Thoughts in B-flat

In the past couple of weeks, I found myself going back to a piece that I'd started working on a few years ago -- probably because it's in a slower triple meter that's somewhat calming for me. This is a condensed one-minute version, featuring piano and guitar, for the 60 Seconds and Under #2 MeFi Music Challenge. [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).

They Might Be Giants

Here is my take on TMBG for the Metafilter Flood Album! More novelty than novelty, that's my motto (apparently). This is not at all what I had in mind for this somehow. [more inside]

Backwards

As the unimaginative title suggests, this is my entry for the April MeFi Music challenge. It's an ambient type of thing, largely made from reversed guitar recordings. [more inside]

Jun19

I thought I'd share this with the mefi music makers and listeners. It's a sparkly-ish, delay-ish, electronic-piano-ish, one-take-ish, THC-ish improv/rhapsody. [more inside]

A long one-take improvisitation played live with Ableton echo and a vocal beat loop I recorded that I knob-twiddled while I played.

My Money's Worth In Blood

So, I've been experimenting with writing and recording pop music - currently in my bedroom with garageband. I'm an amateur. I may have gotten a little effect happy on this one. But hey, it's a start. [more inside]

You Can't Ignore My Techno

Shortish instrumental, born out of me dicking around in Garage Band and trying to break out of my indie-rock rut.

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.

The Pianimal: Episode 1 - Tom Waits Covers

Recorded live in my living room on Monday night, the debut episode of this four-song, one-take podcast is my way of making sure I DO something with the piano in the corner. Each song fits a certain theme (this episode, it's Tom Waits covers), and there are no re-takes or edits allowed. It's the Pianimal -- and it's ALIVE! [more inside]

Another acoustic, instrumental tune. This is the first track I've made in GarageBand (my Ubuntu machine died hard last week).

Hopin' for the...

A beat I made in Garageband featuring trombone. All the music parts are loops of me, on keyboard, trombone, and bass. The scratching is Mic Santi, my roommate.

butterfly gone berserk

I have a new song ! Inspired by the numerous posts I've had the pleasure to listen here, I've added a tech touch to my music. My butterfly has decided to rebel against nature and has gained a synthetic voice... but fortunately, he soon gets rid of it and returns to real life.

In The Mind

This was one of the first songs that I ever recorded. It has changed some what over the years and still waiting for the work that it needs. It will also be the title track to my CD. It has a dark and erie sound that has said to be influenced by my recreational addiction that I had at the time. I do hope that you will enjoy this contribution to a look that is "IN THE MIND"

VCR (Perpetual Bridge)

Another song on the new keyboard. Basically, the loop is four bridge ('fill') rhythms from the keyboard's analog drum kit, so I figure it's a good enough musical joke to submit it for 'bridge'. Anyway. it's kinda made up as I go (as before, live looping with my baby, and it's louder than my last one and attempts to be less sleepy. Critique welcomed, as always.

I Wouln't Trust Him With That

So, I picked up new keyboard for free. Here's an impromptu song I just did on it.

chinese no groove

Improvised trio. Guitar, keyboards, doorbell. When you've got a pebble in your shoe, you can't look at the stars.

What Have You Done?

While my friend Beth is in town, we're recording a bit (as The Shrimp Boat Pirates. We just finished this one last night. Hohner-Gruhn guitar, Fender Stratocaster, Casio keyboard, kitchen utensils, Audio-Technica microphone, and GarageBand.

Quantum Mechanics

In the early 1990s I had a spare bedroom full of MIDI equipment (including a 16-channel mixer and various effect units) and I liked to noodle around with it. This is the only complete piece I ever produced. It's an instrumental strongly influenced by the likes of Tangerine Dream, the Alan Parsons Project, and Synergy.

In The Dark

The last song on my first solo record. Very sad melody and lyrics, keyboard and guitar. Get the rest of the record at the MySpace.
