About

Hi there -- I'm Miles (or mil). There's a sketch of me in the upper left. I'm into minimalist software, web design, philosophy, and music among other things.

My First Mixtape: Bufferbank

Over the past few months I've been working on putting together a small mixtape of lofi shorts. Entitled Bufferbank, my first mixtape is finally available for download. It's 15 tracks - about 10 minutes running time.
