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.

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.

A Legacy Denied

Finally finished my latest project, VOIDBREAKER. Ominous space synths, gritty breakbeats and a consciously gritty production. This is the fourth track from the EP just released on Spotify. [more inside]

Snow Drift

It was snowing and what better to do than mess with the arpeggiator? [more inside]

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).

Bivball Instrumental

This is a short song I wrote to accompany my brother's ad for his new iphone game. (Bivball is the name of the game). Fun project with short turnaround. It's a little clunky, but on the one millionth listen it suddenly levels up to "pretty good" (try it, you'll see). Comments welcome. Thanks for listening.

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]

one note

Based on The World Famous' challenge idea in this thread, to make a song using only one note. [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

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]

Dione

Electronic instrumental, 80's style arpeggio, loud bass and an extremely simple melody. [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.

a strange and mysterious adventure

This instrumental track was originally named "Em wrong" because it came out of absentmindedly playing my guitar while watching tv and accidentally strumming an E minor chord incorrectly on the 3rd fret. The resulting song has an uneasy, mysterious vibe. [more inside]

ninety second instrumental #2

More fashion house/website music, but they didn't go for this one either... hey, whaddayagunnado?

ninety second instrumental

Back at work as resident composer for a Tokyo fashion house... this time they want four 90-second instrumental spots, for web presentations. Handed this one in to them the other day, but they nixed it: too dramatic, just not right for the project. So, back to the drawing board. Thought I'd put it here, though, so as not to consign it to the Land of Unheard Music.

A Number Another Summer

Instrumental demo written/recorded as first-takes after reading this post about the recording of The Cure's Disintegration album. Consider it a comment for the Disintegration post. And please excuse the mix, as it was hastily done. In keeping with the Disintegration theme, it begins with 8 seconds of silence.

Enceladus

Originally planned as a mix between 70's J.M. Jarre and Steve Reich. Turns out to be more like Giorgio Moroder teaming with Tangerine Dream, on a bad day. [more inside]

Japonisme (1)

I took an old 45rpm of a Japanese folk song and started dropping the needle. Took those bits, sliced 'em up and moved 'em around a little, then added some synth and electric piano, some udu and guiro. Et voila! Le Japonisme!

Grendel

Sort of strived for emotional content with this one. If the first part is asking questions, the second is not liking the answers.

The sky was filled with rainbows

A little synthetic ditty for FAWM'06.

Freedom Tape

A simple, melancholy electro instrumental that I recorded a couple of years ago. Percussion ideas came from various hip-hop sources; the melody is my own. I use it as background music during a spoken-word segment of my live shows. [more inside]

Oscillendulum 1

This is one of a series of short pieces (about 10 or 12) I recorded using only a JUNO 60 analog synth (found at a Tokyo junk shop for only 10,000 yen!). The Oscillendulums all share a similar structure (gradual addition and/or subtraction of layered repeating parts), with an eye toward the creation of a sort of liquid polyrhythm. I also had in mind the musical approximation of animal sounds such as frog and insect choruses from a pond, which are part of the inspiration for this series.

1982

I created this the first time I really fired-up Garageband, sometime in May of 2005. It's a cliche of itself, provoking nostalgia, and makes me laugh out-loud. Hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think!
