Hello! My name is Tyler Barber, based in Oakland, California, and I've been writing songs/soundscapes for 15+ years. I specialize in ambient, experimental, drone, dance and pop songwriting, but welcome a project in almost any genre. I like to emphasize the unconventional, to evoke a sense of surprise and curiosity within a listener. Bjork, Aphex Twin, Sigur Ros, Tim Hecker, John Maus and Radiohead are my biggest influences.
My songwriting oscillates from bittersweet melodies, to catchy pop-like tunes, to dark brooding existential dread dirges. If you're looking for something creative and perhaps genre-bending, I'd love to work with you.
I am a multi-instrumentalist and have a highly collaborative process. As a lifelong gamer and indie game developer myself, I understand the unique workflows and challenges to the specific media.
Email me with any inquiries or questions. Looking forward to hearing from you: firstname.lastname@example.org.
