I record and produce a lot of music.
Although my musical career had a solid start in jazz, I branched out and create a fiercely eclectic variety of music. For years my music has been primarily hosted on Bandcamp, which is a fantastic service. As a part of this IndieWeb project, however, I’m working to centralize all my online activities into this one place. To that end, here is my discography!*
To see all of my projects that are music related, albums, EPs, hardware, code, and more, check out my main music page.
Search my discography! You can enter genres/styles, instruments, song names, person names, etc.
