Music is how I connect with my emotions. Sound exploration helps me to find solace in this dark, panic-stricken world. It is a journey down a long corridor with doors that reveal unique, sonic spaces.
My background in Celtic, shoegaze, and ambient music helps to bridge the gap between darkness and light, the earthly and the ethereal. With Silver Carpet, I strive to create industrial rhythms that melt with transient soundscapes. A Casio MIDI controller, several virtual synthesizers, VST instruments, and a complete rack of delay effects give me the musical freedom to record expressive pieces. Running my electric harp through a BOSS delay pedal adds dimension to these works.
During the initial stages of the pandemic, I determined to learn in-depth mixing/mastering techniques. Updating my studio has enabled me to have complete control over my music.
Music composition is always a learning process for me, and I look forward to recording more pieces that inspire and enlighten others during this bleak time. I would welcome more chances to give traditional and virtual performances, and I am currently designing my studio for effective visual experiences.
