This is a recording of the first time I have played Ludivico Einaudi's "I Due Fuimi" all the way through. It includes numerous errors & slight pauses but I managed to keep going and finish it and after MANY months of practice that feels…read more

Edward Lear. Ring Modulation. No, I don't know why either.

It's been so long since I've made any music I've kind of forgotten how. I was just noodling about and thought I had a sound I liked so I bounced it out quite quickly. This one is all made with Reaktor and Boscomac's Air Piano ensemble, plus…read more

A violin sample used as an impulse response for a convolution reverb to which various filtered noise is fed. Just playing with the technique.

Some old cylinder-days orchestral sounds resampled, chopped, and effected. Put me in mind of clowns.

I'm learning to play piano and my teacher has given me 'Old Joe Clarkes Boogie' to play. For 2 weeks it has kicked my ass. But I'm getting to grips with it now and this is my revenge! The musical parts were recording using my Kurzweil SP3X…read more

Honestly I have no idea where this came from or how. I was messing with Omnisphere patches and came across a lovely, flutey, breathy sound that put me in mind of the scenes inside the monolith at the end of 2001. I setup a Rytme pattern to…read more

This is my first run through the 7th Goldberg variation. It's been about a month since I started practicing it. This is the first time I "made it"—meaning, it's a bit fumbling and pushes and pulls, but hey, I hit all the notes! I've played…read more

Just what I needed. I really like that this was recorded with the room sound, hit the spot.

This is a track I've been working on for quite a while so I am glad to finally have it out of my head. I have a kind of love/hate relationship with time and its humble functionary, the clock. Ticking, in particular, is something I am ambivalent…read more

Extraordinary mix/soundfield on this. Sounded like the clocks were external to my headphones, several feet away.

A piece of experimental whimsy. I took a nice piano loop from the Logic library and utterly destroyed it with The Finger. What's interesting about this to me is that I was not playing the MIDI driving The Finger but using Elysium to do so. Here…read more

Interesting mix of sounds. Cool!
