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]
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]
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.

one for the tots
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]
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]
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.
Magical ambient guitar sampling [more inside]
It cannot be emphasized enough. Song #3 in my Unu Kanto Po Semajno series steals one from the Dead Kennedys' playbook. [more inside]
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]

2-minute jangly guitar pop song with vocals.... and a little bit of synth!!!!!!
i. Sitting ii. Changing iii. Standing iv. Spinning
The road trip song - a galloping guitar ramble underpinned by soaring synth strings. By Sredni Vashtar
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.
Today is my lovely wife's birthday so I am posting the song I wrote for her. [more inside]
Hard luck loser turns life around with the guidance of THE DARK LORD! Hard rock prog anthem thing, stick around for the big finish. It's sinfully long... [more inside]
A thinly veiled apology to a woman I hurt 15 years ago. [more inside]
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).
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.
My new unnamed project has recorded a buttload of songs, including this one. Weird dark pop. I guess. I like it. [more inside]
noodling around and playing with a guitar synthesizer and effects.
Tropical karaoke mix of the Sonny and Cher classic
A short piano piece that all spins out from the opening motto: "You are the sugar in my tea..."
crickets take over the world and ep2 - gargoyle, draws to an end
just more spacey frippertronics
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]
Just a short random sampler improv with a bit of guitar and recorder (of the plastic flute-type variety.) [more inside]
the 2nd ep begins [more inside]
Have a merry Synthmas with this peaceful electronic soundscape from the Men's Snarehouse. [more inside]
A dashed-off not-quite-synthwave instrumental that rolls around for a bit but doesn't really go anywhere. [more inside]
An upbeat synthwave / retrowave instrumental. [more inside]
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]
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]
My version of a popular holiday favorite. [more inside]
A little mashup/pastiche (mastiche?) of two of my favorite musicians. [more inside]
New Years. Listlessness and Watching Your Life Go Bye. But there is Love and Hope nestled deep in in the chorus. [more inside]
