Göbekli Tepe is a solo for 20 edo electric guitar. It is also the name of an intriguing structure found in Turkey from about 12,000 ago. When the inhabitants left they deliberately backfilled the site to hide and / or protect it. No one knows at this time why. Click on the song icon to read more about this place.
No Promises is a short piano improvisation demonstrating some chords I find to my liking in 14 notes per octave tuning.
A Night at Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery is an ambient piece is mixed tunings, Bohlen-Pierce, 12 edo, and unpitched.
a manic ego trapped in a hall of mirrors is a composition that my collaborator Frank Miller (of “2”) built around my 20 edo guitar part. Frank wrote and performed the vocals, lyrics, drums, 12 edo bass and produced the composition.
For William Lynch who wanted some 2, 3, and 7 Limit (omit 5 limit) music to listen to. A humble improvisation with the tuning displayed below.
Greg Hooper used an MP3 recording of my aeolian harp. He performed some manipulations, arranged and produced them resulting in the above composition.
Greg describes his composition: (it) starts off an octave down and then I add in a third, fourth, tonic, third fifth sixth and major seventh – all transposed using sample rate changes rather than pitch shifting, so each version is a different length according to the ratio of the pitch.
We hope you enjoy it!

The Uncanny Valley is a composition for solo piano tuned to the unreduced harmonic series (odd members only). This piece has a fairly wide dynamic range.
This is a variation – I tried using the lead fishing weights to hold the plate in place which worked wonderfully. As a result the plate was no longer tied at one end to a bridge and could freely vibrate on the strings.
