Ruby Prelude

Piano solo. This opens none too gently at about 138bpm and covers a lot of territory inside three minutes. It should flow nicely into its companion piece, Turquoise Migration. [more inside]

Risks too Much

A musical theatre duet from a show done at the Halifax Feast Dinner Theatre in Nova Scotia in 1990. Recorded in studio the same year with the performers from the show. [more inside]


Love Will Find a Way

This is the first song I've written in years! I decided to quickly record of a take of it and share. Hopefully the quality of it isn't too bad or distracting. I don't want to say too much about the meaning behind the song, but it has a lot to do with breaking cycles of pain that are passed down to us, and keeping an open mind and heart in the face of it.

TubularTots

one for the tots


February 4

KOFF KOFF SHHH

For song #4 in my Unu Kanto Po Semajno project, I assembled clips from a BBC Sound Effects CD in a rhythmic way. It's a duet! Possibly NSFW.

First demo for RPM2016. 9 songs to go! [more inside]


February 2

Unborn

A track from a project I'm working on; after years of making pure electronic music, I've decided to add guitar to the mix, and remove the beats. Ambient stuff. [more inside]


February 1

Lorraine

another short-form pop demo w/vox.... struggling to get the lyrics, 2nd verse and overall phrasing ironed out, so wanted to crank out the demo at least so I can move onto something else for a while.

Lava/Angel

Magical ambient guitar sampling [more inside]

Donald Trump is a Fascist Asshole Pig

Song #2 in my Unu Kanto Po Semajno series, where I am attempting to record one song per week in 2016. This song represents the period of Jan 9 through Jan 22. (I'm already off by a week, but I'll catch up.) [more inside]

Kiev (Copycat Remix) by @Ummagma

I am one of those people who, when I listen to a remix of any given track, set the bar really high and I'm pretty much hoping for a total transformation of the song into another creature, so to speak. That is exactly what happened with this recreation of Ummagma 'Kiev' when put in the hands of master Swedish remixer Copycat. I hope you enjoy the result just as much.

All Right Here

A thinly veiled apology to a woman I hurt 15 years ago. [more inside]

A Five-Cornered Square

Another noodl-ey instrumental - the ingredients of this one are a guitar driving a synthesizer and a multiFX over a bed of soft-synths and drum emulator(s).


January 9

The Question and the Answer

A short instrumental I wrote on the bass in 1989, but never got around to recording until now. This is song #1 in my series "Unu Kanto Po Semajno" where I plan to record approximately one song per week during 2016. This song covers the period January 1 through January 8.


January 6

Sitting On A Halo

Santa put a new saturation plugin in my stocking. I......may have overdone it a bit on this quick song about appreciating life and what you have - just in time for the New Year. [more inside]

The Fifth of Never

Just a short random sampler improv with a bit of guitar and recorder (of the plastic flute-type variety.) [more inside]

Kitchen Deconstruction (Edit)

My wife Nadine decided to do a little reorganizing in the kitchen a week or so ago. I pitched in, but set up my handy little Tascam DR-05 to record the resulting racket... [more inside]

Coventry Carol - strings

This medieval English carol is certainly not cheerily optimistic-sounding, but might not quite qualify as pessimistic. "Somber" is better - a mood rarely evoked for Christmas. [more inside]

wc

My version of a popular holiday favorite. [more inside]

Chanda Pant II by Anna Meredith Monk

A little mashup/pastiche (mastiche?) of two of my favorite musicians. [more inside]
