about myxprojekt

I've been making electronic music in one form or another for more years than I care to admit. It's a labor of love, as well as good brain exercise: wrangling and corralling machines, devices, wires, knobs, switches, dials in such a way as to capture and reproduce audio keeps you on your mental toes. I'm self taught in music, synthesis and audio, and I'm constantly pushing myself to learn new things as I go along. None of my stuff has been released commercially, but that hasn't stopped me.

A few years ago, having amassed a large personal library of original, mostly ambient electronic music, my brother asked me: if you have no plans to try selling your music, why don't you at least make it available to the world on the internet? That stuck with me, and I agreed with the idea, but contemplating the scope of the project was daunting: remastering, enhancing and in some cases, remixing hours of reel to reel and DAT recordings, on top of more recent computer-based recordings, was going to be a big project to take on. In 2015, I signed up for a Soundcloud account, and I uploaded the low hanging fruit: long form ambient recordings of recent vintage, created in the computer, mastered and ready for digital distribution.

Over the course of the next three years, I plowed through my entire archive and, piece by piece, got each one cleaned up, remastered (and in some cases remixed), uploaded and cataloged. While this process was ongoing, I continued to make and upload new works as well. I'm happy to say that as of this writing in early 2018, the vast majority of my archive is now available to anyone with an internet connection.

Every effort has been made to make the archival recordings sound as good as I could make them. 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.")
