Francesco Todeschini Piccolomini

Pope Pius III: His Facebook fan page says it all, but that may be because he served as pope for less time than William Henry Harrison served as POTUS. [more inside]

Giovanni Battista Cybo

Meet the inappropriately-named Pope Innocent VIII. Witch hunter. Innovator in the field of immolation. Simonist. Slave regifter. And don't forget about his army of bastard children placed the Vatican on the brink of financial ruin. [more inside]

Pietro Barbo

Paul II was a poster child (or grand-nephew) of papal nepotism. This fellow made it more difficult to downsize church government because of his tendancy to appoint new cardinals in private. Oh yeah, he also loved bling and some accounts cite his fatal heart attack happening whilst being sodomized by his boy lover. [more inside]

Alfonso de Borja

You probably knew him better as Pope Callixtus III. His legacy, aside from his advanced age, feebleness and incompetence, is marked by a widely-spread (and patently false) rumor that he successfully exorcised Halley's Comet in 1456. [more inside]

Chromatic Satori

For the January challenge, fellow mefite mahershalal and I came up with this little number. Kind of a jazz-influenced instrumental shoegaze number, I guess. [more inside]

Balkan Red Alert Part II

Just sneaking this one under the wire for the Hallowe'en challenge. A thrown-together palate cleanser from the recent power pop -- a piece of Eastern European-flavored surf about the scariest thing I can think of. I actually gave myself the shivers when I was putting together the ending so it's probably worth sticking around for that. [more inside]

The Nuge

Aka 21 Nugent St., AKA this deadly house in Thunder Bay where we have righteous disco-ball dance parties and bluegrass jams, and where I've been crashing the last few weeks. It's been a treat.

Are the vocals loud enough?

Turn your bass down...I'm still a'learnin'. Piano overtones are the new "in thing". Mouse programmed...chords and all...not a keyboard in sight.

foot chase

Easy little piano/drum instrumental track that a friend and I recorded a few years back. I call it "foot chase" because for some reason it makes me imagine being on the run from someone.

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.

Movie Credits instrumental

Kind of an eerie repetitive theme that I think sounds like it could be heard at the end of some kinda spooky, horror, thriller'ish type of movie i started with one little riff i made and copied and tweaked it over 5 or 6 tracks
