Musical Dabblings Me, Ada, and a Guitar

I’ve been messing around making music for years in one form or another. I used to play guitar, then got into electronic music production and eurorack, and have recently been learning piano, with a focus on jazz.

I've released three albums of instrumental, eurorack-focused techno/ambient tunes on Bandcamp.

Wind Wound Close (2022)

A collection of eurorack-based melodic ambient and techno pieces recorded live in single takes between November 2020 and August 2022. Videos for all of the tracks are available on my YouTube channel.

Meander (2020)

As the name suggests, this collection of instrumental, synth tracks wanders a bit. From upbeat, kick-driven pieces (Triumvirate, Leeway, Boundary Conditions, In Subharms Way) through dub (Dubious) to rich, formless ambient (Send Return Fade, Inertia). Videos for all the tracks on the album are available on YouTube.

Pieces (2014–2019)

A collection of instrumental, modular synth-focused pieces that I recorded between mid-2014 and early 2019.

Older Stuff

Below is a selection of much older tracks that I think turned out ok.

You can find more of my tracks on my Soundcloud account.

A kind of dubby techno piece, again using only sounds from my MicroBrute plus arrangement and production in Ableton Live. I was particularly impressed by the quality of the drum sounds this little synth can make. (2015)

This is the first piece I wrote when I got my hands on the fantastic MicroBrute analog synth. The only sounds here are the MicroBrute and the Magnetic delay effect. (2014)

My remix of Nils Frahm’s beautifully spare piano piece that I did as part of his SCREWS reworked project. (2014)

This one started as a slow chord progression that lent itself to having a dubby atmosphere piled on. (2013)

One moment I’m playing around with sidechain compression, the next thing I know I’ve put together a four-on-floor dance track! (2013)

Another remix, this time for my good friends The Neo. They were lovely enough to include my version as an extra on their Seretonin album. (2003)

This older remix of FourPlay’s Lilli Pilli Drive is all over the place: an ambient beginning, a segue into some drum & bass, and down-tempo ending. I had a lot of fun chopping and rearranging Lara’s vocals. (2001)
