Mostly known as a mouthy drummer I have spent time making music by myself, mostly for myself, since i was 18. It started with recording drums to cassette on a boom box, then to a tascam port-2, then after 3 of those a zoom digi four track then computers happened and editing got weird. I'm about to go back to just drums on cassette because really, it was easier. Influenced by a range of sounds including but not limited to the hum of rattling windows to the clicking of a lamp switch, about-to-break dubs of Unwound's second tape to overpriced Brahms CDs, cop sirens, discordant refrigerators, laughter, and empty beds. its in there.

evening table clearing dream (repeated 3 times)
watching a baby dream
i love you and hate you and every note in between:i'm not good enough for you(again)

you just got a love letter
