I never thought I’d be playing the modular synth in a barber shop. Nor, did I ever think I’d get a haircut like this. But, here we are. A lot of people came by to watch and listen as [...]
Here are some places you can hear my music on Teh Interwebz… https://soundcloud.com/dibcadbu is my original home for music postings. I rotate new stuff thru here and take it down when [...]
Friday, May 3rd from 5pm to 10pm, I will be playing out on the mighty Eurorack for the teaming throngs of humanity at the Pontiac Art Crawl. Come hunt me down in the Downtown P for some [...]
I’ve put the ARP2600 in regular rotation as a voice in my pieces. So, here are four recent pieces, one flowing from the last. The original jam… The second run-thru… Third [...]
I will be playing to the public masses at 10:15 with my buddy Eric. We have been working on making sound together and came up with shenanigans like this: Here are the synth players: (video guys [...]
My good friend Michael Pfaendtner, produces a series web video about people who have found things that make them happy. I am lucky enough to be chosen for an episode.
I must be livin’ right. My fb friend Tom Wilson has radio show on a college radio station and invited me to bring my gear down for a two hour show. I captured the stream from WHFR on my PC, [...]
A long live jam. I’ll call this piece “Stereo Spectacular.” It uses a bunch of clips from stereo demonstration records from the 1950’s and 1960’s playing off a [...]
I am pleased to say I’ve published an album. “modular” is 6 pieces from the past 9 months or so. Look on these streamers: I have a real big people’s barcode and everything.

Right on the heels of “Sirius,” I made “Circuit.” Once again, the ARP was one of 6 voices in this piece. No keyboard this time, because there was enough going on with the [...]
Here is “Sirius,” a live recording. When I do these I’ll rehearse a while and then record and improvise. The Beatstep Pro is the center of this universe, and as you can see in [...]
I started “january” the same way I start all of my pieces. I got a sequence stuck in my head, so I turned on the synthesizer and programmed the notes into a sequencer, then added [...]
So, yeah, I got some play on Brainvoyager’s Electronic Fusion podcast. Listen here.
I just discovered a great podcast. Brainvoyager is the work of Jos Verboven. The name covers exactly what Jos’ music stands for: a voyage within the listener’s brain, thus turning him or [...]
I got a new audio interface that let’s me record 8 simultaneous voices from the rack into Reaper. There, I can move things around and add effects as needed. I wanted to use Mutable [...]
Here’s an experiment to see how my machine would fare as a drum machine. The Beatstep Pro is a great drum machine, and I have a lot of noise making modules. I used an Optomix with some [...]
It’s gotten to the point anymore, that when I play around on the synthesizer, I almost always record the output, because I never know when something amazing will come out and may not ever [...]
Occasionally I wake up and decide it’s time to make some music. This is one of those times. With a general idea in my head, I’ll sit down with the modular and start fiddling knobs and [...]
I was fortunate to meet Suzanne Ciani last April and I’m just now posting the photos. She appeared at the MOCAD gallery in Detroit and she played a great hour-long set in quadraphonic [...]
Here’s one I really like. Beatstep Pro controlling two voices, the SEQ-02 (a sequencer I normally hate) controlling another one (with filter cutoff happening semi-randomly courtesy of a [...]
And so far, it seems like a winner… polyrhythm drums are nice and arpeggiators for the sequencers will be very handy. If you click the cheat sheet up there, you can download a pdf for your [...]
I woke up and thought I needed to make a song from scratch. So this is it. One take, no overdubs. BeatstepPro, Prizma, Qunexus, Dervish, Braids, E350, Grains, Z3000, Polivoks VCF, Doepfer A-125 [...]
