2010 - The Healing
After finishing Lycopods, I wasn't sure how to advance what I'd done. So I decided to look back. This release is a
pop record filled with familiarities from the 80s and 90s. Songs
range from the outright period piece "1998" to a mix of sounds from
past decades & the present, as found in "The Healing".
Featuring the vocal talents of Stina Hultin, Darian Lindle,
and Jennifer Ellison, plus a sublime cello performance from Jennifer "Tex" Ellison.
2007 - Lycopods
- This remains my flagship release. Having spent years studying
the melodic structures of both Western and Eastern classical music, I
was finally able to implement some of their complexities with ideas more familiar to electronic music. My
sound design also grew more focused on the hybridization of
acoustic and synthetic sound, leading to many instruments that sound
unfamiliar, but possibly real. As far as I know, this album has no peers, so you should probably check it out.
2006 - Tommy Shane - Shane Reaction
- Tommy Shane started out
in the 90s as part of the boyband 541. In 2002, he went solo.
Like every other boyband member turned soloist, his public face
was almost entirely contrived. Dispite an obviously suburban
upbringing, he was desperate for hip hop legitimacy, even adopting a
fake ebonics accent. Thankfully for him, people often buy into
this sort of lunacy. Available here is the 2010 remastering of
his album, complete with two bonus tracks, but without the typical
overcompression treatment. After all, this record still lives in
the Nick Notis universe, where sound fidelity is king.
2001 - Bees -
With pop motifs, crunched beats, old
samples, heavily processed vocals, and even a touch of salsa,
there's a lot going on in this album. But these elements are all
combined a lot more coherently than you might expect. Many years
after its release, Bees remains a highly interesting, and at times
