Paranoid Shepard

This is an endlessly rising Radiohead cover vignette; a section from Paranoid Android rises a whole step and repeats itself, and does so again, six times total, before returning to where it started, as a kind of large-scale take on the Shepard tone. [more inside]

The Golden Age (Beck cover)

A synthed out, vocoded take on Beck's extremely non-synthy song off of Sea Change, as an excuse to fiddle around with Reason 8. [more inside]

Butterfly Nets

This is a cover of Bishop Allen's "Butterfly Nets." While the song is a favorite of teenage girls on with ukeleles on Youtube, I am instead a 34-year-old baritone with Garageband and an OP-1.

East Harlem

Still on the horse, this time with a Beirut cover! This one took a lot longer, 3 nights of iPad work. Beirut usually has a lot of brass instruments, so this one was a real challenge, but I'm proud of how it came out. [more inside]

Hallelujah (drone version)

Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.

燃えろいい女 (Moero Ii Onna)

Another Saladabar song. This is a rough mix of a song we were asked to cover for a compilation of 80s Japanese rock songs. [more inside]

California Song

A cover of one of my favorite songs by the Mountain Goats. Starts quiet, swells a little.
