Cancer Patient

Mmm, 6/8 time... The vocal's less questionable than the other songs I've posted, but it is quite raspy in places because I ended up doing it in a couple takes after already having spent an hour two whipping the screamy bits of M.A.D. into shape, so my voice was a bit shot.

M.A.D.

WE CAN DO THE MUTUALLY-ASSURED DESTRUCTION

Invocation

A long time ago, this song used to have words. They were super lame. Now it makes for a good guitar freak out. The drums were the first thing I ever made in Ableton Live. Doing the tempo changes at the end in Live was a pain (but I still love you, Live!). I think the drums sound a bit stiff and robotic (in a bad way), but it's still about the best I can do with real drum sounds. The vocal's a bit dodgy, but is Good Enough For Now.

Do you understand how I need you?

I wrote this song for my ladyfriend a few months back, and recorded it just now. Happy Valentine's Day.

At the Open Mic

A rough structural demo of one of the songs I've written this month. Catchy, upbeat reflection on the simpler, softer times of my highschool musical upbringing. Imagine this with a dozen people clapping and singing along. And maybe an awesome guitar solo. I've still got three weeks, after all.

Perfect Martyr

One of my bands, The Man So Cool, did some recording a couple weeks ago for a demo disc. We're still working on final vocals and proper mixes, but this is a pretty good rough mix of one of the songs. Links to the other three songs can be gotten over yonder.

Full of Love

Working draft of a song I'm engineering—written by friend and former bandmate Brian, who is on guitar and vocals, with keys added by moi. Feedback/criticism desirable. This is my first real effort to play producer/engineer to someone else's material.

Through The Rain

This one is really lo-fi as I don't have the master tape and it's a 21 year old rough demo -- and I do mean rough. :) Recorded Spring 1985 in dorm room A-1016, The Evergreen State College. (More inside.)

Locked in a Garage

Another discarded demo that would otherwise never have seen the light of day. It's too long, the drum machine is just a placeholder, the guitars are sloppy (DEMO!) and the lyrics are sort of goofy. Those aren't excuses, they are reasons. It was kind of thrown onto the scrapheap. But why would I post it? Because I'm addicted to this now. This one's about a nervous breakdown.

Yellow (Mic Test Demo)

An acoustic rough draft—the first thing I recorded after I bought my first condesor mic. Pretty, improvised.

Summer's Ending

Now that the summer's ending, there's a cold wind blowing in / So we've got to build some shelter, before it rains again

SkyTrain

A sketch of a sunny, bouncy ambient-ish track I Fruitylooped a month or so ago. I may actually completely rewrite it, or something similar, now I have access to a Jupiter 8, and can take my Boards Of Canada / Kraftwerk thieveries to more convincing levels....
