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 a good brain workout: wrangling and corralling machines, devices, wires, knobs, switches, dials in such a way as to create and shape music and audio definitely keeps you on your mental toes. Self taught in music, synthesis and audio, I'm constantly pushing myself to learn new things as I go along. None of my music has seen commercial release, but I'm OK with that - the pleasure for me is in the process.

Having amassed a large personal library of original, mostly ambient electronic music, 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 the world on the internet? That stuck with me, and I agreed with it, 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 more recent computer-based recordings, was going to be a large and prolonged project to take on. In 2015, I went ahead and signed up for a Soundcloud account, and started with uploads of the low hanging fruit: long-form recent-vintage ambient recordings, created in the computer, mastered and ready for digital distribution.

Over the course of the next three years, I worked my way backward through my archive and, piece by piece, got each one prepped, cataloged and uploaded. While this process was ongoing, I continued to create and upload new works as well. I'm pleased to announce 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 clean and professional as possible. 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.")
