This is my synth-based anthem cover of the song by singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt. This version is an earlier draft from 2018, mostly from a whirlwind month when I was trying to get as much done before my trial of Ableton Live ended. Me on vocals, synth/loops. Many thanks to not_on_display for the arrangement idea and feedback through multiple iterations. Basically I made this to help myself feel better, and I figure it's something I could share especially now. [more inside]
Also electronics + piano. A bit more pianistic and melodic; more "pretty" than "driven."
Electronics + Piano. Lots of harmonic and rhythmic drive.
A psuedo-guitar-like ambient song performed on modular synthesizer. This is the third track on my new release Nereus, available on Bandcamp. [more inside]
Building a beat around an organ loop [more inside]
A short instrumental piece (featuring synth) in which I basically have fun building from a loop. This is my entry for the MeFi Music challenge to submit music inspired by a MeFi post (I Saw This Thing On The Blue And...). Credit actually goes to three MetaFilter-related posts from last month: two MeFi posts by not_on_display and one MeFi Music post by ignignokt; they inspired me to create electronic music again after a decade+ hiatus.

I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental. [more inside]
Just an experiment of guitar electronic fusion I've been playing with. I'm planning on doing an album-full of these types of songs soon.
Piano vs. Electronics. Kinda epic even though it's not all that long! [more inside]
A loud, frenetic jam in F#, dancing between half-time/double-time, with synth slap bass!
It was snowing and what better to do than mess with the arpeggiator? [more inside]
I just loaded up Ubuntu Studio with some soft synths, and recorded this CarrotAdventure-inspired piece. It came out sounding like a game show theme, hence the name. [more inside]
Have a merry Synthmas with this peaceful electronic soundscape from the Men's Snarehouse. [more inside]
An upbeat synthwave / retrowave instrumental. [more inside]
Piano, strings, and electronics on a journey across a strange, wide landscape. [more inside]
Instrumental with big tunes and riffs, and a driving cadence that's perfect for cycling (especially if the weather should force you to ride indoors). Bandcamp download (with artwork).
Retro, funky, electro
A synthed out, vocoded take on Beck's extremely non-synthy song off of Sea Change, as an excuse to fiddle around with Reason 8. [more inside]
Uptempo, hard-driving instrumental for synth+piano, with elements of trance and classical. First track on my Anthem of the Heart EP. [more inside]
Another song from my newish free EP of quirky electronic cheese, "Part Time Drum Machine." I sort of picture a mechanical sunrise operated by heavy robots intent on bringing light joy. You know. [more inside]
From my new (free!) EP 'Part Time Drum Machine', this is an instrumental keyboard-based track driven forward by a cheap synth bass and Casio-ish beats. A different kind of style than you may have heard from me before. [more inside]
Synth-based dance with a nocturnal air. [more inside]
Flyball battle anthem. Not quite "Eye of the Tiger", to be sure, but you can still turn it up and rock out. Electronic instrumental. [more inside]
More massive amounts of Massive. I think it builds up nicely. Let me know what you think.
Based on The World Famous' challenge idea in this thread, to make a song using only one note. [more inside]
Pretty self explanatory. Drug teens doing teen drugs. [more inside]
I had a bit of fun with this: it's about a relationship gone wrong. I believe that the dual bass part is rhythmically interesting. Double bass and synth bass rhythmically intertwine and are coupled with a synth trumpet. There may be some Brian Eno influences a la The Drop. My album is available for $5 download at CD Baby: The Dividing Range. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/theseedsofautumn
New and much improved mix of a song from a few years ago. Kinda rock-metal-electronic fun with a pretty good helping of vocal harmonies. Critique away!
This has techno stuff arguing back and forth with pianos, a theme that's conflicted about what meter it's in, a cadence that keeps trying to change the key down a whole step, and ponies. Plenty of ponies. But I think this is my last Luna project for a while now!
A minor-key, rondo-like composition for piano, bass, percussion, and various squelchy electronic bits. Hail the coming of Princess Luna! [more inside]
Upbeat dancey-trancey music for driving fast and far away (from wherever you want to be far away from). Never mind the meter, you can dance to it!
Short, fun and bouncy, melodic, dancelike-although-odd-metered, all electronic instrumental. Sort of like a lobotomized Dream Theatre interpreted via Kitsune2 would be one way of putting it. [more inside]
This is what happens when a wimpy acoustic guitar player writes a song entirely with a vintage synthesizer. [more inside]
This started as a little tune I made up a couple years when I was trying to register for classes at my community college using their online system which wasn't working. All the parts on this track were recorded by me using my friend Ian's microKORG XL.
Live tweaking glitchy percussion loops, with warm synths to sweeten the deal.
Dub synth techno. [more inside]
A gamelan-inspired bit of canned synth fun.
A little progish - lots of analog synth, lots of interesting sounds, harmonies, counterpoint, a little odd meter, hopefully pretty catchy chorus, and one of the more obscure lyrics I've written (lyrics inside)... lots of stuff! [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]
A lush electronic meets shoegaze(?) song influenced by a Steve Reich piece. [more inside]
More laptop electronica. Ambient/IDM production approach, but with a bit of melody and punchy beat. [more inside]
A Saturday afternoon lazily spent synthily. [more inside]
Homesick synths, bittersweet beats. [more inside]
A soft soak in a warm bath of electroluminescent air gel.
I don't even know what genre this would be considered. This started as three guitar tracks recorded for a very upbeat techno/house track with a beautiful female vocal. When it ultimately was not used for that song, I took the three guitars and built this slow groove thing around them. [more inside]
Abstract and minimal electronic piece. Inspired by movies like Manhunter and Tenebrae. Warning - beginning is quiet by comparison. [more inside]
Glitchy, semi-improvised piece with disjointed synths and samples.
Six layers of sound, created completely from scratch in the Operator soft synth, sent through a filter delayed return track
