Making music is fun.
Music is my religion, or drug, or whatever. For me, the act of writing music is sacred and cathartic. I live for that feeling of discovering a melody or a rhythm or a perfect sample. There is magic in the process. The result does not matter nearly as much as the path it took to get there.
I believe all sounds can be musical, from Beltway traffic horns to crumpling a piece of paper. It's all about circumstance and how the content is framed and edited. I believe sampling is just as legitimate a form of composing as sitting at a keyboard, but only when the recontextualization lends new meaning to the source material. All music is about borrowing and reshaping.
I believe some of the best music comes about by accident. In my experience intuition has always trumped theory. I believe in attention to detail, because it is the little things that make it great.
I am a composer limited only by having too many interests and shifting focus. I am a pluralist and an idealist. I believe that because so many forms of music exist simultaneously, everyone should appreciate them all simultaneously. Genre distinctions and artist comparisons are destructive and pointless. Music is just organized sound.
That said, the music I have posted here spans my entire career of composition. The order doesn't matter. Some tracks have beats and others do not. Some tracks are melodic and some are noisy. Some tracks are far out and others are close in. Listen to one at random. My only goal is that at least one will move you.
