Shows, Videos and 5.1 Render of IX
The past few months have been really productive and busy. There’s a new project that I can’t talk about right now, but also a lot of other material that I can share. In addition to this (and my day job teaching at Berklee), I have put together a set of new material, which I have…
Mackie 32/8 No-Input Feedback Organ/Moog Grandmother Demo
I finally had some time to experiment with my Mackie 32-8 the other day and create what is the biggest no input feedback mixer I’ve ever seen. I tuned the EQs to produce a large, organ-like chord and made a piece with it. I am always thankful to have moments like this: Also, I made…
Tour Announcement/New Live Album
I’m excited to announce that I will be taking part in a mini tour this fall, with my friends Dysonant, Ben The Glorious Bastard, and Crew Called Self. We’re playing Pittsburgh, Columbus and Cleveland (more info below). This is my first tour since 2016. Parenthood and Ph.D. duties made it very difficult until recently. I…
Polyphonic Buchla – Free Samples For MPC One
I have always been curious about how polyphonic Buchla would sound. Today I autosampled my Buchla 200 modules (with some help from the Verbos Amplitude and Tone Controller) to find out. Spoiler alert: It sounds cool. You should be able to just drop this on the SD card of your MPC One and run it.…
Sequential Pro 3 Demo
I picked up the Pro 3 a few weeks ago, and have been making presets every spare minute I’ve had. I may post an updated video as I make more.
Mirage: Two New Albums
This project started in 2019. All of the non-vocal elements were recorded over a weekend. I wasn’t planning on making an album, or anything really, but thankfully I was recording, because as soon as I heard it I had this vision that emerged fully-formed. It was sort of annoying because I had two other albums…
Moog Mavis Demo
This came in the mail 2 hours ago and I figured that, despite the usual suspects doing videos (some of them quite good), I would do a quick demo because some folks asked.
New Presets for the Prophet 12
I had a few moments of free time for the first time in a while, so in preparation for the shows I have lined up in the summer/fall I started making some new presets for the Prophet 12, which is my primary touring machine. These were recorded straight into my interface and bounced without effects.…
First Live Shows Since Covid
After a 2 year (!) hiatus, I will be returning to live shows with Repairer of Reputations East Coast debut this Friday at Mayday in Providence, RI. Next month I’m filling out a line-up of dark synth music at Bar Freda in Queens. Details below.
Phi Beta Kappa Scholarship/New Release with David Dunn
I just wanted to share some news from recent weeks: On Monday I found out that I was one of ten scholars selected for the Phi Beta Kappa Northern California Scholarship. The award comes with $10,000 that will be used to support the completion of my dissertation, which I will defend exactly a month from…
