About

Ghost Monkey is music for dream sequences. Mostly. Though people tell me it has a lot of other uses, too..

YEAH YEAH. WHAT ARE THESE?

FUTURE RUINS is my latest album, out in iTunes, BeatPort, Spotify etc., it's pretty much Space Ambient – but I like to think it's the good kind. Lots of found sound, droning drones and old-fashioned melody things, quite a bit of sound design hidden in there, too. Check it out.

BOXY MUSIC, is a bunch of small melody vignettes. Because making my next Big Albums (more on those later) started feeling like work, them being densely layered and processed, I started relaxing by doing little melodies during workday and evenings. Boxy is the result, simple childish melodies for young listeners. Not bad for working on your coloring book! Buy it or just listen to it here, neither way breaks my bank.

THE CAVE is my neo-non-classical (or Bad Ambient, I dunno) diversion. it's far from easy listening. I got myself a bow and mallets and started bowing stuff, decided that making a minimal cave exploration turned sci-fi -soundtrack sounds like fun. It has been, for me, you can make up your own mind. You can buy it on Bandcamp. If you do, I promise to waste all your money on Etsy stuff.

FUTURE CITIES is my forthcoming opus :D Think of a downtempo sci-fi soundtrack. It was supposed to be a little record about the future that science once promised us, like eight songs. Don't let anybody tell me that I have problems sticking to my plans, ok?

... cause I can do that for you. FUTURE DREAMS is the brightest timeline, the warmest of the Future records.

Then there's Tea For Miss Yamaha (2001), my 300+ gram vinyl downtempo steal... I mean, sample-fest. Still very much loved among lovers of such things.

After that, I did some ambient albums and fun beats. You can guess which LP:s are which, they're all in my sets.

You can find almost all the previous albums for free here or on the website. Except the Zen Bound soundtracks, you have to go to zenbound.com for those.

I make a lot of music and am far from consistent - usually, however, it's slowish, perhaps dark and muffled, sometimes optimistic too. Right. Anyway, I dislike almost all genres and thus am hard to stick into one. That might show. Also, I used to sample most sounds off old records, now I don't, and am dangerously in love with everything that goes Pling, Plonkk, Klongg or BREEP. That does show.

I'll be adding new material whenever I have the time (trying to sort out life, making games and all that is surprisingly time-consuming). Feel free to comment, love, hate, mail, etc. Most of all: enjoy.
