My music making alter ego is: Kamelmauz. He does sonic experiments and lets me produce and issue them on Duty Free Records. Finally, these records are issued on Bandcamp, in one of two locations.
Got it? There today exist fourteen different audio productions. Each can be downloaded or auditioned at Bandcamp.
The vein of music I create is variously reduced to categories–experimental/avant-agarde/ambient/industrial/dark ambient–which miss the personal point of my efforts. Oh well. ‘we’ make music for the sake of my enjoyment of the process of making music, and, to actively support my enthusiasm for learning, novelty, and experience.
I’m spending most of my creative time trying to keep many flowers in pots and a vegetable garden from keeling over.
Still, I break away and do other creative experiments too, such as hooking an iPad and iPhone into the mixer, plopping an eBow on a steel guitar, turning the lights low, pressing record on a camera, and, ending up with an excuse to join Vimeo.
New free soundz from the stew pot of nogutsnoglory studios; announced today on the music blog. There the new piece is embedded, excerpted and plugged into a video, and linked through to Kamelmauz-Soundz — where experts may download the free high definition FLAC audio file.
Incidentally, it really is nifty when anybody taps [Like] at Bandcamp, or, sends the link over to Google+ with a [Plus].
There’s something comforting about leaving the TV on and tuned to the World Cup and hearing the vuvuzela peek through the sonic ambience of the house. When I first heard the singular drone, I commented, “I like that, it sounds like a whale song.” As it is with anything capable of plying a drone, I want one.

I’ve assembled two versions of my latest ‘learning curve’ experiment with iMovie. This is the classical version, Serene Alleluias, (title taken from Messiaen’s Serene Alleluias of a Soul Desiring Heaven of a Soul Desiring Heaven, that closes the music track,) and the jazz version, In a Silent Way, is posted over on nogutsnoglory and a lo-fi version on transformative tools. These versions in flash at 15fps don’t do the 24fps HD production justice, so if you want something more deluxe track me down.
I’d like to start making my ‘world hed music’ in mixed-media formats. The assembled two voyages, authored under my design pseudonym Hippie Goat, exceeded my expectations.
