A quiet piano driven song cut and pasted on itself.
A piano motif and followed by a remix of itself at 1:20.
Glitchy acoustic guitars and a piano.
Instrumental tinkly cut and paste tune.
Another improvised electro-acoustic/glitch tune.
Next song in a series of electronic pieces with sampled acoustic instruments.
Folky electronic music.
Me and MeFi's own Minus215Cee. I play the squishy trumpet and scratchy electronics toward the right, he plays the sharp sax toward the left. [more inside]
An ambient electronic track, in perhaps an early Warp Records vein. Made using Ableton Live and various plugins (Absynth and Massive, among them).
5:30 in the morning at the park by Da Vinci middle school, me and my sampling synth and some birds under a roof [more inside]
An ambient piece, performed in the fountain at Oregon Park in Portland, OR [more inside]
Track 10 of 10 from my RPM entry. The vocal melody during the verse-ish bits is maybe a little too simple, but the whole song for me is kinda justified by the breakdown, which is the best I think I've ever gotten my voice to sound when recorded.
One of my two favorites from my RPM entry. I didn't have time to get a good vocal take, so it's a first take. It's not that weak though (the effects I would've put on it regardless). [more inside]
A real song! I kind of like the way it floats on before that ... off, bottom-of-the-well creepy harmony thing at the end. I dunno. 8 of 10 from my RPM entry.
In which I do a bad Liars impression. 7 of 10 from my RPM entry.
Track 6 of 10 from my RPM08 entry. I think of all the underdeveloped tracks, this one's my favorite. A bit more time/work and it could be quite the heavy hitter.
Yet another track from my RPM challenge entry (5 of 10, as a matter of fact). Named rather literally, as this song isn't terribly developed and was kept around simply because it filled up some space.
As much of an experiment in Wacky Vocal Effects as it is a proper song, from my point of view. I like the end bit with the keyboard part and the strange cycling. I'm surprised at how many people I've shown my RPM challenge entry to really like this one (It's one of the underdeveloped ones, as far as I'm concerned).
Third track from RPM08 thing.
Second track from my RPM08 entry, and the first proper song. I find it kind of humorous and rather like the beat (and some, but not all of the heavy vocal processing). I couldn't quite get the chorus right but the creepy-processed-whisper-thing is a not-so-bad substitute. [more inside]
The first track from my entry for RPM08. Not much to say about it. Just a little 90-second mood-setter type thing.
I've been recording a new song every week, and and uploading to the web every Wednesday this year, for something I call "Hump Wednesday" (as it's the hump day, right?) Anyway, this week marks week 20 of this (questionable) endeavor. Here's an archive of all the tracks to date - I have more info as to how/why I'm doing this on my MySpace page, which I'll link to if anyone asks. ps: my tunes are short, abstract but catchy electronic pieces, done with just my iBook and some homemade software. If you like Solex, Cornelius, or Mouse On Mars, you might like this...
This is an "ambient" song with lots of abuse of delay and reverb, but I made an effort to give it more structure than your typical formless synth-gasm.
