Everything you hear was recorded by me, my computer, my bass, my voice, and my whistle, in my practice room here in Oberlin Conservatory. Each piece was completely improvised in one take on the afternoon of Saturday, March 30.
Slight track editing (gain control, track splitting, reverb), album art creation (a screenshot of a video of me performing a different piece), and publishing all occurred within 24 hours of recording.

The titles and stories were afterthoughts, concepts that the music evoked for me. Feel free to interpret however you want. Tell me if you get anything cool.


released March 30, 2013

I use an Ibanez SR-405 Five-String electric bass guitar,
a Tascam US-122 for interfacing with my computer,
Circular Labs' Mobius for looping (,
MiLo's Soundleech for recording (,
Audacity for recording and editing (gain control, track splitting, reverb),
and Adobe Soundbooth CS3 for editing (fading, normalization, mp3 conversion, Soundcloud excerpts)
