My best Sea Change-era Beck impression.

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]

Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies - "July"

"July" is the promo single from the upcoming Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies EP. "July" is the feel-good song of the month, if not the century. "July" is a tale of love, summertime, and ephemeral youth, told in the timeless language of pop music. [more inside]

Mudai Heisei 23 Rokugatsu Itsuka

I've been acquiring a number of sample libraries in the past year, and this track makes use of some of them. It has Indonesian gamelan, Japanese taiko, Indian tabla and orchestral strings. [more inside]

Broken, soundtrack for the future.

Some more Philip Glass-inspired electronica while waiting for the RPM Challenge to start.

Fred Jones, Pt. 2

It's amazing what you can throw together in about 4 hours with nothing but a Rock Band mic, 8 of yourself, and a pair of Stylophones. [more inside]

Rescuer (cleaner mix)

Finally -- a MeFiMusic Challenge I can do! Or rather have done. I actually posted this song before, but I've since gone back and cleaned up the EQ and gated some of the noise from the vocal. The two chords used are D and E.

Pure

A fairly grim song, I suppose, mostly one chord, almost too long to upload here. With strings. And a guitar solo. [more inside]

Song 2

Written for a cello friend. Apologies for the low volume level and the minute of silence at the end.

Take the Picture

I tend to take a lot of pictures. I found out early on in my photo-taking tenure that the more pictures I took, the more likely that some of them would come out nicely. Of course, I’m always the one behind the camera. As a parent, I also have wondered just how much of the time I spend with my kids they will remember (if any). My father recently asked me if I remembered how we used to watch Star Trek together. I honestly couldn’t remember. He was crushed. It occurred to me that many years down the road when my kids look at our family pictures they won’t see me in any of them because I was the one behind the camera. Something tells me that this detail will be lost on them as they repeat the cycle and tell me they don’t remember me being there. ;) [more inside]

Rescuer

Strings, drums, two chords and lyrics vaguely inspired by the '80s TV show "The Equalizer". Also, big rip-off of Craig Armstrong.

Axe and Why

An experiment in using soft damped x-y controllers to adjust the timbre of instruments.

Overload

An abstract electronic piece; some of the piano riffs later through the song sound like they're being pushed too fast, which led me to the title. [more inside]

Radiohead - "Nude (Strings Remix)"

The result here is spending a few free days on my couch with my violin and computer. I would love all comments/criticism from anybody, as this is something I'd like to continue experimenting with. (I guess if you like it, you can vote by clicking on the plus sign and pass the link onto anybody else). http://www.radioheadremix.com/remix/?id=1196 Thanks! [more inside]

Untold Demons

I unearthed the very first song I wrote in 1986 and flinched at all the clueless chord progressions my 14-year-old self used. But I could sense some potential behind a few of the ideas. So I reworked it extensively and brought out more of the subliminal inspiration that went into: mid-'80s Heart. [more inside]

gone

I think this is one of the catchier songs I've come up with in a while, though I never seem to be a good judge of that. At any rate, it's a short and simple track about intense love gone missing... or something like that. [more inside]

Tasha

Tasha's full name was Natasha Von Baddenof. A rottwieler that I raised from puppyhood til death. I was going to sing on this but it's better without it. Enjoy.

Montage

an overwhelmingly ambient texture, pierced with many elements of various density - scraped percussion, Latin and bluegrass gestures, strings, somber guitar notes and swirling electronics. Very soundtrack, very visual, particuarly for fans of Gustavo Santaolalla.

iLust Your iPod

I stare at you across the lecture hall in Psychology class. Your long, white cord and your smooth rectangular body. If I had to narrow this track down to a particular genre I would have to go with "electro orchestral folk-hop." This beat is a impassioned symphony expressing the desire for iNtimacy in today's society.

The Rookie

The title comes from the Clint Eastwood movie but God only knows what that has to do with the track....

Bagel on the Malecon

A very New York-bred outlook at old-time Cuban music, recorded entirely with .. violas! This was my attempt to create asymmetrical but memorable melodies, clear textures crammed with material, and experiment with multitrack viola as a concept, an ensemble. The sound of the classic Cuban bands had all that - except the violas, that is. This track appears on my newly released CD, the VJOLA: WORLD ON FOUR STRINGS

Convergence 01

Composed, recorded, produced and mastered by me and a group of peers at a Junior conservatoire a few years ago. A few pointers - the vocalist was instructed to "Speak to God" (but not in a religious way), and the title comes from the feeling that the whole track is moving towards something. Violin = Lotto! (Yep I play two instruments)
