bide your time and everything becomes clear

Dark and moody. Lots of reverb. This is my fourth generative piece.

Ancient Music Makers

My second song ever, made in Ableton Live. I figured out how to use the automation controls for better fades in/fades out, and I think it has a cleaner sound overall than my first one. Comments welcome.

Napping in the valley at dusk

My first song; made in Ableton Live 7 LE. It's a drone/ambient noise piece. Comments welcome, but please be gentle. (Warning: high dynamic range, starts out quiet, but gets loud.) [more inside]

butterflies

I just came up with this and recorded it on the H2 (I upped the volume a bit in Audition afterward). I'm pretty bad at finger picking and this owes a lot to John Fahey and Roy Harper. Not that they're bad at finger picking.... There's a faster and shorter version as well, but I liked the drone of this one more.

I Burned This Song

For this month's LYRIC Challenge. It has a very simple backing track, consisting of three elements: a drone (from my trusty Juno 60 analog synth), little wooden bells (from the 100 yen shop!), and my daughter's plastic ukulele, which has a picture of Maisy Mouse on it.

Man of Very Few Words

Well, it's a few days late for the November '07 MeFi Music Challenge, but my on-the-fritz computer spent most of the month in the repair shop, plus the dog ate my homework, but better late than never, I reckon. So this one's going under the veryfewwords tag, as if the song title didn't give that away. [more inside]

Some Kind Of Superhero

For the MeFi Music Challenge. This one uses mouthbow, bodhran (but it sounds like a bass drum), a little bell, shakers, some little woodblock rattley things, a drone, and voice.

New Orleans 2005

On this 2nd anniversary of hurricane Katrina, I thought I'd post this song, which I wrote and recorded in the days following the disaster. In 2005, when I first posted it to my own web site, I received some comments from folks who were pretty incensed by it. I'd never had such visceral negative reactions to a song. Should you be interested, you can read some of those comments and my replies here. I also just posted a live version (from a gig earlier this month) to YouTube. [lyrics inside]

Blanket

Many layers of distortion and sampling create a blanket of noise that I find beautiful and terrifying. Please to be playing this as loud as possible.

Tetris Drone

This is what happens when you play a guitar with a gameboy and an e-bow. Kind of noisy! Also, kind of awesome.

The band died on stage

Uhm. It could be used, like, in a movie, where the band dies on stage, or something else happens. More at my site.

Oh Death

Here's my version of this most haunting of American folk songs. It's very stripped-down: just voice, drone, a bass drum and a shekere. In the time-honored folk tradition, I've made a few minor lyrics changes here and there, and the melody I'm using is different from the Dock Boggs or Stanley Brothers versions of the tune. Anyway, it's one of my very favorite traditional songs. Hope you enjoy.

AND

Acid-ambient space dub loops. This is a live jam I did with a friend while visiting him in Seattle. The rig was comprised of me playing small and very slow beat loops in Traktor at BPMs relationally fractional to a master tempo of 110 BPM, while my friend looped samples in Live, both from prerecorded and live samples from mixboard outputs and sends. There is a Macbook microphone involved in the sampling of the room and as a feedback and reverb source. There is no shared MIDI clock in use - all tempo/pitch control is manual, and listen for long beat-count tempo-drifts of loop components, which are manipulated and intentional. The majority of this dub takes place as variations of two beats in one "measure", sometimes four but never more. This cut of the track is the last ten minutes of approximately one hour of play and loop building. It is pre-release version intended for derivitive works, remixes and redubs. (If you wish to remix, sample, splice, loop, fuck, deconstruct or otherwise destroy this track, I would vastly prefer that you please contact me via the email in my profile for the uncompressed and unprocessed file and the full Creative Commons license. Please do not use this low-bitrate file.)

Apidae

The bees argue, in their black ball, A flying hedgehog, all prickles. The man with grey hands stands under the honeycomb Of their dreams, the hived station Where trains, faithful to their steel arcs, Leave and arrive, and there is no end to the country.

Empty Spaces

Dark ambience with strange, swelling synths. Okay, I admit it, I can't even remember recording this track.

Drone - 2005.03.29

Here's one of my earlier experiments in drone music. It's electric guitar, played live through delay, fuzz and volume pedals.

Everybody seems to think it's so important that you have to grab for money all the time. Seems to be the main goal in everybody's life.
