Glitchy, semi-improvised piece with disjointed synths and samples.

what goes on in those dark rooms

Six layers of sound, created completely from scratch in the Operator soft synth, sent through a filter delayed return track

Trust (v2)

A polished up, broken down, mangled, different version of the song I posted a few days ago, and this time it's kind of complete. Criticism welcome & encouraged!

phasic

Patterns playing across each other. Introspection sliding into dreamy psychosis, never quite waking.

Thanks for the Add (demo)

A dancey pop kinda thing. I finished all the recording and rough mixes for my next album so I'm starting to enjoy making music again. Also: trying to be less of a perfectionist so I maybe don't go bonkers.

Undercurrent

I found an entry-level Yamaha synth in my friend's basement. The dials were stuck on 80's. [more inside]

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]

ripples

Only tangentially related to the theme of the challenge, but my testing audience thought the song sounded like ripples, and that seemed like enough (plus it motivated me to finish sooner than I might have!).

I Like Hat

Acapella sample, killer synth, creepy fembot vocals. A song about hats.

American Dreams

Mix Master Mike frequently samples the intro to Killing In The Name for his sets. I decided to sample the outro, where Zach de la Rocha is yelling "ALL OF WHICH ARE AMERICAN DREAMS". The bass line is spliced out of Evil by Interpol since Carlos Dengler has got some crazy tone. This is a pretty slow jam, so it borders on the line between hip-hop and dance. Enjoy.

Ten Thousand Waves

An electronic track I did in my room at Ten Thousand Waves, outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. Influences include Boards of Canada, Nathan Fake, and a little Aphex Twin. There's a longer description here.

Oscillendulum 1

This is one of a series of short pieces (about 10 or 12) I recorded using only a JUNO 60 analog synth (found at a Tokyo junk shop for only 10,000 yen!). The Oscillendulums all share a similar structure (gradual addition and/or subtraction of layered repeating parts), with an eye toward the creation of a sort of liquid polyrhythm. I also had in mind the musical approximation of animal sounds such as frog and insect choruses from a pond, which are part of the inspiration for this series.

Long Night and Nothing to Do

I wrote this song in one night for a school assignment that was due the next day. The music was really just flowing out of me. I don't even remember writing most of this because I was so tired. It was created to be a score for a 9-minute short film that I made, but it's grown on me so much that I've decided to include it on my first album. It does need some work, though: the mixing is way off in some areas (and even distorted) and it's way too long to include on an album.

Take Me There

If I was to describe this song with sarcastic overtones, I would say this is a regular run-of-the-mill ageispolis techno song. Well, it's not. This song is anything but typical of what I usually produce. Vocals, emotion, melody, structure... christ, what's gotten into me!?

Glow

I made this song last summer (2006). It has the usual synth and drum machine, as well as the addition of a little guitar. Very fast-paced, yet relaxed. Oh, and, of course, it'll someday (maybe) have lyrics.

Aware

Very atmospheric. This song will always remind me Christmas, as I wrote most of it during the month of December. Just like my previous track, this will also have vocals someday.

Unknown

One of the better songs I have lined up for my first album (which is still in its early stages). Heavy drums, synth, happiness. Also, this is my first post to MeFi Music.

The Reddish Egret

Egret's (of the Reddish variety) are musically inspiring. This track is divided by two tempo changes (see if you can spot them!) and is thus in three parts. I figure a bird as cool as the Reddish Egret deserves a musical trilogy. Also, the high-pitched vocal sample is actually a rendering of the last note Thom Yorke sings on the opening track of The Eraser.

Before It Dies

Here is a "Mahayana Jazz" track with some tasty drums. I hope you find this delicious and remember to get away from that tree before it dies.

2012 Overture

Inspired by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture", I constructed a beginning synth composition and then borrowed the climatic final progression for the conclusion of my piece.

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!
