Mark Foo's Last Ride

Mark Foo rewrote the rules of big-wave surfing and turned it into a high-stakes, high-profile thrill show. So when the biggest, baddest new surf break -- Mavericks -- started to churn out 40-foot waves in December 1994, it was inevitable that he'd be there. This tune celebrates his last ride. Previous tunes here and here.

Balkan Red Alert, Part I

Balkan-tinged surf-rock ode to Gavril Princip from Cesare Gorgeous & The Strange Attractors. That's me (Cesare) on, um, everything. Previously in the same ilk: A Theory of Everything. More to come.

The Earthquake was a Disaster

Picture yourself experiencing an earthquake in slow motion. The eerie calm beforehand leading up to the main event itself. Relax and let yourself live through this instrumental story all the way to the finale. Sprinkled with memories of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

Circus Maximus

Another song from my college band, this one part of an aborted concept album concerning the Planet of the Robots, the Software of Sentience, and other sorts of robot-related stuff. Recorded in the basement of one of Cooper Union's buildings with a small "in studio" audience shouting "hooray!" at appropriate times.

Hillbilly Disco

This is just an improv jam from a rehearsal with my old band. It's a little bit funky, a little jazzy. Overall it's just a really fun groove IMO. The recording quality is not the greatest but it's not too bad. It features me on drums, my buddy Dan on guitar and another guy named Jonathan on keys. Enjoy.

Worse Than Pop - We Can Clone Knight Rider Fans, We Have the Techno

I am a lonely man, with only Audacity for company.
This is my first attempt at a multitrack recording. I don't have a real microphone, so it's really lo-fi. I also apparently have no clue how to master, so the levels will scare you. I welcome suggestions, death threats, etc.

Sumomo Mo Momo

Improvised sludge-rock by three people who'd never played together before. Stereo-action guitar pyrotechnics by nylon.

When percussionists attack!

This is what happens when three percussionists get bored of the rest of the band taking forever to set up and tweak... They attack!

5/4 by Quemada

We were young, it was 1989 and the 9 of us crowded into the studio in Leeds. Quemada were in the house... The originator of the band, the base player, wanted to play "bastard hard funk" and we came up with this one which sounds a little like a dance tune but is in 5/4 time and used to confuse the hell out of everyone... enjoy!

Jane's theme

Superheroic theme song I wrote for my girlfriend. (warning: cheaply synthesized, as I do not know how to play any horns or woodwinds)

The Cool Road to Hell

This was my band in college, a surf-instrumental-spy-rock four-piece: bass, drums, guitar, and violin. I'm playing bass in this song.

Convergence 01

Composed, recorded, produced and mastered by me and a group of peers at a Junior conservatoire a few years ago. A few pointers - the vocalist was instructed to "Speak to God" (but not in a religious way), and the title comes from the feeling that the whole track is moving towards something. Violin = Lotto! (Yep I play two instruments)

A Theory of Everything

Twangsome surf-rock from The Strange Attractors, recorded when I should have been writing screenplays. That's me kicking the reverb tank at the beginning.

Trees + Herbs Just Got Easier

cloeburner and I used to be in an improv noise rock band called cloeburner. When I listen to this song, I think of a majestic bald eagle, sinking slowly into a pool of lava and contemplating its own mortality. I hope you will, too.
