the long circuitous road that lead to my guitar presence here- I played drums for a high school band called The Motives, who, at a small lakeside resort ballroom called Vasa Park, won a battle of the bands. One of those bands was A Boy and His Dog, Ann Wilson sang lead. We were all [...]

  After a few darker pieces I did mention somewhat guiltily that the next one would be “prettier”, here it is. Beyond that I’d like to let it speak for itself. Noteworthy though, I reconnected with my old friend David Nielsen, we played together for several years some time ago, and share a lot of musical [...]

Retribute

  Another in a string of what may seem like grim metallic pieces.. in fact I almost titled this one “grimm”. Is the feel of the times is creeping into my activities? Maybe, but it has more to do with what I was working on in the ‘90s. This being another rework and completion of [...]

the description on the youtube page is explanatory, finally decided to put it here too.  

Vith

If Fiona Apple and Trent Reznor had a demon love child (minus a good chunk of the talent) that possessed me for a bit I suppose it would result in something like this. I can’t be held responsible. Synthesized voice intentional, largely unintelligible lyrics intentional. This and all posted music can be heard on my [...]

Groundward

Fourth 4TH

Fourth attempt to make this sound right.. at least to me. Abandoned the nostalgia of lifting original tracks from 90s cassette, remade and remixed the vast majority. At least it can be heard now and maybe I can live with it… Original info here. The indulgences of the amateur, nothing ever really need’s to be [...]

Some mood settled in, I was playing with the boxes, ya know, and the knobs on the boxes, then a loop went sideways and stayed there. Some weeks later  here we are. This concludes the english language portion of the presentation. No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- West Winter Meridiem The same Youtube video with still image above, [...]

I started this a few months back. My friend Tim Orden invited me to collaborate on a conceptual film, dance, music piece called Anthropocene. Some elements of what I had started seemed perfect and with some variation was submitted to him. As this was completed it became variations in itself, so I stole Tim’s title. [...]

4TH- remixed

The short story- Some grungy riff rock I wrote in the 90s. Lifted the guitar tracks off an old cassette and re-contextualized the whole thing… The long story- Enough talk No video, but highest quality audio: Soundcloud- 4TH The same Youtube video with still image above, hosted at Fandalism: Fandalism- 4TH     All posted [...]
