I Met John Fahey in a Safeway

#9 in my Unu Kanto Po Semajno series (42 to go!) was going to have lyrics about meeting John Fahey at an autograph signing meet & greet-type event at a Safeway supermarket, where he was signing copies of his new cereal called Homegas. A conversation ensues, and then the chorus was the advertising jingle for Homegas cereal. It never got that far though, 'cause I decided I liked the music better this way and in my mind's ear, rather than to try and jam that much story into such a short timeframe. Also, time to move on!

deeply listening

Spent the last year learning to program and had no time for music. Finally got a job and a new-ish life so I thought it's time to get back to some things I enjoy. This one is different from my normal thing though I suppose I'v'e always had an attraction to analog merging with electronic. Maybe thanks to new order/joy division??? Though this doesn't sound anything like those.

Sapphic Melody

This is a poem fragment from Sappho set to music using Ancient Greek music theory as best as I understand it and generated by my Platonic Music Engine which generates music using every musical idea that has ever or will ever exist. [more inside]

Day Trip To Ikea

Here's a highly textured synthpop song written in 1999 using Juno-60, OB-1, Arp Axxe and an Arp Omni II. All the synths are driving each other via CV.
