Ear-bleedingly relaxing music, just for you

While checking the traffic stats on my website, I came across this unusual link. Surfed over to check it out. It’s a French website in which people post what music they’re listening to at the moment. And one of those fellas happened to be listening to one of my albums. Well hey, that’s pretty neat. Brought a smile to my face. I give the stuff away — it’s just a hobby, really — so it’s always a joy when someone discovers it and likes it. After all, I make it for me, so when other people dig it that’s a bonus. You can listen along at home, too. Here’s the record he was listening to, for your downloading, ear-splitting pleasure: m2 – the dialogue of…

This music is plugtastic!

The first record from Carl Sagan’s Ghost is out and ready for download. Go here to get it. It’s ambient music, very soothing stuff, the kind of think you put on and mellow out to. I’ll have an epic 23-minute remix of “Soldania” on an upcoming EP to accompany the album. Ideally, it will be good sleeping music. Yes, such a thing exists. I swear to god. Few things are better than laying in bed on a hot summer night, sweat clinging to your skin and the breeze touching you like some unseen lover, and Windy & Carl just kind of filling up the space around you. Not played too loud — always softly — only just enough to chase away my tinnitus. It’s not…

A brief history of time

Well, my work PC kinda got borked on Friday, so I spent all day today running scan after scan after scan after scan. Think the problem is resolved. I blame … well, I blame someone who is not me. It wasn’t my fault. I swear it. Because things are rarely, if ever, my fault. Totally forgot to post this to my website after it was finished, so I’ll post it here instead. A month or two back I spent a few hours playing around with music by Stanley Lieber. He does moody, atmospheric ambient music I quite dig, so, in order to alleviate a boring Saturday afternoon, I decided to “remix” his latest, Visual Rhetoric. These are the results: 1) The Rhetoric of the Visually…

Time, time, can I get a few hours?

Too much to freakin’ do and not enough time to do it. Not that it isn’t my own fault. No one FORCES me to do this stuff. But I do it anyway because, you know, it’s fun. Or seems like fun. Or something. So anyway. Collaborating on an ambient music project with Daniel Davis of Carl Sagan’s Ghost. Go download some of his music. It’s damn spiffy, and I’m quite pleased to be working with him. We’ve a few tracks in progress (“Without Waking,” “Snow Queen’s Slumber”) that are sounding quite nice so far. If you want music to chill out to, this will be it. I’m also doing a remix of one of the tracks on his upcoming album. He doesn’t know it yet,…

A Beginning

I got a phone call a little while ago, an excited phone call from my friend Tim. He was talking about this project we started about three weeks ago. Just wanted to drop me a quick line to share a thought. “This is music for the iPod generation!” I paused. Reflected. And realized just how right he was. For a little over three weeks, Tim and I have been working on music. Writing. Tinkering. Tossing out ideas and seeing what sticks. I play guitar. He sings and comes up with everything else on the computer. The result so far has been … well, that would be telling. You’ll just have to listen for yourself. But music for the iPod generation? He’s absolutely right. The idea…
