Fun with drones and LFOs. Could probably pass as an Enigma tribute, thus the name.

Thoughts in B-flat

In the past couple of weeks, I found myself going back to a piece that I'd started working on a few years ago -- probably because it's in a slower triple meter that's somewhat calming for me. This is a condensed one-minute version, featuring piano and guitar, for the 60 Seconds and Under #2 MeFi Music Challenge. [more inside]

Everything Is Fucked (Keep On Going)

Hip with the kids

Delirious, teeth-gritted ballad about weapons of mass destruction and grass roots violence. Also, a breathless love song from one monster to another. Also, a way to distract myself while this horrifying evening plays out. Rough mix. Suggestions welcome. Lyrics past break. [more inside]

The Challenge Is This

I needed this challenge to get away from the song I've been slowwwwly working on otherwise. I recorded some of it last year, but heavily edited and added onto it last night, and then trimmed it down to a slim fifty-seven seconds. Song 14 in my Unu Kanto Po Semajno series.

Deserts 2 - 11_4_16, 8.32 PM

Acoustic guitar improv + desert sounds from Freesound. Much longer and more free form than my normal way of doing things.
