Cardinal’s solo full-length album Asterisms was released in October 2020 on Arts & Crafts. Cardinal’s music utilizes modular synthesizers, vintage analog equipment, electric pianos, and samplers to create cinematic and dreamlike soundscapes. 

Cardinal’s photographic works come from a daily practice of collecting and photographing the natural environment, friends, and objects of interest with vintage Polaroid and 35mm cameras. His photographic works have been shown at Latitude 53 (Edmonton) and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge).
