  • This music was created using a generative synthesis engine I programmed. It is run controlling various synthesizers including self-programmed digital synthesizer, as well as FM, wave-table, and analog.rnThis is a collection of sounds that have been featured in some of my installation work, as well as other recorded work.

  • This music was created for the seventh annual Shitsurai exhibition at The Terminal Gallery, a Kyo-machiya townhouse in Kyoto, Japan. It was created in collaboration with the photographer Lane Diko for a site-specific installation in the underground bomb shelter space of the building.

  • Landon Caldwell & Flower Head Ensemble blur the line between improvisation and composition on their debut album, “Simultaneous Systems”. Recorded remotely in Indianapolis, Asheville, Chicago and San Francisco, all players recorded improvisations to a morphing tone independent of the others. Those takes were compiled and arranged by bandleader Caldwell with intuition as a guide. The result is a stunning spiritual jazz album for the contemporary era, melding shimmering ambience alongside ecstatic free flowing spontaneity. The project brings together Mac Blackout and Tom Lageveen on alto sax, Nick Yeck-Stauffer on trumpet, K. Dylan Edrich on strings, Mark Tester on vibes/synth, Thom Nguyen on drums/percussion and Landon Caldwell on electric piano, organ, synth, voice and pan pipes. It’s a powerful debut befit of the times.
