The Other Shoe

Peppy and poppy, though I don't really have a pop voice. Who needs more than two chords, anyway? [more inside]

Hello, Are You There? I'm Listening.

Kind of experimental...starts off very synthy. Not a song exactly but probably enjoyable. [more inside]

a strange and mysterious adventure

This instrumental track was originally named "Em wrong" because it came out of absentmindedly playing my guitar while watching tv and accidentally strumming an E minor chord incorrectly on the 3rd fret. The resulting song has an uneasy, mysterious vibe. [more inside]

Once again, friends, it's the Smoke Benders: Daysuke on tuba, Naoya on drums, and me on pocket drill, diddley bow, light-triggered synth and vox. Live in Toyama, Japan. Video here.

Electro Sonic Fusion Thrusters, Engage!

I have tried a couple of tunes in seven but never in five. So here is a new one for the odd-meter enthusiasts.

The Fanstastic Voyage of the U.S.S. Totes McGotes

The usual silliness from me. The sauciest synth licks are to be found at 0:54 and 1:05.

Star Dream

Smoothy, dreamy chillout vibes with gently gliding arpeggios swirling over luscious synth chords. Think Futurecop meets Mike Oldfield.

A Joke I Didn't Understand

This tune is another example of a lyric directly inspired by a Metafilter comment. Shortly after reading the comment, I wrote the lyrics, and posted them in that same thread. Got around to singing it (well, it's half sung, half intoned, actually) the other night. Video here. [more inside]

Happy Bunny

A gamelan-inspired bit of canned synth fun.

Spacetime

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]

Bad Romance (ukulele & synth one-man live cover)

Yes, I know, it's Gaga, and it's overplayed, and likely to polarise opinion. But on the other hand, despite all of that, this really is a good song. (And you can tell it's a good song because it survived me butchering it with a uke.) Video version is available here. [more inside]

Bring the Chase

Guitar and synth rock, with a certain whiff of the 70s about it, and a comparatively laid back chorus that I'm pretty happy with. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

Reactance

A new synth program still in progress at the time. I hit 'record' only to consider various knob twiddlings, instead it turned out to be a complete solo. [more inside]

Syncopia

Tension-laden synth piece with analog elements. Expect ticking time-bombs, paranoid running at night, and an unseen enemy catching up with you.

That's the Way it Wiggles

I've been doing a lot of gigs lately, so why not post some of the music here, right? This one is from a jaw harp mini-festival I was part of on March 28, 2010. I'm playing the Vietnamese jaw harp called the Dan Moi, along with a bass line from my JUNO 60 analog synth. Video of this same performance can be seen at YouTube.

Separate My Heart

A little synth-folk ditty, with my friend Alaina singing lead. The idea was to write a murder ballad from the woman's perspective.

ninety second instrumental

Back at work as resident composer for a Tokyo fashion house... this time they want four 90-second instrumental spots, for web presentations. Handed this one in to them the other day, but they nixed it: too dramatic, just not right for the project. So, back to the drawing board. Thought I'd put it here, though, so as not to consign it to the Land of Unheard Music.

Let Me Know

A short, sweet synthpop/r&b jam. I've been listening to Confessions alot lately, and this is sort of my take on the modern r&b genre.

Once It Was The Colour Of Saying (Work In Progress)

This is incomplete and very current WIP from my glacial synth-based alter ego and is perhaps something of a companion piece to White Feather. I'd really appreciate opinions on (a) the pretty drastic transitions in the piece from the rhythmic to the quasi-orchestral and back again, (b) whether the lyric theme has any kind of cheddar whiff, and (c) whether it needs more "oomph" under the orchestral bits (actually difficult to pull off without destroying the mood - I've tried....). Any other comments welcome of course - but this is unfinished and well rough so....geeza break. [more inside]
