Music

I make lots of music!

I record albums, I compose commissioned pieces, I write film scores, I build instruments, I write code that makes music, and I perform.

This page lists everything musical I do; albums, musical coding, hardware, film scores, video games, instrument building, experiments, and more!

For a finer-grained search of my musical output, check out all my albums/releases here, or take a look at my other musical projects here.
