About:

The hardly anticipated follow up to my shenanigans on my first album. The album continues in my tradition of creating music my sister does not enjoy. The music is a high strung instrumental brand which is vaguely jazzy and ever-moving.

About:

During winter break during my last year at college, I gave myself the challenge of finishing a complete album within the two weeks I had available. I finished 8 songs. Good enough! All songs were recorded after 2 am and powered by vanilla soymilk and hummus courtesy of my mother’s fridge. All songs “go up and down”. I stay true to my word.

About:

I don’t believe I actually published this in 2005, but the music was made around then. I was just some kid messing around with Fruity Loops. Posted for posterity, not for its technical or creative merits.
