The first track I've finished in a project of doing ska covers of The Band songs [more inside]
A campy, '60s-superhero-show theme for a video game I recently scored! [more inside]
Smooooth, sloooow reggae featuring a dreamy brass/ebow instrumental break, "sensitive" percussion, a falsetto bridge, and a sweet guitar solo at the end. [more inside]
This is the lead-off track from The Flood, the new album by Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies, released today. [more inside]
"July" is the promo single from the upcoming Steve Goldberg and the Arch Enemies EP. "July" is the feel-good song of the month, if not the century. "July" is a tale of love, summertime, and ephemeral youth, told in the timeless language of pop music. [more inside]
It's Valentine's Day, and I wanted to do a song about fighting against heartbreak. Naturally, I could not resist The Temptations. [more inside]
Poppy-ska song I wrote a couple years ago about being afraid to ask a girl out. (I did, eventually, but not in the song). [more inside]
Just a little carol we recorded for our holiday card. roll truck roll on dulcimer, firemonkey on trumpet and horn. [more inside]
Movement 2 of a 3 movement work for brass, percussion, and radio. [more inside]
A drinking song, New Orleans-style. [more inside]
Am Irish-styled song about a girl for a brass quartet, harmonica, and a big bass drum. [more inside]
Just having fun really. [more inside]
Everybody driving by my window the last three weeks has been blasting Michael Jackson, I couldn't help myself. Maybe got a bit carried away. Many apologies to James Jamerson. [more inside]
Although the song says the distinction is irrelevant, this is definitely the BROKEN hallelujah. [more inside]
For the Spy Music Challenge, an almost-straight rip from what everyone hears in their heads when they stand in front of a mirror in a tuxedo. A little repetitive, but I was going for production values, so imagine this as a background piece to intro credits. [more inside]
Experimental electroclassical hip-hop track. First one to name the classical piece I lifted for my main brass sample gets a lollipop. (Hint, I play it in entirety in incredibly high-pitched, fast motion near the end of the track).
Another Christmas nugget from the Sovereign Brass. Just as in Sweet Chiming Bells and Deck the Halls, I played the tuba and arranged the music.
Another Christmas nugget (see also this post) from Sovereign Brass. Like the other tune, I arranged the music and played tuba.
A great arrangement of a classic tune by the Sovereign Brass, an all-brass quintet, which was an impromptu thing between my friends and I to spread some Christmas cheer and create a few new arrangements of some old chestnuts.
This is a concert march by Robert Jager arranged by me for my brass quintet. Just a march, eh? No, it's in 7/4 in the first strain and 5/4 through most of the rest of it.
