2017

In 2017, I lived in Los Angeles, made a ton of music, learned how to play bass clarinet, and taped a MIDI pickup onto my guitar. I saw the Giant Sequoias, stopped being vegetarian, and made SO MANY BOOKS. Wrapped up MOONS. Snuggled my cat. Produced and recorded a big weird good folk opera with my old bandmate Chip.

2016

In 2016, I started my Patreon, which kicked my productivity into a buzzing overdrive. Starting in June, I made 160 almost-daily gifscores, 4 small videogames, a twitterbot, 12 MOONS songs (8 with accompanying collage videos). I also lived in Madrid, traveled to Wales, Portugal, and countless Spanish towns, moved back to Utah, moved to Los Angeles, made a book of Kennings with Blair, and taught ~20hrs/week of ESL classes. It was a really amazing year.

2015

In 2015, I lived in St. Louis, worked at a bakery & in after-school programs teaching chess, and recorded most of what would become atongue[. Then I traveled to Iceland, lived in Italy for a month, and moved to Madrid to learn how to teach ESL and try to find a job. It was a monumentally stressful and wild year, and I'm really grateful I did it.

SOLO MUSIC
