blog entry

this is a little old, but i'm just now getting around to uploading it here. i made an ep of electronic music. here's the description i wrote for it on

Commuter Breaks is Owen’s first foray into sample-based electronic music. He had no idea what he was doing. Normally he plays guitar and talks about himself in the first person. For this EP, he decided to try something new—somewhat under the influence of Panda Bear/Animal Collective—and made these songs using the iPhone app Beatmaker. The whole thing was written and programmed in 2009 while either on a shuttle on the way to work or holding a baby.

you can download the whole album at once as a zip file or get the individual tracks below.

1. rebirth of salamander
2. outer spaces
3. aluminum tunnel
4. dolphin clicks
5. nico's dream
