So I have another instrumental piece of pop to share with everyone. This one has lyrics but I don't like the way my vocals sound with it. It basically expresses remorse for a Wet Reckless (reduced DUI) in a roundabout way all while using a 1-5-6-4 progression that avoids total cliché by way of a treble synth playing altered tones and keeping it fresh.

7/8 is usually thought of as an aggressive time signature — for the likes of harder jazz, metalcore, and Stravinsky. But here I'm using it in a ballad. The melody playfully bounces and trips over itself in 7/8, blushing and giggling around its crush while trying to be smooth with racing thoughts and too much to say. Still trying to find the right words and vocalist.
A theme for that girl who's hot and she knows it. [more inside]
Millimeters of Mercury is back after the end of finals at USC to present this decidedly retro electropop song that bounces and pounds in B flat major, occasionally straying into harmonic minor and dabbling in diminished chords and flat sevenths. Enjoy. =]
Based on a chopped and sliced sample of a heart beating, in this track Millimeters of Mercury (my "stage name") pulls his shields of extreme Auto-Tune down slightly to let you get a little more close and personal.
an original song. :) ever had a bad break-up? i have. [warning, there's some explicit language toward the end. okay, there's a lot of explicit language at the end. ;)]
