This gloomy synth jam was made on an airplane and finished late at night in my parents' home during an emotionally complicated visit. [more inside]
I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental. [more inside]
Games with arpeggiators. Would probably make a good background bit for a podcast about mysterious goings on in an abandoned synthesizer factory.
A very brief (50s) sketch I worked up on the train the other day. Crunchy synth bass drone in conversation with a ringing guitar (also synthesized).
Kinda of a bleepy-bloopy little instrumental jam. I'm really kind of fond of this one. [more inside]
A cover of Magnetic Fields' "You're My Only Home," recorded entirely on a Teenage Engineering OP-1. [more inside]
This is a cover of Bishop Allen's "Butterfly Nets." While the song is a favorite of teenage girls on with ukeleles on Youtube, I am instead a 34-year-old baritone with Garageband and an OP-1.
