Crystals

It was 1999, I'd just graduated from trackers to fruityloops, and I was listening to a LOT of Warp and Boards Of Canada, and I made this. It's still my favourite, despite being the first tune I ever completed. Tsk.

The Biggie Blues

What do you get when cross Notorious B.I.G, Geeshie Wiley, and a subsonic dnb bass? You get The Biggie Blues my friends.

Quantifyher

I've recently begun a solo-project in the world of IDM and electronic music. I won't advertise/spam my Virb or Myspace accounts unless someone specifically asks for them. Hope you like it!

charlatantrum. - Triomphe de L'Obélisque

Lots of sampling, but I'm so seriously stoked by this piece. You will be, too.

warm day

There was a man with tongue of wood
Who essayed to sing,
And in truth it was lamentable.
But there was one who heard
The clip-clapper of this tongue of wood
And knew what the man
Wished to sing,
And with that the singer was content.

Close Your Eyes

This is a demo that my friend James Burnham and I co-wrote and co-produced last month in Cubase. The harmonies fall apart a little in the end, but I thought it was worth posting. We'll probably re-mix it soon. I'm singing; James programmed. - Tyler Massey

The Wacky Death of Klaxon the Robot

an old track I did as DJ Dial-tone, where I tried to make a decent song using only sound effects.

Flying Moby Attack

A little noisy, a little groovy. It's got breakbeats, wailing guitars and nasty feedback. It reminds me of a cross between Moby and Flying Saucer Attack, hence the name. There are a lot of interesting automation things going on here.

Contentment

This is one of a few IDM tracks I've been working on. I really like the glitchy drumline in this, plus the 3 part melody. I would appreciate any feedback on it, as I feel this is pretty good.

Going back to my roots: Here's a techno-diddley straight outta Air Deutschland.

Family Matters

Do you remember Family Matters? This bump is a remix of the theme song! I find it nostalgic. "Daaaaays goooo byyyyy"

The Jackal

This song is not exactly new (it's only slightly younger than Forwards/Back), but I didn't properly finish recording it until tonight. The levels/panning in a couple places could maybe use a little more tweaking to help everything in the mix stand out, but it's correct enough for now.

Keep Laughing

Another one from the Retrospective. Written when I was 15, I always considered this song to be a more or less blatant ripoff of Lush's “For Love.” The original lyrics were even more painfully awkward than these are, and I was stuck for years on how to improve upon them, but desperation finally took precedence over inspiration: I was literally scribbling them at stop lights on my way to the studio. Not a creative high point, then, but the production is among my sharpest. To their credit, the Science Park line-up of that time made a huge impact.

Ascension Island

In the late '90s, I was the main guy behind an electronic art-pop band called Science Park. After suffering a nervous breakdown in the winter of 2000, I disbanded the group and retreated from the music industry for six arduous years. Now thirty, I've just issued a 15-year retrospective of my life in sound and have re-committed myself to my life's work with a raft of new projects. "Ascension Island" was first issued on a Japanese 7" single on Motorway Records in 2000, and later on my album Disinformation (Obscure-Disk). A tale of love, espionage, and violence always just out of sight, it features my trademark drifting electronics, shortwave radio interceptions, and cool, clean singing. Enjoy.

Breaking The Mecanique (SPRKLTNE mix)

In which I screw up that which was perfect just the way it was.

Time In The Sun

Mostly instrumental. (I'd keep the repeated line, but replace the wordless vocal bit with some horns if I had access to any, and have them carry on through the rest of the song.) Much, much more guitar layering than I usually do. Strangely (?), I think my favorite parts of the song are skittering electronic bits of the drum track and the bass line.

Howard Beale Died For Your Sins

This is off of the RPM Challenge album I sent in yesterday. It takes its title and a bit of its chorus from a Metafilter comment. Per snsranch's request, it includes more of me singing (or at least trying to).

Emma Lane

Another laptop song. I'm not sure I like the vocal melody enough that it will will stick. I didn't really "write" it so much as I made it up on the spot several weeks ago at an open mic just after I'd finished the words (which I do like) and the backing track (which I also quite like). I get the feeling I'll get annoyed with it in six months and go back and make up another melody (which has happened several times before). It's the only song I know of about a thief who steals weather.

Talkin' Atheistic Blues

A song for Franky, his wife who shops at Whole Foods, and their kids who live on YouTube. Above that, a song for George himself. I wrote this back behind enemy lines. The beat was made upon my return and it was recorded the next day.

Apparatchik Waltz

This is probably one of the few times you'll get to hear me "sing" on MeFi. This is another song I wrote for the rpmchallenge, singing, programming it, and playing toy piano on it... I think it's also the first song I ever wrote in 3/4 time.

Feeding the Earworm

Another song I did for the RPM Challenge. In my single-handed attempt to bring video samples back into music, this one uses a sample from an instructional film called "duck and cover"

Forwards/Back

Beep beep beep. The main keyboard line in this song and much of the chord structure started life as a guitar part. This is the first thing I wrote that uses nothing but my laptop. I was watching it snow, and the basic idea(s) for the song just sort of ... popped in there.

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.

The Bright Room

This is essentially a remix of The Dark Room. It's robotic, entrancing, and a little creepy if you play it really loud. The only real quality of this track that holds it to the original is our surprise guest named Flute. And maybe a pad or something. I can't really remember.

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!?

Circling Wolves

The oldest song I've written that I'm still willing to play, think about, work on, etc., etc. It's also changed rather radically from its even shorter original form, and it's gone through a couple lyrical rewrites. It grew a beat about six months ago. I think this is probably the final form structurally and lyrically, but I'd probably work on it more if I thought I could improve the sound quality significantly.

Algorithmic

Written in 1992 (at age 14), for an after-school music theory class, using an iterative algorithm (on paper). Came out far too long - I should have exercised artistic license over the math a bit more. I really like the last twenty seconds, though.

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.

Terracota

As per request, this is the track that immediately follows Au Courant. The speaking is samples from a beat poem by Burroughs and the rhymes are mine. This is one of those songs that you toy with for months before you're happy with it. I am also struggling with the levels so any assistance would be much appreciated! (work-in-progress)

Au Courant

Experimental electroclassical hip-hop track. First one to name the classical piece I lifted for my main brass sample gets a lollipop. (Hint, I play it in entirety in incredibly high-pitched, fast motion near the end of the track).

Cade

I must have had a sad, sad look when she turned to say goodbye, because she tilted her head, raised her hand, touched my face and said: don't worry, we'll be fine. And it was right then when she said it that I realized we were going to be perfectly fine indeed, we were just not going to be together anymore. I went back into my house and wrote this song.

Virtuosi

I made this one today with a tiny low-quality string sample. This particular mix dances between halftime and doubletime throughout. I hope you can dig it.

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.

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.

The Birds Do Thus

An ambient electronic piece I put together a long while back. This is a tonal explication of a Frost poem I love. I felt that his words were perfectly descriptive of my own dissociated days spent in a haze of necessarily indulgent coma, when I should have been out doing other things. I built it on a framework of 32 bar phrases. There was something significant about the numerology of it, but I have since forgotten why. Maybe because it was 2002 and I was born in 1970, or something like that.

Amlie

Something I put together last year on a weekend, barricaded in at home. I was mucking about with my 505 and watching far too much of the 24 hour cable news channels. I never did get around to re-recording it: I wanted to clean up the strained bits of the vocals (I am not a vocalist), and work out a guitar track to add. But that's not going to happen anymore, so here it is in all its novice mysanthropy. Its my 1st MeFiMusix upload, so let me have it.

iLust Your iPod

I stare at you across the lecture hall in Psychology class. Your long, white cord and your smooth rectangular body. If I had to narrow this track down to a particular genre I would have to go with "electro orchestral folk-hop." This beat is a impassioned symphony expressing the desire for iNtimacy in today's society.

I have been composing this piece for quite some time now and I am happy with the current result uploaded here. It's a fun, jazzy, bopping track with overdriven drums, horns, and a surprise guest named "Flute". Enjoy.

Concerta Helps You Concentrate

1. Do you find that at home, work, or school, your mind wanders from tasks that are uninteresting or difficult? 2. Are you always on the go? 3. Do you find it difficult to read written material unless it is interesting or easy to read? 4.Is it hard for you to wait your turn? 5.Is your mind just in a big ol' clutter? Then you obviously need Concerta. It helps you concentrate! This pharmaceutically-inspired technojazz romp reflects my Concerta experiences. (by the way, they are prescribing you SPEED.)
