Last song of my dungeon synth journey. [more inside]
Toasts with ghosts. [more inside]
Some crazy times at a great airport!
Getting this up here before the month ends: the latest from our killed-by-death styled punk band Franky and the Slight Incline. It's over quick. [more inside]
It's track 5/5 on the Hellish EP, and the highest tempo by a good measure, at a brisk 175bpm with it's own kind of groove.
just... three. You probably get its simplicity, but it sure does sound like the spiraling path to hell. Probably also appropriate as the next recurring pattern in which you get stuck in my "sleep paralysis" series.
In the event of encountering wild foxes be encountered in the mountains (see yt vid), my repertoire now includes a tune for them.
Where did you think those cultists were going anyway? [more inside]
the fourth track in my dungeon synth saga, huzzah [more inside]
this is the other half of the album - unlike 465, this track actually ends [more inside]
Entirely electronic. [more inside]
a very long instrumental that has a lot of overdubs
having a play on the various instruments
A dance track that goes pretty hard! Your enjoyment might be enhanced by a very basic but very cute animation loop. This is Track 4/5 on the EP. [more inside]
from a book of Uyghur melodies
High-energy synths and percussion with intertwining, anthemic melodies. (My love of Rush probably shows but it's a pretty straightforward tune.)
This was a fun one to make. Basically one improvised take on a MIDI keyboard which is hooked up to 3 synths and drum machine, with a pad from a 4rd synth going on in the background. Piano and noise-wave crashes were added afterwards. Using the JX-8P as a bass synth for the first time and gotta say....not too shabby!!!!!! [more inside]
Electronics with some guitars that really need to be re-recorded but this had already taken too much time. [more inside]
Just mucking about with Audacity, playing with sliders and buttons and numbers. This is a 3-minute slow-motion loop of the Gap Band, Dif Juz, and PJ Harvey, all noodled up and sludged out and ready for your next terrifying bout of sleep paralysis.
Some chiptune dnb* played on an sms** and an snes***, both midi controlled. [more inside]
Analog synth rap beat!!
Slowly mutating chords and voice [more inside]
All-analog synthpop song with live bass/drums/vox [more inside]
"but they didn't do their repetoire for long" - that's the last song for now - thanks for listening
A pretty simple dance tune. I borrowed (well, adapted) a melody, I admit - but it was a 4/4 melody crying out to be in 3/4, and I wanted to set it right. This is track 2/5 on the Hellish EP.
Got an Arturia Keystep which means I can now program sequences on the JX-8P and baby it is a game changer!!!!!! Marimba sounds are from the Roland SC-88 which is MIDI'd up to the JX-8P as well.
2 analogs synth looping together. Experimenting with CV connectivity to create syncopation.
last year was strange and disturbing and this year's no better
stuck ranting in a post-modern fairy tale
a hymn of burned out apathy
A granular synth piece fed by a crunchy field recording. [more inside]
the golden hole is in the median of hall rd, between utica and sterling heights, which is a horrendously busy section of northern detroit suburbia - locals are more specific about what kind of hole it is but i will refrain from crudeness - i would really hate to deliver stuff around there, which i think this song is about
either than or we're totally incompetent and nobody wants to believe that
Spanish guitar plus electronics
history is so interesting unless you're living it
Found sound from Weegee with gentle synth accompaniment [more inside]
i wrote this when i was 16 or 17 - funny how things haven't changed - it's the 1st of 8 songs - the album's name is crickets tell the temperature
(for an Imaginary, Low-Budget Cyberpunk Movie)
Upbeat melodic Euro-trance style tune with big hooks - should get you to put your hands up and/or your foot down. Check out the video here. [more inside]
