Inspired by JJ Rousseau’s book, this imaginary soundtrack is a personal sonic interpretation of the Reveries of the Solitary Walker.
Focused on Promenades 5 and 7, the most nature and inner looking chapters of the book, the soundtrack is a companion to walking, meditating, dreaming and spacing out. A helping hand, here to guide you as you follow the steps of Mister Jean Jacques as he strolls on a secluded island or the Alps hills and valleys.
Meditative, rocked by the slow walking pace, this piece of music was put together on an analog Fostex M80 reel to reel 8 Track, with old synths and drum machines. All flaws and parasite noises were left unharmed and unfiltered, hopefully giving it texture, sincerity and richness, as grown from the earth.
Immerse yourself. Listen to these sounds when working at home, as a podcast on your daily commute, for your morning walk, daydreaming next to the fireplace or on a front porch star gazing.
Listen. Breath. Allow your spirit to wander. Meditate. Dream.
Been rounding up a few songs that I've worked on but never released, or designed for musical synch and licensing. All songs are owned by myself, please inquire if interested in putting one of these tracks on your video/movie/game etc !
Thrilled to announce a solo show for Tombées de la Nuit in Rennes on July 6th !
Great festival, beautiful night out, info here :
Been working on a series of metaphorical ink drawings, a mish mash of dreams, visions and abstractions.
This one is called the Night Fisheram (detail of a larger image).

Life in Austin wasn't all about lone stars and taco, also eventually recorded a few tunes...coming up is a new 45 single with a couple songs brewed with some of the oh so talented musicians, producers and engineers I was fortunate to have met and worked with in the Capital City
Feels like I've been using the ink pens a lot lately, and getting a kick out of it ! Thought I'd start a new section on the website devoted to that technique :
Some great words on the Map to a Soundtrack - WALDEN project in the french alt magazine GONZAI !
"17 minutes to dream about all the other lives you could be living" Thanks !
Nature driven OST to the HD Thoreau's book WALDEN is now streamable and downloadable for FREE on Redeye's Bandcamp ! Go and have a listen, immerse yourself and relax.
As the whole project was recorded on analog tape, a very short run of audio cassettes will also be available very soon !
Drawing for the new LaFolie Records logo, who wanted a more relaxed, illustrative, cool vibe to their signature, versus a cleaner/colder digital previous version.
The new logo also portrays the company's values, of always aiming for the best, in quality and interaction, and of bringing out people's best potential, hence the space exploration theme.
An artzine, long in the making, called "San Antonio & the Border towns" as most of the inspiration and re used papers are from the Texas / Mexico border.

A little glimpse at the work in progress on the WALDEN imaginary soundtrack : Brute Neighbors. All analog, on a Fostex M80 reel to reel 8 track...the sounds of nature.
