They Though He Was Part of the Ship

This song highlights one of the possible dangers of crashing one's ship on a planet inhabited by a totally alien species. I recorded this a few years ago, deciding only recently to mix it down. It features a reklus-modified Korg DDD-1.

Purple Majesty/After-Party

The night he died, Prince came to me in a dream. I played electric piano and he played acoustic piano. He had all the best licks, naturally. :-) So I had to do this, even though it's like the Tenacious D song, Tribute. This is not the song I heard in my head, which was a jam in Am. No, this is just a tribute to that song. And it comes with it's own after-party! [more inside]

Take Me to Church - live performance

This is a recording of a performance I did last Friday of Hozier's "Take Me to Church" at my medical school's Evening of the Arts. I'm super proud of how it turned out. (Video here.) The first minute or so is the intro from the host of the show, then the song begins.
