Winter Morning

Slow, melodic piece I wrote for a friend of mine to give them something to chill out to - similar in style to all my previous pieces (except the electric guitar ones obviously)

Lullaby

Recorded in two parts, its a soothing slow piece. Not overly long or complex. It got its name as when I came up with the first guitar line, someone fell asleep while listening.

Irish Waltz

My one and only piece in 3/4 time - another instrumental guitar piece, this one moves along at a lively speed. I came up with it while visiting Ireland, hence the name.

Mollymook

My family used to take holidays down in Mollymook, and I came up with this one while there. The mood of the piece reflects the mood I was in, its relaxed, slow and languid. Hope it takes you there.

Harsh

Instrumental guitar piece, played on my classical guitar but might be suited to an electric guitar. I wanted to see if I could pull off a rocky sounding piece on a nylon string guitar. As always, hope its enjoyed by all

Harpy Go Lurky

A quick, light-spirited, no-frills guitar/banjo instrumental.

Cloudy Day

Relaxing, slow but intricate instrumental piece played on my classical guitar. I can play this and just totally zone out for ages. Hope you enjoy zoning out to it.

East of the Middle

Stylistically I'm not sure where this piece sits, the opening scale is a little Middle Eastern (deliberately) but the rest of the piece ... well have a listen and see what you think. I always intended to record a lead guitar over the top (but never got around to doing it...), so its a little repetitive in the middle section.

Eleven-Nine

Slow relaxing instrumental guitar piece I recorded some time ago, sounds deceptively easy to play :) One of my longer pieces at nearly 4 minutes.

Hectic

Fast moving piece performed on my classical guitar - I think I'd had too much caffiene when I came up with this one, its short, fast moving, and hectic (as the name suggests).

New Melancholy

Recorded in three parts, on my classical guitar. Theres some dissonance in the melody, its reasonably polyphonic in sections, I was experimenting and I'm not 100% sure it works, but the tune sticks in my head after I've heard it. Hope the dissonance doesn't make too many people wince, and its enjoyed by all.

Lost in the Desert

A lengthy (slightly self indulgent) electric guitar piece, I've performed it live with drums and bass but this is recorded just with guitars. Its quite rocky, especially half way through the piece. Bit of a change of pace from my previous postings, hope everyone likes what they hear. If anyone wants to record some drums for it I'd be happy to hear it!

Can I play flamenco?

Second in the "Can I play" series... I'm not formally trained in flamenco in any way shape or form, and listening to professional flamenco players and then this reveals that I can't play flamenco. But I did want to call it Faux Flamenco so I guess it sits in that style well enough. In fact its really bad - since I use a pick in the first section! In my defence, I don't have nails. It starts out slow but ramps up dramatically later on.

Leaving

Classical guitar instrumental, written while thinking about the loss of a long time friend, which was a bittersweet moment. Its in a major key, with a bit of a melancholy feel to it.

Clowning Around

A little upbeat piece I came up with one day mucking around with some friends - not the greatest recording quality, the microphone I used was actually one of those headsets that I clamped over the guitar. Still its one of my favourites, hope everyone gets into it.

Sin Ti

I went through a phase of naming my pieces in Spanish as I always find it hard to come up with names for instrumental pieces - its still just as trite as in English but it makes me feel better. Anyway this is a slow relaxing instrumental guitar piece.

Cover - Book of Love - Peter Gabriel

This is an instrumental cover of The Book of Love by Peter Gabriel - I think this originally appeared at the end of a movie starring J Lo and Richard Gere called Shall We Dance Recorded for a friends wedding for the bride to walk down the aisle to. Hope its enjoyed by all

Laid Back

Came up with this on a Sunday afternoon, after a long sleep in and a greasy breakfast. Short, instrumental guitar piece like the rest I've posted :)

Beginnings

Another laid back instrumental guitar piece performed on my classical guitar. One of my favourites, though I possible went a little overboard with the compression. Hope its enjoyed by all.

Chupacabra

Another track from my last-minute RPM Challenge entry, "The Very Best of Spaz Rock - Volume I: Monsters of Spaz." Kind of a laid back, funky/clunky little number with soothing moments. [more inside]

Enigma

Instrumental piece on a classical guitar, recorded with two parts. Kind of slow, relaxing, and was an attempt to make slight harmonic clashes easier on the ear. Don't worry, its not twelve tone serialism or anything!

Bega

I came up with this little ditty when on a road trip to Bega, a country area of New South Wales, Australia. Its a quick, bright instrumental piece, played on my classical guitar.

El Magia

Ibot Ubot Robot Nobot (Mighty Stealthy mix)

Found on the same CD as the last tune I uploaded, this is a forgotten remix to what I guess is one of my main tunes (I'll upload that later by way of comparison). I actually prefer this version now, though the strings at the end are laid on a bit thick.

Divergence

A downtempo dance tune... I think. Yep.

Nagasaki

I was flipping through an old binder of songs I wrote in high school and came across this instrumental. I saw some potential there and decided to record it. Twenty years ago, it was supposed to be a fusion thing, along the lines of Hiroshima. I opted for something a bit harder instead.

Demented Children's Songs

A nightmarish take on children's music. I always imagine myself stuck in a carnival funhouse being chased around by evil clowns when I listen to this. From 1995 and one of the first songs I ever wrote. Some completely out of control layering towards the end! [more inside]

Vignette 2

A quick 'n' dirty instrumental with some mute-picking that sort of sounds like violin plucking. But isn't. [more inside]

Apfel Augen

This is an instrumental, and the "biggest" song I've ever tried to record. It has some really nice vocals by Leah Wilmoth (who sang in my last upload), and a CACGBC tuned guitar. Also a banjolele. I haven't heard it on speakers, yet. I would love to hear any thoughts on this piece. [more inside]

Japonisme (1)

I took an old 45rpm of a Japanese folk song and started dropping the needle. Took those bits, sliced 'em up and moved 'em around a little, then added some synth and electric piano, some udu and guiro. Et voila! Le Japonisme!

Orbital Eccentricities

In an attempt to branch out a bit, I made this song entirely on the keyboard. Most of my songs are pretty sample-heavy but this one has almost no samples at all, just the drum loop, which is severely cut up and re-arranged. A good song to listen to when cruising in orbit in your spaceship.

butterflies

I just came up with this and recorded it on the H2 (I upped the volume a bit in Audition afterward). I'm pretty bad at finger picking and this owes a lot to John Fahey and Roy Harper. Not that they're bad at finger picking.... There's a faster and shorter version as well, but I liked the drone of this one more.

Rob da Bank played this on his Radio 1 show in 2005, so it's my most successful track by a factor of about 1,000,000. I hope you like it.

Grendel

Sort of strived for emotional content with this one. If the first part is asking questions, the second is not liking the answers.
