Dream Job: Music Producer, 3-2-1 Contact, 1982

What happened was this: I discovered an Ableton tutorial about how to create a pretty convincing shitty-old-tape effect, and then I upgraded my phone to iOS 7 and heard the new ringtones (which are actually really nice), and then I started noodling around, and I made a little thing of which I am unreasonably fond.

Mouth music: Made for my brother on his bday when I had an Ableton rig but no cash

Miami Dice

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]

Peace Kids

A song I wrote when I got back from Japan. With field recordings from Japan. I said I was going to go back and work on it more, but I really don't know what to do and am kind of just complacent with what I have right now. [more inside]

Outside #2

Summertime gives me a lot of time to write music. Especially outside. This track samples "Do While" by Oval. I wanted to turn an ambient track into something a bit more danceable. Any thoughts?

Aim

An ambient song with some loops and drums and stuff. The first thing I've written in months.

Ready for War

My friends made a rap song...then they asked me to remix it for an album they're releasing soon. Here is the result. It samples the amazing reggae song, Uptown Top Ranking by Althea and Donna.

Song 3 - Driving Reprise

A track I'm working on for a concept EP. Worked on it instead of going to compsci lecture today. Crazy resonators. Way more rhythmic than anything I've done in a while. [more inside]

Pretty entrancing, happy song written after seeing the Mountain Goats with my girlfriend. It's all electronic, so don't expect anything similar to The Mountain Goats. It's just happy, is all. [more inside]

Radio

A song inspired by the recreation of the 808 Cowbell by Francis Preve. Basically just started off with a simple chord progression and Francis Preve's "Less Cowbell" patch, and went off from there.

A remix of a bandmate's song concept. First night with Ableton Live, and it's entirely worth the learning curve.
