Music

As of October 31, 2017, I have four albums available via my Bandcamp page.

Another Place 1, A City is a Sound (+ Digital Booklet)

Another Place 1, A City is a Sound (small)

A modern sound captures the retro spirit of the great American cities of the 1970s. From the bad old days of Times Square, through the rust belt, to the polyglot neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Sixteen tracks evoking the dirty, the arty, the shambolic, and the glorious.

Here’s a sample track.

The album comes with a 15-page illustrated digital booklet with enhanced period photographs. The booklet comes in two version, hi-res for use on computers, and a version optimized for portable devices.

From the liner notes:

A city is a sound, a particular oscillation,
A tone and a timbre
Shaped by the unique way that
The buildings in this town
Channel the air currents–
The gait with which these individual residents walk
Vibrating the earth just so.
A city is a waveform sculpted by the
Singular shape of its skyline,
Which tailors its harmonics,
Introduces interference, and
Anchors high, cutting tones
With deep, bass booms. 


Another Place 2, Alone in a Big Place (+Digital Booklet)

APAT 02 AIABP cover small

There’s a feeling you get when you’re alone in a big place–under the stars in the wilderness, or on the ocean by yourself with no land in sight. It’s unsettling and awe inspiring at the same time. This album deals with that feeling, from a cosmonaut suddenly cut off from the Earth, to a security guard who experiences a blinding, otherwordly vision in an empty factory at midnight, to a man who stays behind after the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear plant to care for the city’s stray cats.

Includes a 50-page illustrated digital booklet, with short fiction to accompany each track. The booklet comes in two versions, one hi-res for use on computers, and the other optimized for portable devices.

Here’s a sample track.


Another Place 3, Out of Place (+Digital Booklet)

Out of Place Obverse 02 (small)

Sometimes finding yourself unexpectedly in a strange, new place can be oddly welcoming. This album deals with that experience, from a woman who’s chosen to live her life in one sterile airport hotel after another, to a woman who wakes from a blackout in the middle of a desert, to a woman and man who fall in love at first sight at the scene of a multiple murder.

Includes a 49-page illustrated digital booklet, with short fiction to accompany each track. The booklet comes in two versions, one hi-res for use on computers, and the other optimized for portable devices.

Here’s a sample track:
