"Remember, information is not knowledge; knowledge is not wisdom; wisdom is not truth; truth is not beauty; beauty is not love; love is not music; music is the best."
-Frank Zappa

The more I explore the vast world of music, the more I realize how little I understand. I try to ignore the arbitrary boundaries of music and pay attention to what seems most important to me – the musicality and creative intention of the artists. The collection here is my recorded history of exploring music and attempts at sonic assemblage. Songs with a denote my favorite mixes. Enjoy!

The Freshening of Past Ideals

Listen / Download / Artwork

A deep wander into a hybrid land of psychedelic 60s/70s and the modern parodiable counterpart. The back room of a Rhythm Society event can get pretty cozy! The recorder stopped half way through the mix - so two parts.

A Son Picks the Sons

Listen / Download / Artwork

My father was the guitarist for the Bay Area psychedelic rock band “The Sons of Champlin”. The Sons are known for their loud horns and high-energy dance jams. Whenever I introduce someone to the group I almost always play one of their lesser known and quieter songs since I feel it’s easier to hear the brilliance of the song writing and musicianship when you’re not getting blasted. This mix is a compilation representing a quieter side of The Sons. The last track, Knickanick, is one of my all time favorite guitar tracks - noodley, psychedelic bliss :)
