Vocal guide for Passion Fall

been trying to record some vocals lately which of course meant trying to figure out what the melody and lyrics would even be so I did an improv vocal session and then repeated the best of it 3 or 4 times and did a rough mix. [more inside]

Illuminated Corridor

A bit of dungeon synth.


October 9

The Foreman

Another ambient office jam - some granular textures and filter pinging over a slow chord progression. Needed something relaxing, then got too relaxed and needed a bassline. [more inside]


October 8

needs a name?

First song I've completed after falling out of making electronic music over 10 years ago. Going for spooky chillout vibes. Any kind of feedback is appreciated.

The Game, a Sapphic Darkwave Love Song for Hard Femmes

If you're a nonmogamous sapphic lover this song is for you to bump to. Think Dancefloor love and pheromones that have bodies and hot and moving [more inside]

Sinking In

I was really very tired when I wrote and sang this. This is one of my more danceable numbers, although the subject matter is rather dour. I was trying not to wallow. [more inside]

The C.T.O.A.: Chill talkers of America

I'd found out about lofi and chillhop music through some youtube streams during the lockdown, and that it was excellent "wallpaper music" for working-at-home doing drab admin. After a few months, I decided I understood some of the tropes, and tried my hand at making some. I had no idea this had been a mainstream genre for a decade already. As usual, a kinda half-baked golem emerges. [more inside]

Monsoonn mourning

I got a new microphone to replace my old defunct one. It's nothing special but I had to test it out right away. What I learned is I'm going to want a pop-filter probably. [more inside]


Blackbird (cover) - Voice Memo Recording 24 SEP 2021

Well it's been a minute since I've posted anything here. This is a "one take" cover of the Beatles song "Blackbird". Sung while playing on my old upright church piano in my living during a lunch break. [more inside]


Leave Her, Johnny

Another old sea song, harmonising with myself. [more inside]

humdrum

I wrote and recorded this one today. It's not what I expected it to be but it's track number 12 and so I'll stop here and try to write some lyrics and record some vocals next week and hopefully make an album.


September 21

Spring and Sobriety

This is probably the third iteration of this song. No vocals yet. I'm not sure I like it, but I'm trying to hone it nonetheless.


September 20

Nova Sunshine

I'm working on this album concept where the earth's orbit has changed bringing cataclysmic changes to the the environment and season, ultimately bring about the extinction of mankind. This is sort of a nod to climate change but with a more dramatic, science-fiction narrative to emphasize and accelerate the outcome... [more inside]

satellite debris

I'm not sure what kind of album I'm trying to make. My emotions seem to be at conflict. [more inside]

In honor of the upcoming first day of school, here is a song about the pressures of the morning. [more inside]

Our Final Season

Another song I recorded lately. Instrumental for now but I think I can add some gothic vibe vocals to this one.


September 4

Autumn Endings

It's been a couple of years since I tried writing music but I recently got a setup I could produce music on again. Here is one my first attempts on that. I threw some vocaloid vocals on it way far in the back to give it a vibe and to express a melody going on in my head.

In the Castle

My kids complained they couldn't dance to any of my music so I threw and impromptu office dance party with them. [more inside]

I did this as a response to a composition prompt to imagine and alien landscape and then imagine it fading from reality.

Brazilian Brooks

Another drum-less synth loop featuring the Roland Sound Canvas SC-88 deploying its absolutely classic harp sample once again! All of the sounds on both this and my last post were made using hardware rather than software which is kind of a first for me in terms of synth tunes! Really enjoying it!

Semi-ambient modern synth pad instrumental with minimalist electronic bass, reversed electric guitar, and some pretty and deliberate vinyl crackle-ish soft static noise and a gentle mix of treated samples. Maybe sort of cinematic? [more inside]
