About

Perhaps you should start with the manifesto.

I’m Dave Wiskus, a musician from Denver, Colorado. I also design software, have a blog, and co-host a popular podcast. But right now let’s focus on the music thing.

This whole project is an experiment and a work in progress. But the idea is that I’m going to write and record music and put it on the Internet. Let’s take all this technology and turn it into stuff. What could possibly go wrong?

That’s better.

Demos will always be free with the option to give me money. Studio tracks might not be, but we’ll monetize that bridge when we come to it.
