Music

This page is a repository for many of the musical projects I’ve embarked on under various names since I began twiddling around with Ableton Live in 2008. Much of my musical output in the early days came from exploriations with a variety of synthesizers, eurorack modules, digital audio softwares, and from studying different production techniques (and much of it still does!). Most of this content lived on Soundcloud for the longest time, but in the interest of divesting myself from profit-driven platforms that have taken a turn for the worst, I’m offering it all up here, for free, under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.

If you’d like to support my music, or just hear my more cohesive musical endeavors, please visit my Bandcamp. I also occasionally upload a DJ set to Mixcloud, though I’m beginning to livestream more and more of my sets to Twitch.

  • Shruthi XT SMR4 First Noodle Shruthi XT SMR4 First Noodle
    This demo is just a noodle of the XT control surface and SMR-4 filter. I tried to capture some of the squelchy and fat characteristics of this particular board. I plan on using a 4PM filter eventually in the XT, just have to build it first! The sound is straight from the output of the Shruthi into my MOTU interface. The Shruthi is being sequenced by a MIDI-enabled KORG Monotribe. Enjoy! DIY, Mutable Instruments, Shruthi, digital, jam, monophonic 04/29/2014
