The Old San Juan (album release)

Album Cover showing the bottom half of an elderly man sitting in a cafe

All of the material on this release was recorded on an iPhone between 4/22/2022 and 4/30/2022 in Puerto Rico, with the exception of a guitar loop that was recorded in Baltimore on 4/22/2022. I brought the loop to work on with my iPad, and included it in this audio postcard as it felt like part of the trip to me.

The source material includes:

  • various vendors selling beer and food
  • a walk through Ponce
  • a distressed stray dog
  • street performers
  • the Atlantic Ocean at Castillo San Cristóbal
  • invisible frogs
  • a fellow traveler who snored continuously during a trip to the rain forest

Not a very thick album, but it conveys memory and feelings of the trip.

Loops with Chloë

I got to hang out with my daughter Chloë in the Theoretical Audio Laboratory, and we made some loops. We really don’t do this often enough. Hope to change that! Love you, Chloë!

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!

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.
