About

I am one of those who went to art school but instead got into music. In 2003 I started a sound art netlabel called Webbed Hand Records (webbedhandrecords.com) which at the present time offers over 200 free downloadable albums of ambient and experimental music. It is a very shoestring operation, not for profit, with contributions from donors helping to cover the expenses of keeping this mission alive.

I'm involved in the following recording projects: Saluki Regicide, Djinnestan, Akashic Crow's Nest, Rowboat Magicians, Tree Helicopter, Drone Wallah, Ice Guild Kaiser and assorted things in my own name and as part of collaborations. I'm starting to lose track of my discography but I'm sure it's passed 50 albums, not including compilations. Maybe by the time I reach 80 albums I'll have learned how to play some actual instruments. ;)

This account will function for me as a scratch pad for works in progress and things that don't fit into my other projects.

    I am really enjoying this. I like how the toy piano & glockenspiel parts are panned hard left and right, and the reverb on them is very pleasing.

    this little calm in the middle really contributes to the symmetry, and also feels like the eye of a hurricane.

    Google Translate is what I used, and I found the results very clear (well, before I used effects on them), though the French sounded better to my ears than the English.
