the blind flight is coming back

Hello all.

I know that it has been a very long time since I have written and I still hope that this blog still has a following, even with my lengthy absence.

For any of you who have been following me on bandcamp, you already know that this has been a very difficult year.

For those who don’t follow my musical endeavors, we found out in June that my little brother had stage 4 kidney cancer. I went down to visit him in July and when I returned, I composed an album called Look Unto the Heavens as my way to capture emotions and thoughts I had about the visit.

That album, which has more complete notes and a review, can be found here.

In November of this year, my brother died from his terminal illness just one week before Thanksgiving. When I returned, I wrote a follow up to look unto the Heavens, an album called Transition which you can find here.

After talking with some of the people who are on modul303, I have decided to bring the Blind Flight back to the airwaves, in the form of a podcast with a couple of significant changes.

The most notable of these is that the program will now only be a 2 hour podcast instead of the sprawling 5 hours that it had been for many years.

I don’t know exactly when the first program will air but it will probably be sometime in January of 2018 and the theme of the first show will be snow and since there is so much music composed around this theme, it will likely be a two part program.

Though I’d like to continue posting links and playlists here as I have done before, I don’t know how realistic that is so I would invite you to follow the main site at

That’s for the English page so for other languages, you can follow

Please have a look at my bandcamp page if you recently haven’t as there is a ton of new music that I’ve released in 2017, including a 12 volume installation called The Full Moon series.

I hope that you had an abundantly merry Christmas and if you don’t celebrate, I hope you had a fantastic day and I wish each of you a very happy new year.


new release: Cellular Respiration

Hello. I have a new release under the Nox Intempesta project with Sevenism, an album called Cellular Respiration.

This is a compilation of our appearances on various artist compilations available on the ambient online bandcamp site. In addition, there are around 3 and a half hours of alternate mixes of the original tracks never before released.

I thank you for your listenership and support.

for tax day, this is now a free album and will remain so

This, my second noise album, is a protest against a government organization that we have all grown to despise. Turn this one up loud as you slowly walk out to your mailbox with great reluctance as you mail an envelope with a check made out to the Internal revenue Service for an amount of your hard earned cash made out to an agency who is under the grand delusion that they know how to allocate and spend your money much better than you do. This album is much more brutal than the last noise record, to represent the coercive brutality by which the most irredeemably corrupt government agency in American history operates.

a call to all musicians for a new collaboration project


As many of you know, I have collaborated with a number of musicians from all over the world in the last 4 years and, once again, being inspired by Cousin Silas, I would like to begin the creation process of Scott Lawlor and friends.

if anyone is interested in doing a collaboration, even if we’ve never worked together before, I would love to work with you on a track for the first volume of what I hope will become a series of releases.

As you may also know, I work in a variety of subgenres of ambient including Dark ambient, space, new-age, and recently, noise and avant gard. I am always up for trying something that I may not have considered before so if you’d like to work on something that isn’t in these categories, I am willing to explore new sonic territory with you.

To get in touch, you can leave me a message on Facebook, twitter, or contact me through my bandcamp page

If you contact me through Facebook and we don’t follow each other, I may not see your message right away because Facebook notifications apparently don’t notify you of other messages or filtered messages, as they call it this week.

Please feel free to share this invitation with other musicians you may follow if you feel so inclined.

I thank you for considering the possibility of collaboration and I look forward to our creative explorations together.

some reissues coming out


I wanted to let you know that I’m planning a few reissues on my bandcamp page in2017.

As you know, I started out releasing albums on other net labels in 2013 and 2014 and am still honored that net labels in the community make my work a part of their catalogues of digital material. My logic in reissuing these older titles is that I probably have followers on bandcamp who may not necessarily follow the other labels and so I am planning this series over the rest of this year along with the usual release of new material.

I will be reissuing ‘Like a Pelican of the Wilderness” which was originally released on the weareallghosts label in June of 2013. I may also record a bonus track for this reissue but I haven’t decided on that as of yet. As this was one of my first albums, and since my use of vst’s and methods of recording have changed considerably, I was drawn to the notion of reworking the whole album from scratch and that’s still something I am contemplating but then, there is merit in letting a work be, no matter how I feel about its sound later as it captured a specific moment in my life so the aim of perfection at a later time overrides that initial picture in the original moment. As you can tell, this is still an idea that I’m unsure of.

Waterless Places which was originally released on the Aural Films label in 2014 will also be reissued. This album has been remastered and includes a bonus track, an organ version of the piece which was performed live on in 2015.

I am going to be reissuing “the Ancient Glaciers of Mars” with MetaDronos later this year with all new artwork by Wings of an Angel as well as a 35 minute newly created track exclusively for this version of the release.

Two more collaborations will also be coming out, “Ancient Oceans with the Gateless Gate and Abstractions with Earlyguard, also originally released on the weareallghosts label.

All of these reissued albums will have a cost of 0 with the option to name your own price. as always, I appreciate your support of my work financially and in the time it takes to listen to the music. With so much digital material available in such abundance, I am honored that my work is among the artists who you decide to make a part of your lives.
