I've been making electronic music in one form or another for more years than I care to admit. It's both a labor of love and a good brain workout, given the need to master multiple disciplines - sound design, audio engineering, programming, arranging and production. A principal joy for me is that with every new piece of music I create, I learn something new. None of my music has seen commercial release, but I'm OK with that - the pleasure for me is in the process.
A few years ago my brother asked me: if you have no plans to try selling your music, why don't you at least make it available to people on the internet? That stuck with me, and I thought it was a great idea, but contemplating the scope of the project was daunting: remastering, enhancing, and in some cases reworking and remixing hours of reel-to-reel and DAT recordings, on top of my more recent computer-based recordings, would be a large and prolonged project to take on. In 2015, I got the ball rolling with a Soundcloud account, and started uploading my more recent-vintage ambient recordings which had been created in the computer, were already mastered and ready for digital distribution.
Over the course of the following three years, I worked my way backward through my archive and, piece by piece, got each one transferred into the computer, cleaned up, mastered, cataloged and uploaded. In a few cases (mainly where I had issues with audio quality), I recreated them in the computer from scratch, using the original track as a guide. While all of this work was ongoing, I also continued to create and upload new works as well. I'm pleased to announce that, as of this writing in early 2018 (and updated in late 2019), the bulk of my archive is now available to anyone with an internet connection, free for the downloading.
There are a few minor gaps (some reel to reel tape baking and recovery work will be required to fill these gaps), which I intend to address in the future. Since I'm also still producing new work as well, be sure to check back for updates.
(By the way, in case you are curious, the pronunciation of myxprojekt is simply "mix project.")
