about

Written over the course of 3 months in late 2015, Cipher is my largest collection of music yet. It was made specially for the upcoming documentary, Banking on Bitcoin. Like the film, the music is inspired by the themes of technology, encryption, infrastructure, economics, and the people who struggle to make all these things work together.

Rather than my usual method of making musical themes and then weaving them into a whole soundtrack, I instead wanted to make the film's score sound like a cool, stylish collection of electronic music. Though the style is fairly consistent throughout, each track started from a new idea, unrelated to the others.

Because of the nature of the music, you can consider it an epic follow-up to what I started with Color Sky: deep, rhythmic electronica that's good for things like studying, working, or long periods of transit.

The gorgeous cover art was made by the amazing Sylvia Ritter: sylvia-ritter.com. You can buy prints of this and other great things she's made from that site.
