Another improvised electro-acoustic/glitch tune.
Next song in a series of electronic pieces with sampled acoustic instruments.
Folky electronic music.
this song was birthed of an experiment to compose a Folk-style song and then doing it electro-style instrumentally and vocally. so the result is a folk-ish drum beat and accompaniment (and chord progression in the chorus) with electronic actual drums, synth bass, electric piano and electro vocals. enjoy, and never love again.
A little bit of cute electronic hope for everyone today.

Cake. Delicious cake. [more inside]
Kate Bush Remix #3. This one by request. [more inside]
Electronic. A bit dancey. An exercise in using an arpeggiator for the bass line and gradual build-up over the course of the track.
Soundtrack for the Super Mario Bros game that never was. [more inside]
More music for deep space, take your protein pill and put your helmet on. [more inside]

Slow, drony, monochordal, minimalist, ambient electro.
This is the first part of my attempt to do something akin to the work by Gustav Holst. The difference with me is that it's electronic music, and that I'm being more astronomical than mythological. We start with Venus. [more inside]
I don't really remember how I made this...it was several weeks ago now...but I think it's old tamborine and piano samples; plus, bicycle spokes? and dowel rods maybe? yeah, it's made of stuff. [more inside]
A dark electronic piece. Resonant bass intro, echoing bells then slightly distorted drums and detuned synths. [more inside]
heavy distorted electronic - 4/4 beat, EBM-ish... [more inside]
An instrumental electronic song I wrote last month, which straddles the line between tense and laid-back. [more inside]
A bunch of bored Intro to Music History undergrads, coerced into making some weird sounds. [more inside]
A short instrumental fade-in type piece from my Armless Victory project
Some lighthearted dance music for Daleks, from an unusually fertile period in 2009.
this one...is actually..."pretty"... [more inside]
Blippity blop - just a track made on my EM1, more of a snippet, really.
made with small wooden boxes and bicycle spokes. Very dancy, if you dance kinda funny. [more inside]
an instrumental song with acoustic guitar, harmonica, samples, birds, drums and beats.
In which a sweeping tide of sonic movement carries the listener away to transcendent new shores of emotion, and leaves them there absent cab fare back. [more inside]
my friend found and hacked a dollar-store musical toy duck...and this piece is made of the awful and fascinating sounds we made with it. [more inside]
you'll never guess what instruments are in it. [more inside]
More noisy electro/break bitmuxing. (beta mix)
Millimeters of Mercury is back after the end of finals at USC to present this decidedly retro electropop song that bounces and pounds in B flat major, occasionally straying into harmonic minor and dabbling in diminished chords and flat sevenths. Enjoy. =]
This began as an improvised piece involving a Poly Evolver synth, a Memory Man pedal, and an iPhone running Moog Filtatron. Then I decided to bury everything in noise, fuzz and tape flutter until it became nigh-unlistenable. Enjoy!
I wrote these pieces for a video game I'm making. Here they are, all together in a line. [more inside]
Welcome to Teen Island (Season One). We here at MTV started this reality show with the best of intentions. But things have gone horribly, horribly wrong. [more inside]
It's one minute long. It's background music for a robot factory.
Ambient sample-based electronic music with dubstep beats and a John Tavener clip.
chill, metropolitan 80s chic. free download on soundcloud.
A song I wrote when I got back from Japan. With field recordings from Japan. I said I was going to go back and work on it more, but I really don't know what to do and am kind of just complacent with what I have right now. [more inside]
Postal Service-like electronic pop track. Features my vocals for the first time! [more inside]
In 2004 Dave Winer shut down weblogs.com. This is a track based on the audio from his announcement. [more inside]
What happens when Farfisas, mellotrons, synthesizers, and the muddled sounds of a party get to play in the same room. A 60/40 combination of warm bendy melodies and sharp electronic determinism.
Electronic silliness featuring Agent Smith's human beings are a virus speech. [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]
