Reaching Further

An ambient guitar/bass/string jam. None of this is real.
I didn't really live through the Eighties, but I'm pretty sure this it what it might have sounded like.
Warning: Song is epic long. It's got some variety to it, though.

They Slither, So There

Squeezed in on the last day of the challenge, this is a modern snake charming piece. It's ambient/experimental/electronic. Complete with rattlesnake sample.

Some guitar-based ambient music with little digital plinks and plonks

Crystals

It was 1999, I'd just graduated from trackers to fruityloops, and I was listening to a LOT of Warp and Boards Of Canada, and I made this. It's still my favourite, despite being the first tune I ever completed. Tsk.

Long Night and Nothing to Do

I wrote this song in one night for a school assignment that was due the next day. The music was really just flowing out of me. I don't even remember writing most of this because I was so tired. It was created to be a score for a 9-minute short film that I made, but it's grown on me so much that I've decided to include it on my first album. It does need some work, though: the mixing is way off in some areas (and even distorted) and it's way too long to include on an album.

Flagging.

Glow

I made this song last summer (2006). It has the usual synth and drum machine, as well as the addition of a little guitar. Very fast-paced, yet relaxed. Oh, and, of course, it'll someday (maybe) have lyrics.

Aware

Very atmospheric. This song will always remind me Christmas, as I wrote most of it during the month of December. Just like my previous track, this will also have vocals someday.

Unknown

One of the better songs I have lined up for my first album (which is still in its early stages). Heavy drums, synth, happiness. Also, this is my first post to MeFi Music.

The Birds Do Thus

An ambient electronic piece I put together a long while back. This is a tonal explication of a Frost poem I love. I felt that his words were perfectly descriptive of my own dissociated days spent in a haze of necessarily indulgent coma, when I should have been out doing other things. I built it on a framework of 32 bar phrases. There was something significant about the numerology of it, but I have since forgotten why. Maybe because it was 2002 and I was born in 1970, or something like that.

Acidspit13 (digital, with piano)

Here's a "golden oldie" way back from 2005, it's trancey but breaks convention in an ambient/acid sort of way. Intentionally chillin' groovetrak.

Moon Factory

Another imaginary industrial space. I picture this place as vary large, probably planet sized. Apologies for the abrupt ending.

Star is Smiling

It's 7am, I've been up all night, I'm tearing my hair out, I don't have any cigarettes left, and I can't get this particular piece of code working. What is there to do but write a song (and pray for cigarettes)?

Down with the Tempo

Alright. I used to think using GarageBand (and its loops) to make songs was "cheating". Then I started to use it. It's amazing how fun and easy it is, and you can really create some great sounding music. Here is my first downtempo song, entitled "Down with the Tempo". Enjoy!

Coils And Clocks

Whirring, humming, clicking, wheezing dark ambient/glitch, from my new album, Unseen.

La Mer est la Maitre

Ambient haunting seascape type piece. It's nice in an "I'm going to throw myself off the top of this cliff" type of way.

Chunky Ohming

A chunkier, clunkier version of Ohming with a coolcat intro thrown in, just for laughs. Hey, why not?

Perfect Gun

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...

My Baby You'll Be

I've been awake for days and the only option was to write some music. Some ambient electronica to help you (and me) sleep. (The title refers to this story.)

Apidae

The bees argue, in their black ball, A flying hedgehog, all prickles. The man with grey hands stands under the honeycomb Of their dreams, the hived station Where trains, faithful to their steel arcs, Leave and arrive, and there is no end to the country.

MA:46 - cloud factories

This is an "ambient" song with lots of abuse of delay and reverb, but I made an effort to give it more structure than your typical formless synth-gasm.

Ohming

In what distant deeps or skies Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand dare seize the fire?

An improvised minimal techno song I made last night using a Gameboy and delay pedal, it has been cut down from the original 30 minutes to a slender 7 minutes. Enjoi!

Flutetronica

An ambient-ish piece composed entirely of processed flute samples. I go by the name Tx-Rx for the electronica type stuff I do occasionally 'cos, you know, it's fun to have multiple musical personae.

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.

SkyTrain

A sketch of a sunny, bouncy ambient-ish track I Fruitylooped a month or so ago. I may actually completely rewrite it, or something similar, now I have access to a Jupiter 8, and can take my Boards Of Canada / Kraftwerk thieveries to more convincing levels....
