the isolation and confusion of a UK lockdown ...
Dark, ambient, noise, instrumental. Guitars, bass, programmed drums. [more inside]
What's it like when you feel like you're on the flip side from everyone else on the street? A vaporwave exploration of the lo-fi a e s t h e t i c.
Dark ambient "uneasy listening" from my new Bandcamp release, 11 Spells. Software and Eurorack synthesizers.
This one has maybe the most tracks of any song I've ever made. [more inside]
Dancing is for squares. [more inside]
This is sketch I did in MIDI of another instrumental song
A song, or really any artform, can be born from one's happy place, just as it may be born of frustration. It seems these days, that a lot stem from the latter, but this song is notable in that it seeks the former by the end of the song. Doesn't everyone want a light at the end of the tunnel? This is Ummagma 'Kiev' . [more inside]
When a musician, who has self-recorded and mixed everything (brilliant) he (she) has ever put out, eventually takes to creating a remix, the output can be somewhat spectacular. That is what happened when San Francisco shoegaze darkwave wonderkind Jane Woodman jumped into her very first remix for Ummagma 'Lama'. Hope you enjoy the output.
First song off my new EP, strange psychedelic pop, maybe a little scary [more inside]
Just a short little Spacetrancy song...
this is the title track off the first album from a band i've been playing with for a wee while. it's all improvised and recorded live at the bottom of a garden. [more inside]
A dark electronic piece. Resonant bass intro, echoing bells then slightly distorted drums and detuned synths. [more inside]
Experiment in mood... An ominous political speech. [more inside]
Tension-laden synth piece with analog elements. Expect ticking time-bombs, paranoid running at night, and an unseen enemy catching up with you.
Of the songs that my band recorded recently [previously 1 • 2], this is my favorite. It's also the most difficult for us to play. But that's what practice and cheap recording is for, yeah?
A simple, brooding instrumental piece I wrote last year for an independent documentary - on guitar, bass and some samples. [more inside]
Yay, I get to play lead guitar in a band for the first time in 20 years! [more inside]
Something a bit slow, dark, broody and noisy. [more inside]
Dark sounds for an old barn. [more inside]
Some more space music, a little majestic and melodic this time. [more inside]
A dark, drone/noise piece that develops slowly
Extra dark and ominous; uses mostly noise waveforms instead of sine waves
Moody 120bpm synth techno soundtrack, inspired by a car chases at night. Created on the Korg EMX-1 / Kaossilator.
Exceptionally resonant bass channel with two layers of percussion on top [more inside]
Another dark ambient piece; more fun than a farmhouse under seige
Found on the same CD as the last tune I uploaded, this is a forgotten remix to what I guess is one of my main tunes (I'll upload that later by way of comparison). I actually prefer this version now, though the strings at the end are laid on a bit thick.
An ambient noise / drone piece with a dark mood.
Glitchy dark beats, with distorted synth and a little hardcore mixed in. [more inside]
an eclectic downtempo glitchy track of mine from 2006. some interesting live drumming incorporated then destroyed accordingly. comments welcome! [more inside]
My friend Mel and I have started a musical project together, and since Radiohead is our biggest mutual influence, we decided to start by covering one of their songs. [more inside]
Leonard Cohen cover [more inside]
This was one of the first songs that I ever recorded. It has changed some what over the years and still waiting for the work that it needs. It will also be the title track to my CD. It has a dark and erie sound that has said to be influenced by my recreational addiction that I had at the time. I do hope that you will enjoy this contribution to a look that is "IN THE MIND"
True story. Kid owes drug dealers money, so he tells them his aunt is on her way home from cashing her tax refund check. She is gunned down on her porch in front of spouse and kids.
Whirring, humming, clicking, wheezing dark ambient/glitch, from my new album, Unseen.
Dark, absurd, neo-cabaret electronica. I played all the parts and sang on it. From DavidTarleton.com
Spooky beats, sharpened knives, with a madman on that ol' church organ.
A recent recording of a slow and maybe a little creepy song I wrote a couple of years ago. I'm responsible for all vocals and instruments minus the bass, which was recorded by my Scottish buddy Riadsala.
A big machine is rolling up behind you in the dark. Creepy ambience.
