This Song Was About Crying

It's a snow day here in Wisconsin and that means that the kid and I are recording. This one is 5 tracks of kid vocals -- sort of a nonverbal impressionistic vibe this time -- with some canned drums and synth. And some crying at the end.

3753 cruithne

Continuing with my beat-oriented theme of late. Autechre-like, but they're still 1,000 times better than I am. This one's noisy and glitchy, just the way I like it.

Immortal Jellyfish

The second effort for this year's RPM Challenge from my experimental, noisy super-happy-fun project, "The Very Best of Spaz." Like its ocean dwelling namesake, this Immortal Jellyfish always manages to revert to its juvenile form. [more inside]

Bloom

This is a short IDM-esque style electronic piece written in the fall of 2008. I was largely inspired by the idea of Klangfarben melodie, and tried to incorporate a lot of tone colors in the piece, especially by experimenting with modulating the LFO rates of the synthesizers to different degrees to create many different "colors" of the same basic sound [more inside]

The Story of The Man Who Didn't Do Something

"This is a story of a man who sat at home all day and did absolutely nothing." Our improv group is at it again, this time adding a DS-10 and an old electronic organ's rhythmic presets into the mix. 22 minutes in length.

Omega Sunsets

This comes from the archives (dating back to 1999 or thereabouts), the heavily edited highlights of a long and extremely abstract jam. I produced it and I'm pretty sure I blew into some kind of flute like instrument at some point or other. Apparently there's versions of it floating around out there credited to both LSD49 and Slow Fallout.

leave the earth behind you

Some experimental ambient textures and layering. Contains samples from Hulk Hogan & The Wrestling Boot Band, Unique Ason, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Björk, Four Tet, Morgan Freeman, and Busy P. Also some sampling of dirty audio jacks. Title from Fadhil al-Azzawi (Iraqi Poetry Today).

404

And now for something completely different... this is a somewhat experimental instrumental track featuring pulsing soft noise, soft organs and a distorted xylophone, fake sitar, and off-key distant "singing."

in memories

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]
