Hello NG,

It's been awhile and I have some new music released. Over the summer I worked on a 6 track EP to be released for the label Sun Sea Sky. After a few months it's finally being released. Check it out on bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, or many of the other online distributors.


Or listen to a sample from my Soundcloud page:



1. Exposure

Hey NG,

I just released a new EP yesterday of some synth heavy tunes. Check out the free download on my bandcamp page, or stream it over on my soundcloud page.

Or check out one of the tracks here on newgrounds.

Orbs is a handful of synth-based tracks I've created in the last few weeks heavily inspired by classic electronic music. Each track stemmed from small melodic fragments created on my Korg Volca Keys. The majority of the synths on the EP were made with the Volca as well.


  1. Hello (2:56)
  2. Blaster (3:20)
  3. Slower (3:40)
  4. Pulsewave (3:56)
  5. Ok, Soda (3:28)
  6. Analog Dream (1:20)
  7. PCM (5:24)

Hello NG,
I put together a little collection of my unreleased music into a album for download over at my bandcamp page

A lot of these songs are ones I started with plans to include them on an album somewhere or just for fun. Some date back to 2009 and a few from earlier this year. I tried my best to make it flow together nicely as an album. It's not just a collection of tracks with huge contrast. There is a little over an hour of music and 15 tracks.

Worn Out Tape
Ghost Town
Fall Into Place
Someday I'll Be
Midnight Lullaby
Variations 3
Twinkle, Twinkle
Seeking Fog
Geiger Counselman
Another One Down IV
Possibly, One Day

Total Time: 67:45 Minutes

Lakewaves Vol. 1 Album Release

Just put together a little mini EP called Cold Dreams from some material I recorded yesterday.

Check out the free download on my bandcamp page
Or check out the track Cold Dreams here on NG

Power Source
Water Cycles
Cold Dreams
Karma Loop

Every sound was made by my guitar, with varying FX pedal chains. I tried to experiment with different chains I might not normally do, such as having distortion>delay>2nd delay>2nd delay pedal> to amp. I also experimented with different recording techniques. I actually recorded my amp rather than doing a direct input.

Hey guys,

I finally got around to releasing a short EP side-project, Hooting Everywhere. I wrote and recorded these six songs over the last 3-4 months. I took inspiration from a lot of my favorite bands such as American Football, Mineral, and Sharks Keep Moving. If you're into that kind of stuff check it out.


I tried recording different instruments besides just electric guitar, so you'll hear violin, ukulele, acoustic guitar, and mandolin.

Hey guys, just released an EP under my chiptune alias Bleepy Bloopy. I've been writing a lot of chiptunes lately and decided to put together a little free EP.

Check it out

Bleepy Bloopy EP is a short album of chiptune music created using Famitracker, a tracker based on the NES soundchip. Each track explores a different style, some more videogame inspired than others.

Having only recently learned how to use a tracker, this album was a learning experience for me. Each song I tried to use different techniques.

1. Polybius
2. MAXin
3. Up Up
4. Bladewalker
5. Plurpe
6. Ninjural Selection
7. The Roundup

Just released my newest album "Shifting Colors". If you're interested in ambient, downtempo, shoegaze, with a touch of hiphop check it out.


Over the past few months I put together this album. I attempted to make something more cohesive sounding than some of my other releases. It's also probably much more accessible than my more experimental ambient music as well. Included is a wonderful remix of one of tracks by Hyperbox (amaterasu on NG). Big thanks to him for the remix and helping me out with the album in general

1. Like You
2. Let's Just Stay (Right Here)
3. Solid Tube
4. Droppe
5. Go To Sleep
6. Saturday
7. Shifting Colors
8. Steve's Bike (Hyperbox Detour)

Sample the album here on NG

My new ambient album "Spinning Circles" is out for download over at BFW Recordings and my bandcamp page. Check it out! c:

Spinning Circles is an exploration of sound timbre. Each song presents a small motif that's repeated and built upon. Almost every sound was recorded or run through a handheld cassette recorder, then compiled and manipulated into what you hear.

1. Snowfall
2. They Look
3. Bowed
4. Dusted
5. Longer Now
6. Sine Cone
7. Where I Go
8. Doubt It
9. Bloop Waltz
10. Spinning Circles
11. Lofi Bossa

Check out the video for the track Spinning Circles as well

In other news, I have a short EP almost ready for a side project. It will be primarily guitar/bass/drumset based rather than electronic. In the style of Aerial M, Castevet, and American Football. No idea when it will be ready though
