And the Sunrise Welcomes You Home

A short instrumental piece (featuring synth) in which I basically have fun building from a loop. This is my entry for the MeFi Music challenge to submit music inspired by a MeFi post (I Saw This Thing On The Blue And...). Credit actually goes to three MetaFilter-related posts from last month: two MeFi posts by not_on_display and one MeFi Music post by ignignokt; they inspired me to create electronic music again after a decade+ hiatus.

A Small Grey Box Filled With Joy

I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental. [more inside]

savory for me

Just an experiment of guitar electronic fusion I've been playing with. I'm planning on doing an album-full of these types of songs soon.

Pool Rules

A loud, frenetic jam in F#, dancing between half-time/double-time, with synth slap bass!

Game Night

I just loaded up Ubuntu Studio with some soft synths, and recorded this CarrotAdventure-inspired piece. It came out sounding like a game show theme, hence the name. [more inside]

Road Race

Instrumental with big tunes and riffs, and a driving cadence that's perfect for cycling (especially if the weather should force you to ride indoors). Bandcamp download (with artwork).

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]

Collisions

Uptempo, hard-driving instrumental for synth+piano, with elements of trance and classical. First track on my Anthem of the Heart EP. [more inside]

Robot Sunrise

Another song from my newish free EP of quirky electronic cheese, "Part Time Drum Machine." I sort of picture a mechanical sunrise operated by heavy robots intent on bringing light joy. You know. [more inside]

Metric Groove

From my new (free!) EP 'Part Time Drum Machine', this is an instrumental keyboard-based track driven forward by a cheap synth bass and Casio-ish beats. A different kind of style than you may have heard from me before. [more inside]

Fly Dog!

Flyball battle anthem. Not quite "Eye of the Tiger", to be sure, but you can still turn it up and rock out. Electronic instrumental. [more inside]

Anthem of the Mind

More massive amounts of Massive. I think it builds up nicely. Let me know what you think.

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 In The Image

New and much improved mix of a song from a few years ago. Kinda rock-metal-electronic fun with a pretty good helping of vocal harmonies. Critique away!

Call Me Luna!

This has techno stuff arguing back and forth with pianos, a theme that's conflicted about what meter it's in, a cadence that keeps trying to change the key down a whole step, and ponies. Plenty of ponies. But I think this is my last Luna project for a while now!

Prelude to Nightmare Night

A minor-key, rondo-like composition for piano, bass, percussion, and various squelchy electronic bits. Hail the coming of Princess Luna! [more inside]

Escape from San Clemente

Upbeat dancey-trancey music for driving fast and far away (from wherever you want to be far away from). Never mind the meter, you can dance to it!

Bushy Tails

Short, fun and bouncy, melodic, dancelike-although-odd-metered, all electronic instrumental. Sort of like a lobotomized Dream Theatre interpreted via Kitsune2 would be one way of putting it. [more inside]

This is what happens when a wimpy acoustic guitar player writes a song entirely with a vintage synthesizer. [more inside]

Can I Register Online Please?

This started as a little tune I made up a couple years when I was trying to register for classes at my community college using their online system which wasn't working. All the parts on this track were recorded by me using my friend Ian's microKORG XL.

Spacetime

A little progish - lots of analog synth, lots of interesting sounds, harmonies, counterpoint, a little odd meter, hopefully pretty catchy chorus, and one of the more obscure lyrics I've written (lyrics inside)... lots of stuff! [more inside]

There Is No

I don't even know what genre this would be considered. This started as three guitar tracks recorded for a very upbeat techno/house track with a beautiful female vocal. When it ultimately was not used for that song, I took the three guitars and built this slow groove thing around them. [more inside]

Trust (v2)

A polished up, broken down, mangled, different version of the song I posted a few days ago, and this time it's kind of complete. Criticism welcome & encouraged!
