Behind The Musical Brain and Heart And All That Jazz

I find jazz to be an interesting style of music. It's not something I have on constant drip, but I appreciate the structure or lack of structure when I'm listening to an improvisation. Jazz has great improvisational technique, the intricate rhythms and syncopation and all the dynamic chords entice me, keep my attention. I always …

Nova Spire – Visions – A Cinematic/IDM EP

What I wanted to do was to create a short IDM/Braindance mini EP to showcase my musical technique and styling. It is highly influenced by Squarepusher and Aphex Twin material.

Juno Reactor – Tempest – Nova Spire Remix

The Golden Sun Of The Great East is the 8th Juno Reactor Studio album.

Klomb (2014)

"Klomb" is a cosmic paradox of ancient futurism. These are the remnants of a spiritual nomad, a metaphysical journey that were channeled where time periods and space had collided.

Transcendental Musical Spaces + Beethoven Challenge

I am most inspired by classical musicians these days, despite being so enthused by electronic music. It appears electronic music is taking a back seat even for people like Daft Punk, using live instrumentation prominently on their new record. It always seemed to me the most interesting aspects of electronic music still had elements of emotion to …

Salvador Dali – Persistence of Memory – Ottawa Music – Nova Spire Sound Art Installation

The “Persistence of Memory” sound art installation was an exercise I did in 2012. It was created during the period I created my EP Visions. I never have read a review or any form of speculation of Dali’s painting, “Persistence of Memory” as I wanted to leave my own footprint, my interpretation of the image …
