dream. The ending is purposely left with a feeling of being not finished, as I can't remember how the dream ended. I hope you all like it :)
Frustrated with how slow my solo acoustic/vocal songs are going, I decided to spend the weekend making something chilled out, just to relax myself and to let people know I haven't died. Its a short instrumental track. I call this minimalist electronica…read more
