Real-instrument version of previous post
A collaboration between myself and my old friend Walt Fleming (either formerly or currently the keyboardist of Calgary Pirate-Metal band Verbal Deception
). Original MIDI composed by me & sent to Walt, who assigned synth sounds and somehow found the perfect formula of riffs, beeps & boops to layer on top. An artifact from our high-school days when we had a side project together called the Math Rangers. Walt was one of those strange, crazy, self-taught musical geniuses whose work inexplicably ends up dwelling in obscurity. I thought that this track, at the very least, should be heard.
William is 4 years old and a big fan of synthy dance-pop. His parents are so cool that they commissioned a song for his birthday today! Happy birthday William! Let's count to 4! [more inside]

I think this is the first song I've posted with a guitar solo not done by Dagosto.
Circa 06: sped up samples, off-kilter rhythms, synth bass, all washed in reverb

Victoria, BC's inner harbour
is the perfect place to go after-hours on a clear night, put on headphones, and dance your face off by the water. Here's a song in honor of silly summer times. [more inside]
Does just what it says on the box, and then some.
Featuring everyone's favorite, BooBass!
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]
I don't usually use GarageBand but here is a quick experiment using this program to create silly loops. Harmonized arpeggiators.
Admiral Arpeggio commands the U.S.S. Totes McGotes, a synth-powered vessel whose arpeggiated journeys through the sawtooth seas of the digital wonderland are well-documented
Aka 21 Nugent St., AKA this deadly house in Thunder Bay where we have righteous disco-ball dance parties and bluegrass jams, and where I've been crashing the last few weeks. It's been a treat.
Strap in, kids.
Inspired by the music of Plok
, one of the baddest games ever made. [more inside]
I was alone. It was late at night. March was approaching its end and I had to sing a song about the multiplication table. I had no lyrics. I recorded some guitars and then pressed record on the vocals to see what would happen. [more inside]

Harmless bongos. Hongos.
I recently found a bunch of old cds.. this is one I had put together around 2000 (I would have been around 16). Track 1.

An OK local radio station is having a contest for "Jingles" about specific characters on their show. "Chris Boyer" races cars, wears Hawaiian print shirts and is Homophobic. This is my submission.
Here's a little thing I whipped up in a couple of hours one night earlier this week. Given the amount of time I spent on it, I think it turned out pretty well, despite my voice. The chorus was stolen from another song I was (am?) writing which is based loosely on an episode of Doctor Who. The rest of the lyrics were written in about 15 minutes. I never got around to the bass, and I lost the final drum song program I put in when I stupidly yanked the SD card out too quick, but I doubt I'll ever get to putting these in, so here it is.
One of my first attempts with GarageBand. "Outta My Way" is the title song of what I envisioned would be an "album" chronicling my decision to move from Washington, DC to rural Vermont. This particular song was intended to be about my work day.
A quick, amateur GarageBand recording I made a couple years ago to amuse some friends. Punk-rock Handel with power chords and electric guitars! (Upload inspired by this
Fun little remix I made with DoggieBox for OS X, based on files from this
