Mixed Up Zombie

93 Studios' 20-weirdest-zombie-movies-ever-made list (via Large Hearted Boy's tweet) cracked my skull. [more inside]

Springtime, All At Once

Full title: "Everything Was Going Fine Until Someone Dared Springtime to Happen All at Once." From the album In Lieu of Talent. Maybe a nice way to kick off a Friday. [more inside]

Femme Fatale (VN+U Cover)

Just getting this under the wire for July's music challenge; it's not quite August 1st, at least not where I live. [more inside]

Elemental Fire, 2009 version

When I was 12 or 13 or so, I loved to play around with a MOD tracker I'd downloaded. This is a remake of the first real song I wrote using it. [more inside]

Clap Your Hands

A song I made out of depression and boredom. At least, to the extent that I feel editing is depressing and boring. [more inside]

I Was Thinking About You (No Technology)

Do you socialize with dozens? Do you feed-read hundreds, friend thousands, and follow tens of thousands? Do you still get shy one-on-one? [more inside]

Pull Out My Teeth

This is a little composition I did in MIDI some years ago, which I found recently and opened in GarageBand. If anyone is interested in playing it on some real instruments, I'd be happy to provide the original MIDI file, which you could probably print out as sheet music if you are crafty enough.

Where's My Pony (pb)

The Great Big Mulp came up with this, and I wished I'd thought of it first. Then Cortex mentioned this, and I realized I had thought of that one first -- so I stayed up late tonight to beat him to the punch. [more inside]

sedentary

This season found me in the midst of a little personal crisis and I was sitting idly around the house for long hours. Like me at the time, this doesn't travel too far from where it starts. [more inside]

Dewa

Another short Garage Band track that includes the sound of me repeatedly popping the base of an old stock pot in and out.

(Everybody Likes) Internal Mics

Today cortex and Hoopo wrote, recorded and posted quick songs done with their Mac's internal microphone and GarageBand, a couple of hours apart. I've decided to make it a trifecta. [more inside]

Ima

A short, sloppy no-editing-or-do-overs track made in less than half an hour with Garage Band, 2 glasses of stale water on my coffee table, a dirty spoon, a jar of change, internal mic, and likely one drink too many.

Undercover

Recorded this song last night. It's a new direction, sort of. Unplugged electric bass, acoustic guitar, vocals. 7/4 but unusual rhythm work. I like it, hope you do.

cc'ed

Another acoustic, instrumental tune. This is the first track I've made in GarageBand (my Ubuntu machine died hard last week).

I Will Make You Understand

Just a little Garageband thing. I've had that spoken loop forever, anyone know where it comes from?

Hopin' for the...

A beat I made in Garageband featuring trombone. All the music parts are loops of me, on keyboard, trombone, and bass. The scratching is Mic Santi, my roommate.

Some Other Boy/Girl

Wherein I discover you can lyrically abstract and obscurely rearrange an interpersonal situation, but you can't make it blink. [more inside]

As kids

A short instrumental, played over an old tape of me reading something in French as a kid. [more inside]

Pocket Venus

A not-so-tall song about a short, sweet object of desire. Wait, can I try that again? [more inside]

King Kong Song

This is the second song I wrote when I started learning the guitar in February. This was when I could not sing as I played guitar unless I sang one syllable per strum. Starts slow, but the second half is kind of fun so don't give up right away. [more inside]

I Overshot You (Demo)

This one is probably about reiterated obviousnesses and vain hopes regarding poorly plotted relationship trajectories, but what do I know, I just wrote and sung it. Oh, and the guitar tuning was EADGBD, capoed to the fourth fret. [more inside]

Second Ring

Wherein I discover writing a song about kissing off an ex is easier and more satisfying than kissing off an ex.

Can't It Be True

I arranged this simple version of a song from a Linda Ronstadt compilation for a play at the request of the director. 3 acoustic guitars an synth drums, all done in Garageband.

Fumble

Part 2 of my extended musical apology to mathowie. I have to earn my return.

Sinaloan Milk Snake Song

A lo-fi cover of a lo-fi song by the Mountain Goats, from Zopilote Machine. Made in GarageBand, vocals recorded with built-in mike. I'm brand-new at this, so I welcome technical advice about how the mixing, recording, use of loops, etc. can be improved.

Puter Puter

OK, this is not the greatest composition of all time but I do want to share my (surely unoriginal) observation that if you have a baby and a Mac it's really fun to cut up clips of the baby talking and put it over a loop. Grandparents like this. All suggestions for how to do this kind of thing better are most welcome -- I've only been using GarageBand for about a week.

MetroMental

Another song from my concept CD that has been long in the making. This one was inspired by riding Washington, DC's Metro system to and from work every day.

Down with the Tempo

Alright. I used to think using GarageBand (and its loops) to make songs was "cheating". Then I started to use it. It's amazing how fun and easy it is, and you can really create some great sounding music. Here is my first downtempo song, entitled "Down with the Tempo". Enjoy!

The crazy stories

Basically two songs merged together that had the same open C tuning. It involves banging on the desk and clinking a glass.

Outta My Way

One of my first attempts with GarageBand. "Outta My Way" is the title song of what I envisioned would be an "album" chronicling my decision to move from Washington, DC to rural Vermont. This particular song was intended to be about my work day.

Transcelestial Unification

Started out as a shakedown cruise/tone demo for my PRS McCarty Brazilian, but it turned into a pensée on loose women from other galaxies, as all my songs seem to. Samuel Johnson's horse applies.
