Nascent 18:04
Egress 14:56


Released on Audiotalaia
Ash blows away in the wind while the physical structure stays tied to the ground. The title of the work, Nascent/Egress, refers to this changing constitution of matter. Each composition moves through different moments leading up to these points. The transient nature of existence can be felt in waves of fear, joy, euphoria, pain and acceptance. With this in mind I think about the music as an environment that the listener is moving through. It carves paths, casts shadows, and creates places in the changing landscape of life.

My work is process based, beginning with samples gathered and manipulated digitally, then dubbed down to analog tape; eroding away music, field recordings and other found media. Effectively reconstituting the quality and predictability of the digital source material. The combinations used in this approach examine the nature of the chosen media, how it is stored, distributed and ultimately how it evolves over time. One sound’s initial intention begets an all-together new purpose by setting points of failure and degradation. His final compositions are warm, textured, emotive environments.
