sequence (2009)

this is my first album recorded for the rpm challenge (rpmchallenge.com). i'm pretty excited about that fact. all instrumentation (such as it is) and massive tweakfest created by me, c.s.reynolds. special thanks to my daughter, lilah; had she been sleeping through the night, this album would never have been made.

you'll have to wait for the book (2010)

you’ll have to wait for the book is my 2nd completed album for the RPM challenge. for RPM 2010, i plugged in my midi keyboard for the first time in years, rather than just fiddling with knobs, raw sound clips, or a keyboard emulator from a normal computer keyboard. i think the result is that, although the majority of the sounds are computer-generated (or have heavy effects on them), the sound is more natural and organic.

Wasp (2011)

Wasp is an instrumental soundtrack to Stieg Larsson's novel The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. To download the full album in any format you like, go to jazzsequence.bandcamp.com

The Signal (2012)

The Signal is a project about communication, technology, conspiracy theories and community. UVB-76 is an arcane, shortwave radio frequency based somewhere in Russia that has been broadcasting a steady stream of beeps, blips, buzzes and chirps since the Cold War. And no one knows what it is (except possibly whoever is broadcasting it). (Read more about UVB-76: Inside the Russian Short Wave Radio Enigma, Wired) This project is an attempt to communicate the experience around listening to an encoded stream of information and trying to decipher it, and the community of individuals around the world who are actively trying to do that with UVB-76 through instrumental electronic music. These tracks are the final mastered versions that were sent in to NH and are all downloadable. For the final, final versions, go to http://music.jazzsequence.com/album/the-signal
