Composer, sound designer, producer, and musician for film, theater, avant-garde classical, sound art, hip-hop, left-field dance, indie rock, and points in between. He is a keyboardist, baritone, guitarist, and conductor. He lives in Los Angeles.
“Special mention must be made to the original score by Peter Bayne, sounds that are
arguably authentic to early 17th Century; a treat for the ears and one that helps us follow
the quick ups-and-downs of the plot”
“Composer/Sound Designer Peter Bayne deserves special recognition for his part in setting
the tone. Opening strains of eerie, discordant music as the lights rise indicate this is to be
no ordinary play.”
“Peter Bayne’s sound design and mood-setting original music enhances the drama and
power of every scene (much of the show is underscored like a movie, which adds greatly
to the show’s emotional impact)”
Stagescene LA (The Miracle Worker – Hayworth Productions 2009)
“Peter Bayne’s tasteful yet plaintive original music”
Stunning new release from Daniel Lopatin, synth magician, and new, new age leading light. This has got to be the most contemporary sounding, vintage debris oriented, stoner record from the hypnagogia set. This is why people really listen to OPN and only name check Ferraro.
Very intriguing release from this Montrealer, like a poppier, dance informed Broadcast for the Nite Jewel crowd. Weird bits of folk, lofi post rock, dreamy scenarios, bargain basement samples. The record seems to loose some focus at about track 5; songs like 'Grisgirs' in which for the last minute of the song we hear her singing what sounds like "meow meow meow" over and over. Sorry that's just not my kind of weird. The doomier stuff also fails to resonate much, I think largely because there's no mid-low range in any of the production. Lots of compressed digi-trash which all seems to work with the indie-pixie stuff, but not with the Grouper-like chanteuse stuff. Still, it's a cool entry. Ladies of the indie midstream eyeing that space that Bjork used to occupy remain unfilled - take note.

Sorry Pitchfork, this new Girls record sounds like a blander Soul Asylum sharted on a Crazy Horse record. Can we stop the mid-90's shit-rock pilfering? Same goes for you Kurt Vile. Writing a boring song that resembles boring songs from 20 years ago is still writing a boring song.
