Titanium is my 23rd solo release and includes compositions from 2011 through 2015. It's my first release since the illness years of 2017 and 2018. The page at archive.org is unfinished, it still needs information added but all the music and CD artwork is there. In small commemoration of Electronic Cottage's one year birthday. May there be many, many more. I hope you all find some enjoyment with this release.

"Blood Rust" was composed a couple years ago and is an unreleased piece. While I was playing around with a couple VST's I got one of the best-to-me distorted, feedback-like sounds. I proceeded to improvise and recorded "Blood Rust". I edited it for less repetition and may release the full version in the (nebulous) future. I hope you enjoy it.

During a daydream of the phrase "Electronic Cottage" I had a thought of Hal in a cottage doing audio work (I can't think of a different all-inclusive term for what Hal does) and so made this. The manufacturers' logos are just a small representation of the machines Hal has used in his vast and weighty lifetime. Hope y'all like it.
I've been working with analog synths, mainly on the electronics side, since the mid-1970's. In 1981 I purchased my ARP 2600. I worked on recording and mastering the intricacies of the 2600 until my first cassette release in 1990. Since 1981, I have also acquired an ARP Odyssey, Axxe and Sequencer, a PAiA Stringz and Thingz, several rack effects, stompboxes and home made synth modules. I used to have an Echoplex but it became unrepairable. It is featured on some of my early recordings.
