Wave Collector

Hi, I’m Neal Wright. Wave Collector is my electronic music project. Collecting samples from nature, travels, and everyday life, I creates textured sonic compositions.

Drawing inspiration from artists like Chrome Sparks, Gold Panda, Flying Lotus, Machinedrum, Boards of Canada, Teebs, and Shigeto, I tell a story with every track, letting the source and circumstance of the field-recorded samples inform the composition. As a long-time turntablist, I also uses a turntable and mixer for scratching and sample manipulation during live shows.


I’m based in Portland, Oregon, where I compose music in my home studio, The Wave Kitchen.

Why not listen to some of my music?

If you like it and want to support me, you can buy some merch.
