Sketches and Experiments - An intro

What you'll find here are various bits of music or sound. My goal is to not restrict myself by a need of a polished end product so these won't generally be deeply mixed or carefully mastered. The focus is on exploration and trying things - exploring musical or sonic ideas, experimenting with new instruments or tools, prototyping a working approach, or just playing around. I'd like to avoid too much editing or over-working of material, instead giving a window into what I'm playing with at the moment.

In addition to the fun of sharing for it's own sake, I hope doing this will give me that little bit of extra motivation to have a go at some of those brief, ephemeral "what if?" thoughts and see what results can be teased out of them.

Some posts I may comment on, others I may post with little or no commentary. Maybe there will be some musings on technique or process ideas as well? Who knows? This is my first time doing this and my first attempt at a blog of any kind, so I'll be figuring it out as I go!
