Yes, Dope

This is a little ditty I worked up in Logic, as a sort of self-guided tutorial to building loops, aliases, aligning things to a tempo, and adding & quantizing midi notes. The drums are samples grabbed from an unfinished recording session from the late 80's (played by Dennis Bruhn), and the vocals are snippets from a song by The Whores a long-since broken up post-punk band of mine from the eighties, called Girls on Dope. I have no idea what genre to tag this with.

Neuron

Schitzy, glitzy music from the centre of your CPU.

Coils And Clocks

Whirring, humming, clicking, wheezing dark ambient/glitch, from my new album, Unseen.

random funky

This is less of a song and more of a sketch, but I found it on my drive and I'm going to post it. Much less developed than my other submission. It's more of a half-assed experiment with drum signatures and reverb with some granulation synth stuff tied into the reverb and echoes. Expect little, but it's pretty hypnotic.

Augenfarbe

a somewhat dark, ambient space. deliberately abstract. you tell ME what it means. [for the music geeks: this started as a single wav file (sampled off of a DVD), with multiple loop points (and loop repeat settings), passed through six serial VST/DX effects. All work done in Wavelab 3.0]

Cutmix

An improvised minimal techno song I made last night using a Gameboy and delay pedal, it has been cut down from the original 30 minutes to a slender 7 minutes. Enjoi!

HAARP Fan

This is just a random electronic noodling. It was recorded/performed "live" or mostly realtime - all filter sweeps are live, as are on the fly rhythm and melody edits. The style is inspired by Coil's The Snow EP - very early techno/acid. The melody and synth lines were inspired by the HAARP signal as re-encoded for audible spectrum. This sample also plays in the background for much of the song in various permutations, The rhythm signature was inspired by an old crufty-noisy oscillating desk fan. The timebase for the song was an odd and atypical signature to replicate the random rhythmicness of the noisy desk fan. Warning: For some reason a small subset of people have independently complained of having heart palpitations while listening to this song. Something about the rhythm signature, or perhaps the HAARP sample. *shrug*

One Last Glimpse At That Bright Light (As A Bug Hits The Zapper)

Back in High School, I used to play around using Buzz Machines and FruityLoops and make some electronic music. I haven't been at it in a while, but I'm considering getting back into it. (This time, though, I plan to get a keyboard and not just program it in with mouse clicks.) I'd like to get some opinions on what I have so far, though. Of the few songs from high school I didn't delete, I think this is the strongest. It's... evocative, at least, though I don't really like the percussion.

Absurd Phony Lie (A Boyish Plunder)

I assembled this track for the Sonny Bono is Dead compilation, which looks like it's never going to see the light of day. The title and subtitle are anagrams of the original piece of music which would have fallen into public domain had the Mickey Mouse Protection Act not passed.

sinxitweten

This is an experiment in audio loss. The idea: If you destroy audio with low-bitrate encoding, how far do you have to go before it no longer sounds like a badly encoded song, but something intriguing again? [more info]

Today is Not a Day

From my for-fun band, The Loqol Boiz. When people talk about "experimental music", this is a good example of what they are referring to. The song tells a story -- can you divine it?

Community Noise

Members of the public were invited to bring a non-musical object to a drop-in recording session. We recorded them making a noise with their thing ('things' included carrots, an umbrella, false teeth, keys, photoflash, adding machine, pints of beer), and then the next day I did an improvised gig using only the collected sounds as source material. This is an excerpt from the gig.
