Truth's A Patient Stalker

A new (very early) rough mix from a chamber pop project I'm doing called "Wishing Well Divers." It's sung from the perspective of Truth personified as a stalker patiently pursuing a corrupt business man. It features cello, piano, acoustic guitar, and an early, rough vocal cut (there are some changes still coming to the vocals, and the guitars will get a boost in the mix ). At any rate, it's a glimpse of where this is going. I welcome any (gentle) feedback. Lyrics below the fold. [more inside]

Outspeak

I thought I'd throw a few older compositions up here for fun. This is a short piano trio I composed in 2004. Lots of extended techniques and other academic foolery. But it still rocks a little, when it does.

Napoleonic blues - second song posted

A song I wrote the lyrics for and worked up the melody and progression with the band. Me on ukulele, Jamie singing and on glockenspiel, Justin on guitar, Ella on cello, Tina hitting a a tin. This was recorded before Christmas, again not the most beautiful of recording quality but it gives you a sense of the band's fuller sound with the cello. Any feedback or critique appreciated as always. [more inside]

face to face to face

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.

hospital walls

Guitar-based melancholy song with vocals. I've had this around for several years, and keep thinking I'll continue to dabble with the outro. I think it's time to just let it out. I wrote this after the breakup of a 7 year relationship. I like the lyrics, and the little solo, and many other things about it. The long fade-out ending is over-indulgent and a bit off-key, but imperfect as the song may be, it has heart.

Three Prayers in Irish Gaelic: I. Ár nAthair

Way, way back, I posted a request on Usenet for translations of some Catholic prayers into Irish. I wrote a vocal work with those translation for a composition class. For this recording, I used the solo cello sample in Reason and let MIDI take care of the rest. The harmonies weren't part of the original score.

The Weddling

I wrote this simple little song for my wife to walk down the aisle at our wedding. Written for cello and vibes, here it's more of a sketch done in Reason.

The Writing's on the Wall

"In the fires of Mount Doom, was forged our mighty song." My band's ode to itself. Check out the fake-out ending, and that's a real cello in the coda.
