"Into Air" release available now...

My track "Into Air,"  a collaboration with fellow Ember Music artist Coreena is available now. It is the lead track on Coreena's latest EP entitled Collabs + Remixes



Featuring collabs with Richie Dagger’s Crime, Modal Morphosis, Noisegasm, Ember Music artists Kurt Lorenz and (my other musical projectThe Never Were and remixes by Kjell, Stan Dart and J. Ohm.

I composed and performed the instrumental track and posted it online... Coreena heard it and asked if she could add vocals. She sent me her vocal recordings and I mixed the track... 

The EP has received several favorable reviews including a 10/10 review by Canadian music mag CPG. 

 "This EP is the most forward thinking piece we have heard this year. Coreena has the voice that is and will rise through the electronic genre ranks and our predictions are that she will be obtaining many requests for track features in the near future.

This EP is not your typical piece of electronic music. It's experimental, deep, dark, groovy, and sonically rich in sound. Each track has its place yet molds into one another like an extended set. Our favorite track was "Into Air". This spiritual trip of simple sounds makes you feel like it is never ending. The progression of quality sounds really hits the mind where it is necessary and is perfect food for the mind, body and soul."

Rating: 10/10



So here we are... I have just completed a massive year-long project and I'm ready to start on a new musical adventure. 

Over the last few years I have been working with my good friend Joe Love on an electronic- industrial project called The Never Were. We have a bunch of songs in demo form and I really like the direction it is going. 

I'm going to spend the majority of my music time this year on The Never Were as we still have much to do. There will be guitar recording sessions, lyric writing and vocal sessions... Rewrites, edits and all of the producing that goes with it. Most of which is new-ish territory for me.

wish me luck.. 

Kurt Lorenz & Daniel Davis - LIVE - 2014-09-27

My fellow Ember Music artist Daniel Davis and I recently played a live electronic soundtrack to the 1985 cult-classic anime film Angel's Egg (天使のたまご Tenshi no Tamago). The event was the first show in what we hope will become a series of shows at the amazing Scarecrow Video in Seattle entitled "Live Soundtracks to Strange Films."

Search For Meaning 2013 Soundscape...

This is a soundscape mix that I created for the 2013 Search For Meaning Book Festival sponsored by Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry. The Festival had an interactive installation which allowed participants to experience/express their Search For Meaning through the 5 Senses.

The mix was created from stock sound effects.

New Release of Old Material

I am happy to announce my latest release Isaz, a 4 track EP featuring experiments in sound, processed loops and field recordings. All of these tracks were conceptualized, recorded, programmed and mixed between January and September 2009. Available now as a free download from Bandcamp.

Isaz - Track by Track

01. This is just my voice

This is just a looping, processed sample of me saying "this is just my voice" 

02. Cargo

Processed sample of a train running through Carkeek Park in Seattle, WAUSA. This track was recorded with an M-Audio MicroTrack II digital recorder using the standard t-microphone. I used Ableton Live 6 for processing through an Auto Filter, a Simple Delay and a Resonator.

03. Batavia

This is the soundtrack to a memory. Flying in my fathers small plane from Buffalo. NY to Batavia, IL. when I was 6 years old. A mix of excitement and utter dread. I feel like I captured those feelings in this track.

04. Eye

Original Experimental Music/Sound (by Kurt Lorenz) made completely on the iPhone using BeatMaker, NLogSynth, and iGendyn. (Slo-Mo Vocalizations are from the videos audio track.) Each app was recorded directly into an audio channel in Ableton Live and some basic mixing/compression applied. This track is the soundtrack to an experimental film I created entitled "Eye" you can see the video below or here: www.vimeo.com/5243888
