Below are my live eurorack explorations for the week of November 2nd, 2020. I took my start from Todd Barton’s Buchla Bongo video. In this eurorack modular synth jam, I started with a Eurorack version of the Buchla bongos using an Instruo CS-L and a Serge NTO going through an Optomix. Both oscillators have their […]
Below are my live electronic explorations during the week of October 26th, 2020 This live electronic Eurorack/modular synth jam was made using two channels of Instruo into an Optomix, and then double gating Optomix using 4 LFOs from two Maths modules. The result was complex rhythms and even some AM happening. Pressure CV to notes […]
Below are my live eurorack explorations for the week of October 19th, 2020. Enjoy! This is a live eurorack/modular synth jam I put together using one of the free reels Make Noise released for Morphagene the other day. I played a bass pedal note on the Moog Grandmother and chords on the Sequential OB-6, with […]
Below are all my live improvisational explorations for the week of October 12th, 2020. Enjoy! This is more of my process of using my film scoring rack to improvise live. Notes and gates are coming from the Stillson Hammer and Rene into a 4ms Tapographic Delay. I added the OB-6 to play chords, because sometimes […]
Here are a few videos for the week of October 5th, 2020. Enjoy! This is a live Eurorack improvisation using a Frap Tools Sapel to drive the clocks, with a Stillson Hammer quantizing the pitches. Lots and lots of random voltages from both the Sapel and the Wogglebug. The oscillator is an Instruo CS-L and […]
I’m working on a new electronic album for late 2020, and a lot of my recent inspiration comes from the film soundtrack for the movie Gone Girl. I grew up with Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails, so this has been fun to go all analog synths, eurorack, and Morphagene to create these mysterious emotion […]
This piece started as an orchestral rescore for a few scenes from A Close Shave, a Wallace and Gromit film. I have repurposed it to be used as a library track for any kind of animation or animated film.
This is an EDM and trap hybrid music track I made in 2018 to dj in clubs with. Lots of heavy 808s! The process was built around combining the vocal sample with a chord progression that would work together.
This soundtrack was written for the film Life of a Doll, which is a metaphor for the COVID 19 quarantine in NYC happening now. I wrote the music for orchestra and some experimental electronics that I created myself using Straylight and Kontakt with experimental delays and freezes. My interpretation of the film is that the […]
