Illustrated Resonators for Reverbs

I had been looking for an excuse to use a few ableton live effects (namely a resonator on a vocoded vocal track). I figured I'd try it out on this weakerthans song. [more inside]

Sneaker

The title track from an EP I released today on Bandcamp, subtitled "a mini cyberspace adventure". Electronic bass music with a moderate tempo.

Frog

Live tweaking glitchy percussion loops, with warm synths to sweeten the deal.

3753 cruithne

Continuing with my beat-oriented theme of late. Autechre-like, but they're still 1,000 times better than I am. This one's noisy and glitchy, just the way I like it.

chthonian planets 4

A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...

galactic halo

A mellow, trippy piece with a discordant edge. File under "dark ambient for stoners."

death is the road to awe

A relaxing drone; noise waveforms are dominant again

industrial society and its future

Extra dark and ominous; uses mostly noise waveforms instead of sine waves

bide your time and everything becomes clear

Dark and moody. Lots of reverb. This is my fourth generative piece.

what goes on in those dark rooms

Six layers of sound, created completely from scratch in the Operator soft synth, sent through a filter delayed return track

i've seen what they do

Second generative piece; bassy pad and six layers of percussion

many of you won't survive the night

Another dark ambient piece; more fun than a farmhouse under seige

while making an attempt to escape the city

Howling wind ambience, strongly beat-oriented, and spikes of high and low notes

isolated research station orbiting a bizarre planet

Endcaps of warbling drone punctuated by bass stabs, and a middle section of high rhythmic complexity [more inside]

drifting out to sea

Relaxing ambient piece. I continue to love using the automation controls in Ableton Live.

a woman claiming to be the devil

A harsh, glitchy, beat-driven piece.

boxing in a flooded basement

My most melody-driven piece thus far. I'm not totally happy with it, but I got tired of tweaking things. I have several other half-finished music projects I want to work on, so it was nice push this out the door.

xenomorph banging drums

Perhaps my most "complete" song yet. A five-minute ambient / glitch backbeat punctuated by percussion.

from troposphere to exosphere

More ambient / noise / drone stuff. [more inside]

Mellow Ocean Groove

Just a sketch/idea of a song. Doubt I'll do anything with this, but it seemed a shame to toss it. [more inside]

Ancient Music Makers

My second song ever, made in Ableton Live. I figured out how to use the automation controls for better fades in/fades out, and I think it has a cleaner sound overall than my first one. Comments welcome.

Napping in the valley at dusk

My first song; made in Ableton Live 7 LE. It's a drone/ambient noise piece. Comments welcome, but please be gentle. (Warning: high dynamic range, starts out quiet, but gets loud.) [more inside]

the microphone hears it

modular, snap-tite interlock pop. A song about recording alone.

Terry Riley: In C

This recording is an experiment to see how well Ableton Live handles a performance of Terry Riley's "In C". (more inside)

Entropy

I love evolving a feeling or a story out of feedback. This uses the free DFX Transverb plug with Ableton Live, where I set up various send channels to feed on and eventually destroy each other.
