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.

Based loosely of Queens of the Stone Age's "Suture Up My Future" [more inside]
Silly instrumental in 11/8.
I really have no explanation for what I was thinking on this.
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 synth version of The Ballad of Barbara Allen, with beats and some sampling work. [more inside]

Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.
Two chords: Em and G. But don't worry. You're not part of the Zombie Bot Army. Because Frog and Toad are. And they're staying up all night drinking and having snacks at a bar with PB. [more inside]
A breakbeat/big beat spy song -- one part Propellerheads ripoff, one part Space Ghost nonsense. [more inside]
Stressed out? Listen to this healing song and follow it's prescription to the letter! [more inside]
Only tangentially related to the theme of the challenge, but my testing audience thought the song sounded like ripples, and that seemed like enough (plus it motivated me to finish sooner than I might have!).
