Solace Solace
Solace is a work created using sound analysis and re-synthesis techniques. The source materials are from the alto saxophone performance of Dr. Jan Berry Baker.

The idea of this project was to create a long-form ambient work that would be highly immersive and engaging for close listening but would also create an atmospheric quality at lower volume levels. The sound of the music is continuously renewed – there is no repetition of any sonic element or gesture throughout the ent...more
Folio - Volume Two Folio - Volume Two
The Folio series features various miscellaneous compositions that develop out of my general practice. These works are the result of explorations into the modeling of sounds and musical structures that typically result in more elaborated and concentrated works. In some ways they are sketches or compositional studies. Some of these experimental pieces, composed on an on-going basis, turn out to be more than mere exercises and are able to stand on their own as separate compositions. The Folio serie...more

Drawing Voices Drawing Voices
Honestly, can a music concept get more interesting than Drawing Voices? We doubt it. But beyond its theoretical aims, the music contained is also awesome: as organic as it is electronic; mellow and minimal at times; with moments of obvious volume-push abrasiveness. This self-titled release is an appropriate stepping stone for the Double-H Noise family. And since it’s a new year—we at Hydra Head Industries enjoy congratulating ourselves—let’s say that said imprint is respo...more

Four Pentagrams - Paeans - Granites Four Pentagrams - Paeans - Granites
Rudhyar’s music combines rich, Scriabinesque harmonies with a spontaneous, improvisatory quality reminiscent of Debussy. Commentary on Rudhyar’s music tends to emphasize harmony and chord construction to the relative neglect of melody and rhythm. The Pentagrams, however, feature long melodic lines that provide a sense of direction and context to the rich harmonies. These lines are expressive as well as structural, sometimes branching out into successions of short melodic motives. The...more
