All About the Music
After trying Patreon and other services, I have decided to make my “private club” the VIP section at Bandcamp, at least as an experiment. I create content all the time, outside of my normal releases but I give it away for free on Instagram and Facebook. I will still put stuff up on these services, but not all of it, and what will appear there will go to the club first. I will also be much more open and reveal more of myself, my processes, and the things I do not want the general public to know about me and my music.
I have three tiers here. Let’s start a journey together.
Are you looking for music for relaxing, studying, reading, gaming, or just to enjoy and become the soundtrack of your day? Look no further. The album “Cosmic Feels” by Senator Jaiz is a New Age Ambient collection of soundscapes, a journey through space that can transport you to other worlds.
You can find the album on most streaming or digital sites. Follow this LINK to listen to find the album on some popular sites.
Who is Senator Jaiz?
I am an Experimental Jazz and Ambient composer and guitarist. I am also the composer and audio point person for the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in the Digital Media department.
I am a product of my influences, which include Jean-Michel Jarre, Gary Numan, Brian Eno, Levi Chen, David Arkenstone, Kitaro, Tangerine Dream, Aphex Twin, Massive Attack, Merzbow and, well, this list could get pretty long, so let’s leave it there.
My music is geared for the soundtrack of life. It could be a backdrop for the day to day, or even better for RPG and board gamers, filmmakers, manga and anime fans, readers, students, and all other dreamers. The soundtrack quality of my work means it can be your background or the center of your full attention. Much like Brian Eno described ambient music.
How’s this? “Experimental Synth Space Lounge music in a tidy Ambient Container Delivered in a Kilt (sometimes)”
As a vegan, I am trying to show the world the spiritual, environmental, and compassionate results of a plant-based lifestyle through my music and actions.
I also perform with my side projects Souls Leak Liquid Silver and Oregano Wrathbone. I host podcasts such as the DIY Creative and Spiritual Audio Journeys.
To bring music into the world that suits the purposes of the listener, no matter what that purpose is, be it studying, relaxing, meditating, playing games, zoning out, or listening intently.
I combine rock. electronic, orchestral, ambient, noise, and experimental sounds to create my soundscapes and music. I try to find that thing that no one else has. Sometimes I succeed, other times I don’t. To me, it is the journey that counts.
To bring a bit of relaxation, wonder, and spiritual enlightenment into the world. To alert the world to the plight of our environment and the innocent creatures that we exploit. To teach the world about the simple choice to aid both, which is a plant-based diet.
