What Happens Next?

Challenge: Do what scares you? I'm scared of death and the concept of eternity. While I'm NOT about to DO that, I could write a song distilling my fears about said subject matter, yes? Yes. OK, it's a deal, then.

I say Goodbye (hello to you)

A brief description of the song. Recorded 2015 early 2016 sometime and frozen away. Another song only ever played one time. Second motif arrives at midway. Layers sound better in headphones, better for the low end of the spectrum too.

For my woefully behind schedule song-a-week project, I recorded a slow, introspective version of the seminal Prince favorite. Leave your dancing shoes at the door. [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]

Nineteen Thousand Sunsets

Ambient instrumental piece. It's a rather ambient dialog between the guitar and a bell-like sine synth. Long pauses. Slow paced. Throughout my life, one of my constant joys was always watching the sun go down. I've seen so many variations of this event that I wanted to express a condensation of the variety and bittersweetness of all those sunsets. [more inside]

Millimeters of Mercury — S2

Slightly dubstep-inspired, named for the closest star to the supermassive black hole at the center of the galaxy (S2). The star is a young star and the fastest-moving massive object in the galaxy, and by metaphor, the song expresses the hubris and beauty of youth.

Radiohead (is too smart for me)

I had a band that was a shameless Tenacious D rip-off back in college, and we spent most of our time writing songs that made fun of artists we thought were lame. Recently, I discovered a cassette tape with an original demo that put the song back into my ear. Out of all the songs, I decided it would be fun to try to make more than just an acoustic song. It might be overkill, but sometimes, so is Radiohead.

Ambient Piano Piece

On an old hard drive, I've recently uncovered a directory of sounds I created. I thought I'd share this one. It's an ambient piece.

You Are Somewhere Around Here

Slowed-down krautrocky shoegaze pop, if such a thing exists. Like finding your pants tightening while under gas in a dentist's chair. [more inside]

Channel 19

I grew up when there were only three or four TV channels, no internet. Now people want to be micro-celebrities, and want their privacy to boot. [more inside]

Sweet Little Baby

Everybody I know is popping out kids. So for all the parents, I wrote a lullaby. Please experiment with your children and let me know if this puts them to sleep.

Gas Giant

Some light-stepping chilled out beats, inspired by the Portishead mix linked by isopraxis, and sampling a bar or two of Holst's "Jupiter".

crazy

A cover of the first verse and chorus of the Gnarls Barkley song, primitively recorded live a while back when I had a cold. My wife was really into the song and I recorded this for her as a goof, but it came out kinda good.

Ohming

In what distant deeps or skies Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand dare seize the fire?

A slow and sad song I wrote and recorded after a breakup/separation a few years ago. Features a falsetto chorus and acoustic guitar, including an e-bow undercurrent.

Pipey

Just a little thing I did with Garage Band and my M-Audio Keystation. I think it'd make a good title screen for a video game.
