With a full band finally, Else is writing, recording, and looking for gigs. We’ve produced two at-home recordings at uploaded them to our new website and Bandcamp page. We’re recording more this weekend and we’re hoping to have our first show soon.

New A Life Elided Song – Skew

December 21st, 2012

An unused metal song, some slap bass, and some dub step elements, throw it all together and call it a techno song. Yet another scrapped Else song has been turned into something for A Life Elided. Check out “Skew” on the A Life Elided website »

New A Life Elided Song – In It Now

December 10th, 2012

As I’m burning some PTO time before the end of the year (use it or lose it), I decided to re-purpose an unused Else track for A Life Elided.

Of the North is Recording

November 20th, 2012

Of the North began recording a 5 song EP over the weekend. I laid down cello tracks on Sunday morning, and everything is sounding great. Expect the fully mixed and mastered EP within the next couple of weeks!

Cello Recording with Every Day Use

October 26th, 2012

Way back in high school I recorded a cello track for a friend’s punk band. I really enjoyed the song and recording this was one of my first experiences in a real sound studio. I’ve had the mp3 in regular rotation at home for a long time now, but only recently did I find the song online (and subsequently found out what the track’s actual title is). Anyway, hear my cello contribution to “My Conclusion” on Every Day Use’s Last FM page »

New Else Song – 2012-07-09

July 12th, 2012

I’m quite proud of this new song I wrote and recorded for Else. This track really displays the metal influences while maintaining the strong bass lines and electronic layers that have defined the Else sound. I’m really proud of the key changes in the bridge of this one. Take a listen on ElseTheBand.com »

Myst

April 28th, 2012

A post-rock soundtrack for a video tribute to the video game series, Myst. Electronic samples come from Absynth, and guitars were recorded on my ESP LTC EC1000 Deluxe using a Line6 POD X3 Live.

New A Life Elided Song – We’re There

April 15th, 2012

“We’re There” was originally an Else song, but was deemed to not truly be in the Else style. I rerecorded the guitar and bass parts with some different sounds, added new layers of drums and fx, and then finally wrote a melody over the top. It’s the first new ALE song in quite some time, and it’s good to be back. Take a listen on aLifeElided.net »

Solo Guitar Work

June 16th, 2011

I’ve always enjoyed playing fingerstyle guitar and have written a handful of tunes in the style. Many of these recordings were done when I only owned a cheap electric guitar, so I plan on going back and rerecording nearly everything with the Breedlove I purchased in 2010.

All You Can Eat – Medley

June 6th, 2011

Medley of music used for All You Can Eat. The music aims to capture the extraordinarily outdated style and thinking of the film’s characters through 80s synth pop and spaghetti western dramatic music.
