Instruments I Play

I can play the piano to some extent.
But in all honesty, I'm pretty incompetent. :)

Software I Use

Ableton Live, Reason, and other miscellaneous plugins.

Hardware I Use

Akai Pro LPD8, M-Audio Keystation 49 II, Scarlett 2i2, two Shure SM57 mics, and a rather expensive computer. I borrow gear from time to time.
It's a minimal setup, sure, but I can pack it up in 5 minutes.

Listening To Right Now

"Over There, It's Raining" by Nils Frahm
"Ralome" by Plaid, Benet Walsh
"Cherry Moon" by Lorn
"Fade Into You (feat. Steffaloo)" by Stumbleine
"Kepesh" by Arms and Sleepers

10 Favourite Albums

Too many favorites. Here's a few:
"Dummy" by Portishead
"Spaces" by Nils Frahm
"Nothing Else" by Lorn
"Emergence" by Trifonic

My Influences / Fav Artists

It's 2019! Yep, still listening to downtempo, trip-hop, cinematic, and otherwise experimental music.

I always love a track with exceptional sound design and/or a unique "style," if you will. :)

Specifics: Trifonic, Lorn, Stumbleine, Odd Nosdam, Boards of Canada, Tycho, Bonobo, General Elektris, Múm, Nils Frahm, Portishead, John Powell, Jeremy Soule, Kodomo, Little People... the list never ends.

Classic rock and jazz also make the rounds.

My Music Sounds Like

...a wide assortment of genres. I drift toward downtempo/trip-hop/hip-hop tunes, in general. I am very heavily influenced by my favorite artists, which are listed right above this section.
Of course, there are plenty of examples on my SoundCloud page. :)
