New Else Song – 2012-04-26

April 29th, 2012

I wrote and recorded a new song for Else this week. It, like most of the other Else tunes, has the clever name of the date it originated. I’m really hitting my stride with the Else songwriting technique, and I really hope we find the rest of the bandmates soon. Listen to the new song at »

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 »

Else Website is Live

The website for Else is now up. We created the simple site to start drumming up some interest and to make finding new talent a bit simpler. The playlist shows the songs we’ve kept from the original 40 or so tracks. Take a listen at »

I founded Else in 2010 with the guitarist from Effigy and A Life Elided. We wrote and recorded nearly 40 tracks, eventually honing in on a really exciting style which combines ambient post-rock sounds, aggressive metal riffs, electronic influences, and extended chords. We are currently looking for more band members to complete the line up.

A Life Elided

August 15th, 2005

A Life Elided began in the summer of 2005 as a side project with the guitarist from Effigy. We had so many unused song ideas and finally realized a good way to finish them. By using digital drums, a heavy compliment of background effects, and melodic synthesizers with the recorded guitar and bass parts, we were able to create a new style for ourselves. The project continues to serve as a way for otherwise unused or off-style band ideas to see the light of day. Check out »

May 15th, 2002

I founded Effigy in 2002 while in high school. I wrote most of the material, played drums, managed the band, and performed occasional guitar and cello duties. We were mainly active in the summers in between school years, and produced a few recordings. In the summer of 2005 we spent a week recording in my basement, though vocals were never finished. The group disbanded in 2008, but all of the 2005 recording can be heard at »
