Somehow the idea of doing an alternate podcast theme riffing on Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger got into my head a while a go, and here it is. [more inside]
This is an endlessly rising Radiohead cover vignette; a section from Paranoid Android rises a whole step and repeats itself, and does so again, six times total, before returning to where it started, as a kind of large-scale take on the Shepard tone. [more inside]
A synthed out, vocoded take on Beck's extremely non-synthy song off of Sea Change, as an excuse to fiddle around with Reason 8. [more inside]
Some up-tempo electronica; designed the lead and bass synths from scratch.
Different patterns repeating in 5's.
A temporary mix of a weird minimalist robotic track I was working on in 2009. [more inside]
More music for deep space, take your protein pill and put your helmet on. [more inside]
Just a little rhythmic experiment, not actually gamelan but reminiscent.
Sloppy simplistic cheerful beat from way back, with some recycled sounds (2:06).
Can cover, E7 and A7. Response to two challenges. [more inside]
More noodling in Reason.
The first hopeful thing out after a particularly rough breakup. [more inside]
It's a cover, but not exactly. I was too lazy to figure out the whole song, so I just took the basic hook and had some fun with it. First time working in Reason.
A sugar rush ditty.
A simple track for a simple day.
A hip-hoppy electronica track intended to give you that Chronotriggery feeling. (It only works if you turn it up.) [more inside]
Earnest synth music to soothe your soul. [more inside]
This is an experiment to see if I can create a drum machine beat that swings. [more inside]
Ambient minimalist fake-analog Tha-ish wallpaper, 107 BPM's. [more inside]
Reason, a Strat, a Vibrolux, and a Tubescreamer - what more do you need? [more inside]
Two fragile unrelated mini-melodies collide in a random reichian-tape-delay fight, battle it out in marred reverb, compression and unending echo chambers, get twisted and stretched to break a few bones in the last round and finally lay to rest on the ground forever after expiring. Recorded with les moyens du bord, I suggest you initally turn down the volume by 20%.
A song about being left behind. Sometimes, it's deserved, but it can still suck. (The guitars aren't real. Or the bass. Or the drums ...)
This is an old-ish one from when I was first learning Cubase and Reason. Ambient-ish electronic type stuff!
SAW II-ish experiment.
A little bit of "Sympathy for the Devil", guitars inspired by Jonny Greenwood and The Edge, a China cymbal, Reason, some backwards editing, some speeded-up and smashed together vox, some slowed down vox - let's just see where all this gets me. Site, cd, myspace.
Absolutely ridiculous synth-and-spoken-word composition I recorded to cut my teeth on Reason.
Working draft of an ode to those green-aproned mistresses of the coffee shop.
Creepy, moody synthballad about geopolitical nuclear politics, circa March 2006.
