Tim Reed – A Nonfunctional Teapot
Today we feature Tim Reed who has the electro-acoustic ambient sounds down to a science, quite literally. Tim has a PhD in composition from the University of Florida and currently teaches music theory and composition at Manchester College in Indiana.
The work A Nonfunctional Teapot echos mangled samples of what I assume is teapots and other strange sound recordings based around the theme. These manipulations weave in and out creating a very interesting composition reminiscent of the great John Cage or Karlheinz Stockhausen.
Please download and enjoy. Tim Reed has plenty of other music for your perusal at the following links.
I’m going to go put on some tea.

Subaqueous – Liquescent
Here is a nice melodic, electronic tune from the Seattle composer Subaqueous. His music is a unique blend of beat science, melodic entrancement, and composition. Liquescent is an aptly named jam: flowing, liquid funk. You can purchase the album off of his Bandcamp site, or, keep up to date of new tunes on his Soundcloud. Enjoy!

Recipher – Gigatribe
Here is a little trip hop tune with distorted breakbeats and pretty heavy bass, perfect for freestyling over. I don’t believe this song was on the website previous to the update, it’s available on the Origami Ham album. This song was done entirely on the Emu E5000 Ultra with samples from the Waldorf Microwave XT. Enjoy.
You can download the album in it’s entirety here.

Biepang is from Tampa, Florida and makes awesome electro music! I love the synthesizer work and it would make Vince Noir proud. Here is the tune Bleak Leisure from the album named the same! Find more of his work below and an interview with him here from Beat Portal.
