Background music for watching footage of the Balloon Boy balloon sailing along.
This is... baroque electronic dance rock? Well, perhaps. I think it will keep you entertained for 5 minutes, at any rate. There are a lot of things that go whoosh, a thing that goes ping, and rather a lot of things doing things near the end. [more inside]
My foray into composing music electronically. [more inside]
Halloween music for choreographed skeletons, skeletons on bikes in the B part.
This is a quiet, meditative, minimalist instrumental piano piece, with occasional visits by vibes, fretless bass and lap steel guitar. You might want to play it somewhat loudly to hear some of the softer notes. Do you think it's finished, or should I add something? [more inside]
Everyone's afraid of falling inside. Especially so when alone. Instrumental, post-apocalyptic, cthulhutronica. [more inside]
From the opening titles of an imaginary made-for-TV movie in which Peter Falk and Suzanne Pleshette learn to love again.
done a long time ago with a cheap drum machine and keyboard. I still like it.

The theme to a spy movie that was never made.
Full title: "Everything Was Going Fine Until Someone Dared Springtime to Happen All at Once." From the album In Lieu of Talent. Maybe a nice way to kick off a Friday. [more inside]
An instrumental track that went under the working title "pseudo-eastern." Most prominently features guitars, lap steel, fretless bass and programmed sitar sounds. The subtle percussion is a spinner ring kind of like this one, run through a healthy dose of reverb. [more inside]
The premier performance of my beloved Pearl Bass Flute. AskmeaboutLOOM is up to his usual tricks on delay.

This is a little instrumental number I made up. I'm trying to convince my bandmates to perform it. The guitar tone and the melodic simplicity may qualify it as Surf Music. [more inside]
My vague memory of an aphex twin melody on this here banjo that I don't really know how to play. Took me a while to figure out which tune(s) I was thinking of. [more inside]
Another instrumental in a tuning I can't even remember.
Just having fun really. [more inside]
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]
One patch, one take.
A slow, two line piece on classical guitar, not really in a medieval style but I wasn't sure what else to call it! Hope everyone who takes the time to listen to it enjoys it. [more inside]

Another laid back instrumental guitar piece. I recorded a lead line for it, actually I probably recorded about 10, but then decided it was nice enough by itself. Hope you all agree and enjoy it!
A laid back, relaxed instrumental nylon string guitar piece, just for something new for me :) Hope its enjoyed by all.
I lived for a time in a shed with one of those corrugated fiberglass roofs. It rained. Then it stopped. Then started again. Etc. [more inside]

A cover of some music not written by Leonard Cohen [more inside]
An upbeat, fast instrumental guitar piece, inspired by some of the music I've been listening to recently. Hope its enjoyed by all!
Instrumental guitar piece in 7/8 time signature - took a lot of concentration and I think it shows, not the most expressive piece but its melodic and flows better than I expected. Hope its enjoyed by all!
Whats that you say? You liked Togther but wonder what it would sound like played on an electric guitar? With chorus and reverb? What a happy coincidence! Wrap your ears around this!
You liked Together - now hear the cover, jazzed up. Short lively instrumental cover of my own work. Vanity at its best.
Metal up your ass! [more inside]
Revisiting a form we haven't attempted in a few months: ambient.
I think I actually covered both challenges with this. It's chase music made out of one of the earliest string quartets I'd ever taken a crack at. [more inside]
Acoustic guitar instrumental cover of a very popular song, I won't mention the artist, perhaps a commenter can spill the beans :) Recorded in two parts.
