An entry in the April/May MeFiMusicChallenge, inspired by the pandemic. Instrumental, chill track. [more inside]
A short instrumental piece (featuring synth) in which I basically have fun building from a loop. This is my entry for the MeFi Music challenge to submit music inspired by a MeFi post (I Saw This Thing On The Blue And...). Credit actually goes to three MetaFilter-related posts from last month: two MeFi posts by not_on_display and one MeFi Music post by ignignokt; they inspired me to create electronic music again after a decade+ hiatus.

This is for the 60 second Metafilter November Music Challenge. My software, the Platonic Music Engine, generates 6 glorious seconds of avant-garde electronic beeps and boops for your listening pleasure! Many, many, many more details inside. [more inside]
A remix of an old acoustic cover of a Slipknot song. Glitched-out and re-sampled beyond recognition.
The lovely closing track of OK Computer, re-imagined as some sort of throwback synthpop thing. [more inside]
Impromptu version of the holiday classic. This closed out the night for the Smoke Benders' last gig of 2011. Video here.

Cover of The Rascals' song that was a Billboard #1 hit on the day I was born. With a bit of a nod to "The Model." [more inside]
Completely fucked dance-noise cover of Olivia Newton-John's "Physical." Sincere apologies to my parents, who were big fans of her when this came out. [more inside]
Oh god. Oh god, it's running. [more inside]
You won't be able to escape this in the clubs this summer. Unless you just stay away, which is what I recommend. [more inside]
A song written for the very specific occasion of riding home on a bicycle in a light drizzle. [more inside]
It's not really that satanic. And you can still dance to it Peanuts-style. [more inside]
Short GarageBand arrangement. [more inside]
My very first MeFiMuCh entry, this one is Halloween themed. It is dark and spookily minimalist electronic pop with ghostly vocals and lyrics about being at the end of the world (via zombie apocalypse) with a loved one and the logistics of love in the time of zombies. Interesting to note, this song was originally written on banjo as a folk song. But when trying to add some electronic elements to it experimenting with the recorded version I decided to make it a straight electronic song. [more inside]
A breakbeat/big beat spy song -- one part Propellerheads ripoff, one part Space Ghost nonsense. [more inside]
This is a pointless instrumental cover version of Meatbomb's recent a capella (one extreme to the other), Blah blah blah for the MeFi Music challenge, so now you can sing along to the tune*! [more inside]
A little improv ambient electronic jam I made last night that was definitely influenced by herbs. [more inside]
A song I produced with a much older version of FLStudio. Sudden stops and changes of timbre abound.
last minute submission for the music challenge, 'spooky' retro-electro goodness with christopher walken.
This is what happens when I try and make happy music. Too many notes!
Plays round-the-clock in Satan's dance club. [more inside]
My take on mid 70s Michael Stearns from Planetary Unfolding, with a dash of Kubrick ala 2001. It's dark, brooding space music. [more inside]
No mere mortal can resist \ The evil of the thriller
Squeezed in on the last day of the challenge, this is a modern snake charming piece. It's ambient/experimental/electronic. Complete with rattlesnake sample.
Only tangentially related to the theme of the challenge, but my testing audience thought the song sounded like ripples, and that seemed like enough (plus it motivated me to finish sooner than I might have!).
