14 minutes of improvisation from Carbon 7, heralding the end of the Mayan Long Count. [more inside]
Carbon 7 again, from last June. This one sounds more like an actual song than about anything we've done, so far. 16 minutes of spontaneous creation. [more inside]
Spacey indie rock, recorded in rehearsal by our band, radiateur. [more inside]
Carbon 7 does yet another improv. Uptempo. We played all the notes. [more inside]
Another Carbon 7 song from our recent show at the Carousel Lounge. [more inside]
A spontaneous 20-minute creation by Carbon 7. The first song from our first live show a couple weeks ago. We tripped a breaker at 20:44 or it would have gone longer. [more inside]
A slow, jazzy improv thing. [more inside]
PARKING LOT PIMPIN IS A TRAPPY SONG FROM SPACE AGE FAMILY RAINING BRICKS CD. [more inside]
Back on the horse! Here's a song I wrote and recorded tonight. The idea was a laid-back, french café sort of sounding tune. It's about interstellar exploration. [more inside]
Another long instrumental noodle-athon. Making it up as we go. [more inside]
Starts out atmospheric as we slowly descend through the thickening clouds. [more inside]
A one-off structured song that I recorded in 2010 unlike most things I make... -Yair O
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]
Another Improvisational thing from my new band Carbon 7. This one's a bit long, at 19 minutes. [more inside]
My new psychedelic improv trio, Carbon 7. We're making it up as we go along. [more inside]
It was not night, when I started Speaking (with bad pitch before 20 seconds)... Peaceful concessions, what is a chordate? Love songs at cross purpose, missing the cross winds. It's all your fault, but mostly it's all mine too. [more inside]
Quiet, loud, low, and high bleeps. Plus drums. (Unfortunately, it sounds weird on built-in computer speakers. The toms and bass get chopped out almost completely. Maybe skip if you don't have headphones. Sorry, guys.)
Just a short little Spacetrancy song...
More music for deep space, take your protein pill and put your helmet on. [more inside]
Playing around with Saturn's Radio Emissions.
A rock ode to the bat that clung to the Space Shuttle Discovery. Thoughts? [more inside]
A very quickly produced (potentially unfinished?) song recorded with a Kaossilator, a Realistic MG-1, a Big Muff and a Space Echo for my solo recording project, Birdlaw. This is the song you hear when you reach the end of the universe.
Another sketch of a song.
Just a little rhythmic experiment, not actually gamelan but reminiscent.
For all the hip-hop fans hiding in the tall grass around the perimeter of MeFi Music. [more inside]
This is the awful song I made this morning with the help of Ask Metafilter. Relax to the smooth sounds of two minutes of obnoxious beeping! [more inside]
You're the blessed, we're the Spiders from Marzzzz-uh! [more inside]
I've been listening to a lot of boogie, funk and electro from the early 80s recently. This is my dubstep homage to those lovely genres. [more inside]
Kraftwerk-esque dubstep. Attempting to balance heaviness, vintageness and spaciness. [more inside]
Some pretty heavy space dubstep that I made for a variety show that happened this past weekend. [more inside]
Aether: in ancient thought, the elemental god of the "bright, glowing, upper air," the changeless substance that fills the universe above the terrestrial sphere. This is what I imagine traveling through it sounds like. [more inside]
A song I made for an animated movie that might exist about people that are addicted to stars. [more inside]
An electronic dance song I made the other day, but now with more of the flavor of today. [more inside]
happy drone; space is nice
Ethereal dubstep/psychedelic vocoder jam. I think I love this song. [more inside]
With a ukulele, some whistling, and several Garage Band 09 filters, you can make something that sounds like a transmission from Venus. [more inside]
A spaced out dub remix of OJ Da Juiceman. Features some cocaine rap so it is not for fragile ears. [more inside]
Some more space music, a little majestic and melodic this time. [more inside]
A little space music, with random satellite transmissions.
Continuing with my beat-oriented theme of late. Autechre-like, but they're still 1,000 times better than I am. This one's noisy and glitchy, just the way I like it.
Just discovered on an old unlabeled audio CD-R. [more inside]
A soft soak in a warm bath of electroluminescent air gel.
A curious alien has snatched one of our spacecraft from orbit and sent back a very strange signal...
At home one Saturday night in about 1984, I got interested in just how hard it was to say words backwards, flip the tape, & have them come out intelligible. It took hours, and was much harder than I thought. [more inside]
Something a spacecraft might hear on the edge of the solar system
A few minutes of crazy space noise and strange particle interactions. [more inside]
Title inspired by a friend's idea for a new comic book. An ultra-happy electro love-fest with all the fixings... handclaps, warm synth pads, uplifting key changes, sparkly arps. Enjoy!
In an attempt to branch out a bit, I made this song entirely on the keyboard. Most of my songs are pretty sample-heavy but this one has almost no samples at all, just the drum loop, which is severely cut up and re-arranged. A good song to listen to when cruising in orbit in your spaceship.
When I lived in Anchorage a few years back, during one of the summers one of the runways at the local international airport was shut down so all of the aeroplanes were taking off and flying over the city instead of flying out over the water like they usually did. So that's what this song is about. Sounds best on a very loud stereo.
This comes from the archives (dating back to 1999 or thereabouts), the heavily edited highlights of a long and extremely abstract jam. I produced it and I'm pretty sure I blew into some kind of flute like instrument at some point or other. Apparently there's versions of it floating around out there credited to both LSD49 and Slow Fallout.
