Droning on

Oct. 27, 2017

The weather's turning cool (first snow of the season today), and most of us turn inward. Either physically inward to a cup of coffee or a warm blanket, or figuratively inward to a good book or period of self-reflection. It is times like these that I turn to noise and drone music. There is something raw and concrete about the genre that encompasses noise and drone that pulls at my chest through my ears. I am left in suspense waiting for the next swell or timbre change.

This is all to say I am working on some new music I would consider both noise and drone and hope to make available to you all within the month of November. It's not quite like meditations and it's definitely not what I posted earlier with my work-in-progress. While you eagerly await my new music, I encourage you to watch People Who Do Noise, a documentary about the noise music scene in Portland, Oregon. You should also spend some time listening to Yellow Swans, a now-disbanded experimental group also from Portland.

Coming soon

July 26, 2017

As the new server/site is coming, so is some new music. I have been working diligently on a "sequel" to my first round of meditations. These next three routines will center around the frequency 72 Hz. Slightly higher than the previous 60 Hz. and slightly (ever so slightly) more energetic.

Rather than attach a preview clip, I am providing a preview image. I think the PureData* patch explains a lot about how I operate (musically and otherwise).

* For those not in the know, PureData is open source software for graphically programming music and sound.

A quick lesson

July 21, 2017

This evening I created a quick lesson on how to compose music in the 21st Century. You can listen to it on SoundCloud. I don't think I ever intend to include this jocular piece in a future release, so listen up while you can!
