In honor of summer harvest and the Dore Alley Street Fair going on today in San Francisco, here’s one of my latest collaborative efforts. This track features the beautiful voice of Jessica D. Lewis, as recorded by the incredibly talented John Dugan. John, I wish I had just a sliver of your synth collection, and Jessica, just a small bit of your vocal talent!
This is a track I composed a couple of weeks ago for a friend of mine from my high school and college years. He needed a backing track for a game he’s been working on—something downtempo and cerebral. This was a rare composition in that I worked at 80BPM, which is much slower than I typically work at.
This was a whirlwind project. Start to finish, this took around 2-3 days to complete and run through a mastering phase.
Revisiting some old Max/MSP instruments I’ve built after a really inspiring Live 9 workshop I went to in San Francisco today. I’m really psyched about the new features—I’m really looking forward to building out some new fun plugins…!
Early 2008. This is later atom(bang) work. Not sure why this was never released before—it’s one of around 15 different tracks that I did from 2007-2009 that never made it past the project stage. Never really polished this one, and it’s never been released before.
This track went from initial melody to finished song really quickly—I remember thinking that it was probably one of the quickest I had finished composing during this era.
