I am pleased to announce the release of my new song collection, "Constellation Blackbird" on the Weareallghosts netlabel. It's available at or, released under a Creative Commons license.

Phantom Circuit is an excellent UK-based podcast which plays an electic mix of
electronic music and intriguing offbeat material. The April 2015 edition (episode 153) marks a triumphant return after a brief hiatus. My song, "Forgotten Fields", first released in 2009, is one of the pieces featured on the podcast.  I really enjoyed hearing the other artists' work on this podcast:

One of my favorite music-makers is Dave Keifer, who records as Cagey House. He makes fun, experimental music that goes all sorts of interesting places. I was delighted to find that his latest song on Classwar Karaoke gave me a bit of a shout-out. Here is "Hey for Gurdonark". Thanks, Cagey House!

The Classwar Karaoke Project just released its 25th compilation. I enjoy contributing to this project, as well as listening to the contributions of others. For the 25th edition, I contributed the piece "Ten Kisses Goodbye". It's a gentle, melodic instrumental that seek to impart an idea or two about partings, and adolescence, and the youthful in us all. Here is the track:
