Biography

WARNING: 99% of my mixes were done on headphones only.

Mungo is a music project by a guy named Bill. I like to experiment and wish to inspire musicians to create more interesting music. My music-sharing philosophy is to provide my works-in-progress because I may get hit by a bus tomorrow.

My instrument-playing skills are rudimentary: I consider myself more of a sound artist than a performer. Much of my music is abstract, ambient, psychedelic, experimental. I am fond of drones, repetition and distortion.

Many of these are sketches that serve as memories of motifs, instrument juxtapositions, textures and rhythms I might want to incorporate/refine into more structured pieces. After I update these, I usually leave the earlier versions available to keep comments and allow others the opportunity to listen to the evolution of my musical ideas and read previous listeners' comments.

I prefer instrumentals, both in what I create and what I listen to recreationally. More often than not when I hear a singing voice, I don't bother to try to understand the lyrics. I hear the voice more as an instrument than as a conveyer of semantics.

Current personal favorites include

Death Nougat is the name of a strictly loop-oriented music project by Bill. Death Nougat tracks are identified as collaborations with Mungo in order to get them on the Mungo podcast.
