Made this somewhat experimental ambient-ish piece last night, feeling a tiny bit of hope about the world. It's based on slowed-down samples of a hang-drum, with a keyboard part doing most of the rest. [more inside]
A psychedelic synthpop meditation on dreams, the romance of travel, the uncanny desert night, and technology approaching obsolescence. If Tears For Fears collaborated with 1970-era Steve Reich, you might get something like this. Based on a painting by Georgy Nissky and a time-lapse video of two vintage railroad semaphores in the New Mexico desert. [more inside]
Another fuzzy, rather lo-fi outing for Sredni Vashtar... [more inside]
This is a piece I recorded for a silent short comprised of Public Domain footage from 1936 taken from the Prelinger Archives. let me know if you'd like me to share the video.
Penultimate track from Creature Of Habit in which we find our protagonist brooding over the realization of the previous track, and facing down the Creature. [more inside]
Song four from Creature Of Habit. [more inside]
An atmospheric rendering of the classic Jonathan Richman song. [more inside]
After spending a few years rehearsing and making rough and ready demos, Sredni Vashtar finally made it into a real studio last month. Here's one of them - the mix is still a bit rough so it works best on headphones. [more inside]
More noisy electro/break bitmuxing. (beta mix)
chill, metropolitan 80s chic. free download on soundcloud.
For my first MeFiMu post, I decided to whip up a recording of this bit o'sad bastard piano balladry. It's a rough recording, all pretty much first takes, but I think it works well enough. (And no, despite the title, this is not a Halloween challenge entry.) [more inside]
My friend Mel and I have started a musical project together, and since Radiohead is our biggest mutual influence, we decided to start by covering one of their songs. [more inside]
First song I wrote on keyboard, for my new album. [more inside]
An electronic track I did in my room at Ten Thousand Waves, outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. Influences include Boards of Canada, Nathan Fake, and a little Aphex Twin. There's a longer description here.
Lyrically naughty, musically atmospheric. Features guitars, vocals, brushed drums, African thumb harp, clothes hangers, and a shy half of a fake symphony orchestra.
a somewhat dark, ambient space. deliberately abstract. you tell ME what it means. [for the music geeks: this started as a single wav file (sampled off of a DVD), with multiple loop points (and loop repeat settings), passed through six serial VST/DX effects. All work done in Wavelab 3.0]
