Just as the seasons can see a categorical change in all the features embodied in this one unifying phenomenon we call 'the weather', so too can a song be totally turned on its head from the original version, doing a near about-face.... that is what happened to this track in this remix by Malcolm Holmes, famous for his participation in legendary synthpop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD).

This is one Ummagma track that has been totally turned on it's head, taking what was a dreampop folkrock-ish track and utterly transforming it into an whirling electro-dance track with traces of vocals from Shauna McLarnon. [more inside]

A song about waiting for your love to return to you, and being afraid of the state she might find you in when she does.
Demo of the first track from a dumbass pop concept album I'm working on.
Music for Spring. Another oldie from the 1980's. The Beat Meters was my 7-piece Pop-Dance orchestra with 2 girl singers in front, bass, drums, guitars, keys & sometimes 2 drummers/percussionists. We spent a crap-ton of money on a 4-song demo, but due to a revolving door of personnel, never managed to really get the thing off the ground. [more inside]
A new direction for me... Italo-disco-cyberpunk-house-pop?
Another semi-anthemic dance song about dancing with a girl! [more inside]

The first song I ever wrote, dating back to 1986. A pop song about a real Cindy and a possibly invented dance, sung in a fragile and especially twee manner. Part of my Old Songs project. [more inside]

A dancey pop kinda thing. I finished all the recording and rough mixes for my next album so I'm starting to enjoy making music again. Also: trying to be less of a perfectionist so I maybe don't go bonkers.

A simple, melancholy electro instrumental that I recorded a couple of years ago. Percussion ideas came from various hip-hop sources; the melody is my own. I use it as background music during a spoken-word segment of my live shows. [more inside]
A dancey synthpop song about the romances of hipsters.
