What happened was this: I discovered an Ableton tutorial about how to create a pretty convincing shitty-old-tape effect, and then I upgraded my phone to iOS 7 and heard the new ringtones (which are actually really nice), and then I started noodling around, and I made a little thing of which I am unreasonably fond.
All noises made from my face, wrangled by various Ableton effects.
My girlfriend said this would make a good theme song for a new Miami Vice reboot. I'm both proud and terribly ashamed of this notion. [more inside]
A long one-take improvisitation played live with Ableton echo and a vocal beat loop I recorded that I knob-twiddled while I played.
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]
Summertime gives me a lot of time to write music. Especially outside. This track samples "Do While" by Oval. I wanted to turn an ambient track into something a bit more danceable. Any thoughts?
An ambient song with some loops and drums and stuff. The first thing I've written in months.
My friends made a rap song...then they asked me to remix it for an album they're releasing soon. Here is the result. It samples the amazing reggae song, Uptown Top Ranking by Althea and Donna.
A track I'm working on for a concept EP. Worked on it instead of going to compsci lecture today. Crazy resonators. Way more rhythmic than anything I've done in a while. [more inside]

Ethereal dubstep/psychedelic vocoder jam. I think I love this song. [more inside]
An electronic take on Pablo Casals playing Prelude in G. [more inside]
A spaced out dub remix of OJ Da Juiceman. Features some cocaine rap so it is not for fragile ears. [more inside]

A short sample turned into a 4 minute electronic dance track. [more inside]
A bassy electronic song that might or might not be about changing tampons. [more inside]
Dreamy pop music for the Velvet Underground Challenge [more inside]

Writing music is a healthy way of coping with exam stress. Although it doesn't really help me study... [more inside]

For the April two chords challenge: As usual, a repetitive song. This time written in a slightly confusing time signature. [more inside]
A song mostly written on a Friday. [more inside]
Pretty entrancing, happy song written after seeing the Mountain Goats with my girlfriend. It's all electronic, so don't expect anything similar to The Mountain Goats. It's just happy, is all. [more inside]
A song inspired by the recreation of the 808 Cowbell by Francis Preve. Basically just started off with a simple chord progression and Francis Preve's "Less Cowbell" patch, and went off from there.

A really simple, happy song [more inside]
