SineRider's News

Posted by SineRider - May 22nd, 2010

Hey everyone,
I just put up a preview of Long Way Home on my bandcamp page:

Best described as atmospheric ambient music with some twists. The light melodies of each songs swirl around with static ambiance and pads. With the use of a tape recorder and digital tape effects, the songs have a feeling of depth.

Tape Werms
Like Dreams
One Last One
Nostalgia 2

Go on over to the bandcamp page and listen to Nostalgia, Tape Werms, and One Last One, or check out the song here on Newgrounds
One Last One

Get the entire album for free on the 26th of May.

Also thanks to Mich for supplying the album photo again :)

Hey everyone,

This is a space inspired mini EP. Minimal ambient music in the style of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, and Steve Roach. Check it out if you like ambient music, or you need some music to chill to.

Hey everyone,
My new EP is up for download over at the BFW Recordings website. Here is a link:

Check it out, it's free. If you like acoustic and indie music, you may like this. Here is some info from the site:
The second release on BFW from SineRider is a less ambient affair than his last release, 'Binary Flowers'. 'December Embers' has guitars and singing and has much more of a post-rock feel to it. The warm ambience is still there, but this is fairly different.

1. The Finer Things of Lines
2. Much
3. A Walk
4. You're Fading
5. Light Cycle (Part 1)
6. Light Cycle (Part 2)
7. Ours
8. Your Hand In Mine
9. You Lose, Good Day Sir!
10. Memories Continue...

Taep + EP news

Posted by SineRider - December 24th, 2009

Got lazy and never got around to finishing uploading the album on bandcamp. Anyways here it is for free in any format you want. Enjoy and have a wonderful christmas.


The Watching Channel

Posted by SineRider - December 21st, 2009

Hey all,
Working on some projects lately. Not much news on the flash game I'm scoring with Axcho except a few prototypes. I am working on a new EP nearly finished and a full length album too. I plan on releasing the EP fairly soon, possible January or February.

The EP will be mostly acoustic and instrumental music. It's a bit different from my usual thing, but I still had a lot of fun with it. At the moment I have 9 songs that come down to about 27 minutes of music. I may possible release it free through BFW Recordings again. I emailed them, but yet to hear back from them yet.

Here is a demo of a track off the EP

The album is going to be more my thing rather than acoustic. At the moment I have 13 songs down for sure. They still need their finishing touches and what not. I may add more. I intertwined a lot of little ambient/minimal tracks in between the songs, which is always fun

Here is a song that will appear on the album

Alright, enough plugging for now

P.S. any one who is familiar with the animated movie The Snowman may enjoy this ;)

Update type thing

Posted by SineRider - October 1st, 2009

Hey everyone, EvilKris just released his flash game The Insanity. Over the past couple months I've contributed 2 songs to the game along with fellow NG audio artists Sorohanro and Varrin7. The game looks quite amazing, and I was happy to work with EvilKris on this. I look forward to working on a possible sequel to The Insanity.

My songs play through the entire game. It's the really atmospheric, creepy songs. I just upped the 2 songs for anyone is interested in hearing full quality or downloading.

2. In the Background

In other news, I've been working a few other projects with Axcho, who designs and programs, and Brontosaurus, who will be doing the art. I've worked with Axcho before on _dRive and I'm happy to be doing more projects with him again. Both guys are really talented. Axcho always comes up with really interesting game ideas, and Brontosaurus' pixely art is quite jaw-dropping. Anyone curious about the project should check out the blog.

Most of my personal music projects are on hold for the moment, but I'd like to work on a new EP in a few months and possible release it with BFW Recordings again.

Well, that's all I got to say for now. :)

Check out "The Insanity"

Posted by SineRider - August 17th, 2009

I've decided I'm going to release my album "The Watching Channel" as a pay as you want over the service bandcamp. It is an 10 track album clocking in at 36:40. It is made up of material started over a year ago and been worked on and off (then sat on my harddrive for months) So I figured I shouldn't let it go to waste.

Also when you download the album you will get 5 bonus tracks you may or may not have heard, either way they will be high quality. :)

I'll post a link when I get the tracks up and make a post when it is released.

I made a video for my new song, check it out :)
