Fathom remix

Fathom first appeared on “Words” in 2022. It was the last completed song, I perhaps rushed it a bit as well as aiming higher than my comfort zone. After ongoing tweaks over many months, as I’m not a pro, this arrangement/mix better expresses the intentions, though the album version is fine, and better mastered by […]

In 2021 I created a piece titled Arcadia as background music for a video of landscape photographs-  tylerboley.com/landscape/ But I found it unsatisfactory as a stand-alone piece, or I would have put it on “Erratics”- tylerboley.com/new-album-erratics/ I wanted to ease into making some music again after a year away from it, not too complex, overthought, […]

Finally an album

David Nielsen and I were in bands together long ago, with all the associated R&R experiences, for five years or so. We connected again around 2015, jammed a few times, our abilities very rusty, and started a few songs that faded off to nowhere. Finally we knuckled down and completed “Catherine” in 2018, despite novice […]

new music- Fathom

Perhaps a bit psychedelic, a bit symphonic, a bit rock, another instrumental, this longer longer and a bit more of a journey. Headphones help, and few distractions. It may take a few listens, or none, don’t force it please. Rather than wear my influences on my sleeve, with this one I’m shamelessly projecting them on […]

new music- Gone

    *better mix linked above 1/18/22* Another short and sweet instrumental, some sort of punk/prog bastard? David again giving up an over-the-top drum track. This one is probably for turning up and flinging yourself around the room completely out of control, it’s quick, so harmless. More musics still to come. Here’s a bit OCD […]

new music- Panhead

To break through a long writing block, I decided to write something quickly, with less testing the limits of my abilities and knowledge, hopefully fun. This is the result, pretty much a hard rock three piece instrumental (of course), with 808 inspired bass, fairly short. Unfortunately the actual production of the recorded piece took much […]

new music- Lydia

Don Bird and I met in the early 70s, late 60s? Who knows. A hard rock band I was in call Joy was being reconfigured by “management” into a horn band. He played trumpet in those years, and was probably the more disciplined and musically proficient player in the band. Like most bands we evaporated, […]
