song 5 of 11 of cornfield [more inside]
Track four from Inchoatery. More Microkorg than you can shake a stick, and a lot of other changes from the demo I posted last month. [more inside]
The second track off my new album, Inchoatery. Sort of a pop-rock braggadocio, the euphoric declarations of someone still feeling the relief instead of the pain of a breakup a long time in the coming.

Lead-off track from my new RPM album, Inchoatery. I'm still getting my ducks in a row as far as the album's proper home on my music blog, but I'm pretty happy with what I came up with and I wanted to share. [more inside]
The opening track from our RPM 2010 double album, Demons of Gyrophonia & the Rotatable Tremulant All-Stars. [more inside]

Viola/Tenor sax duet, to be included in our submission to the RPM 2010 challenge. [more inside]
Another RPM album preview, presumably about football? [more inside]
I'm starting in on the final recordings for the album in a month, and I've started with this big epic third track. Still needs work but it's a good start. [more inside]
Place your bets, ladies and gents! The fight is about to start! [more inside]
Another RPM demo, this one a super-upbeat thing about neurotic fears about what one's ex is getting up to. [more inside]
Uke-driven boozer's lament. One of the demos I recorded yesterday for my album-in-a-month. [more inside]
The final movement of my first (and, so far, only) composition, a multi-movement improvisational piece for acoustic vs. electronic instruments, based on the 1997 rematch set of chess games between Garry Kasparov and the computer, Deep Blue. [more inside]
I've pinpointed the reason our economy is in shambles. It wasn't the subprime mortgage crisis. It wasn't Bernie Madoff. It wasn't even the president. The moment our global economy collapsed was when Bob Barker retired as game show host. [more inside]
The fourth Sailor Martin song for the RPM Challenge. An out-of-tune concertina, a ukulele, a tambourine, and a sailor's fantasy. [more inside]
My second song for the RPM challenge, written for my horrible puppet, Sailor Martin. [more inside]
MefiMuChallenge submission and my first real attempt at multi tracking vocals. [more inside]
Recorded quick, titled in a hurry. Kind of sappy with an out-of-tune piano.
A slice of 13.
I had this vague melody a year or so ago, and at the time it was starting to become a song about riding my bike at night, drunk. I stuck it on the backburner until after I saw that Johnny Cash bio-pic, where they sing that June Carter duet "Time's a Wastin'" together, (which they never did in real life.) So then I got this idea to write a nice country duet like that, but instead of it being all happy and fresh-new-relationship-let's-consummate-it kinda thing, I wanted it to be about people that hated each other intensely. People that were sick and tired of seeing each other everyday for years and years. Then, for an added twist, I forced my lovely wife to sing the harmony part. We actually do like each other, though.
One of the nearly-finished songs for my almost-done RPM 07 album. Navelgazing lyrics, lush instrumentation.
A second pretty much complete song for the RPM Challenge. Fancy ears will be able to pick out my attempt at learning to play the Cuatro that was hand-delivered to my front door from the awesome and amazing Micayetoca in Venezuela.
A song I did for that RPM thing, the first kinda finished one. 9 more to go.
A rough structural demo of one of the songs I've written this month. Catchy, upbeat reflection on the simpler, softer times of my highschool musical upbringing. Imagine this with a dozen people clapping and singing along. And maybe an awesome guitar solo. I've still got three weeks, after all.
