Paul Ellis and I have a collaborative album out now! He's been a friend for a long time and I'm a big fan of his work, so I'm pretty stoked to share this with you.

Some Sunday morning good times with Korg Gadget 2. Also loving making tunes on iPhone during lunch break, keeps work from getting too soul crushing.

Started 17 songs. 3 are keepers. The rest all rejected, even after putting in work on them. Still starting new ones... That's how writing music goes for me!

Last night was such a blast! Thanks Green Noise Records and everyone who came out.

Happy New Year everybody. Take care of yourself, take care of each other, take care of the planet.

I’d never done a year-end list, partly because I always feel bad whenever my album didn't make many lists, why would I want to put that on someone else? Also I listen to as much old music as new. But I was asked to do a top 10, and here it is. I enjoyed doing it, but I already realize I left important stuff out, oh well! There's some stuff on the other lists I need to check out... Thanks microphones in the trees!

Had such a great experience playing in Mexico City for this meditation with The Cosmic Egg guiding and Chuck Pee hosting. It was two firsts; I can't wait to play more guided meditations, and more shows in Mexico!

A nice review of the meditation tape I did the muzak for.

Just spotted this great review, thanks Noisey!
"The latest from the ever-prolific synthesist and experimentalist Pulse Emitter is a formalist exercise in pushing into the unknown galaxy of microtonality—essentially meaning that it consists of intervals and scales not traditionally explored in Western music. This is interesting to us the layperson listeners not because its conceptually groundbreaking, but because great art is often made under rigorous methodologies. And truly this is one of Pulse Emitter’s most wonderful and strange works in a catalog full of them, a collection of landscapes as colorful and alien as anything the ProcGen big bangs in No Man’s Sky have been able to dream out of raw data. It’s a whole new world, crafted with a hand tied behind its creator's back. —Colin Joyce"

Very pleased to announce my new album is out today! Quite some time in the making, it’s an hour of microtonal ambient music...

It’s the autumnal equinox (in the northern hemisphere), a beautiful time of year. Anywho, in 2014 I had this autumn inspired album (on the wonderful Constellation Tatsu label). I just set it to "name your price" (free) so go ahead and download and enjoy. 🍁

Here’s my guidelines for live performance that I’ve created for myself from experience over the years. I read them before I play to psych myself. Obviously they won’t apply to everyone! If you’re a performer feel free to chime in with what works for you.
1. Show confidence
2. Give. Deliver a performance worthy of the door charge
3. Have fun, don’t take it too seriously
4. There is such thing as too loud. And likewise, silence is powerful
5. Don’t be too shrill, and don't neglect bass
6. Breathe deeply, relax, go slowly, focus
7. Play from the heart, not the mind
8. Do not look at the crowd while playing
9. It will sound totally different at each venue, and there will be technical problems
10. Don’t feel bad afterwards, no one knows or cares when you make a mistake

I wrote the music and edited this guided meditation on Crash Symbols. A collaboration with my friend Chuck Pereda and Natalia Szendro in Mexico City (side A is in English, side B in Spanish). I loved working on this, the meditation is so relaxing and spiritually energising. I couldn't be more proud to be involved!🙏✨💗🧘♀️🕉 #yoganidra
