The Shillelagh

I went to my P.O. box this week, and was surprised to find a large box waiting for me from my college roommate and old friend, Brent.

I was speechless.

He made this guitar, a hobby he perfected up during the pandemic.

He walked me through the guitar – he knew I didn’t own a telecaster, so he started there. The neck, with its strat-like headstock, is nice and thick, like a ’58 Les Paul. It has Wolftone P90 pick-ups (mean and meaner). It’s obviously Green sparkle, a huge weakness of mine. The fret markers GLOW-IN-THE-DARK!!! It has an f-hole!

I am so touched by Brent’s thoughtfulness and generosity. The Shillelagh is a welcome addition to my little musical family, and I’m excited to see what we can make together.

Music to Hear Blindfolded, Vol.1

I’ve got some cassettes available from Scientifically Sound Records! This release is called “Music to Hear Blindfolded, vol. 1,” and it evolved from my “write music everyday” challenge for 2021.

Cover of "Music to hear blindfolded, vol 1," which shows a woman's legs propped up on a hotel wall.

This music and sound on this cassette is intended to inspire and/or accompany film and animation. Some of the audio was used in my videos.

Approximately 40 minutes in length, the tape is a mix of musique concrète, found audio, loops, and stuff I recorded at the Theoretical Audio Laboratory.

This will not be available on Bandcamp, and this will be a very limited release. All tapes are signed by me.

Volume 2 is in the works.

S. Ex. no. 12

I made this in a couple of hours this afternoon. The bass isn’t very tight, but I had fun making it, and I think there’s something in here. The video is a compilation of morsels from various trips.
