Dusted off ye olde WaveDrum (it's been a while) for a solo gig the other night, and played it over a simple bass line (from ye olde JUNO synth) which I have on ye olde iPod, for a new version of a song that appears on ye olde Roomful of Ghosts, and which ye can see on ye olde YouTubes and Vimeos.
There was once a girl, but that was long ago. A letter to a past love, recorded in one take with four microphones. KOLN • Bandcamp • Lyrics
Another live tune, from July 2010's Sengawa Jazz/Art Festival in Tokyo. here I'm playing a diddley bow, the Marron Glacé Guitar. Video of this same performance can be seen here.
I just can't stay away from this song, it has a power over me. This time it's with my diddley bow (the Marron Glacé Guitar). At the end of the song, Death momentarily overtook me and made me attack the instrument with one of these. Video of this same performance at YouTube.
Another live recording from the opening hours of January 1, 2010, coming at you from deepest Shimokitazawa, Tokyo. I'm playing the Dan Moi (Vietnamese jaw harp) here, and singing about the all-too-common concern of Tokyoites: missing that saishuu densha. Video of this same performance at YouTube or Vimeo
I think this is a pretty fun riff/song. Using a piano, loop pedal, and recording on my laptop Critique the hell out of it, as usual. (And, yes, I'm technically no pianist.) Any suggestions about how to 'flesh it out' would be welcome, too!
A lofi, live, solo acoustic cover of the fantastic Yankee Hotel Foxtrot track, recorded a few years back. Music has been way too slow the last couple days, dammit.
