A new album is coming!

My new solo album titled Overundertone will be released on this coming Monday (April 13) by NoRemixes label.  If last album, 120V was a collection of my old pieces, this album is a representation of where I am now. Almost all the tracks in the album use computer-synthesized sounds. Just like anything with with the computer, the sounds in this album are precise, digital, almost to the point that it feels unnatural and inhuman. But I like that aspects of computer music.

I think I made an interesting album. I hope you like it, too.

And yesterday, IWJW released the first album under Starry Night Records.

In sum, life is good.

A new album is out

120V is out now on Amazon as a downloadable album.

This is a compilation album of my solo works from 2002 to 2013.  All tracks except one are available for streaming in Soundcloud (The SCloud has a better streaming quality, and you can listen to the entire track). The album-only track, also named as 120v, is a no-input mixer piece that is quite different from all other works included in this album.
Visceral Media also made a video interview about me and my album. The guest in this video also appears in some of my works.

Please listen, share, review, and purchase the album!

A New Album is on the Way

Visceral Media Records will be releasing my new album in few weeks. The album is titled 120V, and it is a “best of” album that contains my works composed in the past 10+ years.  It also has a new track for no-input mixer and computer (marked with * in the track listing).

The album has quite a variety in terms of electronic music style. I feel very happy to share an album that contains pieces that reflects who I was and who I am. My life and music has changed immensely since I started to make electronic after plugging things into 120V outlets in the US.
