A few audio fragments that I've goofed around with during my ever-diminshing free time. While some people play video games and others watch sitcoms, I like to dice up sounds to wind down for the day. Most of these channel my dilettantish interest in musique concrète, but otherwise don't carry any specific meaning or philosophy. 

Adrift in the Cosmos and Interlude From an Unwritten Dream Pop Song are doodles created with Apple's Garageband. I quite like the latter and think it'd make a lovely bridge in a pop song. Maybe Kevin Parker can do something with this?

Morales and My Babe are nonsensical experiments in dissonance, somewhat in the vein of power electronics/industrial noise. My Babe (Tra La La La La) began as an earnest attempt to write a love song in ye olde Motown tradition. But more often than not, love feels more like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre than This Old Heart of Mine. So voila! Little by little I poke at it, piling sounds like toppings on a pizza, but it's not a high priority for me. Sometimes I think it's best left incomplete, for the composition in my head is always better than the finished product. My only regret is scratching that Samantha Sang record (as it turns out, "Emotion" is a very catchy tune).

Jazzy Jeff is a backing track for another composition that I had second thoughts about. It's mostly compiled from Gregorian chants.

The Fiddler Finds a Stairwell to Hell might be the most realized of these pieces. The rhythm track is comprised entirely of "She Said She Said" by The Beatles, meanwhile the rest is a mixture of feedback, my wailing into a pair of earbuds, and various snatches of Krzysztof Penderecki.

Cavernous Sounds and Wind Mending Psalm are nice little pillow tracks that fill the gaps in between meatier compositons. I envision the latter as the kind of thing that a musician would place in the inner groove of a vinyl record, so that it repeats continously until the listener lifts the tonearm on the turntable.

Echoes of Great Spaces Traversed is a demo for the soundtrack of a short film I'm working on.
