puzzle box

Games with arpeggiators. Would probably make a good background bit for a podcast about mysterious goings on in an abandoned synthesizer factory.

untitled

The vastness of making electronic music is really overwhelming to me, so I'm trying to just get over that and create some things.

Appear Amid

Song from 2010. I think this was the peak of my abilities in trying to make my whistling sound like some sort of saw/e-bow/loon combo. Identical guitar part to the end of my song Apfel Augen. Whistling with stairwell reverb, guitar, and a couple pulsing effects I added in a just-now-at-3am-we'll-see-what-it-sounds-like-in-the-morning fever.

Taxi in Cairo

A return to lo-fi, less-than-a-minute songs as my laptop mic coughs up its last breaths. New songs played with Ouds and recorded on nicer microphones coming soon! [more inside]

I'm I Am

Rap song. It's pretty short, so just listen to it. Mind your subwoofers.

The Clapping Song

For some reason, I love songs with any kind of organic sounds in them (e.g. clapping, snapping, whistling, etc.). So I made this song in about 20 mins to demonstrate my love for claps. [more inside]

The Tunneling Horror

A small New England town finds itself unable to eliminate the tentacled terror that lurks deep beneath its basements and sewers.

The Great Space Darkness vs Love

A short but epic song that dares to ask: Is our only hope in this war against the great space darkness the love of an ageless, gender neutral couple? Will their love be enough? [more inside]

Distressed

For the past several months, I've been working on a number of songs, but haven't completed anything. Well, I was in a lousy mood yesterday and decided to barrel through creating a short song about what I was going on in my brain. [more inside]

face to face to face

Two days ago I shot some video: a reflection of a man riding a Tokyo train, watching another moving train (a shinkansen) pass by on a parallel track. I made this music today, to serve as accompaniment for the 58-second film. I uploaded the video earlier this evening to YouTube here.

The Madness Encroaches

So, for this year's RPM Challenge I have decided to go all out and write a rock opera. This is one of the few songs I have worked on so far, and the first one that has been completed. Granted, this should be somewhere in the middle or the rock opera, but, still, it's the first one finished, so I'm posting it anyway. [more inside]

Allergies

So, I was planning on recording my ukulele rendition of Holy Diver (yes, that one), but my allergies were acting up so I felt like crap. So, that's what this song is about. And it's NSFW. [more inside]

Then She Begins ...

Tonight, I created a really, really, really good remake of an old song of mine. I don't even know if I have a copy of the original anymore, but ... whoa ... this thing ended up being kind of epic. Features horns and toy pianos, a reed organ, both regular and electric ukulele, some drums. I even tried my hand at playing the bass. Short, simple lyrics within (of which I am also rather proud)!

This is a short song I've made for my girlfriend in the past half hour or so. It is a true story.

Grendel

Sort of strived for emotional content with this one. If the first part is asking questions, the second is not liking the answers.

Reno Dakota

A Magnetic Fields cover I recorded recently. I've been working on my singing for a while, and I was mostly wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to go from here in improving it? Any other feedback is also welcome, of course.

The Imlovence (of My Heart)

I had promised Sarah I would write her a song. Granted, that was while we were dating. We're not anymore. But I did promise, and she is a superly awesome person, wholly deserving of a song. The chorus comes from a facecloth we found in a dollar store, and it's words, three of which being nonexistent, can be found within the bowels of this music post.

Shipwrecked!

I wanted to make a song with a few of the instruments I rarely use, like the reed organ and toy piano. I thought about coming up with lyrics, but my hangover makes my brain feel ... not working so good. So I threw in some kazoo instead. Enjoy!

Burning need. Write a song.

This isn't a particularly good song, so I recommend you don't listen if you like music. Which you do. Pay no attention to all my shitty lyrics peppering your music page, now, if you please.

I Want to Drive

This is a short, NSFW song about an aggravating place. It was thrown together in a two-hour burst of creative intoxication this afternoon, though most of the lyrics have been bumbling around in my head for the past few weeks.
