About

I'm a graphic designer, artist and musician. PYXL8R is the name I use for my solo musical projects when I'm not performing with my band, Brainstatik. Often recorded in the middle of the night, each session usually is a spontaneous burst of electronic synthesizer-based long-form improvisation. Sometimes atmospheric and dense with unusual sonic textures, these pieces are usually recorded live with few overdubs and minimal post-production tweaking. Hardware-based synths and software-based sound sources are intermingled throughout, with Korg and Native Instrument products dominating as my favorite noise-makers. Listen with headphones in a dark room for maximum immersion! Enjoy!

SPECIAL NOTE: I don't want to discourage people from following my music here, but if your own style is so far removed from the genres I'm interested in, don't expect me to follow you in return. I only follow musicians whose work I honestly enjoy listening to, so don't take it personally if I don't reciprocate. I do listen to a sampling of every new follower's music. But I also notice when a person has a disproportionate ratio of follows to followers (like those of you with 2000 follows and 100 followers), and I do understand that your intention is to publicize your music. I totally get that! So continue to follow as many artists as you desire (including me if you wish)... maybe you're tastes ARE actually that diverse, and that's great! However, I can't realistically listen to such a huge flood of new music each day. So I limit my follows to those artists in whom I'm truly interested. Thanks for reading this, and keep creating wonderful and diverse music for the SoundCLoud community!

GEAR: Click on the song title to get a detailed description of the hardware and software used in the creation of each of the songs. I know that some of you are interested in the processes behind the music, so I'm happy to document how these tracks came together technically. There are a LOT of different tools and techniques applied in the creation of each song (I like to experiment), so drop me a line if you have a question!
