ep for dogs
This is an ep that originally existed as a 3" CDR. I made about 75 of them and gave them out for free and sent them to a bunch of people I didn't know. Sam from Zod Records was one of the first to respond and offered to release the tracks as a 12". I added a track or two to the list and asked Keith Whitman (aka Hrvatski) to do a remix. I'm not sure how many Zod had pressed, but they're pretty much all gone now. Here's the full album in high-quality VBR mp3 format.

Get it?! My name is Sam. I'm a hoot. Here's a little 4-track 7" I had pressed a while ago. I sold it for a buck or two at shows and sent it to many many people. Now it's here for free for you.

Here are a handful of 'officially unreleased' tracks. I like them, I hope you do to.

before you say anything... - This one's been kicking around for a while - It's a guitar + breaks + drum programming + overdriven loudness + quietness + Steff doing the dishes in the background.

drone 2005.03.29 - Here's a little drone piece I did recently.

Here are some live sets I've done. I don't play out very often at all, but when I do, each one is different. I try to record each one. Now that I've got a bit more web space I'm trying to put them all up here.

2000.12.16 - Lollygagger Session II
Live at Session II (17 mins - 25MB)
This is probably the most raucous set I've ever played. It's certainly the closest I've actually come to playing a breakcore set. It's all breaks, all mashed up, all played live via an odd and clunky sampler I made in Reaktor that only seemed to work that one time.

2002.11.01 - Hypercollision
Live at hyperCOLLISION (29 minutes - 49MB)
This set was performed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's museum for their hyperCOLLISION event - Fully improvised with live instruments including a toy dulcimer and a guitar (among many other things)

2003.04.30 - Zeitgeist Gallery
This piece was performed live on the Zeitgeist Gallery's beautiful grand piano as part of the Looping Festival. Basically, it's just me with a microphone plucking strings and hitting keys, then sampling the sounds with a sampler built (not by me) in PD.
