Music is the nucleus of PatternBased. Other forms always relate back to the tones and beats and harmonies we uncover. Traditional styles and rigid genre-ing are rarely a consideration. The music is most often functional.. for creating a specific mood/notion or for inspiring movement and stillness. Use the links below to explore PatternBased’s music in three ways: Listen to releases as albums, search the PatternBased catalog with our search tool or enjoy some carefully curated playlists.

Akron Ohio electronic trio Low in the Sky, Los Angeles groups Insect Sounds and Hill Sleepers as well as film scores and an ever expanding catalog of cuts experimental to commercial and ambient to rhythm-heavy, albums and track groupings are our preferred format and BandCamp is, by far, our favorite service.
