A new synth program still in progress at the time. I hit 'record' only to consider various knob twiddlings, instead it turned out to be a complete solo. [more inside]
Tension-laden synth piece with analog elements. Expect ticking time-bombs, paranoid running at night, and an unseen enemy catching up with you.
Some more Philip Glass-inspired electronica while waiting for the RPM Challenge to start.
Instrumental; checking out what my new Axiom 61 can do with Logic. [more inside]
This little slice of asymmetrical electronica with vocal is from the first Skist CD, released in 2002 and entitled Ellipsis. I recently made a video to accompany the song, viewable at YouTube. [more inside]
Experimental Industrial Electro-House with a humble IDM Rock background. [more inside]
A little robot dreams of world domination.
A fantastic piece of symphonic music with deep connections to electronica, joe's last mix by Tanner Menard is a fun ride (this performance is by one of my ensembles with me conducting). I've posted this before, but he and I are doing something different with the piece, and I'm wondering if any of you are interested in participating.... [more inside]
Glitchy, build-upy piano-lead electronica track I made in Buzz Tracker a few years ago. [more inside]
Everyone's afraid of falling inside. Especially so when alone. Instrumental, post-apocalyptic, cthulhutronica. [more inside]
Plankton also hunts for love. Instrumental sample-tronica. [more inside]
An instrumental song by my band Clark 8 remixed using Jason Forrest's star6 iPhone app. Rock meets breakcore and everybody gets glitched up. [more inside]
An electronic piece, part of a larger composition that I wrote to help myself fall asleep at night (or at nap time). Hope you enjoy it. [more inside]
Originally planned as a mix between 70's J.M. Jarre and Steve Reich. Turns out to be more like Giorgio Moroder teaming with Tangerine Dream, on a bad day. [more inside]
bouncy and better than dark chocolate.....from a new band called seratone n. [more inside]
Inspired by a friend's photos of the ocean.
Easy, nostalgic, cinematic electronica. The challenging part was getting the robots to sing - not too mechanically, but not too uncannily either.
Something a bit shorter and more polished with the Korg DS-10 Nintendo DS synth.
in which we discuss sente, and determine that all of the engines are on fire, the body of the aircraft is on fire, the fucking air around us is on fire.
an instrumental space jam, an ode to a scintillating satellite girl, and because we miss kurt so.
This ear-piercing ambient piece was made in 2003, part of a release called Ultraviolet. I was listening to a lot of Terre Thaemlitz at the time, particularly Soil.
I put this ambient track together back in 2003 during one of many sleepless nights, as part of a larger release called Threads. After listening to it again, I liked its hypnotic lull enough to want to share it here, and I hope it rewards your patience.
In the desert, turn toward emptiness; fleeing the self.
Thine age asks ease, and since thy duties be To warm the world, that's done in warming us. Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere; This bed thy centre is, these walls, thy sphere.
An upbeat synthy breaksy tune. The final version of what previously sounded like this, but with samples stripped out for a cleaner effect.
Found on the same CD as the last tune I uploaded, this is a forgotten remix to what I guess is one of my main tunes (I'll upload that later by way of comparison). I actually prefer this version now, though the strings at the end are laid on a bit thick.
Found this on an old CD, but it's about as good as anything else I've done so I'm sticking it out there. A simple, upbeat jungle-technoy thing with layered breakbeats and a nasty synth lead dominating the second half.
A downtempo dance tune... I think. Yep.
1. of or pertaining to the mind. 2. originating in or apprehended by the reason. The first completed track of a new Lestrade collection called Flights of Theory.
A song for the killer robots to march to, mixed haphazardly [more inside]
no dragons were harmed in the making of this song, in which we revert to our default full on trip hop status.
cranked this one out today...going to be part of my first demo ep under the name "neon zoo", later I plan on adding vocals.
A piece about trying to find solitude in a busy world. No lyrics, but I like the juxtaposition of the acoustic (piano, strings) and the electric (drums, pads). [more inside]
After switching from Propellerheads's Reason to Apple's Logic Studio, I went looking for interesting loops and found these. [more inside]
A hip-hoppy electronica track intended to give you that Chronotriggery feeling. (It only works if you turn it up.) [more inside]
Sketch of a more up-tempo house remix for a down-tempo vocal track. Chance to play with a few new plug-ins. [more inside]
This is a live and remixed version of an older track of mine done under the DXM moniker. [more inside]
This is a remix of Coldcut's True Skool featuring Roots Manuva that I did for a remix competition a while ago. [more inside]
A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]
Ambient, experimental electronica designed to evoke a dawn over a toxic waste dump, or something. [more inside]
sexy parseltongues seek to seduce snape, spells abound.
Some more noodling with Live and Reason. Brooding percussion and bright leads. I'm happy with the results but it needs a better title. Feedback appreciated.
This is an old-ish one from when I was first learning Cubase and Reason. Ambient-ish electronic type stuff!
I haven't posted here in a while, but I have created a new song. It's bright, optimistic and atmospheric.
4th song for my rpm project
I made this one a couple of years ago. Quite catchy and cheerful, gets a bit stupid near the end (to put it mildly).
in where I try and fail to make something along the lines of boards-of-canada or aphex twin's SAW2... but it's still the only tune I've ever completed that I actually like.
A sad tune about a sad time, with a bit of hope thrown in.
