A jaunty (for us) Carbon 7 number from last August. I was making notes on my phone of little snippets of conversation to use as song titles. No clue how we got there, but it seemed hilarious at the time. Utterly improvisational. [more inside]
Track one off our most recent release, a dual album set called Infrared & Ultraviolet. This is the first song on Ultraviolet. For once we get right to the point, & make a short & sweet 8 1/2 minutes. Made up on the spot - totally improvisational. Titled such because there's three of us & we mirror one another as we play. Plus, it breaks space. [more inside]
Carbon 7 is an improvisational/experimental trio that creates spontaneous music at the moment it's recorded. I left a tad of dialog at the beginning, so you could here our "process." Dennis gives Ron a hard time about choosing a key, then I call out C# & start it off. Clocks in at a whopping 26.5 minutes, but it evolves slowly the entire way. [more inside]
A 13th Floor Elevators song, recorded live at Trailer Space Records last Saturday night. [more inside]

One fish was the first fish to walk on land, one fish was the first fish to breathe the air. [more inside]
Carbon 7 again -- This was the opening salvo at our Solstice show last month. 10 minutes-worth of us making it up as we go. Recorded live at the Carousel Lounge. [more inside]
In which we jam out on our axxxes. I have temporarily given up even naming these... things. Another long spontaneous session by Carbon 7, my space-rock improvisational trio. [more inside]
A song about our favourite morally dodgy chemistry teacher [more inside]
Pretty straight-up cover of the Zep song. Live rehearsal recording. [more inside]

Live recording from a song contest at my old high school, in 2005. This is a sort of symphonic metal-type song. I was very inspired by Nightwish at the time. [more inside]
Another live recording from a concert at my school in spring 2009. Music and Lyrics by me, vocals also me. [more inside]
Live recording from a concert at my school in spring 2009. Female vocals by me, and I wrote the lyrics. [more inside]
This is a live recording of my new song Shangri-La. The audio was recorded on a handheld recorder by one of the audience members. Apologies for the dodgy sound quality...but I just had to post my first bootleg! [more inside]
Another song inspired by the Rodeo Ford car dealership. [more inside]
This is a live version of a song I did with Video, a band I'm no longer in.
Classical music meets instrumental tango salsa rock. Live recording from the Ohio Action benefit show, October, Kenyon College. I took the solo on this track, replacing vocals with a violin "guest vocalist."
This track is part 2 of a 23 minute mega mash up with a steady beat and some obscure samples. When I played this set live, I was happy to see people breakin' to it. Cool! http://www.albertoforero.com
Improvised sludge-rock by three people who'd never played together before. Stereo-action guitar pyrotechnics by nylon.
