Electronics + Piano. Lots of harmonic and rhythmic drive.
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).

Piano, strings, and electronics on a journey across a strange, wide landscape. [more inside]
Fast catchy tune with a thumping chorus - but the piano takes the star turn in the verses. [more inside]
I can't believe you've done this. Electro-dance-pop. [more inside]
From my new (free!) EP 'Part Time Drum Machine', this is an instrumental keyboard-based track driven forward by a cheap synth bass and Casio-ish beats. A different kind of style than you may have heard from me before. [more inside]
Synth-based dance with a nocturnal air. [more inside]
Flyball battle anthem. Not quite "Eye of the Tiger", to be sure, but you can still turn it up and rock out. Electronic instrumental. [more inside]
More massive amounts of Massive. I think it builds up nicely. Let me know what you think.
I think this is the first song I've posted with a guitar solo not done by Dagosto.
Victoria, BC's inner harbour is the perfect place to go after-hours on a clear night, put on headphones, and dance your face off by the water. Here's a song in honor of silly summer times. [more inside]
Upbeat dancey-trancey music for driving fast and far away (from wherever you want to be far away from). Never mind the meter, you can dance to it!
Short, fun and bouncy, melodic, dancelike-although-odd-metered, all electronic instrumental. Sort of like a lobotomized Dream Theatre interpreted via Kitsune2 would be one way of putting it. [more inside]
Time for a bassline
A fantasy for synthesizers and percussion. [more inside]
Neon nights, bush league frights [more inside]
I have tried a couple of tunes in seven but never in five. So here is a new one for the odd-meter enthusiasts.
Summertime makeout salad with honey-roasted handclaps, balsamic dance vinagrette and a sprinkle of arpeggiator. [more inside]
If you are wondering if this is a Mario Kart reference the answer is YES IT SURE IS

Do you play guitar? If you can play the synth solo that starts at 2:03 I will give you the BIGGEST HUG EVER
I hope that Futurecop doesn't mind that I'm ripping off their style verbatim. I know that I sure don't. This was fun as hell to make.
A more mellowed-out trinket of instrumental dance music for the wistful and introspective; born out of an epic evening of adventure in Vancouver at an intersection of the same name.
Some classic Joni with a heavy injection of DANCE. [more inside]
A new direction for me... Italo-disco-cyberpunk-house-pop?
Another semi-anthemic dance song about dancing with a girl! [more inside]
I'm back from South America for a little bit, so I have an urge to play with my electronic toys. [more inside]
Dance beats and synth hooks underscore the classic breakup story of two digital lovers in Computer Land.
A dancey pop kinda thing. I finished all the recording and rough mixes for my next album so I'm starting to enjoy making music again. Also: trying to be less of a perfectionist so I maybe don't go bonkers.
A simple, melancholy electro instrumental that I recorded a couple of years ago. Percussion ideas came from various hip-hop sources; the melody is my own. I use it as background music during a spoken-word segment of my live shows. [more inside]
Here's a track I made a while ago that I recently took a new stab at. It sounds retrodancey because well, that's all I could sound like back in the day.
Here is a "Mahayana Jazz" track with some tasty drums. I hope you find this delicious and remember to get away from that tree before it dies.
I created this the first time I really fired-up Garageband, sometime in May of 2005. It's a cliche of itself, provoking nostalgia, and makes me laugh out-loud. Hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think!
