FAWM 2019

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

Well, it’s February (almost over now, I know), so I am in the midst of recording another album. Actually at this point I have reached 14 songs, but I still have 1 or 2 left to go.

This year, I’ve rented a viola and my album revolves around that.

Here’s the first song I recorded, “Dividing Surfaces.” This features the viola (both dry and processed by modular synth) and a couple synth drones/layers from the Soma Lyra 8.

The “As The Flow Cries” album was largely recorded in a cabin in Brown County, Indiana, in early December, 2016.


Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of the making of the album.

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.
