When the Curtains of Night

I'm happy to present my collaboration with not_on_display: this is our version of a neat little tune that was included in The American Songbag (a 1927 folk song collection by Carl Sandburg); the song there was itself derived from a late 19th-century song by William S. Hays. [more inside]

Sleepwalker (Cover)

"Maybe I could be the one they adore—that could be my reputation." I had The Wallflowers' "Sleepwalker" in my head earlier and decided to learn the chords and record it. [more inside]

Interesting Times

Written because I am finally starting to get back into recording stuff, and I needed to give myself a simple project to stretch my muscles. So I told myself to write a Stereolab song circa 1994. I haven't listened to Stereolab for few years. Now That I've recorded this, I'm gonna go back and listen to them.

So I'm taking a Sound Arts class at school - and since I'm the only person who signed up for it, it's become just me and my instructor mucking about on Garageband. This is my third creation, and first song; I provide the words and vocals, and Apple provided the music. [more inside]

Dust Samples

Back on the horse! Here's a song I wrote and recorded tonight. The idea was a laid-back, french café sort of sounding tune. It's about interstellar exploration. [more inside]

Saint and Kings - Stop Time

Fake-jazz ballad, slightly prurient and hopefully neither too explicit nor plaintive: use only as directed [more inside]

A very short experiement using loops and drum tracks and stuff. Was in two minds whether to post this, the original, or the slowed down version. To be honest there was only 20 seconds in the difference. I think this version has a bit more energy.

Ok, it's not that great, but it is the first song where I didn't use any premade loops. It may be bad, but it's all my own work. The song title was just me being contrary.

Man Was Created (And Quite Frankly, Some of Us Are a Little Embarrassed by the Concept)

Recorded live in 2004 by my high school garage band (though we were in my living room [better acoustics] for this take). I'm on the drums. Sound quality is courtesy of my drum teacher and his equipment. Instrumental. (Hear that pause during the chorus? Yeah, MY IDEA). (Download for best quality) [more inside]

Pink Saturday

The horns in this bouncy lo-fi surf-garage number? Synthesized. But the off-key backup vocals? They're real.

My Money's Worth In Blood

So, I've been experimenting with writing and recording pop music - currently in my bedroom with garageband. I'm an amateur. I may have gotten a little effect happy on this one. But hey, it's a start. [more inside]
