about

A collection of songs and instrumentals. Tracks will be added or updated as work is done.

All source sounds (aside from any vocals) come from a Yamaha JR2 acoustic guitar. It's a 3/4-sized instrument.

I've been recording a number of riffs and improvisations, and assorted chord sequences. I then take these, slice them up, and arrange the pieces into songs .

Small guitar pieces.

While I've limited myself to the guitar as source I do go on and manipulate these samples in Renoise (my preferred DAW). I don't have any hard-and-fast restrictions other than to try not to simply make it sound like a basic amped-up electric guitar. Ring modulation gets heavy use.

The goal is to eventually have a set of 10 or so final tracks, a mix of songs and instrumentals.

Track Name: This Climate
This climate sheds a quiet tale
Routine undesigned
The greetings pass as we defend
unaligned
The air seems present in a chill
We decide to wrap
ourselves
instead
Eyes averted

This climate slowly
brings us
a point of view
In turn like knowing
Seamless
This climate surely
changes
What we pursue
This climate changes
stories

The smaller currents still disturb
Patient in the
passing and preserved
Memory fills the time

How do you count what’s unreturned?
Missing from the faces that recur
Memory of our prime


Slowly in the fall
Patient in the seizing
Stories to recall
Seldom to an end

This climate changes
slowly
What we pursue

This climate changes
surely

This climate changes
slowly
Our point of view

This climate changes
stories

This climate changes
surely
Our point of view

This climate changes
slowly
