  • 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. […]

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 […]

  • IX

    The result of hundreds of hours of labor, this 27 voice recording of IX is the product of seven years of research into simulation, mediation and chaos. It is inspired by composers such as Iannis Xenakis and David Dunn. This piece is comprised 27 discrete 83 minute recordings of an analog/digital synthesis system I designed […]

  • Patches for Prophet 12/Hyrdasynth

    I have been busy lately preparing my dissertation, but I found time recently to document my some of the patches I created for the Prophet 12 and the Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth. See below:

  • Dynamic Mp3 Compression

    I created a small system to dynamically generate the kinds of artifact you used to hear on bad Mp3s or streaming services. I have been writing about this in my dissertation (specifically the brilliant Lossy plugin from Goodthertz). One of the basic things that I am trying to demonstrate in my writing/research is how different […]

  • State Matrix

    Here are a few images of the State Matrix as we continue with prototyping it. More images and videos to come:
