Just mucking about with Audacity, playing with sliders and buttons and numbers. This is a 3-minute slow-motion loop of the Gap Band, Dif Juz, and PJ Harvey, all noodled up and sludged out and ready for your next terrifying bout of sleep paralysis.

Signal Tower

Semi-ambient modern synth pad instrumental with minimalist electronic bass, reversed electric guitar, and some pretty and deliberate vinyl crackle-ish soft static noise and a gentle mix of treated samples. Maybe sort of cinematic? [more inside]

Brittle Hope

Made this somewhat experimental ambient-ish piece last night, feeling a tiny bit of hope about the world. It's based on slowed-down samples of a hang-drum, with a keyboard part doing most of the rest. [more inside]

Listen, a song by Sredni Vashtar. Recorded, as usual, at rehearsal. The loop drones throughout and the guitar and bass are sparse and simple.

I am happy to you. Inspired by this MeFi post and the audio that went with it. And old track I remixed. Particularly looking for feedback on the bass instrument and how it's mixed etc.

How do you make music?

Made with samples of my voice. My sister wanted to know how you "make" an instrument on the computer. [more inside]

Samples, synths, feelings.

Escritiore Conundrum

An old thing that's been sitting too long, I envision this as the music playing in your head when you've gone to bed, can't sleep, and have gotten back up and gone back to your workspace to crunch on that ONE odd thing that's been bugging you about your latest project. [more inside]

fuq's theme

Everyone needs a theme song to play when they enter a thread. Here's mine. Super ADHD massive drums, cuts, and effects that explodes into hard house. [more inside]

short service

I don't really remember how I made this...it was several weeks ago now...but I think it's old tamborine and piano samples; plus, bicycle spokes? and dowel rods maybe? yeah, it's made of stuff. [more inside]

Now's the time

Samples. It all started with "Now's the fucking time!" from Kill Bill. Then Prince joined in, and then it got out of hand. Elvis has the last word.

face to face to face

Two days ago I shot some video: a reflection of a man riding a Tokyo train, watching another moving train (a shinkansen) pass by on a parallel track. I made this music today, to serve as accompaniment for the 58-second film. I uploaded the video earlier this evening to YouTube here.

Lost at Sea

I decided to take a trip back to when I first started writing music on my computer. (No, this isn't a submission to the montly music challenge.) This is a super noisy track, from my Buzz days. Very different from anything I've written lately, but one of my favorite tracks I've ever written. [more inside]

Half Remembrance

For the past several years I've been regularly composing music for a fashion design company here in Tokyo, for use in their fashion shows. Here's something recent, a relatively short piece at 3:45, done for one of their upcoming shows.

Feeding the Earworm

Another song I did for the RPM Challenge. In my single-handed attempt to bring video samples back into music, this one uses a sample from an instructional film called "duck and cover"

Savage Engineering (Hibernation Sickness)

Sometimes breaks, samples and dirty synths are reason enough. Lestrade.

OK Chorale

Something a bit different. Vocal samples (mine) cut up and arranged in a sort of chorale form against a bluesy backdrop.

An ambient-ish piece composed entirely of processed flute samples. I go by the name Tx-Rx for the electronica type stuff I do occasionally 'cos, you know, it's fun to have multiple musical personae.
