Album Releases

If you’d like a taste of what I call my ‘metric’ for live music performance, you could do worse than the album of the same name, a single long-form piece on earthMANTRA. Because it’s live and unedited, metric has some rough spots, but it holds up well with repeated listens.

Way over on the more drifty calm ambient side of things is eocene, an album utterly unlike anything I’ve done before or since, also available free on Earth Mantra. 

Based on an obscure scene from an obscure Japanese sci-fi film, eocene is an experiment in timbrally simple drone ambience that has gotten some really great reviews. I love it because it represents what can happen when my studio, my life circumstances, and my desire for new beauty all come together perfectly—what I called “a rare moment of real peace” in my exciting, noisy life.

In 2016, I was investigating a new way of composing music, one that provided a way around many of the irritations and distractions that made solo work so unpleasant for me most of the time. For the first time in many years, I found that I was creating really worthwhile music at an unheard of pace... and the fruition of this burst of creativity was the album fade, now available on CD and download from the Aural Films net label. I think you'll really enjoy it.
