'Creep' cover on the OP-1

I think I'm getting the hang of this thing. I got most of the way through comping this out and writing a melody when I realized I liked this better. There's singing eventually. [more inside]

flUke

I've had this descending chord progression stuck in my head for a few weeks so I decided to record it and cut it up. Another OP-1 jam. [more inside]

beach week

Put together with my niece on a family reunion trip to Mission Bay. Lots of handclaps and arpeggiator (too many handclaps?) Another mostly op-1 track.

va como oye

Another all op-1 track, wanted to try creating a custom drum kit from the built in FM radio. Quickly escaped my normal musical comfort zone but pretty fun nonetheless.

OP-1 Clicks and womms

Recently got a Teenage Engineering OP-1 and this is a first attempt to put the 4-track through it's paces. It's a noisy little thing, extremely digital. In addition decided to put this together without any sequencers so the rhythms are... inconsistent. This is straight out of the device, no additional processing.

Depression Groove

This gloomy synth jam was made on an airplane and finished late at night in my parents' home during an emotionally complicated visit. [more inside]

A Small Grey Box Filled With Joy

I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental. [more inside]

puzzle box

Games with arpeggiators. Would probably make a good background bit for a podcast about mysterious goings on in an abandoned synthesizer factory.

dreams over drones

A very brief (50s) sketch I worked up on the train the other day. Crunchy synth bass drone in conversation with a ringing guitar (also synthesized).

Wear your Pixel-Socks to the Digi-Hop

Kinda of a bleepy-bloopy little instrumental jam. I'm really kind of fond of this one. [more inside]

Butterfly Nets

This is a cover of Bishop Allen's "Butterfly Nets." While the song is a favorite of teenage girls on with ukeleles on Youtube, I am instead a 34-year-old baritone with Garageband and an OP-1.
