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 »

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 The music aims to capture the extraordinarily outdated style and thinking of the film’s characters through 80s synth pop and spaghetti western dramatic music.

All You Can Eat – Title Theme

June 6th, 2011

The over-the-top spaghetti western/80s glam metal and pop theme to the equally ridiculous film about a modern man with outdated fashion and delusional dreams of being a hot dog eating champion.


August 15th, 2010

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.

Solo Bass Work

May 16th, 2008

I really enjoy playing and extending the bass guitar, especially with big leaps, faster passages, and melodic playing. Here are some solo bass guitar pieces I’ve written and recorded over the years. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
