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]
Curves 'n stolen wurds
For Lahore, Brussels, and my friend Meghan
2nd song of rpm album drones [more inside]
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.
Some Easter Monday techno [more inside]
Something like a pop song but not really.
1st song of my 2016 rpm project, drones [more inside]
A fist-pumper for the Friday drive home!
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]
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]
Just a little song.
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]
Borrowed the melody riff (and title, I guess) from this Raccoons classic.
Tender, ghostly, demented electronica. [more inside]
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]
a song about using mnemonic memory techniques, with Carlos from Los Primos playing lead guitar.
An homage to Kraftwerk, Underworld, et al, with a twist! [more inside]
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]
So I took my Jazzmaster to Lefkas, and this was the result. [more inside]
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.
This is a cover of both Lil Friendy's Marco Rubio (discovered via MetaFilter) and of Steve Reich's minimalist classic Come Out.
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.
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]
A loud, frenetic jam in F#, dancing between half-time/double-time, with synth slap bass!
A fave jam of the Twitter Band gang
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...
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.
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]
No drum beat or melody. Just some interlocking synth arps. For the Sunday crowd.
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]
It was snowing and what better to do than mess with the arpeggiator? [more inside]
Rough mix of a 3rd song (so far) for this year's RPM Challenge. Not sure I'm gonna make it at this point.
Jazz Trio [more inside]
America number one! [more inside]
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]
An older song; but a gooder one. Samples of seances, and other things.
Classical guitar, pump organ, harmonies, friends far away. [more inside]
