Here are unreleased or yet to be released pieces of music, and different versions of older tunes.

THE 80s (Phase 1) (2017)
Around 2013 I began recording 80s versions of some of my songs. These three are the ones I've got around to complete, so there might be a few more waiting down the line.
As the 1980s were the last good old days when real music was being made I decided to record on tape using analog synths, tube amps, etc., nothing digital. Oh, the time and money I spent looking around for any kind of working analog equipment... Kidding, I did it all in the box using free plugins only.

BARISTA (2017)
A blend of acoustic instrumentals with a tinge of electric guitar and synthesizer.
After having released "Colour Blind" I decided, over a damn fine cup of coffee, to put together a new album using some leftovers, old ideas that had been lying around, and some new ones. To make things interesting I set myself a deadline, April 1st, 2017. So there you have it, an album completed at the eleventh hour.

TIRED & OUT OF TUNE (2012)
Recordings of some of the songs from Best Of and Nothing Fancy and a couple of leftovers in order to show the way they are played live.
This is not a concert recording. However, if it was, the lack of audience noise would not have been out of place as the last gigs lacked an audience.
One man, one guitar, a few harmonicas and a bunch of mistakes.

PADDED MACHINERY (2009)
Psychedelic sleep music. Kind of.
Instrumental music made mostly with synths and drum machines.

released September 15, 2009
NOTHING FANCY (2009)
The album Nothing Fancy consists of acoustic songs featuring sparse use of electrical instruments and effects.
Additional performer:
Altug Yanardag

released February 16, 2009
BEST OF (2008)
The songs were written and recorded over a couple of years. No, they weren't labored over for years. Eventually when the time came to gather these glorified demos in one place and release them as an album, a debut album nonetheless, the not-so-bright idea of calling the album "Best Of" appeared.
The preferred criticism of this album would be "If this is the best, I can't dare to imagine the worst."
