Michael Nyman: The Piano - Big My Secret
I don't like the movie The Piano, but I do like Michael Nyman's soundtrack. I usually program all my music with a sequencer, so this is my first attempt to capture myself live. [more inside]
So Straight and Slow (Robin Holcomb cover)
Programmed, recorded and edited today. This song appears on Robin Holcomb's self-titled album from 1990. It's got some odd key changes and a lot of clashing notes. [more inside]
I'm neither a jazz writer nor a jazz singer, but that didn't stop me from trying. It's part of an album I'm gradually releasing online. [more inside]
NaSoPiAlMo No. 5 (arr. for string quartet)
I took a piano piece I wrote two years ago for National Solo Album Month and arranged it for string quartet. Then I used the Orkester Library in Reason to record it. I was heavily under the influence of Michael Nyman at the time, although this one feels much more like Philip Glass. [more inside]
NaSoPiAlMo No. 6/Flugufrelsarinn
Here's the MIDI playback of a piano piece I wrote for NaSoAlMo back in 2006. I felt cheeky and riffed on Sigur Rós' "Flugufrelsarinn" for the chorus. An actual quote appears toward the end. [more inside]
I wanted to write something that used two famous musical initials -- DSCH (D-Eb-C-B, Dmitri Shostakovich) and BACH (Bb-A-C-B). I put them in the bass. Needs more harp.
A Simple Song
A misleading title. It's a two-voice piano piece with a diatonic melody in the treble and a bass line that clashes whenever it can. A reasonably challenging piece for the intermediate player. Also sounds like watered-down Wayne Horvitz.
Eponymous 4 - Speechless
Piano and some weird percussion thing. I'm not a singer, so I'm choosing songs where my voice annoys me the least.
