A quick one to show off the Excess V2 by Old Blood Noise Endeavors – I really like this pedal.

Goldberg Variations

I’ve successfully completed the RPM challenge for 2022. This is my third success in five attempts, and I think it’s the best one yet.

This video to explain the why’s and how’s of this one. I’m proud of this work, and I hope you’ll check it out. If you are a Patreon subscriber, I’ll share the free download link!

RPM challenge 2022

It’s that time of year again! I’m throwing my hat in for the RPM challenge, and I’m planning on spinning up a nice, hot platter of musique concrète.

More as I know it!

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.
