Background Musics, my latest ambient release is now available in most digital music stores. But even better than that, I’m running a Christmas special in 3 stores. From now until Christmas, you can pick up Background Musics for only $4.99 in the Android Market, Bandcamp and my own music store. Individual songs are priced at $0.49 each and I’m offering two songs for free at the Android Market and Bandcamp.
I’m also putting the finishing touches on my next release, Light 1, and have a preview, 8.extended, an hour long, extended version of one of the songs available at Bandcamp for whatever price you want to pay. You set your own price. It’s entirely up to you.
Light 1 has been an interesting experiment on musical modes to work on. It is a concept album on the properties of light and the various ways it impacts life on Earth and the human experience. The album features 8 new ambient songs that can be played by themselves or combined in any way to create even more music. More on that when I’m closer to releasing it.
I’m happy to announce the release of my newest album Background Musics as well as the launch of my official digital music store!
Background Musics features a collection of 12 new musics for a variety of shared common themes, situations, and thoughts within the human experience. The album is on sale now for only $9 and all individual songs are available for $1 each.
I started writing songs for this album in 2007 as a short concept album called Moments. It was intended to be a short work of background theme music for common, human situations. The project slowly grew over time and eventually became the full-length album Background Musics.
Background Musics includes 12 new ambient songs of various tones and moods, some are generative, some are original compositions and some are experiments in repetition and timing structures.
- Drifting on the Sea
- Future Events
- Watching Clouds Form
- Time Spent Waiting
- Past the Sacred
- Missing Someone
- A Cold Day
- Trying To Remember Something
- Seeing Things Anew
- Staring out a Window, Riding in a Car
- Mistaken Lessons
Listen to some full-length songs below.

As a special gift to subscribers & readers, here is a free download of Seeing Things Anew from the new album.
A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it. The truth is the truth even if nobody believes it.

During Thursday’s (Feb. 24, 2011) interview with Salon.com’s Glenn Greenwald, Stephen gave a very brief and sneaky shout out to the Guardians of Free Speech, Anonymous, in the form of a Guy Fawkes mask super-imposed on his face.

Either Stephen (or one of his editors) is simply covering his own ass or he’s making a subtle but interesting statement. I’m not sure how this will be perceived by the populous at large but I, for one, call it down-right awesome.

Faith is belief without, and against, evidence and reason; coincidentally that’s also the definition of delusion. – anonymous
Can omniscient God, who
Knows the future, find
The omnipotence to
Change his future mind?
