  • Shoredrift

    An experiment with Ableton Live, Isotope Iris (the main layers of bells/chime samples– wow!), Applied Acoustic Systems’ Chromaphone (really malleable physical-modeling synth), and Live’s built-in toy piano samples.

  • The Third Letter

    The Third Letter

    Little Mama is dying. I wrote her some letters, and Milena told me she read them to her, and that she told everyone to make plans to go to Ft Worth for the big art opening in December. That makes me happy, to know that she wants to go. That project was a big one […]

  • 6: Amara, “Musical Minds” – Sun loves Earth, humming version

    A humming version of Amara (the 6th track/painting in Libba’s 11). In keeping with the no-lyrics theme we’ve already got going in the 11, this version replaces the original version’s sung lyrics with humming the melody. I like this version. It’s really sweet. I added a touch of reverb to the melody in this version, too. […]

  • New Music Like Crazy!

    Man, I have been really inspired by the commission from Libba and Ron to create sounds for “Libba’s 11,” as I’m calling them. Very interesting project, right up my alley, as Ron asked for sounds at about a minute long– which has been about the length I’ve been doing with my voice jingles on my […]

  • Plurimae Voces

    Plurimae Voces is an album of voice-focused tracks I created and worked on for several months, over 2010 and 2011. “Plurimae voces” is Latin for “many voices,” which seemed to be a fitting title for this collection. It seems that I’ve gotten back to my musical roots– singing– in the past couple years. Singing is […]

  • Psychedemia Podcast Jingle: “happyMorning”

    2012-07-27: Android Jones is one of the primary visual artists for Psychedemia. He’s known for his spiritual/techno/futuristic creations, and I was focusing on his work when I created this bubbly “ancient tribal funk” jingle for the Psychedemia Podcast. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Psychedemia-Podcast/121569081316731 2012-06-19: Daniel said they LOVE it, so it’s a wrap! I just made sure there were […]
