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!!

"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]

A noisy piece derived from a vibraphone sample. [more inside]
way more fantasy/forest synth than dungeon synth this time for sure, but the story continues. might have hit the idea of a lullaby too hard on the nose. [more inside]
Mostly electronic. An increasingly oppressive cloud of ambience over a basic beat.
The latest Junto prompt asks you to do something out of tune, so I put my phone next to my amp and started recording myself playing these two riffs and detuning the A string every so often.
Solo Spanish guitar
This is a piece for (synth) strings, trumpet, and drums. [more inside]
Kind of an LCD Soundsystem vibe
Trying out a new piece of gear, the Roland AD-10 which I used on the acoustic guitar and double bass [more inside]

Got inspired by hearing the Los Lobos cover of the song on KUVO and liked it so much I cut a demo. [more inside]
No guitars. Clumsy and doomy EDM. [more inside]
A melancholy electronic song made under the name "Alone on the Ice"
