Last year I started Project 100, where I'd write a sound work for ANYONE (up to 100 ppl) who donates $25 to my time spent composing that work, which could be based on whatever the donor wanted. I've started composing some of these works. This is the first one. "Birth of a Ghost Bike."

This idea was described imagining a sound work where somebody was enjoying themselves on an evening with friends and drinking, and then riding their bike home when they're surprisingly hit in the face with a lead pipe. With that in mind, this is what I came up with. Towards the end it gets a little bit grittier than I normally write, almost like a sound dragon breathing fire on to the ears of the universe. Enjoy!

And there are still slots to participate in Project 100, if you're interested. Simply go to,click on "Support" at the top of the page, donate $25 and tell me if you have a basis for a sound work for me (you don't have to have an idea, btw!) and I'll write you a work!

I create non-directional works with a sense of timelessness. Without the need to be somewhere, the works are free. They are allowed to be themselves, allowed to be anywhere and nowhere.

My works almost have no ending and no beginning. They are part of a loop, just like myself.
