Don't Call It a Disease

As humans explore beyond the solar system and add themselves to the wider galactic population, they bring with them their cats. Likewise, the humans' cats bring with them their parasites. Over time, toxoplasma gondii alters its effects on humans and other sentient species, imparting a sense of spiritual enlightenment, thus leading to a new galactic religion. [more inside]

Sapphic Melody

This is a poem fragment from Sappho set to music using Ancient Greek music theory as best as I understand it and generated by my Platonic Music Engine which generates music using every musical idea that has ever or will ever exist. [more inside]

Sitting On A Halo

Santa put a new saturation plugin in my stocking. I......may have overdone it a bit on this quick song about appreciating life and what you have - just in time for the New Year. [more inside]

Coventry Carol - strings

This medieval English carol is certainly not cheerily optimistic-sounding, but might not quite qualify as pessimistic. "Somber" is better - a mood rarely evoked for Christmas. [more inside]

Like the 90's

A song about the winter weather or lack thereof, the defining El Niño of my childhood, family troubles, a metaphor about my lack of perspective, and an impression of a musical sheep. [more inside]

Nightmare Tunnel

Loops of slow disorienting guitar noises, and other sound wierdness. Sections fade in and out of one another, building and cresting. I picture it akin to an adult version of riding on Willy Wonka's fucked-up boat ride. [more inside]

This is Wrong

Sample reduced synthetics, atonal feedback, and other fancy marginally (ir)relevant musical gibberish. It's loud, and isn't that really all you wanted? [more inside]

New York March

One more 1865 banjo tune for the city songs challenge trifecta! This is another Frank B. Converse composition. Fretless banjo and tambourine, a bit of reverb for extra stateliness.

Philadelphia Jig

A la Habana

An ode to Havana in a mongrelized "guagancó" rhythm. It's badly sung in Spanish, and awkwardly played using congas, bongos and a batá. I've included my original lyrics in Spanish and an English translation. [more inside]

Boston Jig

Getting in just under the wire for the May/June city song challenge, this is a short little banjo tune from Buckley's New Banjo Method of 1860. Fretless minstrel banjo, parlor guitar, bones and tambourine.

Theme Song Theme

Not a complete theme song, more like the theme of a theme song. It makes mundane tasks like checking the mailbox seem urgent and full of import.

Here's my entry for the MetaMeta challenge. It's a cover of dobie's track hypotech from a while ago, done with many acoustic layers. Thanks to dobie for actually sending me the lyrics too! [more inside]

Kitten (in my robot purse) cover

Coming late to this great mefimusic challenge. So many I still want to cover, but here's my noir version of umbú's excellent Kitten (in my robot purse), a song that packs way more adorable and awesome into less than three minutes than should feasibly fit. Hope I'm doing it justice. [more inside]

My Childhood At the Open Mic

If memory serves, in my pre-teen years, bands At the Open Mic tended to sound a little like this. I wish more of them had covered Cortex's songs. [more inside]

Pick me up too

This is my cover of http://music.metafilter.com/7288/Pick-me-Up for the April/May Music Challenge. I could make a lot of excuses for how bad this. I didn't quite figure it all out and I re-arranged it a bit. The vocal melody is somewhat different because I had a hard time singing the original and I had to improv on lyrics as I just couldn't interpret the originals totally. But overall, this was interesting and fun. Hope you don't cringe too much Sredni Vashtar

you awoke like

Pretty excited about this one. This was a weird kinda experimental duet I wrote a long time ago and I'm finally starting to mess around with it for reals. It features my lovely and talented friend Pat. As per usual, I could always use some advice. Tricky stuff starts around 1:07. [more inside]

Christmas in Tokyo

Three days into December; it has got to be time for some Christmas songs! Four years ago I wrote this song, with lyrics in Swedish, to communicate my Christmas melancholy to my family. Two years later I was still sad, but now in English, and on camera... [more inside]
