deeply listening

Spent the last year learning to program and had no time for music. Finally got a job and a new-ish life so I thought it's time to get back to some things I enjoy. This one is different from my normal thing though I suppose I'v'e always had an attraction to analog merging with electronic. Maybe thanks to new order/joy division??? Though this doesn't sound anything like those.

Sapphic Melody

This is a poem fragment from Sappho set to music using Ancient Greek music theory as best as I understand it and generated by my Platonic Music Engine which generates music using every musical idea that has ever or will ever exist. [more inside]

They Though He Was Part of the Ship

This song highlights one of the possible dangers of crashing one's ship on a planet inhabited by a totally alien species. I recorded this a few years ago, deciding only recently to mix it down. It features a reklus-modified Korg DDD-1.

Purple Majesty/After-Party

The night he died, Prince came to me in a dream. I played electric piano and he played acoustic piano. He had all the best licks, naturally. :-) So I had to do this, even though it's like the Tenacious D song, Tribute. This is not the song I heard in my head, which was a jam in Am. No, this is just a tribute to that song. And it comes with it's own after-party! [more inside]

Take Me to Church - live performance

This is a recording of a performance I did last Friday of Hozier's "Take Me to Church" at my medical school's Evening of the Arts. I'm super proud of how it turned out. (Video here.) The first minute or so is the intro from the host of the show, then the song begins.

For song #8 of Unu Kanto Po Semajno, we answer the question, "What happens when not_on_display figures out he can just drag .mp3's into Garageband and manipulate them?" Some funky goddamn psychedelic shit, you'd better believe. [more inside]
