Band: The Next Hundred Years Album: Troppo [more inside]
Another sketch of a song.
Written and recorded in or around 2004 (although exhibiting a very '80's sound & texture), I've been thinking, in a desultory way, about re-recording this one - comments on whether it's worth the candle welcome, as ever.... [more inside]
I wrot ethis electronic piece after reading Pale Blue Dot by Carl Sagan. He writes on one specific photograph taken from deep space, and coins our earth a "mote of dust" in the cosmic landscape. This piece was inspired by use of imagery in the sound design, as well as Carl Sagan's musings in Pale Blue Dot. I imagine the primary theme as particles of dust, in perpetual motion in a shaft of light. The context of these "motes" is expressed as the piece develops into increasing complexity. The mote is always there, omnipresent yet insignificant in the cloud of actvity around it. I hope you all enjoy it [more inside]

Piano! Mellotron! Squealing guitars! Stewardesses! I've been working on this for a few weeks now. It's one of the more complex arrangements I've attempted in a while. I think I'm getting close to done, but I could really use some feed back. Thanks, folks! [more inside]
I wash myself with a rag on a stick
An old school rockin country song for the serious drinker. I'm goin' down.
The result of a night of drinking and foolish songwriting. The words (i hesitate to call them lyrics) were written indepently by 5 different people. The music is two guys on guitars and one guy banging on a stop sign.
