Welcome to Electric Earth Music

01 head shotElectric Earth Music is your online portal to John Hardin’s off-grid solar powered studio in Northern California. Here you can find out about new music, video and radio projects as well as upcoming performances and workshops.   My original didgeridoo music ranges from ambient trance and drone soundscapes to high energy dance music.  I also compose original soundtrack music for unique musical instruments I build from recycled materials and found objects, and I have a long history as a multi-instrumentalist, composer and recording artist.  If you are looking for something different to listen to, I do different.  If you need an original music act for a live performance, or an instructor to lead a workshop, I do that.  If you need original instrumental music for your film or video production, you’ll find plenty of that here too.
