Seduction

This track is part of a project that heavily features Swamp XT, a virtual synthesizer by one H. G. Fortune. Working playlist title is "Succubus/Incubus", but I'm looking for other ideas. [more inside]

You Can't See It

My son asked me to record his heartbeat for some school thing a few months ago. I had this heartbeat lying around so I added some Moog to it and Bob's your uncle it became a synthpop song.


Emerald City

Some Easter Monday techno [more inside]


Lesser Gods

Something like a pop song but not really.


March 27

A fist-pumper for the Friday drive home!

Mississippi River (feat. greenish) [cover of orig. by Izintombi Zodumo]

For GregNog's Mefi Cover Challenge and Song #7 in the Unu Kanto Po Semajno collection, I roped greenish and her awesome set of pipes all the way in from across the ocean! [more inside]


March 23

Chambers

Remixing a Peruvian chicha tune, discovered in this thread. [more inside]


A Legacy Denied

Finally finished my latest project, VOIDBREAKER. Ominous space synths, gritty breakbeats and a consciously gritty production. This is the fourth track from the EP just released on Spotify. [more inside]


March 22

Further

Just a little song.


March 14

Warmup Jam

This was recorded by the band I'm in (Ghost Flowers) on August 1, 2013, at our practice space before the actual practicing-of-songs started. It's a thirteen-minute variation on one chord, has nice ebbs and flows, and has a steady mid-tempo beat. [Not part of my "Unu..." series, just filler while I juggle four songs of that at once.] [more inside]


March 11

growinup3.0

Borrowed the melody riff (and title, I guess) from this Raccoons classic.


March 10

Thornsong

Tender, ghostly, demented electronica. [more inside]


March 9

I Need A Good Day

I play bass in this power-pop-rock band called Buzzie. Song written by John McElhenney with minimal arrangement contributions by the rest of us. [more inside]


Mind on Mnemonic

a song about using mnemonic memory techniques, with Carlos from Los Primos playing lead guitar.


March 8

Gameltronic

An homage to Kraftwerk, Underworld, et al, with a twist! [more inside]


March 7

Going Nowhere

This mp3 was converted from a video I made, recording stereo audio straight into my phone. It's a rough draft with minimal instrumentation and arrangement I'm hoping to develop further with a group that recently started coming together called The Wishing Well Divers. [more inside]


March 5

Sweetness in Greece

So I took my Jazzmaster to Lefkas, and this was the result. [more inside]


March 4

Blank Maps (Cold Specks cover)

Got a MIDI controller, which I'm superdy duper excited about, and figured I'd put it to work by fulfilling Greg Nog's Mefi Cover Challenge, covering Cold Specks' Blank Maps. Quick 'n dirty.


Rubio Out and Show Them

This is a cover of both Lil Friendy's Marco Rubio (discovered via MetaFilter) and of Steve Reich's minimalist classic Come Out.


March 3

Beach Pajama Party!

Song #6 in my less-and-less-aptly-named Unu Kanto Po Semajno series. Kinda poppy and abstract... you know those old Beach & Surf movies of the late 1950's, early 1960's -- the kind starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon? Or like, Sally Field in Gidget? This is the kinda music I'd wanna dub over the original score.


Musical Mesostic as generated by the Platonic Music Engine

In case you haven't had your shot of modernist/postmodernist classical music today here is a musical analogue to John Cage's mesostic method of generating texts. Warning, the music starts off very softly and then has loud bits. If you listen carefully you just might hear something familiar embedded within the stream of notes. [more inside]


March 2

Pool Rules

A loud, frenetic jam in F#, dancing between half-time/double-time, with synth slap bass!


February 28

Blueshell

A fave jam of the Twitter Band gang


February 27

Small Blue Thing (Suzanne Vega cover)

Recorded this quick and dirty into my phone, so there's a few bumps here and there, but overall OK. Not really my optimal vocal range though...


February 26

"You'll Be Back" (Hamilton cover)

Starting on my birthday this year, I set a goal to learn a song a week and cover them on YouTube. Since I knew of Hamilton primarily through MeFi posts, this seemed like a good pick for the FPP Challenge.


February 22

Keep Your Hands to Yourself (Georgia Satellites cover, Interpolated with "The Theme to The Great White North" and Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Free No. 10")

...in Sleng Teng Riddim style, no less. Song #5 in my Unu Kanto Po Semajno series. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE SILLY. [more inside]


February 21

a new kind of beat

No drum beat or melody. Just some interlocking synth arps. For the Sunday crowd.


Knockin On Heaven's Door

I am playing all the instruments and doing all the vocals in this recording. There are no software tacks. Youtube, Band camp. I recommend good headphones or good speakers for this recording. Small speakers are likely to distort a bit. [more inside]


Snow Drift

It was snowing and what better to do than mess with the arpeggiator? [more inside]


February 20

It's Not Enough To Hate Your Name

Rough mix of a 3rd song (so far) for this year's RPM Challenge. Not sure I'm gonna make it at this point.


Winter Light

Worthless

America number one! [more inside]

Blossom Jam II

This year's blossom jam, out by coincidence a year after the 1st one almost to the day. Happy blossom season to all the Victorians! [more inside]


February 17

Becoming a Ghost

An older song; but a gooder one. Samples of seances, and other things.


February 16

Jonathan's Guitar

Classical guitar, pump organ, harmonies, friends far away. [more inside]
