How I Create Generative Ambient Music
I was recently interviewed by Tim Cole from Intermorphic Generative Music systems about how I use their generative music software Wotja to create infinitely generating ambient music to enhance meditation, creativity, relaxation and well-being. Tim and his brother Pete have been major innovators in generative music software since the 1990’s! I’m honored to be in conversation with them.
I discovered Wotja in 2017 while looking for ways to create music to go with images from my series A Glimpse of Infinity. That sent me on a deeply rewarding exploration of sound synthesis, effects and creating infinitely generating music.

If you’d like some to experience some expansive ambient music to inspire creativity, relaxation, meditation and a sense of well-being visit my Bandcamp artist page for 3 free listens/track before being asked to purchase. Unlike other platforms, Bandcamp sends the majority of their revenue to the artists creating the music. It’s also a great place to discover new music and connect with other musicians and fans.
My music page has descriptions of each of my albums and direct links. You can also find my ambient music on your favorite steaming service by searching my name.
I’d love to hear how my music effects you. Does it help you focus? Do you feel more creative when listening? Does it help relieve stress? Do you use it to improve your meditation or yoga practice? Maybe it helps you sleep?
Please follow me on Bandcamp and leave your feedback. I make music because there’s something I want to hear or a mood I want to create. I’m always curious to hear how others experience it and find your feedback inspiring.

Aric’s talk will explore the creative process revealing the ideas and inspiration behind his artwork over the past 40-plus years. With childlike curiosity he will share how an experimental approach to photography helped him express his interests in science and spirituality through images, videos and music that suggest profound connections between the cosmos and our selves. This approach ultimately lead him to create work essential to overcoming the anxiety, uncertainty and pain of his two cancer journeys with commitment, creativity and courage.
Whether you consider yourself an artist or not this presentation will inspire you to discover your creativity and its potential for transforming your life.
