For the last several months I’ve been working on some music. It’s a weird collection of stuff, but I think some of it is worth a listen. It’s primarily electronic and almost 99.9% instrumental, with just a few vocal samples thrown in. I believe my favorite piece is Traces, which is a 17 minute ambient piece I composed using sounds I recorded in nature.

I hope you like it as much as I’ve enjoyed making it!

Some of the action is downright jaw dropping and some of it makes you wish you had armrests to grip because even though there’s safety equipment, at times it just looks like someone’s career could end if they made a misstep. That being said, I’ve never seen a more confident and athletic group of performers. Yes, this was my first Cirque show.
