Limited Edition Eco-Pack CDs of Solstice Chill, legion d’honneur, Layers 2 and Eavesdropping are Now Available!

When I first started publishing my music, after my first release through a long defunct label Orbit Music (album: Forgotten Textures) back in 1998, I started releasing my music through the also now defunct MP3.com via their Digital Audio Music (D.A.M.) CDs, which was a print-on-demand service. Years later, I then found Lulu.com, and began to publish through there. They eventually dropped the CD print-on-demand service as well.

I then started releasing my music as digital only releases, through BandCamp, and all major digital music services such as Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, etc. And, except for short run CD-R releases I had made over the years and sold individually, I have never produced real physical copies in any sort of bulk. That has now changed!

I now have limited edition 50-CD runs of Solstice Chill, legion d’honneur, Layers 2 and Eavesdropping. These are in Eco-Pack sleeves, they are the similar to a jacket, but there is no glue, printed with eco-friendly inks, and is stored in a re-sealable cellophane bag.

Ask when ordering if you would like the cover, inside cover, or disc signed before I ship it out!

If you would prefer additional options when shipping, please contact me after the sale, and we can work out payment and additional shipping options such as insurance, delivery signature, etc.

Includes unlimited streaming of Eavesdropping via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

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 – 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.

Listen, buy and stream at the following media outlets:

New Release – légion d’honneur

Named after the French Legion of Honour, and the tracks named after the order’s motto: “Honneur et Patrie” (“Honour and Fatherland”).
