The lunar eclipse was quite surreal the other night, and it had this three dimensional quality to it. I captured it on my iPhone, but alas, it looks like just a speck. I thought I would share a bit of it with some ambient music I created years ago:

Every time I hear the name Harold Budd, my mind starts playing the dreamy Major 7 themed song “The Plateaux Of Mirror” that he wrote and recorded with Brian Eno. That album (with the same name) remains an all time favorite. He sometimes gets lumped into the ‘new age’ category, but if pressed to use a category, I would suggest using ‘ambient’ or ‘landscape’ music.
Here’s a recent interview with Harold Budd where he claims “I’m So Minimal, I’m Not Even Minimalist!“:
Television spot #2 for the Disney movie Tangled. My track “Somebody Pinch Me” was featured. I’ll never forget my son running through our house yelling “It’s you daddy, it’s you!” when he saw the commercial and heard the song. He was watching a DVR’d episode of Star Wars The Clone Wars and then the Tangled commercial played. That was a great moment.
The television campaign for the Disney movie Tangled featured my song “Somebody Pinch Me”. An upbeat mixture of drums, bongos, percussion, and upright bass.
I had great fun reworking Radiohead’s single “Nude” a few years back. It was part of the Radiohead remix site back when “In Rainbows” was released.
I took it to a darker, more spacey world. I put together this video for it from some found early 1900s industrial footage
