Bushy Tails

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]

Can I Register Online Please?

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.

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.

Troll's Theme Song

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.

Neon Night Drive

Life can be more like a video game if you take everyday scenarios and add a silly soundtrack (SYTL)

this is why

More of a slow-building groove than a "song." Probably recorded about 10 years ago, I honestly can't remember. [more inside]

Free Refills 2011

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]

a strange and mysterious adventure

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]

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]

Middle of the Road

A little pop/rock instrumental. I'll probably get around to doing a version with vocals someday.

Phantom West - Intercept

Electronic. A bit dancey. An exercise in using an arpeggiator for the bass line and gradual build-up over the course of the track.

Giovanni Battista Cybo

Meet the inappropriately-named Pope Innocent VIII. Witch hunter. Innovator in the field of immolation. Simonist. Slave regifter. And don't forget about his army of bastard children placed the Vatican on the brink of financial ruin. [more inside]

Pietro Barbo

Paul II was a poster child (or grand-nephew) of papal nepotism. This fellow made it more difficult to downsize church government because of his tendancy to appoint new cardinals in private. Oh yeah, he also loved bling and some accounts cite his fatal heart attack happening whilst being sodomized by his boy lover. [more inside]

Alfonso de Borja

You probably knew him better as Pope Callixtus III. His legacy, aside from his advanced age, feebleness and incompetence, is marked by a widely-spread (and patently false) rumor that he successfully exorcised Halley's Comet in 1456. [more inside]
