Voyage through the nether

After a bit of creative downtime, I finally got around to recording again. The raw track was created with an approximated Frippertronics-style setup directly into Ardour. I later went back and ran the original audio through Guitarix and Rakarrack to add some additional effects. I did a little bit with Paulstretch to lengthen things (nothing dramatic) to get what you hear as the end result.

I chose to use artwork by Thomas Park (Mystified, Mister Vapor) once again as like to think it compliments my own abstract approach.

This piece began as an improvised guitar drone that had been laying dormant on my hard drive for a few years. I often revisit such recordings, massaging and shaping them into something new. I like the way this one turned out because it works as an ambient piece, subtly blending in like wallpaper, while rewarding the active listener with a droning textural undercurrent. Enjoy!

Luciftias_TNHGIITThe idea behind this piece was to apply a Frippertronics/drone approach using a bass guitar instead of my usual 6-string. I wanted to incorporate tapped harmonics into this as well. The original recording was roughly 14 minutes long, but I did some minor stretching and additional editing to create the final track.

New release!

Astralnautical update

After the Shrouded Allusion collaboration, Thomas Park (Mystified, Mister Vapor) asked me to rework his 6-hour ambient album, Beyond the Velvet Sky. I obliged, and a very extensive minimalist piece is the result. Though I may attempt some further modifications, I will soon be unleashing Astralnautics For Beginners for your “sleep listening” enjoyment(?) At nearly 9 hours long, I doubt anyone will be checking it out in one sitting, and in truth, it’s not really meant for active listening anyway.
