Not sure how to describe this one, but I sampled a lot of disparate stuff and used some found sound I have.
A minimal dub jam. I put together the rhythm and melody in Nanostudio on my iPad while cruising the South Pacific over Christmas. Added the bass and lead guitar when I got home in Garageband. It makes me happy, mostly. [more inside]
I bought a cheap casiotone keyboard. I have to figure out how to learn to play it, but in the meantime... drone!
a fair shot at breaking a months-long gap between self-recordings
Late night twiddling. [more inside]
Four chords. [more inside]
Bowed Whamola. Multiple layers of the same note. Words fail to do it justice. [more inside]
Smoothy, dreamy chillout vibes with gently gliding arpeggios swirling over luscious synth chords. Think Futurecop meets Mike Oldfield.
Acoustic cover of Keane's Spiraling. [more inside]
A nearly-finished track. Looking for suggestions. I feel like I should add a field recording of some kind, but I'm not sure what kind. I'm feeling a little bit of speech. [more inside]
An ambient song with some loops and drums and stuff. The first thing I've written in months.
a minimal and sombre thing. sounds made by software and double bass. [more inside]
A track I'm working on for a concept EP. Worked on it instead of going to compsci lecture today. Crazy resonators. Way more rhythmic than anything I've done in a while. [more inside]
I decided to try sampling something from porn. You probably wouldn't notice if I hadn't told you. [more inside]
Studying for exams suck. Classical guitar FPPs rock. I decided to focus this energy into something productive. [more inside]
An electronic dance song I made the other day, but now with more of the flavor of today. [more inside]
I actually sing in this song, with lyrics and stuff. It's a first. Ok, it only is like 2 lines. [more inside]
I've been working slowly on this for a while. If Love Lockdown became a depressing minimal track... [more inside]
A short sample turned into a 4 minute electronic dance track. [more inside]
There's a way in at the back. It sounds better inside.
polyrhythmic minimal techno, with restrained use of vocoders. [more inside]
A short minimal-housey thing made exclusively with sound presets. [more inside]
A short minimal-glitch etude of sorts made from guitar-fret noise [more inside]
Ambient music made with a guitar. More.
A cover of a song I absolutely love. [more inside]
For the minimal crowd: some future jazz. Influenced by Ricardo Villalobos, Krause Duo, etc. [more inside]
two friends on different sides of a coin.
Can techno music be sad and banging at the same time? I've been listening to a lot of Jurgen Paape and wanted to try my hand at the sad vocal sample techno song.
I made this in 2003 or 2004, when minimal house music was getting big. It's not minimal house music, per se, since the beat is too twerky. However, it does steal from the genre.
Here's one of my earlier experiments in drone music. It's electric guitar, played live through delay, fuzz and volume pedals.
