For heroes pondering during their downtime. [more inside]
A little gtr, a little marimba, a little synth.
I love listening to shortwave radio on the web. I love mixing sounds together and processing them until they ooze. For whatever reason, this track relaxes me, like the Shipping News. Your mileage may vary.
Literally, a seven-minute transition between two chords. [more inside]
Orca jam with an OP-Z. [more inside]
After reading way too much about cybernetic theory I put together a feedback patch to provide some period-appropriate music to my Serge system. [more inside]
Happy Halloween! Here's me doing that song from the film "Carrie" where she gets to dance at the Prom. Maybe it's not a trick and Tommy really likes her? It seems as though things are finally looking up for Carrie. Oops, nope. CARRIE WHITE BURNS IN HELL! [more inside]
A song against the powerful. Or the all-powerful. Or about screaming into the void. Hey, piano! [more inside]
A quick finger style arrangement of the Everly Brothers' classic for baritone guitar. [more inside]
Something may happen if you do. [more inside]
Instrumental: bass, guitars, drum machine, arpeggiator. Sort of industrial at times.
Festive dungeon synth! [more inside]
Cover of "Anabelle" by Gillian Welch. Bass, guitar, accordion, lots of reverb. [more inside]
been trying to record some vocals lately which of course meant trying to figure out what the melody and lyrics would even be so I did an improv vocal session and then repeated the best of it 3 or 4 times and did a rough mix. [more inside]
A bit of dungeon synth.
Another ambient office jam - some granular textures and filter pinging over a slow chord progression. Needed something relaxing, then got too relaxed and needed a bassline. [more inside]
First song I've completed after falling out of making electronic music over 10 years ago. Going for spooky chillout vibes. Any kind of feedback is appreciated.
If you're a nonmogamous sapphic lover this song is for you to bump to. Think Dancefloor love and pheromones that have bodies and hot and moving [more inside]
I was really very tired when I wrote and sang this. This is one of my more danceable numbers, although the subject matter is rather dour. I was trying not to wallow. [more inside]
I'd found out about lofi and chillhop music through some youtube streams during the lockdown, and that it was excellent "wallpaper music" for working-at-home doing drab admin. After a few months, I decided I understood some of the tropes, and tried my hand at making some. I had no idea this had been a mainstream genre for a decade already. As usual, a kinda half-baked golem emerges. [more inside]
I got a new microphone to replace my old defunct one. It's nothing special but I had to test it out right away. What I learned is I'm going to want a pop-filter probably. [more inside]
Well it's been a minute since I've posted anything here. This is a "one take" cover of the Beatles song "Blackbird". Sung while playing on my old upright church piano in my living during a lunch break. [more inside]
Another old sea song, harmonising with myself. [more inside]
I wrote and recorded this one today. It's not what I expected it to be but it's track number 12 and so I'll stop here and try to write some lyrics and record some vocals next week and hopefully make an album.
This is probably the third iteration of this song. No vocals yet. I'm not sure I like it, but I'm trying to hone it nonetheless.
I'm working on this album concept where the earth's orbit has changed bringing cataclysmic changes to the the environment and season, ultimately bring about the extinction of mankind. This is sort of a nod to climate change but with a more dramatic, science-fiction narrative to emphasize and accelerate the outcome... [more inside]
I'm not sure what kind of album I'm trying to make. My emotions seem to be at conflict. [more inside]
In honor of the upcoming first day of school, here is a song about the pressures of the morning. [more inside]
Another song I recorded lately. Instrumental for now but I think I can add some gothic vibe vocals to this one.
It's been a couple of years since I tried writing music but I recently got a setup I could produce music on again. Here is one my first attempts on that. I threw some vocaloid vocals on it way far in the back to give it a vibe and to express a melody going on in my head.
Playing with feedback loops with a slowly shifting pattern. [more inside]
been lucky enough to discover one of the purest aural pleasures in the world: middle-aged men from the middle of north carolina gossiping in that cornbread and turnip green twang. wish i could hear it forever but alas: i live in the desert now. [more inside]
My kids complained they couldn't dance to any of my music so I threw and impromptu office dance party with them. [more inside]
In the grand tradition of posting the same song multiple times, here's the final version of Adrenaline Hangover (previously, previouslier)
I did this as a response to a composition prompt to imagine and alien landscape and then imagine it fading from reality.
just kind of feeling good about stuff!!
An all-analog Ambient Office jam [more inside]
…Your Flights. I wrote this as part of this weekly Junto challenge, which, BTW, is a really fun thing to do when you have the time. [more inside]
