Looks like rain

I sampled Morphine's classic 1992 number You Look Like Rain for this one. This is my Dec/Jan #MeFiMusicChallenge and #DoWhatScaresYou entry. [more inside]

@Ummagma 'Kiev' (Haioka Remix)

I think the term remix is a big put off for many people and, if measuring according to the number of remixes out there that are just so standard dance-floor filler, it's understandable why there is such a stigma attached to this word. But there are moments of light shooting through when a producer or gifted musician manage to 'reconstruct' a song rather than just 'remix' it. Likely that's where the term 'rework' has started to become used more and more often.... to set them apart. Whatever you want to call it - here is one such track that differs significantly from the original in all it's stunning rework/remix glory. Kudos to Japanese producer Shintaro Haioka for this gift to Ummagma.

No Longer Defined (Simple Edit)

A simple version of a cool, brooding electronic jam. Underlying ambient riff accentuated with minor chord synth jabs alternating in EQ/phaser/flanger/stereo effect layers.

Alaska

I went to Alaska cruise several times and one day, I sat in the library and looked out the ocean from the window. It was such a thrilling moment and I created this music with my little laptop computer. I tried to describe the massive and spiritual scenery of Alaska and its vanity as well. Its "Gold Mining" starting in 1870, which was mainly all about fantasy and led so many people to tragedy, was expressed in this music.

west life

Another hit!...or not. I moved to the west some time ago and decided to celebrate by writing a song. [more inside]

Lama (Dunaewsky69 Remix)

This is one spacey tangent-filled whirlwind of an electronic mix, slicing elements of Ummagma's original version of 'Lama' into a whacked factory of digital sound - not for the light hearted when it comes to electronica, but certainly worth the trip :)

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]

Remix Snippet

What might be the outcome of taking a rather dreamy pulse-based trance inducing track, stripping it back, adding an addictive disco electronic undertone and phasing ghost-like vocals here and there (and rather rare)…? Have a listen and then you will know :)

Lama (SOS Remix)

When you dig the original of a song so much that you can't imagine how anybody could possibly ever dissect it and re-embody it in an alternate format, sometimes you are pleasantly surprised when indeed someone comes along who capably does just that - with flair, good taste and a handful of cards up their sleeve, dealt ever so cleverly within the remix they have created. That's what we're talking about with this Sounds of Sputnik take on Ummagma's 'Lama'.

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]

River Town (Mind Movies Remix)

Synthpop, Electronica, Indietronica, Electro bliss by the earful and here for the taking. Although it will be a while until this track will be published on any official release, you might enjoy this sneak preview.

Lama (Mind Movies Remix)

Sometimes the original version of a song can be so cool that you think that any remix might just destroy it… and then someone thrills your tits by creating something new from it that sucks you write in a smooches you from the first note. This is one such rework.

Lama (Dunaewsky 69 remix)

I love it when one talented artist can take the work of another talented artist, creatively metabolize it, and then craft output that is impressive in it's own right. This remix takes a quirky electro approach to Ummagma's track 'Lama'. Hope you enjoy it. [more inside]

Ummagma - River Town (Mind Movies Remix)

This is one Ummagma track that has been totally turned on it's head, taking what was a dreampop folkrock-ish track and utterly transforming it into an whirling electro-dance track with traces of vocals from Shauna McLarnon. One slight change from the previous version. [more inside]

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.

Cordimitic

An electronica track (possibly describable as “techno”) I created in one day for the 20th Project. It starts with a kick/hi-hat (and later a snare) as well as synth bass and lead lines; the track itself is in 7/4 time. [more inside]

Been There (working title)

One of my first attempts at making music on a tablet (well, except for the guitars)... This is still very much a work in progress, but I kind of like how this mix is shaping up. This will eventually have vocals. Part of a bigger new project I'm working on under the tentative working title "The Big Dismal."

Live and Let Die

If you ever thought that there was no place for a little drum n' bass in the world of shoegaze and dreampop, hopefully this song will prove you wrong :) Somewhat of a feel like Stereolab, Broadcast and Lush rolled into one. [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

Lama (Dunaewsky69 Remix)

Kiev-based electronic instrumentalist Dunaewsky69 (a.k.a. Oleksandr Gladun) is one of Eastern Europe's most productive DJs. Otherwise dubbed as the "electronic pilot", his most recent EP "Termination Voice" was nominated for the Qwartz Electronic Music Award. This is his latest remix for Ummagma "Lama". This remix is a departure from the original Ummagma version of "Lama", but hopefully you can also appreciate this remix. [more inside]

100 bars for Jennifer Higdon

One of my favorite harmonies has long been two major chords separated by a major second, which I first remember hearing in Higdon's Concerto for Orchestra. This is a little meditation on that sound in largely 7/8.

My ambient tune "Morning" showed up in this touching Source Filmmaker video (then on Valve!)

Morning is the first of four pieces from a release that I did earlier this year called "Within the Darkness." Quiet, atmospheric textures. I woke up one morning and this fellow on YouTube named MetalSeer had put up this really nice video from Valve's Source Filmmaker. [more inside]

Just a short something I whipped up with my Elektron Monomachine. It has a retro video game soundtrack sort of sound, a territory I've been exploring lately. I hope you like it.

The End of The Beginning

My second effort in the electronica realm. This has sampled acoustic guitar, and is a sort of chillout tune with soul. I'm actually pretty proud of this one. Sounds to me like a sunset.

joe's last mix

A fantastic piece of symphonic music with deep connections to electronica, joe's last mix by Tanner Menard is a fun ride (this performance is by one of my ensembles with me conducting). I've posted this before, but he and I are doing something different with the piece, and I'm wondering if any of you are interested in participating.... [more inside]
