about

I’ve made music for myself since I was twelve—starting out on my digital piano’s arranger and moving up to GarageBand and finally Logic Pro. Depending on the year, my music has skirted around with atmospheric textures, spacey IDM, ambient drone, and occasionally more straightforward songwriting.

I’m constantly finding new kinds of music to get into, at the expense of my hard drive space, and it’s not easy for me to say what influenced what. All the music I listen to can be seen and judged on my last.fm profile, where I’ve faithfully scrobbled everything I’ve listened to since 2008.

I’ve used a few aliases over the years, for different styles of music:

Kaiein

My main project, and what I release all my electronic music under.

Silverpoint

A side-project for ambient drone—albums to sleep to.

Josh Sand

What my songwriting efforts will be released under, when the time comes.

You’re on your own

It was freshman year of high school. Cute, but kinda dumb? The good stuff is further down the page. You can find this fairly easily if you want, but I’m not volunteering anything (or denying its existence).

This is the first album released under the Silverpoint alias. It’s ambient drone: long, slow-changing, subtle, ominous, cold, minimal, eerie, solemn, majestic. Soundtrack to floating through a giant empty city. I feel strongly about this.

A best-of album from the sixteen hours of music I had made since Oneation. Leaving the Apple Loops and bad mastering in the past, it has become my personal justification for my music endeavors. Although taken from a relatively wide range of time, it’s consistent in its atmospheric mood even as it varies from IDM to ambient soundscapes to soft tranquil synthesizer loops to whatever Arena is.
