Arp and Piano

Improvising on piano over a synth arp

...And All Her Angels Are Wolves

The last – and melodically and harmonically my favorite – song on the All Her Angels EP. Guess the secret lyrics for the (instrumental) chorus! Or invent your own.

Happy Like a Hand Grenade

A fast, upbeat back-and-forth between piano and synths - the piano gets a little moody but the choruses are simple uplifting fun. It's track 4/5 on the All Her Angels EP.

Nice, Nice

It's track 3/5 on the All Her Angels EP and you can watch a play-through of it as a BeatSaber level too! Has some very pretty piano if I say so myself.

Out of Metal and Wire

It's track 5/5 on the Hellish EP, and the highest tempo by a good measure, at a brisk 175bpm with it's own kind of groove.

If I Can (You Can Too)

A pretty simple dance tune. I borrowed (well, adapted) a melody, I admit - but it was a 4/4 melody crying out to be in 3/4, and I wanted to set it right. This is track 2/5 on the Hellish EP.

improvisation on some counterpoint ideas

I am just learning, piano is my second instrument. I like to record one take improvised pieces if that first track goes ok then I might improvise another track or two. That is my process, I don't want to get into long edited and mixed work for now. However, if anyone wants music I'm willing to work a lot more and polish things up.

And the Sunlight Among the Trees

A short (1:27) original piece of me on solo piano. It's a reworking / different arrangement of a previous tune I posted, which was piano & guitar. This is a slightly different take on rhythm and melody -- more of a contemplative feeling, and still reflective and reassuring (I hope). Happy new year, MetaFilter! [more inside]

Divisions

Also electronics + piano. A bit more pianistic and melodic; more "pretty" than "driven."

Deeper Well (Emmylou Harris cover)

I love this song. Cover with guitar, piano. From her 1995 album Wrecking Ball, which Wikipedia calls "career redefining."

Rose

I like it again. This is the piano track I posted before (now without the synth, and with vocals and backing vocal harmony) but I think I've mostly solved the problem that to me the whole thing felt kind of lifeless. (At least I felt confident enough to replace the old track with this on SoundCloud, hope that was wise.) What do you think?

Stay

Flowing, dark piano and atmospheric synth. TBH I've been tinkering with this for so long that I'm not sure if I like it anymore. (It's like the "if you a repeat a word enough times it doesn't even sound like a word" effect--I don't hear what I once heard in it.) But I really liked the piano part when I first came up with it. What do you think?

Does this belong in a movie?

There's a song with words and stuff that this was originally based on, but I like the instrumental version better. Mellow, textured, haunting, builds slowly. What do you think?

Let's try that again

This is a complete reworking of a song I posted before (17) which is now...prettier? Mellower? Flows more? What do you think of my new direction? [more inside]

This piano part and vocal melody have been rattling around in my brain for a while--finally wrote some lyrics and fleshed it out a bit.

Thoughts in B-flat

In the past couple of weeks, I found myself going back to a piece that I'd started working on a few years ago -- probably because it's in a slower triple meter that's somewhat calming for me. This is a condensed one-minute version, featuring piano and guitar, for the 60 Seconds and Under #2 MeFi Music Challenge. [more inside]

Witch of the Waves

Original tune - not related to any others of the same name - for piano and electronics. Around 124 bpm, 4/4, lots of melody, lots of drama. The last track completed for my Migration album.

Distant Past

Jessamyn bought me a really nice sounding small guitar, twenny bux with all the trimmings! I'd also just bought a really sweet Yeti Blue mic off Craigslist for $25. What a bargain! So this is how I tested the two out. [more inside]

Hollow Words

A foot tapping piano-based rocker with some catchy riffs and pretty little intro that walks the line of being a little too long but IMO really sets the mood for the song.

Ruby Prelude

Piano solo. This opens none too gently at about 138bpm and covers a lot of territory inside three minutes. It should flow nicely into its companion piece, Turquoise Migration. [more inside]
