Notes: I make compositions using any instrument or technology I can get my hands on. My songs are made extemporaneously with any available equipment, and vary wildly in style and mood. Once I have a group of finished songs on my hard drive, I give them a collective title and move on to the next batch.
Each album contains everything I was working on at that particular time. Film scores, bits of interesting noises, sound collages, complete pop songs, soundtrack compositions, punk, folk, country, rock, metal, electronic, acoustic, whatever.
The truth is that I just love sounds. Even if they’re not organized, or actual songs, or even pleasant. I like the contrast of textures, the impact of dynamics, the sweetness of melody and the vibrational math of harmonies. I like to break audio down and reconstruct it into something new. I like to create compositions containing sounds no one has heard before.
