Enjoy a Sneak Peek at a Couple of WIPs

I’ve made a couple of cool demo videos for you to take a peek at these two works I’ve got on the burner right now… 🙂

First, a look at “Ayre of Grievances” for flute, violin, and viola (a digital playback demo of just the opening section):

Second, here’s a short example of a cool sampling piece I’m putting together: “Tonal Eclipse”

Enjoy, and keep an eye out for the finished works soon!

New Release: “Isolation Loop”

Now available everywhere– Isolation Loop…

“Isolation Loop” is an original creation made with loops broken down from H.I.F. Biber’s Passacaglia for solo violin from his Rosary Sonatas of 1676. The viola and violins blend with a driving soundscape of synthesis and drums to create a haunting texture at home in any era.

Listen to it your preferred way at the link!

Basement Jams: Looper Experiment #1, “Mellow”

I’m back in my basement studio with my native flute, handpan, and my viola to experiment with the AudioKit L7 looper app! (I love AudioKit’s app SynthOne, too–I highly recommend checking it out!)

Ideally, I would use headphones and record the sound properly, but I wanted to see how the app handled a spontaneous “live” sort of setting…. Enjoy this randomly improvised, modern passacaglia, and expect more musical experiments to come… 😉

By the by, be sure to check out my single Chant de Grenouille sur la Lune if you like this kind of sound.

New Movement for “Nevermore” Available, with Demo

If you’ve enjoyed “The Raven” from my recent suite for viola and piano, Nevermore, then you might be pleased to know I’ve just finished the second movement, “Annabel Lee.”

I think this poem by Edgar Allen Poe might be one of my favorite literary works… 🤔🥰 I tried to keep the sense of innocence and deep sorrow in this musical rendition. There is a third and final movement–“Tell-Tale Heart”–planned for the future, too; so keep an eye out for that. 😉

In the meantime, enjoy the simple demo of “Annabel Lee” below…

Newest Album “Legend Seekers” is Available!!

It’s out now!! This project has been roughly eight years in the making, since the time I finished writing “Leviathan of the Ancient Deep“… and this album itself has taken about a year to complete. It was all worth it–I learned so much in the process and I think we’ve got a really superb collection now! 🙂

Thank you to everyone who made this possible: musicians, backers, and everyone else who patiently rooted for me.

In a world where adventure calls and the intrepid answer… where the daring explore a mystifying world of Dream and Thought… where heartbreak twists into furious desperation… where virtuosic fits of funkiness stare brazenly into the face of danger… where forgetfulness drives discovery and hope… 

In this world, Leviathan — a creature that haunts the Ancient Depths — lies in wait to strike upon those that seek its legendary might! 
Who will win this contest of wills? The stirring waves bear witness to this eternal struggle…

“Legend Seekers” Album Notes

Listen to it on any of your favorite music platforms today!
