This is probably my most thematically interesting and coincidentally longest piano piece so far. It may actually be more of a series of songs like chapters in a story, but I leave them together since it was originally played on the spot in one session. I'm also finally becoming more comfortable improvising both hands at once and switching fluidly between keys without really thinking about it. ... »

Accidentally played this randomly at first (literally had my eyes closed and didn't know what key I was in). I actually forgot it for a few days before sitting down to record it. The song's pretty simple to play and somewhat repetitive, but I like it. It has a nostalgic and dream-like feel to it, like you're always on a journey of sorts but never quite finding the place you belong, a longi... »

Print of the Autodidactic I logo in 3D. This is both my first time doing 3D modeling and doing 3D printing. This specific print is in bronze with patina to blacken it, though there are plenty in other metals and plastic. Yes, it spins. Available in Shapeways here but only in plastic (only we get the metal ones ).... »

Experimenting with eastern instruments more. Some inspiration from Utarra-Kuru's East Wind album for the koto and some inspiration in the opening flute melody from Sega's games. The rest is improvisation. It was much more peaceful in my head though; I don't know why it ended up sounding sad and dark. I blame Halloween coming up at the time I was composing this. Originally I was going to ma... »

Just a short, simple, admittedly repetitive tune that's been stuck in my head this past week. Makes me think of traveling or exploring the world a lot, as well as the anticipation and hopes that come with it. The first half gives you the sense of the initial dream and disappointment that comes with reality; the second half is the light at the end of the tunnel. Lots of frustration for me perso... »

I really liked the design of the business cards I made for my filmmaking group, but the group has not been active for years. Decided to go ahead and use the design for myself instead. Of course the original always looks more consistent, but it works I think. The card includes works from the rest of my film group so this is a joint work/montage. »

I've been wanting to remake this song for a long time... or at least the climax of it. The Edirol VST I used in the original Darker Stormy just wasn't strong enough for the climax to me. However, it took me a long time to find higher quality samples (mostly East West) that would match the overall sound I wanted to keep from the original. The new song here essentially starts with a remix of... »

Short melody I've had stuck in my head for a long time. Put it down in notes back in September 2011 but never really got around to orchestrating it much. Only recently figured out how to play it with chords on the piano but not sure how to bring it out more (it's just the main melody with few supporting themes). The intro is also pretty boring - not sure how to improve the sound or melody the... »

Seems like I'm getting some inspiration back. Thought of this one while sitting bored and hungry during discussion section a couple weeks back. Forgot the song for a while before I could come up with a draft of it. It seems like a mix of "Trickling Winds" and "Raindrops". However, this deviates a lot from the style of my older songs; most obvious is the more heavy use of choirs and percussi... »

Had to hand-draw everything, make the music, make the voices - first time animating and also first time making everything. Am pretty proud of it. Nope, that's not my real voice, but it IS me speaking. Just lots of filters added over. Music I made in FL Studio - pre... »
