Signal Tower

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]

The Wandering Life Is A Difficult One But It Is Not Without Its Pleas...

Had a homie on the last goat farm who asked me to write her a song about bouncing around the country taking care of goats and green things, asked me to call it "Hard Out Here for a Nomad" but that is not the name of this song, the name of this song is "The Wandering Life Is A Difficult One, But It Is Not Without Its Pleasures; For Example, Today I Saw A Cardinal."

Ramsey Table Owl Frog

Soo, my friend recently attended a password training at work, led by a coworker and friend of his. As he listened to the examples, he got this idea to mash up his coworker's announcer voice with the old banjo tune King Kong Kitchie Kitchie (a version of froggy went a courtin') to make a 1 minute dance mix ditty.

eemz haleemz

so I've been using this songwriting trick where I program a simple loop using the sequencer on my synths and sort of riff off of it to come up with the other instrumental parts. Then, when I have the idea properly fleshed out, I remove the synths. A songwriting scaffold, of sorts (though in many cases I have kept the original loop in there!!!) Anyways, for this track I included the synth loop at the very beginning so you can hear what I'm riffing off of for the rest of the track. Hope you like it!!!! -CA


Good Moon - Bad Habit

The 2nd track on my latest album (also posted over at Projects.) A pandemic project, of all original music by myself & my partner, Molly Doris-Pierce. This one is a bit of a favorite of mine. Vocals, guitar, organ, bass guitar, drums.

Special Teams

Tried a bunch of new stuff this time round. It's a dance trance but I played almost everything live, including the drums which were "performed" on the keyboard, because I'm not a drummer. The only things that were automated were the drum fills, crash cymbals, and the marimba/piano 2 patterns.
