...And All Her Angels Are Wolves

The last ā€“ and melodically and harmonically my favorite ā€“ song on the All Her Angels EP. Guess the secret lyrics for the (instrumental) chorus! Or invent your own.

Happy Like a Hand Grenade

A fast, upbeat back-and-forth between piano and synths - the piano gets a little moody but the choruses are simple uplifting fun. It's track 4/5 on the All Her Angels EP.

Nice, Nice

It's track 3/5 on the All Her Angels EP and you can watch a play-through of it as a BeatSaber level too! Has some very pretty piano if I say so myself.

Whatever You Do (Don't Dance)

"It sounds like two forest spirits having a duet" ā€“ and it is track 2/5 on the All Her Angels EP.

Out of Metal and Wire

It's track 5/5 on the Hellish EP, and the highest tempo by a good measure, at a brisk 175bpm with it's own kind of groove.

Uncontrollable

A dance track that goes pretty hard! Your enjoyment might be enhanced by a very basic but very cute animation loop. This is Track 4/5 on the EP. [more inside]

Till The Bells Bring Us Home

High-energy synths and percussion with intertwining, anthemic melodies. (My love of Rush probably shows but it's a pretty straightforward tune.)

Chilliwack

This was a fun one to make. Basically one improvised take on a MIDI keyboard which is hooked up to 3 synths and drum machine, with a pad from a 4rd synth going on in the background. Piano and noise-wave crashes were added afterwards. Using the JX-8P as a bass synth for the first time and gotta say....not too shabby!!!!!! [more inside]

If I Can (You Can Too)

A pretty simple dance tune. I borrowed (well, adapted) a melody, I admit - but it was a 4/4 melody crying out to be in 3/4, and I wanted to set it right. This is track 2/5 on the Hellish EP.

Lush

Got an Arturia Keystep which means I can now program sequences on the JX-8P and baby it is a game changer!!!!!! Marimba sounds are from the Roland SC-88 which is MIDI'd up to the JX-8P as well.

Sand Palace

A cheesy little synth funk tune that I made about a decade ago to accompany a presentation or something. I re-discovered it this morning while cleaning up old files in a google drive.

Energy Ladders

This is a piece that I recorded by triple-tracking myself playing an FM synthesis patch (the "twist" being that it has an extra cosine applied to the modulated signal) written in Pure Data. [more inside]

silhouettes

Cover of a Postal Service song. I'm pretty sure the song is ~actually~ about nuclear war, but the lyrics are weirdly appropriate for the pandemic. [more inside]

ZZ

Doing sort of a Deadmau5-style beat using an old drum machine (Korg S3). I used the noise wave on my Korg Monologue to create the little cymbal swells every couple bars (classic Deadmau5 trick which I have been trying to copy for a while using different methods). The pulsing synth riff is also kind of a Deadmau5 thing. It's weird - I'm not even that much of a fan of the guy but the handful songs of his that I've liked have clearly influenced me a lot.

Brazilian Brooks

Another drum-less synth loop featuring the Roland Sound Canvas SC-88 deploying its absolutely classic harp sample once again! All of the sounds on both this and my last post were made using hardware rather than software which is kind of a first for me in terms of synth tunes! Really enjoying it!

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]

eemz haleemz

so I've been using this songwriting trick where I program a simple loop using the sequencer on my synths and sort of riff off of it to come up with the other instrumental parts. Then, when I have the idea properly fleshed out, I remove the synths. A songwriting scaffold, of sorts (though in many cases I have kept the original loop in there!!!) Anyways, for this track I included the synth loop at the very beginning so you can hear what I'm riffing off of for the rest of the track. Hope you like it!!!! -CA

Special Teams

Tried a bunch of new stuff this time round. It's a dance trance but I played almost everything live, including the drums which were "performed" on the keyboard, because I'm not a drummer. The only things that were automated were the drum fills, crash cymbals, and the marimba/piano 2 patterns.
