chronic illness, social isolation Show more
Here's a much more vulnerable #introduction? I've been dealing with chronic illness and, as a result, social isolation for the last six years. It's done a number on my brain I think. I'm now living independently for the first time in my life at age 31. 🙈
Hi! My name's Jaron. In my spare time I like to make music and sounds with synthesizers. Here is an #introduction to some of my stuff.
Anodyne Institute is a fictional place with musical home movies.
Mundane Space Adventures is a whimsical sci-fi universe.
Thanks for visiting!
I do these sometimes in a sweet silly jokey way and to like, deal with my bisexuality?
I mean, maybe the only other good Holiday Travel story I have is when a guy on the loudspeaker was reading off the last names of family groups and he said "Cox", which I heard as "cocks", which prompted me to giggle like a ten-year-old.

The cute and gentle guy at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport who saw the 'Lunar Transfer Station Tacoma' badge on my hoodie and asked if I was from Tacoma, Washington because that's where you're from. You were sad to be traveling so much for the holidays (and I relate), and I was exhausted and wrecked by flu.
We crossed paths again as our gate changes bounced us around the airport like pinballs. Wish I had been less anxious and more clear-headed to talk with you.

We've heard that there can be 'too much of a good thing', but have you heard of psoriasis? Cuz the good thing that there's too much of…

@bjorklift maybe a link will work. I've seen it generate at least three variations on this. 😂
And finally is the album that kickstarted my love of working with synths, before I properly understood what a synth actually was.
Fictional ambient arctic terror, recorded with a 4-track Tascam tape deck and the Casio my dad played when I was a kid. It's noisy, lo-fi and repetitive, and I honestly appreciate my naivete here. Maybe a bit of the vibe from Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II, and inspired by Legowelt's ambient albums.
Here's another soundtrack that's a bit more whimsical, despite the fact that it's composed for a wartime propaganda/educational film about quartz.
Odd, aesthetically pleasing images of crystals accompanied by gummy analog synths. The vibe here is perhaps Wendy Carlos, Jean-Jacques Perrey, and that long-lost nature documentary that you vaguely remember from childhood.
Here's an 'original soundtrack' composed for rather harrowing and somber footage of nuclear tests performed at the Nevada Proving Grounds.
Full of spooky sad analog synths. Bit of a John Carpenter/Boards of Canada vibe.

They've been a creative resource and service for me since high school, before YouTube existed (!). Here are some oddities I've made using public domain media that they've kept intact and available to all.
i made a snow diorama to share with you
Hi! I'm Jaron. I like making sounds with synthesizers, and existing on a planet with people that make tiny games.
