Skunk Works

316px-Skunk_works_Logo.svgI haven’t done too much on SoundCloud for quite some time. It’s not really a great platform for marketing my music, especially now since they got rid of the groups there. I’ve long since cancelled my Pro membership, and have kind-of just let it die off over the past year.

However, it is a great little platform to get out new pieces of music I am playing with. So, if you’re interested, head on over to my SoundCloud page and see what I’ve got in the hopper and what I’ve been working on.

Follow me on there, to get notified of when new clips and tracks are posted! I’ll happily give you a follow back as well if you are posting to SoundCloud as well, so that I can be in the loop on what my friends and fans are also doing with their music!

Feedback is paramount, so please let me know if you like what you’re hearing there. It’ll directly influence what appears on upcoming releases!

New Release – Ghosts of Her Dreams

At long last, I am excited to be finally releasing my new album, Ghosts of Her Dreams. The original concept came from a dream my wife had one night, and then it morphed into this. I am also pleased to have had collaborated with my talented wife on the cover artwork of this album – that credit goes all to her! Check out her work at evarodesign.wordpress.com.

Coming soon to other digital media outlets, such as Amazon, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and more. I will announce again when that happens. In the meantime, it is available for purchase and streaming on BandCamp.

Live the design? It looks awesome on a shirt.

Ghosts of Her Dreams

Ghosts of Her Dreams

Released: July 17, 2018

One time my wife had woken up, and remembered a strange dream. It wasn’t long, it was more of a quick blip of an image. There was a biscuit snail on top of a parking garage. A snail with a biscuit for a shell. This is one of hundreds of weird and odd dreams she’s had and has informed me about. This was the inspiration for this album, along with the cover artwork. Dreams can be weird, odd, obscure, and otherworldly. As are the tracks contained within this collection. I hope you enjoy this, and can let your mind wander even somewhere remotely close to wherever she was transported to.

Cover artwork by Em Varosky (evarodesign.wordpress.com).

New Release – 74m 1s

74m 1s

74m 1s

Released: January 22, 2017

A re-interpretation of Moby’s “long ambients1: calm. sleep.” released in March of 2016 to the world for free, to do what they want with. He provided about 4 hours in total of music in this release, and I am planning on doing several re-interpretations of them, this being the first. All source material used is from this album.

In the words of Moby “it’s really quiet: no drums, no vocals, just very slow calm pretty chords and sounds and things for sleeping and yoga and etc. and feel free to share it or give it away or whatever, it’s not protected or anything, or at least it shouldn’t be.”

To get and to listen to the original source material, visit moby.com/la1/

This, just like the source material, is also free to do what you want with it.

New Release – Torchwood Archive – (Cambridge) 剑桥

IMG_20160210_223815 (2)

I’ve been working on some music that doesn’t quite fall under ambient/experimental. More along the lines of house/lounge. I’ve decided to release this instead of under musical nature, under Torchwood Archive, still falling under my label Primary Field Recording Device.

With that, I give you to the (Cambridge) 剑桥 EP, released on December 7, 2017.

Listen, buy and stream at the following media outlets:

Also available on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Rhapsody, eMusic, Rdio, Shazam, and many more digital media services!

Thanks for sticking with me during this experiment. I hope to do another one down the road that gets me behind the keyboard(s), synths, and whatever else at least once a day for a solid month again.
