As The Flow Cries

Monday, December 26th, 2016

Earlier this month (December, 2016) I recorded an album, mostly in a remote cabin in Brown County, Indiana. It centers around lap steel guitar, a new instrument for me, as well as including a bunch of synthesis and field recordings. Here it is on Bandcamp (pay what you want/if you want):

It’s mostly beautiful ambient stuff, although there are a few somewhat surprising, heavier moments as well. I’ve got several other albums to release by the end of the year (including another one you’ll find if you click around on my Bandcamp page), so stay tuned for additional musical updates.

3rd FAWM track

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

I’ve gotten behind in posting these on my blog. My third track for FAWM 2016. I swear I’ll name these soon … this one has a few layers of violin, plus Korg MS-20 mini bass, drum machine and some LPG percussion from the modular synth.
