Come As You Are

Another Nirvana cover I recorded a while back and just remembered about today. MIDI keyboard + vocals. It was fun to see if I could cover this song without the signature riff.

two lovers

Gentle, warm, almost mantra-like song featuring guitars, piano, bass, lap steel, drums, bass, melodica, and vocals -- kinda sorta about seeing love as an art project. [more inside]

Short Ride in a Fast Chihuahua

A collage for Disklavier and Toy Chihuahua. My toy dog always barks 26 times in a row. I asked composers to send microscores for piano, each 26 beats long, to be synchronized to the chihuahua's voice. Fifteen composers contributed about sixty scores. [more inside]

Higher

This is the probably most commercial thing I've ever written -- still not sure how I feel about it -- but it was completely accidental. I just had this little 3-3-2 piano riff going and started putting a bassline under it, and the whole thing kind of fell out. I resisted it for months because it seemed so obvious but eventually gave in. Drums are 1-take 3-mics from my drummer but I think they work pretty well. The interesting thing is that the 1-bar piano riff continues through as an ostinato through the whole thing, never changing. I guess it's Coldplay's version of Marvin Gaye's SEXUAL HEALING, or something. A bit of U2 in there too somewhere in the scritch scratch guitar that comes in in the second verse. [more inside]

it's the now

Listening to some old songs of mine, I came upon this one from 2004. It's a rather sweet, romantic little thing written about a depressing period in my relationship at the time. [more inside]

Call Me Luna!

This has techno stuff arguing back and forth with pianos, a theme that's conflicted about what meter it's in, a cadence that keeps trying to change the key down a whole step, and ponies. Plenty of ponies. But I think this is my last Luna project for a while now!

Hymn to the Preciousness of Human Frailty #3

A third time, recorded straight to SoundCloud on my iPhone. I keep playing this song over and over, but this is the best version yet anyway. My piano is very out of tune, though. Need to fix that.
