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.
No rhyme, no reason, just a colony of mournful machines piping their clangorous, grinding sonorisms at each other across an barren electronic landscape. This will also be some of the source material that I will process later into something…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
