There's been a lot of talk lately of the photos that the Jack Webb telescope took of the far reaches of the universe. Seeing those images motivated me to record an extended cosmic drone experience (with a little help from my Soma Labs Cosmos, appropriately subtitled a "drifting memory station").

If you like non-melodic, non-harmonic, non-rhythmic "music," then you've come to the right place (although "hippodrone" should probably be titled "hyperdrone"). Enjoy (or not) by clicking HERE to sample a track from my Bandcamp site.
Radio Waves is the product of listening to "Hearts of Space" radio program, perhaps too often. To make these tracks, I used a monophonic synthesizer (Arturia Microbrute) and a polyphonic synthesizer (Korg Minilogue), running them both through an Eventide Blackhole reverb pedal.

Gloam, meaning "twilight," is what you'd expect: subdued, droning, ambient music. To make these tracks I used two monophonic synthesizers (Arturia Microbrute and Dave Smith Pioneer DJ) and an 88-key digital piano in "vibraphone" mode. Click HERE to listen to a sample from my Bandcamp site.
Like Gloam, Factory is a collection of electronic-based ambient tracts. Here I used two monophonic synthesizers (Arturia Microbrute and Dave Smith Pioneer DJ) and a lot of reverb, vibrato and chorus. Unlike Gloam, Factory has a more mechanical, if not metallic, edge to it. Click HERE to listen to a sample from my Bandcamp site.
Optical is a good example of my interest in slowly unfolding soundscapes. I used a monophonic synthesizer (Arturia Microbrute) with lots of reverb, delay, and vibrato to create these tracks. Click HERE to listen to a sample from my Bandcamp site.
