i've been playing music all my life, and recording it on the computer
since 1997. this page will collect a bunch of music i've made over the
years (of varying quality) and tries to create a timeline of which
bands i was in.

a lot of this music exists on backups, scattered cd-rs, zip disks, in
the wayback machine, etc. so it will be added as i find and upload it.

music i made on my own:

⊛ demonolatry (1999)
  voices, keyboards, demonic possession.
  created this remix for a friend's ep. most of the music
  comes from the song, but is treated/distorted/cut up.

⊛ white room mix (2000)
  circuit-bent furby + self-help tape.
  created for an remix contest, though it only
  featured a few tiny samples from the "original".

⊛ red rover (2011)
  garageband instruments and effects.
  simple lofi videogame music for a ludum dare game
  of the same name.

⊛ wrong coat (2005)
  roland sh-101, realistic mg-1, casio sk-1, effects pedals.
  created to accompany the climax of kate's film "the wrong coat".
  has a really nice creepy, slinky, lounge vibe.
  cuts off kind of abruptly (it fades in the film).

⊛ cannibals on i-95 (2005)
  little song using casio drum samples and sine waves.
  originally posted to

⊛ throng (2002)
  distorted, cut up remix of a pop song.

  [ more to be added as i find it ]

including solo projects like retrograde 8, doktor moculus, etc.)

   keyboards. brian contributed vocal samples and attitude.

   the line-up.
