Asleep at the Knife

Turns out my version of the serenity prayer involves a lot more quantum sci-fi and psycho-killer imagery. Been working on this for a good while, trying to figure out how to program drums for a slow 6/8 time. Pretty happy with how it finally came together, but I'd love some pointers. Still worried it's a bit too saturated, but that's kinda my MO. Lyrics in the fold. [more inside]

Dance Like Everyone's Watching

Carbon 7 - these things just go where they go. From our new release, Operation Fishbowl. This one clocks in at 13 minutes, with a bit of a Latin flair in spots, which is odd for us. [more inside]

The Elevator Clown

From the 12-21-14 Carbon 7 session Inter-Sol-Stice. We went from meeting every couple of months down to 1 or 2 a year, & I fell behind in mixing, so this was somewhat of a forgotten session. A minor epic at 18 minutes, but it holds together. [more inside]

Asteroids

There's a saying that aging is like sailing into an asteroid field, where the asteroids get thicker and thicker until one hits you. This is a song about that. One take everything. Video.

Lullaby

I've been having trouble sleeping lately. This is a brief, improvised lullaby I made the other night to help with that.

Memory in New York

This is a soundtrack that I originally created and produced. It is about the vibes of New York City as a melting pot which is urban, lively and unique. It is in jazz style and I used Logic Pro X.

Puttin' on the Ritz

The Irving Berlin classic. Me fiddling around in a jazzy cover. Multiple vocals, a little guitar, and one persistent shaker. An amalgam of all the ssets of lyrics used since it was originally written. [more inside]

Dream a Little Dream of Me [jazz version]

The American standard by Fabian Andre, Wilbur Schwandt, and Gus Kahn. This is my jazzy little version. Started with some noodling and became a proper song. And very easily inspired by the version by Mama Cass Elliott. [more inside]

The Flank of Bridenstein

I had a bit of fun with this: it's about a relationship gone wrong. I believe that the dual bass part is rhythmically interesting. Double bass and synth bass rhythmically intertwine and are coupled with a synth trumpet. There may be some Brian Eno influences a la The Drop. My album is available for $5 download at CD Baby: The Dividing Range. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/theseedsofautumn

Hymn to the Preciousness of Human Frailty #3

A third time, recorded straight to SoundCloud on my iPhone. I keep playing this song over and over, but this is the best version yet anyway. My piano is very out of tune, though. Need to fix that.

Runnin Out of Fools

Here's a version of the old standard I did with my friend Emily. I love this woman's voice and had a great time working on it.

Maple Leaf Rag

This is my own rendition of Scott Joplin's famous Maple Leaf Rag, probably the most popular piano rag of all time. Please forgive the little mistakes; if you can ignore them, I think it's somewhat rousing. [more inside]

Frostbite

I Can Dream, Can't I?

Made famous by The Andrews Sisters in 1949, here I use a beautifully understated jazz guitar version by Pizzarelli and Vignola as backing. It's been a long while since I recorded something to post, so I hope you enjoy it!

Ain't Misbehavin' (#3)

Another cover of this awesome song, which I will be playing until the day I die. I'm getting damned good at stride piano if I do say so myself.
