Le Garage Hermétique

In 2016, inspired by the music of a local temple in Tokyo, I became obsessed by microtunings. As I explored the world of exotic scales, the alien sounds reminded me of the work of my favorite graphic artist, Moebius (real name Jean Giraud), and his masterwork The Airtight Garage. A tribute album was born.

Moebius was strongly influenced by 20th Century New Age and psychedelic philosophy, including the teachings of Jean-Paul Appel-Guéry. In this video I riffed on Moebius’ use of crystals, flowers, (see e.g. Gardens of Aedena) and and transcendental imagery.

Grab a copy on Bandcamp, or stream the full album on Spotify, Apple Music, or wherever you listen.

Nihon Forever

Japanese themed wild image

A psychedelic tour of Japan.

I moved to a town near Tokyo in 2016. Amazed by the alien environment and soundscape, I was inspired to make field-recordings, instruments, and music in response. The result is NIHON FOREVER – an electronic tribute to the intense synthetic and organic sounds of Japanese life – vehicles, people, robots, and insects.
