"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!

In 1996 some friends and I created the Rhythm Society, a music focused community with the goal of creating a safe and intentional environment to dance and celebrate together. We have four major events a year falling on the solstices and equinoxes.

The Spring 2012 event was held on the U.S.S. Hornet, a historic aircraft carrier that fought in WWII, witnessed the atomic test at Bikini Atoll, and picked up the Apollo 11 capsule when it landed in the Pacific. It’s now a museum and event space. For this event I was asked to create the music vision and assemble the cast of DJs. The overall theme of the event was about the conflicting nature of war and our personal struggles to rationalize it. Musically, I wanted to provide an ego-less journey with plenty of room for introspection and some goofiness thrown in to keep spirits high.

I played the morning slot from 4:30 until 6am. The music primarily falls into the genre of tech house, with elements of world music and psychedelia scattered throughout. I hope you enjoy!

TechTwerp is a quiet mix of electronic music that skirts the edge between minimal techno and ambient music. The mix begins with Piano Magic’s sea shanty inspired “Haloween Boat”, and ends with my all time favorite Terry Riley piece “Poppy Nogood and the Phantom Band”.

Rhythm Society - Sensation

A magic night with the Rhythm Society. The music was focused and energized all night. Tribal house, afro house, and a little breakbeat towards the end.
