I was just way too excited not to post this here. I just released my new Dream Sequences EP with 5 tracks. 3 are remixes of tracks found on my Qxotc Slp CD and 2 are brand new tracks that have not been released yet. You can find both the CD or MP3 downloads at CD Baby. As the description says on there, these tracks are “Sonic sequences that came from a series of ambient glitch dreams I once had.” That sums it up nicely! Leave some love here or out there if you order or listen to the tunes. All comments and feedback are welcome and very much appreciated!
In my opinion, it’s one of my best CD/mp3 offerings yet and my favorite by far because it incorporates not only some of my favorite Ambient Glitch tracks, but also because my good friend Matt Pearson from zenbullets helped to collaborate on it. He provided the artwork for the cover and the CD itself, and he’s such a talented guy that I was really truly priviledged to work with him. If you have some time, you should also check out his Abandoned Art site, which is devoted to his generative art.
You can see what Matt has to say about the music in his Phi Sequence post on his site. Again, I can’t thank him enough for working with me.
To kick off the release of this EP, Matt has also kindly put together this video. Note that the video is a much better quality than this, and Youtube tends to squash the actual quality to make it fit for internet consumption. But still, I think he did a stunning job on the video.
Let me know what you think, and as always, thanks for looking and listening!

Rob, I haven’t had a chance to listen to them yet, but I did want to quickly pass along my congratulations! Very exciting. I hope you find some success for this, at least on a level equal to your excitement. Take care, Robb.
I am truly excited about it. What made it wonderful is that I got to work with someone I both admire and feel is truly talented. It makes all the difference. I think we have some good chemistry here and hope we can work together on other projects.
How are your patches coming along? I keep meaning to download them and try them out. I think it can be a little overwhelming seeing the size and volume you have on your site. Any chance you might put together a refill in the future?
All my best. And thanks again for the kind words!
That chemistry is really important. I haven’t done a lot with collaborations, but when it works, there’s something magical there. When it doesn’t… well, then there’s just something there. 😉
The patches are coming along just fine, but I’ve missed a few days last month, being busy with work and home. It’s funny, because it’s a grueling schedule some days and other days its pretty effortless, but I guess that’s how it goes with a project like this.
Your timing is great. I’m actually putting the final touches on a refill right now, but it might not work quite the way you think. Expect an announcement in the next few days over on PAD.
Again, congrats! I really liked the video!
If you wouldn’t mind, I’d love to host the refill on my site and provide a review of it (provided the refill isn’t massive of course). Let me know if you’re interested in that? I think you have an amazing depth of patches in your site and I feel everyone should have a look and at least try out a few and learn a little in the process.
From one Rob(b) to another,
Hey, Rob, thanks for your offer to host my refill! I appreciate it. But, if you’ve dropped by PAD today, you’ll see why I won’t be widely distributing it.
Thanks for the kind words about the blog, too! I really appreciate that. It seems like I concentrate just on pads, because it seems like it’s the only thing I post, but it’s good to hear that other people think there is variety!
Take care, fellow Rob(b)!
I just donated to your refill project, and sent you an email. I think it’s a great idea you have there. And I wish you success with it. It’s always nice when we see the fruits of our labor come together in these creative ways.
Definitely! And, thank you! I appreciate your support, both in terms of comments and your donation!
You’re very welcome. I’ll have to take some time to really go through the refill and patches and see what interesting uses I can find for them. Thanks for all your work putting them together.
