This is a piece I recorded for a silent short comprised of Public Domain footage from 1936 taken from the Prelinger Archives. let me know if you'd like me to share the video.
So zany presentation system I wrote is getting documentation so I'm writing a soundtrack, in remembrance of _why of course. [more inside]
A short exercise in "Hey! Do something for a mid-70's movie/TV sci-fi soundtrack!" [more inside]
"Titry" translates into English as "credits", as in for a film. It was inspired by the idea that this would make a great intro or outro song for the listing of film credits, whether or not we actually decided to pitch the song for that purpose. Maybe we will one day :)
My girlfriend said this would make a good theme song for a new Miami Vice reboot. I'm both proud and terribly ashamed of this notion. [more inside]
A short ambient walk on the ocean
An ambient-ish track I made as an attempt to make a videogame-soundtrack kind of thing. Made with Ableton Live, Sylenth, Predator and Absynth.

a minimal and sombre thing. sounds made by software and double bass. [more inside]
I made a little video the other day, inspired by the chocolate easter bunny a friend brought my daughter from Australia. It's a tragedy, in one act. This is the narration soundtrack, by Io Lula, who also happens to be my daughter. She doesn't work cheap, but she's the best in the business. Video can be seen at vimeo. [more inside]
Just a little rhythmic experiment, not actually gamelan but reminiscent.
A simple, brooding instrumental piece I wrote last year for an independent documentary - on guitar, bass and some samples. [more inside]
From the opening titles of an imaginary made-for-TV movie in which Peter Falk and Suzanne Pleshette learn to love again.
Juan and Don Benito discuss the heroes from their childhoods. [more inside]
Filtery drone from my JUNO 60 meets ukulele playing exactly four notes. No verse, no chorus, no changes, no development... just does what it does for 2 minutes and 43 seconds, then stops. It's the soundtrack for a video here.
Two days ago I shot some video: a reflection of a man riding a Tokyo train, watching another moving train (a shinkansen) pass by on a parallel track. I made this music today, to serve as accompaniment for the 58-second film. I uploaded the video earlier this evening to YouTube here.
Moody 120bpm synth techno soundtrack, inspired by a car chases at night. Created on the Korg EMX-1 / Kaossilator.
Abstract and minimal electronic piece. Inspired by movies like Manhunter and Tenebrae. Warning - beginning is quiet by comparison. [more inside]
...is a part of a little soundtrack I did for my kids. Their mock-trailer is... [more inside]
Just a tune I was playing. Gives me a feel like it could be in a movie scene. [more inside]

an overwhelmingly ambient texture, pierced with many elements of various density - scraped percussion, Latin and bluegrass gestures, strings, somber guitar notes and swirling electronics. Very soundtrack, very visual, particuarly for fans of Gustavo Santaolalla.
This song was originally written in 1945 by Lennie Hayton for the soundtrack of the Minnelli/Astaire MGM musical Yolanda & the Thief. Since I just started drinking my beloved morning latte again after giving it up for 2-3 months, it felt appropriate to do a little joyful a capella singing to the world for no real reason whatsoever. Oh, if only I could set up a 5 piece band in my office... sigh.
This is a song I wrote in 1992, I got around to recording it in 2004. There are a few imperfections and I would like to record it again...a better longer version. Tell me if you like it.
This is a cover of the Disney song, with me on two acoustic guitars. Recorded Dec. 4, 2000.
From the same record as "First Steps into Metropolis". More downtempo than pure cinema this time, but I seem unable to shake the latter.
The opening song on a soundtrack to a movie that doesn't exist. I've only had the balls to show my friends so far, so I figured I'd let you guys listen. Please don't be too brutal. (Unlike my first HiFi post, this isn't a sampling experiment.)
An utterly ridiculous song created in Soundtrack.
