slightly wistful outtro-style synth jam... you know what, this one goes out to Cortex!!!! Thanks so much for all you've done for us on here over the years and hope we'll still see some sick Cortex action on the black every now and again!!!
I realize it's May, but you know
Slow dance to the outbursts of generative electronic folderol. [more inside]
Featuring the voice of greenish as the Computer. I thought it would be fun to do it slower, using mostly analog instruments and a computer to record it, in juxtaposition to how Kraftwerk originally recorded it in 1981 (using computer instruments and I'm guessing analog tape). Also I was feverish with Lyme Disease while I recorded it. Song #11 in Unu Kanto Po Semajno.
My son asked me to record his heartbeat for some school thing a few months ago. I had this heartbeat lying around so I added some Moog to it and Bob's your uncle it became a synthpop song.
New recording, old sentiment. [more inside]

A song by (my band) Freelove Fenner about handicrafts and labour. Features layered guitar, farfisa, bass, drums and my reverbed voice. Recorded on an Otari 1" 8-track.
This tune is another example of a lyric directly inspired by a Metafilter comment. Shortly after reading the comment, I wrote the lyrics, and posted them in that same thread. Got around to singing it (well, it's half sung, half intoned, actually) the other night. Video here. [more inside]
Cover of The Rascals' song that was a Billboard #1 hit on the day I was born. With a bit of a nod to "The Model." [more inside]
One patch, one take.
Created in 1996 from a telephone message from a divorce lawyer.
Water as escapism.
A sugar rush ditty.
A simple track for a simple day.
Ambient minimalist fake-analog Tha-ish wallpaper, 107 BPM's. [more inside]
An ambient electronic piece I put together a long while back. This is a tonal explication of a Frost poem I love. I felt that his words were perfectly descriptive of my own dissociated days spent in a haze of necessarily indulgent coma, when I should have been out doing other things. I built it on a framework of 32 bar phrases. There was something significant about the numerology of it, but I have since forgotten why. Maybe because it was 2002 and I was born in 1970, or something like that.
