Music

I write and record music at home, largely for my own pleasure. Most of it┬átends to be noisy, experimental, and not the sort of thing you’ll hear on the radio. I record under several “band” or project names, depending on what sort of music I’m creating. Feel free to download and enjoy. Or not.

m2

Sprawling soundscapes and guitar sounds. Improvised ambient guitar recordings, layered sounds, walls of noise. Recommended if you like The Azusa Plane, Windy & Carl, Flying Saucer, Attack, lovesliescrushing, Merzbow, or My Bloody Valentine without songs or a band.

X-Sweet

Traditional songs recorded badly in a basement or at a desk or in a garage. At times influences from My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Ride, and Jesus and Mary Chain are apparent, at times it’s just ordinary ‘rock’ music.

Second Slumber

Long, sprawling post-rock guitar pieces, largely improvised. Similar to m2, but given form and structure with drums, best, and the other trappings of a full band. Influences include Bardo Pond, The Dead C, The Azusa Plane, and Boredoms.

The Experiment

The name is the explanation; these records are the result of playing with and learning audio software. All are created digitally, though they sometimes include analog samples. Sometimes there are beats, sometimes ambience, sometimes nonsense.

Tape Theory

Largely (but not always) electronic songs, often intended to be somewhat abrasive, usually created around a theme. Ranges from brutal Nine Inch Nails remix-style noisy beats to gentle ambiance.

Slumbersigh

A jam band project from the late 1990s. Inspired by groups like Bardo Pond, this was post-rock before post-rock became a big(er) thing. Short-lived, we recorded a few things, played a few shows, and flared out within a few months.
