Self Portrait 
(Songs My Guitar Taught Me)

Songs sparked from inspiration. Sometimes magic happens in the studio or when you’re sitting around with your guitar. Tuneful, melodic, improvisational, funky in some cases, atmospheric in others.  

Dartanyan Composer, Producer, Engineer

Ambience 100101 (Audio Art) 

A collection of noise, neo-psychedelia, intergalactic-healing tones and music channeled back through time from my future self! 

[Many of these pieces combine sound design and images with realtime instrumental  and vocal improvisation. 
Entitled:  The CalifornIowa Years,  the project is due Spring 2018] 

Special BONUS!!
CASSINI-JUNO was the result of a question I asked myself about space travel. The answer evolved into the soundtrack for the images captured by satellites.
