Binaural Ambience - 2-CD Set

Available on CD at Amazon

Digital Downloads available on CD Baby

Digital Downloads coming soon.

Binaural Ambience will lull the listener into a meditative state with Binaural Beat frequencies. The technique involves a specific tone in one ear, and a slightly different tone in the other. The difference in the frequencies, when combined in the brain, is perceived as a frequency specific "beat.” The brain picks up on this frequency and "entrains" to it. This album targets certain brain states which are associated with deep meditation. Research into this technique has shown that it can produce, in the beginner with no meditative practice, a deeply meditative state usually only achievable through years of meditation. I have been using this technique personally for the last 18 years. I mention it in my book, The Path to Happiness and Wisdom, in the third chapter. There is much information available on the internet about this technique. One track, at 73 minutes, will target the "Alpha brain state," and then down into the deeply meditative "Theta brain state." This is a gently relaxing method. The other track, at 25 minutes is straight to the point for a quick descent into the Theta brain state. You should listen through headphones for the greatest effect.

Improv Piano: The Early Recordings - CD

Available on Amazon

Digital Downloads at CD Baby

I have decided that along with my greatest hits album, Bardish Music Past, I should also release a catalog of early recordings. Back from before I recorded multi-track songs. It's improv piano pieces, remastered. These tracks were recorded before I had a good understanding of the technicalities of the recording process. The remastering process consisted of adding reverb, EQ and leveling the volume properly. The occasional clipping is unavoidable and is one reason I switched to MIDI recording early on. It is only an extension to my catalog of music. Almost all the songs are previously unreleased, other than on self-burned and printed albums given to friends and family. These are from the earliest recordings from 2006-2008.

Contemplative Keys - CD

Available on CD Baby

Contemplative Keys. It is piano-centric. Minimalist. Serene. A little bit of ambient, a whole lot of piano and keyboards. A perfect album for the evening when you just need to sit back and relax. Soothing waves and mellow piano transport you to serenity with the first track, Clarity. Next, Dreaming Adagio brings in a somewhat rhythmic piece with a contemplative piano overlay, played on scratchy vinyl. The third track, A Walk in the Snow, presents a cathartic yet gentle exploration of cold piano. Then, continuing through the depths of winter, Sheltering in an Arctic Cave brings crystalline keys in a cold, protected, glacial crevice. Mysterious Broadcast is an introspective piece; minimal, yet full bodied. A cold rain inspires Midnight Storm, with its thoughtful piano moving forward into Morning Sun. Finally, the album concludes with Twelve Minutes of Mellow, minimalist piano. Contemplative Keys is a relaxing album that is sure to wind down a hectic day.

21st Century Bard - CD

Available on CD Baby

21st Century Bard begins with 125.36±0.41GeV, an electronic track of slow motion explosions of protons, colliding at nearly the speed of light. Then we traverse into a surreal, barren, cold, dark space with Dali-Esque Tundra in Darkness. Pushing through into the unknown... Highway Part II is a minimal atmosphere of galactic highway hypnosis. Next, Influx of Waves takes us on a journey along the shores of the universe. Quantum Escher and Jam bring the beat up a little before plunging into the oceanic sounds of Turquoise Depths. Then a segue into the fluid soundscape of Liquid Dynamics. To bring the album to a close, The Wind brings the waves of a minimal atmospheric steady breeze.

Under the Stars - CD

Available on CD Baby

Under the Stars is a weightless, free-flowing journey through ambient music, minimal electronic, environmental and abstract soundscapes. Under the Stars and Change of Pace have a downtempo-chillout quality, while Intro to Harmony, Sands of Time, That Time of Year and Expanded Ambiance are minimal in nature. The last track, Experimental Fluctuations is a Dali-esque, experimental ambient soundsphere. A very soothing album for very hectic times.

Harmonic Motion - CD

Available on Amazon

Digital Downloads at CD Baby

Harmonic Motion consists of minimal yet complex soundscapes, interwoven with a couple of instrumental compositions. The track, Comedies and Tragedies, is an energetic, festive piano piece, dedicated to the late Robin Williams. Countryside is a great mellow instrumental guitar song. Liquid Dynamics is a wonderfully minimal, atmospheric soundscape with subtle complexities.

So sit back, close your eyes and enjoy the soundsphere of "Dreamscapes."

Ambient Alien Atmospheres - CD

Available on CD Baby

Ambient Alien Atmospheres paints a picture of an other worldly, ancient temple. Just as the name suggests, this album is several ambient alien atmospheres that tells a story of a yearly alien process, the reasons for which are left to the imagination.

Down to Earth - CD

Available on CD Baby

"Down to Earth," my second ambient album, is my first all multi-track album. It starts out ambient, and progresses towards tribal-ambient and techno-tribal. The long drones are relaxing and the grooves in mid-album are trance inducing. It winds down and finishes with a light, airy, ambient atmosphere. Recording this album has taught me a lot about music. My future projects will build on this knowledge. Great things are to come!

Looking Back to the Beginning - CD

Available on CD Baby

My First music release. Looking Back to the Beginning is an elegant portrayal of emotions. Bringing up the imagery of childhood memories, the music envisions such things as clouds and primary colors; this mixed with the melancholies of loss and the love from within. The music entangles Victorian Era piano with raw emotion, in some songs. The melodies tend to blend beautiful music with rough sounding combinations of notes. The songs show the love and joy of life, our missteps and clumsy ways, and the childlike, but wise souls within us all.
