The bones of this song were a proposal for a corporate jingle I was writing... [more inside]

nice small plate

Percussive acoustic guitar through tape echo, with processed vocal. I don't know what you call this kind of music.

This is Wrong

Sample reduced synthetics, atonal feedback, and other fancy marginally (ir)relevant musical gibberish. It's loud, and isn't that really all you wanted? [more inside]

Dancing Alone

Late night drinking and making music. It's not so much dancing as it is thrashing around and breaking things, but to each his own. [more inside]

The Flank of Bridenstein

I had a bit of fun with this: it's about a relationship gone wrong. I believe that the dual bass part is rhythmically interesting. Double bass and synth bass rhythmically intertwine and are coupled with a synth trumpet. There may be some Brian Eno influences a la The Drop. My album is available for $5 download at CD Baby: The Dividing Range. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/theseedsofautumn

made with small wooden boxes and bicycle spokes. Very dancy, if you dance kinda funny. [more inside]

socks

Downtempo! Meandering beat, melodic electronic. I'm kind of into making synthesizers sound like samples right now, so everything came out of a synth of some sort. [more inside]

Administrative Professionals' Day

There are many hot dance jams about the lifestyles of the hot, rich, and fabulous. There are comparatively few about administrative professionals. And perhaps even less about their oft-overlooked holiday (this Wednesday, April 22).

accreting protostar

High dynamic range and distortion wrapped in a a heartbeat-like 73 BPM.

Ibot Ubot Robot Nobot

An upbeat synthy breaksy tune. The final version of what previously sounded like this, but with samples stripped out for a cleaner effect.

we knew he was out there

muffled, glitchy beats in five layers [more inside]

while making an attempt to escape the city

Howling wind ambience, strongly beat-oriented, and spikes of high and low notes

Spooky Bitch

Messing around with Ableton Live. It might be too long, but I don't care. [more inside]

Your Turn

A breakbeat/big beat spy song -- one part Propellerheads ripoff, one part Space Ghost nonsense. [more inside]

Concept (Remix)

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

Pocket Venus

A not-so-tall song about a short, sweet object of desire. Wait, can I try that again? [more inside]

in memories

A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]

Running

After reading this Wikipedia entry in songs in unusual time signatures, I decided to try to put together a piece along the same lines. Except all the various rhythm and instrumental parts have different time signatures, including free time. Oh well.

Saturday night at the Ranch

This is what happens when the neighborhood kids crash my party. I dropped the beats, they uh, did something. There's not much musical talent here per se, but it is an interesting social snapshot. There were four kids, it's difficult to make them out because they all sound the same. It's really funny to me that they all think that they are future rap stars. Fo Shizzle!

In5thWithPedalDown

I did this about 7 years ago in my old apartment on W. Fullerton in Chicago. I used to play under the name Skycraft. It has a break I lifted from Little Miss Lover and then I chopped it up in ProTools. Guitar played through ring modulator into an amp covered with aluminum foil. Enjoy.

An Urgent Intimacy Awash Their Hearts

A study on electronic vs. acoustic elements, with a slant towards elementary canon-type stylings. Written and recorded on one rainy night. Recently remastered for a 'best of 2002-2006' compilation.

Outta My Way

One of my first attempts with GarageBand. "Outta My Way" is the title song of what I envisioned would be an "album" chronicling my decision to move from Washington, DC to rural Vermont. This particular song was intended to be about my work day.

German Cat Had Deadly Strain of Bird Flu

A little groove thing about the H5N1-positive German cat from awhile back. Beats via Sheep Beats; newsclips via Google Video; questionable vocals via my larynx.
