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]
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]
my friend Kyle Butler and I, recording as Kiltertolks. Improvisation, guitar, piano, field recordings/samples, computer generated sounds. [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.
Here's an old song from Sredni Vashtar, revamped, restructured and recorded at rehearsal a few weeks ago [more inside]
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.
Made with samples of my voice. My sister wanted to know how you "make" an instrument on the computer. [more inside]
Samples, synths, feelings.
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]
Kate Bush, Glen Miller Orchestra. Precious. The Devil gives me everything, except for what I need.
[SPOILER FOR SLEEPY PETE] Half of a blind collaboration with sleepy pete. [more inside]
Circa 06: sped up samples, off-kilter rhythms, synth bass, all washed in reverb
Chopped up Biggie Smalls and a drum sampler with a short attention span. nsfw [more inside]
Intricate filtered organ and cello sounds. [more inside]
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]
One of my very early beats, and I'm posting it after hearing the music in this post which you should check out. [more inside]
I'm—helloo, umm, hello. I'm hello to you, uhh, bonnie. And, uhh. . . Rosie. I'm—I'm happy to you. [more inside]
Fun with uncleared samples. Stairway to Stardom, Nina, Boots Randolph. Looking for feedback.
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]
Inspiration for all you students... [more inside]
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.
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.
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]
A collaboration between myself and Ottawa-based producer/DJ/bass&keyboard-player/singer/rapper/radio-show-host (did I miss anything?) D-Mass from a few years back arranged and recorded in his old living room. [more inside]
A remix of a song I made that was leagues better than the original. Only 1 element of the original remains. [more inside]
Beyond all reason or common sense. But it has pretty girls.
Samples come from an interviewee recalling experiences from the great depression.
Credit to Jimmy Garrison on bass. An old collage of my own samples plus his bass from the live recording of A love Supreme.
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.
Made with samples found in a subfounder of my steam directory. FLStudio, how I love thee. (some samples nsfw)
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"
Sometimes breaks, samples and dirty synths are reason enough. Lestrade.
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.
