Hymn to the Preciousness of Human Frailty #3

A third time, recorded straight to SoundCloud on my iPhone. I keep playing this song over and over, but this is the best version yet anyway. My piano is very out of tune, though. Need to fix that.

Millimeters of Mercury — Disaster in 4 Hands

Two science majors taking a keyboard (piano) class. The two decide to create a piece that attempts to combine randomness and coherence. Rules: 1. There is a set motif for each segment. The motif is prewritten. It's decided who must play it at each time. The other may play it, but may also rest or make something up. Made up melodies must use whole tones, half tones, or tritones but not more than 1 of the 3 in one segment. The conclusion and intro are prewritten for both players. 2. You may play the assigned motif in any key you desire. The other player is not told which keys. 3. Tempo, time signature (usually 5/8 or 7/8), structure, and dynamics are pre-determined.

Hymn to the Preciousness of Human Frailty

Here's a new recording I made last night. It's a song of my own composition. I feel like it's a strong interpretation, and I think my style is becoming more personal. [more inside]

Golden Ratio

You just want an excuse to dance. KOLNBandcampLyrics This is the penultimate entry in a series of outtakes that did not make it onto the album "Damn Poets", to be released soon. (It is implied that the tracks on the album are superior to these outtakes. This is true.) If you like my songs, I would very much appreciate if you'd consider leaving your email. You will not be spammed; you will be among the first to find out when Damn Poets drops.

song for Jasper

Two dear friends of mine recently had their first child. This is the emotional piano solo I recorded in celebration. I think it's kind of reminiscent of Keith Jarrett.

Truth's A Patient Stalker

A new (very early) rough mix from a chamber pop project I'm doing called "Wishing Well Divers." It's sung from the perspective of Truth personified as a stalker patiently pursuing a corrupt business man. It features cello, piano, acoustic guitar, and an early, rough vocal cut (there are some changes still coming to the vocals, and the guitars will get a boost in the mix ). At any rate, it's a glimpse of where this is going. I welcome any (gentle) feedback. Lyrics below the fold. [more inside]

(Tumble) in the Wind [cover]

Here is a cover of the song (Tumble) in the Wind by Jackson C. Frank. I was drawn to this song by the way he is ostensibly singing to someone, but it feels distinctly like there really isn't anyone he is singing to. Piano, reversed piano, attempt at falsetto, ramshackle percussion.

Partyin'. - Hamps.

A very crap-quality song I wrote using three chords on a synthesizer keyboard and a terrible singing voice. Anyone who knows me knows that this entire thing is a massive satire, so don't take the lyrics or the cheesiness at face value. On second thought, I am probably even more cheesy than this song tells.

Songes of Love

So, I like ben folds, I've been sitting on a great piano arrangement of this forever, and I can't focus enough to attend to the pile of writing I've fallen behind on. But if I'm creating something that can be shared, is it REALLY slacking? This is a cover of one of my favorites from Supersunnyspeedgraphic, the LP, "Songs of Love".

Outspeak

I thought I'd throw a few older compositions up here for fun. This is a short piano trio I composed in 2004. Lots of extended techniques and other academic foolery. But it still rocks a little, when it does.

foot chase

Easy little piano/drum instrumental track that a friend and I recorded a few years back. I call it "foot chase" because for some reason it makes me imagine being on the run from someone.
