Very cool and grats. What is the format? I mean, like how would we access it?

From my understanding it should hit the following digital stores: Apple Music / iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud.

I will be signing up for the paid service for my next release (Turn It Off) because I think it has viral potential, and I will want it everywhere.

EDIT: I forgot to add that this first one is awful. Don’t buy it. haha



Now that I have a machine that can keep up: here's a little Sunday afternoon finger drumming practice. If you're in to that sorta thing.




Out of curiosity I wanted to see what the webcam would look like and it’s about what I expected. Choppy and blown out. Fits my vibes




I'm just loading up random kits and going crazy. Pretty fun, but I should probably start developing some technique exercises. I think my favorite thing about finger drumming is there's no right way to do it.

I was messing around with duplicating that autotune sound. I tried not to put too much on but now that I know how to do it I kinda wanna put a lot on

Sauce it up! Know what I’m sayin



I'm liking the more bizarre direction of the last two. Moody, odd, and atmospheric. I really like the intent and hope you explore more stuff like this.

Woooo. That's pretty cool. I need to hear David Bowie's voice over that. Or at least a smokey saxophone.


I recommend listening to the song, A Small Plot of Land by Bowie. In fact, take on the entire album, Outside, if you're bored. Great weird stuff that might inspire.

Thanks, I really appreciate it. I’ve been having a hard time trying to make anything since my gramps passed. Everything feels like I’m throwing **** against the wall, so I decided to embrace that as a production trait.*

There’s a lot of small revolving parts with effects that I layered together to get a 8bar backing track. Then I merged it all, stretched to 16bars, added some more stuff, merged it to get a 2nd backing track, and then stretched it to 32bars to lay down the piano and I played it how I felt: ****ty.

Some of the previous stuff I’ve made was made in the same way but I did fewer things and was going for a cleaner sound. This time I wanted something that captured the **** feelings trapped in my head.

I have plans to do heavier lifting in December to flesh out a longer project, and it is probably going to be pretty similar to these. First holiday season without gramps. I’m gunna be a wreck and I think that’s already reflecting in my work, so I suspect my first longer project is going to come from a dark place. Anything to keep me busy.

Throwing sh*t at the wall is my MO. I used to love listening to early Residents albums for some encouragement, knowing that they made a cult-friendly career out of drunk instrumentation, low fidelity production, and uber bizarre experimentation. Your songs reminded me a bit of that. A polarizing sound for normies, but I mean that as a compliment.

I'm so sorry to read about your grandpa. May he rest in peace.

Yeah, I have a polarizing sound for sure.

And I totally will take that as a compliment.

And I appreciate that. They say sorrow drives good art, but I’m just trying to stay busy.

I tried a lot of new stuff on this track:
