Made this somewhat experimental ambient-ish piece last night, feeling a tiny bit of hope about the world. It's based on slowed-down samples of a hang-drum, with a keyboard part doing most of the rest. [more inside]
An instrumental arrangement of a minstrel era standard, from Briggs' Banjo Instructor of 1855. Fretless banjo, tambourine, frame drum and bones. [more inside]
Old slow acoustic thing. Live the snare. [more inside]
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]
On electro-acoustic drum kit, with pitch-a-ma-skronked vocal. Video here.
Emotionally stunted sex addict bitches a bit.
For the April "two chords" Challenge. The two 3-note chords even share a note in common, so we're talking a total of five notes serving as harmonic accompaniment for this song. Played on the strumstick. There's a hoop drum, too, of indeterminate pitch. I posted a lo-fi, live version of this song to YouTube as well, direct from my 6-mat tatami room at home. You can see it here.
jazz tune. also, "jazz" tune. [more inside]
Another song on the new keyboard. Basically, the loop is four bridge ('fill') rhythms from the keyboard's analog drum kit, so I figure it's a good enough musical joke to submit it for 'bridge'. Anyway. it's kinda made up as I go (as before, live looping with my baby, and it's louder than my last one and attempts to be less sleepy. Critique welcomed, as always.
Someone gave me a Hammond Audio-Vari drum machine a few Christmases back, I enjoy really simple music so I put this together. It's inspired by a visit to a circus many years ago. I'm glad I've been drunkenly poking around Metafilter tonight, I posted some music on the 'Projects' section weeks ago but this is much more appropriate.
