31 Days of Ambience – August 2017

31 Days of Ambience

You may have saw that I mentioned a short while ago, that come August, I will be releasing one new bit of ambience each day. Today, August has begun, and I am releasing my first track, 080117.

What can you expect for the next 30 days? Ambience. One track, each day. This will initially be released on Bandcamp and SoundCloud.

It will be available on Bandcamp for purchase if you see fit to do so… otherwise, it is yours for free. Do what you want with it. Create new works. It is free for the world to consume, in the spirit of Moby’s Long Ambients1. Like he said “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”. All I ask is a wee little credit line somewhere. Even a mention on twitter is fine 🙂

Let me know what you think of this project, if you like it, want more of it, are using it, etc.

This is my opportunity to create new music each and every day for an entire month, and I want you to create with me.

Cheers!

Coming August 1st – 31 Days of Ambience

31 Days of AmbienceBack at the end of May, I posted that for one month, I would create every day. Make something new… I called this 31 Days of Ambience. I had initially aimed for July, but, you know, life happened. I am however, going to do this for August.

August will not be easy to pull off, I am going on a week-long vacation with family on a lake in the middle of nowhere, I am closing (hopefully) on our new home… and so many other things that can easily push this to the back burner. This shall not rest there, and be delayed over and over.

I vow in August to publish a piece of ambient music each day. It will go here, on BandCamp, SoundCloud, and various FB groups. It will be available on Bandcamp for purchase if you see fit to do so… otherwise, it is yours for free. Do what you want with it. Create new works. It is free for the world to consume, in the spirit of Moby’s Long Ambients1. Like he said “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”. All I ask is a wee little credit line somewhere. Even a mention on twitter is fine 🙂

If for some reason I miss a day, due to, you know, life happening… I will make up for it. I promise. By the end of August, you will get 31 new tracks, ranging from short samples to long form pieces.

Cocktail Hour

CocktailHour-titleI recently got married! We had taken care of every detail about the wedding. Centerpieces, layout for the backdrop of the ceremony, pictures, planning for the weekend (it was kind of a destination wedding), water bottle design, and of course, the music.

My (now wife) suggested that we use some of my music… why I did not think of this, remains to be figured out still. So, with a couple of weeks to go, we wanted to create something along the lines of Layers, a music installation.

I had her make some selections, and I did as well, and then I got down into my tracks and split them up to be in a layered format.

I then needed to find the hardware to pull this off. I at first wanted to have the tracks played from wireless speakers, without using a secondary MP3 player plugged into the auxiliary port, but could not find the right stuff.

I finally settled on the DOSS Touch Wireless speaker, with a cheap-ish MP3 player plugged into it. And it worked brilliantly.

Now that the wedding has past, I wanted to share this to my few faithful followers. This album is a modified version of my previous work from Atachafalaya, VR:1, and Eavesdropping – each have been split up into two layers, designed to be played simultaneously from two separate sources.

It is available for Name Your Price on bandcamp only. Pay nothing, or, pay something. You decide…

Enjoy! Let me know your thoughts…

And now for something completely different…

PROFILE-PHOTO-022317-em_thumb.jpgI don’t always do ambient. Sometimes I fool around a bit, and create something completely out of the ambient/ambient house/experimental genres. I guess this could be considered experimental for me, but, I got my start decades ago DJ’ing… so this kind of thing brings me back to those days a bit.

And now I give you, a few tracks from the Torchwood Archive.

Give them a listen, and let me know what you think!
