After debating whether or not to for several months, I’ve released another collection of sketches, experiments, ideas, etc. from the past year. Click the cover-art below to listen and download for free (or you can pay if you’d like).
It’s really not much, mostly lo-fi instrumentals. All tracks were recorded on-the-spot in one take, although several of them have been edited to only the better bits. The only tracks that weren’t 100% improvised are “CigSmk” and “Troubling.” Some of the tracks I don’t like, and some of them I really enjoy, so I know I’ll revisit and elaborate upon a few of those at a later time.
I’ve got a lot more music coming, and it’ll be much more focused, along with better production. In the meantime, I leave you with this:
I must admit, I never expected it to take quite this long for my stuff to show up on Pandora. It is a bit disappointing.
I’m writing a lot. I promise there are things happening. It’s really true, I swear. Soon, my darlings.
Debut Release, More To Come
I’m very happy to announce that my first release, Collection One: Somewhat Overlain Sketches, is now available on iTunes and Amazon MP3. (It’s cheaper on Amazon, and I get about the same amount of money for it.) It will be available in most of the other online stores in the coming weeks as well.
The collection is composed of selected tracks from all my recorded experimenting and improvising in the past year. These were edited down to concise compositions, and vocals were added to five of them. I used a computer as little as possible in the production of these recordings, as the experiments were centered around live, real-time performance with real gear and instruments. This is how my live shows will be, accompanied by projection of my various video projects and experiments. I am in the process of getting some shows booked in the Houston area, so stay tuned for that announcement, a video and some new mp3 downloads very soon.
