Solace Solace
Solace is a work created using sound analysis and re-synthesis techniques. The source materials are from the alto saxophone performance of Dr. Jan Berry Baker.

The idea of this project was to create a long-form ambient work that would be highly immersive and engaging for close listening but would also create an atmospheric quality at lower volume levels. The sound of the music is continuously renewed – there is no repetition of any sonic element or gesture throughout the ent...more
Play is the Supreme Bricoleur of Frail Transient Constructions Play is the Supreme Bricoleur of Frail Transient Constructions
These five works of acousmatic music are united under one theme – the actions of the bricoleur as the fashioning of dream images, myth, and meaning though playful intervention with disparate objects and things; the method itself poised somewhere between scientific and magical. Throwing together, making linkages and amalgams, working between being and becoming, structure and event – it is in the space between realization and concept where one finds art.

Folio - Volume Two Folio - Volume Two
The Folio series features various miscellaneous compositions that develop out of my general practice. These works are the result of explorations into the modeling of sounds and musical structures that typically result in more elaborated and concentrated works. In some ways they are sketches or compositional studies. Some of these experimental pieces, composed on an on-going basis, turn out to be more than mere exercises and are able to stand on their own as separate compositions. The Folio serie...more

Drawing Voices Drawing Voices
Honestly, can a music concept get more interesting than Drawing Voices? We doubt it. But beyond its theoretical aims, the music contained is also awesome: as organic as it is electronic; mellow and minimal at times; with moments of obvious volume-push abrasiveness. This self-titled release is an appropriate stepping stone for the Double-H Noise family. And since it’s a new year—we at Hydra Head Industries enjoy congratulating ourselves—let’s say that said imprint is respo...more
Living Planet Living Planet
Ambient Shamanic Space music with a slight tribal/techno edge. Could be considered a sequel and companion disc for "Esoterica"

Electroambient Space review of "Living Planet":

Quick on the heels of Dan Pound's last release Esoterica comes Living Planet.

"Birth of a Planet" begins with primeval deep rumblings, though this soon gives way to flutes, synths, random electronic sounds and gentle percussion. The man...more
