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.
Piano vs. Electronics. Kinda epic even though it's not all that long! [more inside]
A proof of concept. This was our first complete take at this at rehearsal a couple weeks ago. My prog tribute project, The Yes Men. All live, recorded in the garage by John. [more inside]
It's all in the lyrics with this song, though I think the tone of the music gives away quite a lot too. Indie rock with a progressive dreampop edge. Short and sweet :) This is our Ummagma - findable for search-happy folks at www.facebook.com/ummagma [more inside]
Tastefully blending several genres together, including indie or alternative rock, dreampop, space rock, psychedelia, ambient and shoegaze. Sounds of Sputnik is a project producing a sound that immediately brings several associations to the surface - like dreaming, space, flight, exploration, reflection. Worth a listen whether or not you have or have not traditionally gone in the above-mentioned genres of music. [more inside]
When a band "dances" on the border between 6 or more musical genres and one of them happens to be progressive rock, the listener is often in for a delightful surprise. Hopefully this song qualifies as one of them. This is "Outside" by Ummagma. [more inside]
Short, fun and bouncy, melodic, dancelike-although-odd-metered, all electronic instrumental. Sort of like a lobotomized Dream Theatre interpreted via Kitsune2 would be one way of putting it. [more inside]
This is progressive instrumental death metal played in a strange tuning. Lots of layered guitar and bass work. [more inside]
Synth/Prog/Metal/Dance/videogamey song from a concept record about the end of everything. [more inside]
This is the fourth (and maybe final) People Will Blink song posted on this page. This one is definitely a prog-rock tune. It's about a day in the life of a superhero who doesn't really.... do anything. But there's an epic battle at the end. [more inside]
My homage to Rez.
Yet another song from the new People Will Blink record. This song really kicks in at about 1:15, so be patient. [more inside]
Another song off of the new People Will Blink record. We wrote this in 2003 and it has been a fan-favorite ever since. Every time we ask Azeem what the lyrics are about, we get a different response. From what I can gather, a pirate is appearing to someone in a dream. I am the voice of said pirate. [more inside]
First song off of the new People Will Blink record. This song was written about 3 years ago and went through many transformations before it began to sound... well... listenable. When we played this song live, Azeem used a vocoder during the bridge. He forgot it in California when we recorded, so we used a clarinet, melodica, and recorder in it's place. [more inside]
BlatantSelfPromotionFilter: This is the second track of my band's debut album. The best description I can give is that it's a jazzy flavor of progressive metal. Please enjoy. www.gaiamusic.net to hear more.
This is the title track of my band, Themasses, new CD. It was originally an instrumental but had lyrics and melody added by singer extrordinaire Sherry St. Germain during the recording process. It was produced by Ben Kaplan and Themasses and recorded at The Farm Studio in Gibsons BC, Canada. Enjoy!
