I created this the first time I really fired-up Garageband, sometime in May of 2005. It's a cliche of itself, provoking nostalgia, and makes me laugh out-loud. Hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think!
Schitzy, glitzy music from the centre of your CPU.
A song by my 16 year old brother.
Some deep, plodding minimalist electronica. Another tracking effort. Even so, I don't think I constrained myself enough - I could probably leave some more beats out...
Halo inspired trance for your Saturday night dance party. I started this one three years ago and finally finished it this afternoon. I don't write for this genre very often, so let me know what you think!
This is less of a song and more of a sketch, but I found it on my drive and I'm going to post it. Much less developed than my other submission. It's more of a half-assed experiment with drum signatures and reverb with some granulation synth stuff tied into the reverb and echoes. Expect little, but it's pretty hypnotic.
This is just a random electronic noodling. It was recorded/performed "live" or mostly realtime - all filter sweeps are live, as are on the fly rhythm and melody edits. The style is inspired by Coil's The Snow EP - very early techno/acid. The melody and synth lines were inspired by the HAARP signal as re-encoded for audible spectrum. This sample also plays in the background for much of the song in various permutations, The rhythm signature was inspired by an old crufty-noisy oscillating desk fan. The timebase for the song was an odd and atypical signature to replicate the random rhythmicness of the noisy desk fan. Warning: For some reason a small subset of people have independently complained of having heart palpitations while listening to this song. Something about the rhythm signature, or perhaps the HAARP sample. *shrug*
In 1998, my first MIDI workstation was stolen in a burglary. It was covered by renter's insurance, and I was able to upgrade. This instrumental track is the fourth 'movement' of a project I called enigmatics. I was trying to get familiar with the new equipment.
Remember MODs? Trackers? I still like to compose in them sometimes - it can be fun to work within the constraints of the format, and see how much music you can fit in a tiny file. The source file for this glitchy track comes in at 58k.
this is my favorite piece from a little electronic thing I do under the name DJ Dialtone.
Spooky beats, sharpened knives, with a madman on that ol' church organ.
