Tough Love Black Eye

Punk, metal, jazz, slack, folk and noise. This pretty much typifies the grab bag that was my band, Big Ghost. Like trying to get Pavement and RHCP to agree on California rock. It's a mess, but it was our kinda mess. [more inside]

And the Sunrise Welcomes You Home

A short instrumental piece (featuring synth) in which I basically have fun building from a loop. This is my entry for the MeFi Music challenge to submit music inspired by a MeFi post (I Saw This Thing On The Blue And...). Credit actually goes to three MetaFilter-related posts from last month: two MeFi posts by not_on_display and one MeFi Music post by ignignokt; they inspired me to create electronic music again after a decade+ hiatus.

A Small Grey Box Filled With Joy

I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental. [more inside]

Mouth of the Coldest Seas

A tribute to the ancient hidden source of all cold seas and those that watch over it. With vocals by my friend who sings in an actual early music choir! It's also got square waves, organs, and sometimes ambiguous chords.

my idea 21

Quick song recorded this morning on Music Memo with (automatically added) bass and drums, and some synthesizers and (fair warning) voice-cracking singing. [more inside]

You're So Dangerous!

An upbeat ditty about falling in love, blah blah blah. Cobbled together during my currently-on-hiatus 52 weeks project. Inspired by Holiday-era Magnetic Fields. [more inside]

Embark!

I figured out how to use the arpeggiator on my op1 (actually the 'endless' sequencer). Brings to mind seeing out from the home village on an epic quest.

Return to Maridia

My train rides lately have been spent either a) playing with my synthesizer, or b) playing through Super Metroid on my phone. This captures pretty nicely the feeling of wandering a submerged subterranean maze, looking for secret side tunnels while kinda low on life (though with a couple energy tanks in reserve).

Goblin Rip-off please help

At 0:32 I start ripping off a Goblin riff and I can't find the song that I am ripping off. It's not off of Roller or Profondo Rosso... Any insight would be appreciated.

3 kids on the square

the big synth at the beginning is live-performed on a Roland JX-8P on the patch called "Van Halen"!!!

savory for me

Just an experiment of guitar electronic fusion I've been playing with. I'm planning on doing an album-full of these types of songs soon.

You Can't See It

My son asked me to record his heartbeat for some school thing a few months ago. I had this heartbeat lying around so I added some Moog to it and Bob's your uncle it became a synthpop song.

A Legacy Denied

Finally finished my latest project, VOIDBREAKER. Ominous space synths, gritty breakbeats and a consciously gritty production. This is the fourth track from the EP just released on Spotify. [more inside]

Blank Maps (Cold Specks cover)

Got a MIDI controller, which I'm superdy duper excited about, and figured I'd put it to work by fulfilling Greg Nog's Mefi Cover Challenge, covering Cold Specks' Blank Maps. Quick 'n dirty.

Pool Rules

A loud, frenetic jam in F#, dancing between half-time/double-time, with synth slap bass!

a new kind of beat

No drum beat or melody. Just some interlocking synth arps. For the Sunday crowd.

I just loaded up Ubuntu Studio with some soft synths, and recorded this CarrotAdventure-inspired piece. It came out sounding like a game show theme, hence the name. [more inside]

Lama (Malcolm Holmes' OMD Remix) by @Ummagma

Just as the seasons can see a categorical change in all the features embodied in this one unifying phenomenon we call 'the weather', so too can a song be totally turned on its head from the original version, doing a near about-face.... that is what happened to this track in this remix by Malcolm Holmes, famous for his participation in legendary synthpop group Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD).

Road Race

Instrumental with big tunes and riffs, and a driving cadence that's perfect for cycling (especially if the weather should force you to ride indoors). Bandcamp download (with artwork).

Bivball Instrumental

This is a short song I wrote to accompany my brother's ad for his new iphone game. (Bivball is the name of the game). Fun project with short turnaround. It's a little clunky, but on the one millionth listen it suddenly levels up to "pretty good" (try it, you'll see). Comments welcome. Thanks for listening.

Men's Retreat

New recording of an old song with the following Garageband synths: "hip hop kit", "pop flute" and "shimmering harpsichord" (IIRC). Song about good friends who have, by now, all moved away. I'd love any thoughts on this. [more inside]

Paranoid Shepard

This is an endlessly rising Radiohead cover vignette; a section from Paranoid Android rises a whole step and repeats itself, and does so again, six times total, before returning to where it started, as a kind of large-scale take on the Shepard tone. [more inside]
