The work continues.
In the event someone stumbles upon this site in a nosy fashion, poking around to find out what kind of music I make, I'd like to respectfully suggest that you may well be better off listening to whatever you already like. This site is meant to be more of a historical archive than some type of personal advertisement. I don’t consider any of the music I’ve made to be important enough to push into anyone’s way. But since it’s been my life’s work for whatever reason, it would be a shame to let it die on some hard drive in an old shoebox.
An Abundance of Musical Material
Over the course of the last 22 years, I’ve considered writing and recording a mandatory process within my life. With just one small break from 2010 to 2013, I managed to rack up hundreds of hours of recordings. This is by no means a brag. Quantity does not bring quality. In fact it usually implies the opposite. What I have is many years of recordings, some of which are subpar when it comes to listening quality. Most of the recordings were demos. I'm currently in the long-term process of re-recording much of this material in the way it was intended to be heard. This means relearning complicated guitar, bass, keyboard and drum parts that were never transcribed. Many songs were in New Standard Tuning, which I haven't used consistently since 2006. The process is challenging, educational and emotionally satisfying. That being said, the music I make isn't for everyone. Some thoughtful observations by others have included the following:
"You're good, but you don't know the rules of music." "It's really noisy." It's really relaxing and had me falling asleep. "Stupid." "It's complicated and cool." "I don't really understand it." "Stick to your day job." "It's, uh, interesting." "It sounds crazy." "I guess I just don't get it." "Weird." "Sounds like shit."
Chances are that the music I've made is not for you. However, if you're into weird stuff, you may just enjoy some of it. In that case, click around.
