Reverend Honeybeard

A year ago, in the course of taking a writing course from the inimitable Shira E, I found myself assigned with making music as well as writing poetry. I bought a MIDI keyboard and some software and taught myself how to use Ableton Live, Logic, and a host of iOS music apps. The assignment included posting the music I made, and I felt shy about posting under my name, so I created a musical alter-ego, Reverend Honeybeard. After the class ended, the Good Reverend seemed to want to live on and soon was making an experimental/electronic/ambient album, posting in his oblique way to Twitter and Tumblr and now composing/recording and uploading 1 song a day every day for the month of March 2016.

Now That's What Your Parents Call Drone

It's finally here - the epic followup to 2012's Now That's What I Call Drone (previously in Projects and the Blue, with mentions in The Atlantic, Pitchfork and more.) This time out it's Now That's What Your Parents Call Drone. 16 drone/experimental takes on adult contemporary classics. Over an hour and a half of drone pop, deep hypnagogy, glitch weirdness and everything in between, all in service and reverence to Amy Grant, Air Supply, 10cc, Billy Ocean, et al. Featuring MeFi's own Theta States as CPI, yours truly as Vapor Lanes, and a whole host of other swell folks.

Now That's What I Call Drone: Vol. 1

With this compilation, the challenge was for musicians to create drone versions of Top 40 pop songs. The word 'drone' was to be interpreted by each artist as they saw fit. The results are varied, interesting, and pretty damn good. Pop drone psychic energy. (Yes, "Call Me Maybe" is in here.) [more inside]

Analogue: A Hate Story OST

I wrote the original soundtrack to Christine Love's Analogue: A Hate Story, a game about "transhumanism, traditional marriage, loneliness, and cosplay," among other things.

Lifelong EP

My solo project, Vapor Lanes, released an EP yesterday on the netlabel BFW Recordings. It's been described by various folks as "intense, grainy electronica" with "destroyed but beautiful shoegazey synths," like a "corroded M83."
