Naturelle 2

I bought an old Steinway upright recently, on which I've been making pieces like this, which I call "naturelles." Three more naturelles on Bandcamp, here: https://raygull.bandcamp.com/album/naturelles-1-4 [more inside]

More concertina and bayan based minimalist weirdness, this time with trombone! Noisy bits are just clickety clacking the bayan's keys, and crumpling some paper.

I'm learning to play the bayan (Russian Chomatic button accordion) and the concertina, and accidentally fell into Terry Riley / Steve Reich territory. [more inside]

If you let your imagination drift towards southeastern Europe, somewhere wedged between Fellini's Italy and Emir Kusturica's Balkans, and then you put such wanderings into a soundtrack, this is likely what you would end up with - Balkanofellini :) [more inside]

Failing Inspiration

For the second in as many attempts at the RPM Challenge, I have created a work that in its sustained and complete for is extremely challenging to listen to. [more inside]

I Trust You To Kill Me

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]

Minimalist sort of lyrical composition about playing with a band. An attempt at a sort of pseudo-wall of sound composition of Apple Loops behind it. [more inside]

This month, I'm recording the "first draft" of an album that will later be redone in a studio, all professional-like. Tonight I was in an intensely, painfully lonely state, so I decided to record the most intensely, painfully lonely song I've ever written. Hohner-Gruhn guitar, Audio-Technica microphone, and GarageBand.

Perfect Gun

Some deep, plodding minimalist electronica. Another tracking effort. Even so, I don't think I constrained myself enough - I could probably leave some more beats out...
