Filk

Evilspork and I were brainstorming in chat about Political filk to the tune of "Gilligan's island". I'm not a musician, but I thought I'd stick some of the lyrics we came up with here in case someone wanted to run with them [more inside] posted by pjern at 8:29 AM PST - 0 comments

Things Are Getting Frightening

With this tune I reveal once again my unscrupulous leftist agenda by *politicizing* Halloween. And the video introduces an old friend of mine, Esmerelda the Skeleton. Hell of a gal, mighty fine dancer.

This particular recording is an experiment in recording and producing only on an iPhone and was recorded, mixed, and mastered in a day or so using only my phone, my voice, and an acoustic guitar and bass.

Asleep at the Knife

Turns out my version of the serenity prayer involves a lot more quantum sci-fi and psycho-killer imagery. Been working on this for a good while, trying to figure out how to program drums for a slow 6/8 time. Pretty happy with how it finally came together, but I'd love some pointers. Still worried it's a bit too saturated, but that's kinda my MO. Lyrics in the fold. [more inside]

Keep My Love in Amber

I played all the tracks, and billiebee came up with a melody and lyrics based on a Yeats poem, "The Lake Isle of Innisfree". It's about bees. [more inside]

Be a light

It's been a while since I posted anything, so here goes with a slightly off-kilter, folksy, moody vocal and guitar piece.
