Yep, I prefer just "novocaine" for this jaunty little cover tune I did from Green Day's "American Idiot." Well maybe not jaunty, exactly. [more inside]

electronic dance pop thing - another one recorded in same 6 mo period as "when your lover has gone" (prev post), this one was sorta more where I was at stylistically at the time. Utilizes killer slowed-down Prince sample from 'my name is prince' to chug throughout, periodically sprinkled with horn samples from Bernstein's "Prelude, Fugue and Riffs" as well as some other stuff (kronos quartet?). Not entirely sure about the recording process here, but it also went to ADAT, and I think I used a boss dr rhythm for the main hat. The string sound was from my poor old ensoniq VFX... it freaked out all the time for no apparent reason, but man that poly-key pressure is STILL the best system to date for emotive midi controllering. I don't know why nobody else seems to have it in their boards.

Finally, not sure what I was thinking with the wacky instructional tape sample at the very beginning, nor the instrumental breakdown at the end, but here ya go.

when your lover has gone

Ok I didn't write this. It is my cover of a jazz standard written by einar a. swan... the version I was sorta aping was a version recorded by Billie Holiday. I tried to give it an En Vogue "Giving Him Something He Can Feel" vibe, but er, that didn't exactly happen. I recorded this 12? years ago, as a joke since I had no experience singing any jazz tune whatsoever, and this is what came out. Note the thoroughly consistent out-of-tune Zeta-bass part (my bass guy could not play that thing properly since he never had any real fretless training), and conversely, his killer bass solo, in which he duplicates the original guitar? Horn? solo from the Holiday track. I think that was a PRS, I forget. recorded to the original ADAT, I think, synced to a 25mhz At&t P1 laptop w/4mb of ram and the original non-audio Logic midi sequencer... I also played the clarinet and sax parts, brushed snare & cymbals, my buddy Errol tossed out the acoustic guitar licks. used by austin's Realm Dance Project in 2003 for one of their goofy nyc Fringe Festival pieces. More of what I do currently here at: ! the edison carter project !

prince wrote "nothing compares 2 u", and I wrote this. Sorry I missed V-day. Stylistically, let's call it something like: male fiona apple vs. ben folds in bed with my grainy-ass drum loop. Did I mention there's more here? { the edison carter project } 'become a fan' there, won't you? e!

More like the foos this time, mixed with some proggy Muse-like stuff, but with stronger vox than Mr. Grohl, I think (except perhaps for that bridge in Monkey Wrench). I decided to write a blistering rock tune.... - from my grandfather's perspective, about my grandmother having an Alzheimer's-like disease, which she developed, possibly, as a result of post-polio syndrome. I know, weepy description, but trust me it sounds not so. more here, true believers: > the edison carter project <
