Lost Landscapes

Lost Landscapes is a love letter to the first wave of shoegaze six-string pioneers, the guitars caterwaul in-collision with cascading waves of reverberation and acrobatic atmospherics. Focusing lessons learned through game audio and channeled through effects pedals then woven into sinuous threads of blossoming guitar leads that mess with the flow of time. These songs channel the pure expression of spontaneous composition and improvisation into a collection of ambient guitar work from my fingertips to speaker-cone. After years of electronics and pedalboard experimentation, these songs are the result of a lifetime of trickery and cultivation of eternal tone.

Over 80 minutes of spontaneous guitar composition, rippling-with-waves of effects pedal manipulation, bilious clouds of feedback, and laser-sharp tendrils of sonic-storytelling. Recorded in two passes of improvised experimentation, minimally edited and post-processed, then mastered by Heba Kadry at Timeless Mastering, these sound sculptures harness hi-fidelity emotions channeled like a lightning-rod straight to your heart.

The Butterfly's View

This album is set to take the listener on a journey. Undulating flute, effected and liting, over top a sparse drum pattern & orchestral waves of sampled strings leading the charge. Wild guitar feedback of 2Voophs sprawling outward from organized chaos and the fire of first contact. The titular Butterfly's View, where flute plays the role of the butterfly as it moves through a pummeling urban landscape showered with foriegn noise and outbursts. Was it all a Dream?
