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.
Part of the unofficial internal mic mefi challenge. A song about a car accident outside my apartment building and the people that come to watch. [more inside]
Another demo for our album that is in production. Sung by my friend and drummer Neil who has recently found his voice. A song of regret and the often crushing weight of unconditional love. [more inside]
enjoy! [more inside]
Nedroid's unofficial theme-song (with official, Nedroid-penned lyrics!) About five years ago (in the early stage of my mefi lurking) my good buddy, TheMadJuggler asked me to throw together a little tune for his net-buddy, Nedroid. Here's a pretty faithful version of the song I came up with. I post this as the last song recorded in my shitty little Haverhill apartment, as a fan/love letter to a fine cartoonist. [more inside]

Upon finding yourself floating pleasantly in a canoe, you are launched into orbit. Alas.

A little improv ambient electronic jam I made last night that was definitely influenced by herbs. [more inside]
A "drifty" and atmospheric song about life and death and love, complete with harp. [more inside]

My take on mid 70s Michael Stearns from Planetary Unfolding, with a dash of Kubrick ala 2001. It's dark, brooding space music. [more inside]
This is an old-ish one from when I was first learning Cubase and Reason. Ambient-ish electronic type stuff!
I made this little song last night. The lyrics, albeit very simple, have been stuck in my head for some time. And they reminded me of Captain Fred Stone and Flyball drifting silently through the cosmos. I guess this would have to be before Flyball hooked up with Moofa, the cat from mars, and had kittens. And a warning: the first time through the chorus is a bit rough.
an overwhelmingly ambient texture, pierced with many elements of various density - scraped percussion, Latin and bluegrass gestures, strings, somber guitar notes and swirling electronics. Very soundtrack, very visual, particuarly for fans of Gustavo Santaolalla.
I was tinkering around with this thing in Logic late one night, and had nothing more in mind for it really, when a friend emailed me an audio file of all Bush's compiled mumblings and fumblings from the first debate in '04. (put together by a Randi Rhodes show staffer, I believe) Intrigued, I plopped it down on a track of its own, and the first few bars lined up so perfectly, I just knew it was meant to be. So it's a duet with GWB on Vox & me on my precioussss sea foam green '77 fretless P-bass. (G*D, I love that thing)
i just finished moving my pile of equipment from the garage into the house for winter, and to celebrate i did a special mix of the latest song from the project mentioned here to share with y'all.
An original, campy, Shatner-esque take on a fictional Moon-based Patrol-squad.
A visit to a place with many layers, shades of light, colors. Whose woods these are, I do not know.
Dark ambience with strange, swelling synths. Okay, I admit it, I can't even remember recording this track.
A short journey between the stars
this is a track from my old band noumena... instrumental and moody. give it a listen and if you like you can download a lot more (for free) here: ohler homepage. Note: a lot of people say that they like to make out to this song.
This is a song that was done live on 6/26/2006 at an afterparty here in detroit. the venue was stucco's warehouse. Listen as my audio buffer dies at the end. A proper version will probably come out someday.
