Post-rock always seems embedded with the sense that something is dire; however, shake it up a bit to get a kind of post-rock indie shoegaze vinaigrette and Sounds of Sputnik is likely what you would come up with. This is Ambiguous Sense of the Future.
"Titry" translates into English as "credits", as in for a film. It was inspired by the idea that this would make a great intro or outro song for the listing of film credits, whether or not we actually decided to pitch the song for that purpose. Maybe we will one day :)
Soundscapes are part of the fabric for various genres of music and this song creates one merging several genres, yet is still hard to put your finger on.
Inspired by the great man himself - J.S. Bach - this song presents a modern interpretation, stemming into interpretation, of this great piece. By Ummagma [more inside]
The shoegaze scene is really abuzz this year with so much good music out there, the new MBV album and Medicine's reunion. This song vibes in this same department - it's an instrumental with lots of reverb. What do you think of this track?
Here I attempted to make a piece that tells a kind of story. I'm pretty pleased with this one, though it definitely sounds at its best played through actual speakers. If you're listening to this on a laptop or through headphones it's a bit anodyne. [more inside]
Short, jazzy instrumental song. Just two parts that felt right together. The song is named after the final chord. And STTNG. [more inside]
Past Lives: I. Where's Judi? II. Bitch Vicki III. Getting Past Nobody
So I was reviewing my song posting history and realized most of my stuff is kind grim. Thought it would be fun to try something a little happier. [more inside]
A semi-instrumental song given a second life after a decade in the demo wilderness. [more inside]
Out-tyrannizes; formularizes josef gospel.
Just some instrumental rock I've had kicking around for awhile. Not much to it.
Practicing writing with legato patches on LASS. A sappy cue for a nostalgiac movie scene. [more inside]
first bit of my late-start album month album
Something about bridges or something [more inside]
Chip tunes + samples instrumental for fun. [more inside]
I've always liked how for a time, rather than having something play over the PA, Sepultura had their own intro that they stood in the dark playing as the lights came up. I think of this as my own intro and have been using it to pump myself up for various onerous tasks today.
another stab at the July/Aug challenge. [more inside]
Short, fun and bouncy, melodic, dancelike-although-odd-metered, all electronic instrumental. Sort of like a lobotomized Dream Theatre interpreted via Kitsune2 would be one way of putting it. [more inside]
This is a instrumental Hip-Hop song made with ableton live. It is part of a mixtape that can be listened to and downloaded at .
Electronic instrumental, 80's style arpeggio, loud bass and an extremely simple melody. [more inside]
just a instrumental thing I did while trying out some new software.
This started as a little tune I made up a couple years when I was trying to register for classes at my community college using their online system which wasn't working. All the parts on this track were recorded by me using my friend Ian's microKORG XL.
Tried my hand at pulpy instrumental rock. [more inside]
Another Improvisational thing from my new band Carbon 7. This one's a bit long, at 19 minutes. [more inside]
This just sort of happened.

Four bass tracks, recorded on 4-track cassette in the mid-80's. Made on a dark evening, home alone. [more inside]
I've been trying to write a new track every day. This is today's effort: an attempt at cheesy synth instrumentals. [more inside]
An instrumental on an electric guitar tuned BABBBB. Features bowed electric guitar, as well. Was listening to a lot of the band Beach House at the time.
Originally titled Möbius Madness, this recursive ditty has been repurposed for the January Challenge. Truncated from its original length of 26 minutes to meet the 10MB size restriction, Troll's Theme Song is meant to demoralize the listener; it may cause confusion, insanity, and bleeding of the ears.

Life can be more like a video game if you take everyday scenarios and add a silly soundtrack (SYTL)
More of a slow-building groove than a "song." Probably recorded about 10 years ago, I honestly can't remember. [more inside]
A slower reworking of a track I made in the late 90s when I was the beat maker for a hip hop group. The song never got made. [more inside]
OK we're gonna do this. My old shit. [more inside]
This instrumental track was originally named "Em wrong" because it came out of absentmindedly playing my guitar while watching tv and accidentally strumming an E minor chord incorrectly on the 3rd fret. The resulting song has an uneasy, mysterious vibe. [more inside]
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]
A riffy instrumental I recorded a long time ago on a cassette 4-track.
A little pop/rock instrumental. I'll probably get around to doing a version with vocals someday.
Electronic. A bit dancey. An exercise in using an arpeggiator for the bass line and gradual build-up over the course of the track.
A concise instrumental fantasy. [more inside]
More music for deep space, take your protein pill and put your helmet on. [more inside]
A little rough, a little raw. Just a little old-time blues instrumental.
Just a quick little doodle from this year's RPM Challenge album. And, yes, this is my first MeFi post. Be gentle.
