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!
On Halloween, I walked down to the corner store for junk candy dressed as…
A Retired Bisexual Scarecrow Grandpa, evidently.
(aka me, another #introduction. Retired Grandpa is the least true, Bisexual Scarecrow is THE most true.)
chronic illness, social isolation
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. 🙈
Anodyne Institute is intended as a 'place' to visit and explore on the web, with a sort of selection of fictional retrofutures.
The channel typically has fizzly lo-fi video of synth meanderings, but I've also done some wordless tutorials that attempt to teach sound design through the demonstration of key parameters. Bloopy pointy fingers.
Here's a sound design and melody tutorial for Turquoise Hexagon Sun from Boards of Canada.
Here's a piece that's sorta half-music, half-demo scene, not-quite-a-song.
Melodic ambient synthesizer with swaying tempo like a hand-cranked music box.
