Transcontinental Airway

Another IDM travelogue inspired by the remote land arrows of the Transcontinental Airway System. Music for dancing, thinking, or especially (if you have the means) driving.

Haunted Weather

I've spent an agonizing 11 days dialing this one to perfection. Another bumper that hearkens back to my high school days, when a song couldn't possibly have enough rhythm tracks. Suitable for all your living-room silent discos.

White Alice

A bit of Four Tet meets '90s house, with a sideways glance to Laurie Anderson. Inspiration. Recorded for my new monthly subscription music project, Faulty Machine Recordings Service.

International Geophysical Year

Not a Donald Fagen cover, alas, but a moody slice of danceable IDM in the early-'90s style. Recorded for my new monthly subscription music project, Faulty Machine Recordings Service.

Fruitbattery

A short piano solo! Minor key, triplet feel, maybe a little jazzy, better suited to Halloween than early spring, but what can I do? It's a free download at BandCamp complete with suitably batty artwork. [more inside]

B'doo Deh Du

Dance-Rock Late-70's-type Instrumental. Maybe if Thin Lizzy and the Talking Heads were commissioned to write the theme song to CHiPs? The only lyrics are "B'doo deh du" and "Bah-Bah-Bah-Bomp!" [more inside]

Metric Groove

From my new (free!) EP 'Part Time Drum Machine', this is an instrumental keyboard-based track driven forward by a cheap synth bass and Casio-ish beats. A different kind of style than you may have heard from me before. [more inside]

Bushy Tails

Short, fun and bouncy, melodic, dancelike-although-odd-metered, all electronic instrumental. Sort of like a lobotomized Dream Theatre interpreted via Kitsune2 would be one way of putting it. [more inside]

Phantom West - Intercept

Electronic. A bit dancey. An exercise in using an arpeggiator for the bass line and gradual build-up over the course of the track.

Neon

Instrumental sort-of-dance track with some electric piano, samples, beats, and synths.

The Nuge

Aka 21 Nugent St., AKA this deadly house in Thunder Bay where we have righteous disco-ball dance parties and bluegrass jams, and where I've been crashing the last few weeks. It's been a treat.

HighSchoolSweethearts

Summertime makeout salad with honey-roasted handclaps, balsamic dance vinagrette and a sprinkle of arpeggiator. [more inside]

MandyDance

This is... baroque electronic dance rock? Well, perhaps. I think it will keep you entertained for 5 minutes, at any rate. There are a lot of things that go whoosh, a thing that goes ping, and rather a lot of things doing things near the end. [more inside]

Divergence

A downtempo dance tune... I think. Yep.

Freedom Tape

A simple, melancholy electro instrumental that I recorded a couple of years ago. Percussion ideas came from various hip-hop sources; the melody is my own. I use it as background music during a spoken-word segment of my live shows. [more inside]

1982

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!

808 Guilty Spark

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!
