New Music – “Tri” A three part invention of sorts

I just posted a new ambient, electronic piece that was recorded this week. It is three parts that are gradually manipulated in various ways over the course of the piece. I hope you like it!

New Music – “Seens”

I released new music today. For the past few months I’ve been in a deep dive into the world of sound design and synthesis. It’s pretty overwhelming but I thought I would share a song I made a few days ago while learning some new equipment.

This one took a cinematic turn as I was improvising over the original chord progression. I hope you enjoy!

Live Performance and New Links for Sleeping New Music

Just wanted to give a quick heads up that I’m playing tonight… Monday, 2/25 at the amazing Hotel Cafe as part of a long-running songwriter night. The room is legendary and it’s an honor to play there. I go on at 9:30 for a short set on the second stage – the night is called Monday Monday. I’ll be singing and playing some new stuff.

I’m excited to share a new record that I’ve really enjoyed working on. The title pretty much sums it up… It’s a record about the plight of sleeping in the 21st century. So if you’re reading this in a different century, you probably won’t get it.

“a bac” – New Music & Video

One of my more recent projects has been creating a suite of electronic music pieces that are meant to be music to sleep or relax to. I’ve been enjoying the process so much because it forces a unique approach to writing and recording.

This song “a bac” is one that I wrote a while back for a project called Spirit Tuck. This version is a reworking of the song. For this recording I recorded a lot of strange sounds from my voice, scissors, a metal-framed chair and some field recordings from outside my window.

Here is the video and song…
