2. Cymbalom Solos (1985). Uncluttered bowhammer cymbalom pieces,
recorded in one afternoon. Always in print.
3. Mythos (with guitarist Barry Cleveland, flautist Kat Epple and
synthesist (the late) Bob Stohl; this recording was Cleveland's project.)
(1986) (Vinyl/out of print.)
4. The Moment's River (1987). Cymbalom, flutes, synthesizer and sampled
percussion in a more elaborately produced setting.
5. First Frost (with Barry Cleveland) (1986). Cleveland and Masley

6. Bells & Shadows (1989). A return to the simplicity of Cymbalom
Solos, but with several years' recording experience.
7. Voluntary Dreaming (1990). Barry Cleveland's exotic Scarlett Records
CD features Masley's trademark bowhammer cymbalom playing amid a sumptuous
tapestry of detailed guitar textures and polyrhythmic percussion. Now out
of print but sharp-eyed collectors may still find it in record stores.
8. Mystery Loves Company (1990). Features the Kabali and water-tuned
panpipes; also features Zakir Hussain on tabla. Rich, dense, experimental.
9. Sky Blues (1992). Excursions on cymbalom, autoharp; unique percussive
cymbalom pieces with "tribal" hand-drum accompaniment.
10. Cosmosis (with cellist Dan Reiter) (1992). Astonishingly broad
receiving antennae for improvisational inspiration: cymbalom, cello, and
a variety of flutes and panpipes.
11. Life in the Vast Lane (1993). Primarily solo cymbalom, with a
short sonic coffee break on Pan-Timbre-Reen and panpipes, this work alternates
between catchy arrangements in a modal vein and conscious attempts to set
aside familiar harmonic language.
