Bring the Chase

Guitar and synth rock, with a certain whiff of the 70s about it, and a comparatively laid back chorus that I'm pretty happy with. Lyrics inside. [more inside]

Millimeters of Mercury (featuring Lanthanide Contraction) — Bulletproof Breakbeat

Amen Break + Synthesizer-Playing Chemistry Major + Guitar-Playing Chemistry Major = We blow roofs off shows like supercritical reactions blew the top off Chernobyl.

Reactance

A new synth program still in progress at the time. I hit 'record' only to consider various knob twiddlings, instead it turned out to be a complete solo. [more inside]

Syncopia

Tension-laden synth piece with analog elements. Expect ticking time-bombs, paranoid running at night, and an unseen enemy catching up with you.

That's the Way it Wiggles

I've been doing a lot of gigs lately, so why not post some of the music here, right? This one is from a jaw harp mini-festival I was part of on March 28, 2010. I'm playing the Vietnamese jaw harp called the Dan Moi, along with a bass line from my JUNO 60 analog synth. Video of this same performance can be seen at YouTube.

Separate My Heart

A little synth-folk ditty, with my friend Alaina singing lead. The idea was to write a murder ballad from the woman's perspective.

ninety second instrumental

Back at work as resident composer for a Tokyo fashion house... this time they want four 90-second instrumental spots, for web presentations. Handed this one in to them the other day, but they nixed it: too dramatic, just not right for the project. So, back to the drawing board. Thought I'd put it here, though, so as not to consign it to the Land of Unheard Music.

Let Me Know

A short, sweet synthpop/r&b jam. I've been listening to Confessions alot lately, and this is sort of my take on the modern r&b genre.

Once It Was The Colour Of Saying (Work In Progress)

This is incomplete and very current WIP from my glacial synth-based alter ego and is perhaps something of a companion piece to White Feather. I'd really appreciate opinions on (a) the pretty drastic transitions in the piece from the rhythmic to the quasi-orchestral and back again, (b) whether the lyric theme has any kind of cheddar whiff, and (c) whether it needs more "oomph" under the orchestral bits (actually difficult to pull off without destroying the mood - I've tried....). Any other comments welcome of course - but this is unfinished and well rough so....geeza break. [more inside]

Enceladus

Originally planned as a mix between 70's J.M. Jarre and Steve Reich. Turns out to be more like Giorgio Moroder teaming with Tangerine Dream, on a bad day. [more inside]

grid flux_1

Filtery drone from my JUNO 60 meets ukulele playing exactly four notes. No verse, no chorus, no changes, no development... just does what it does for 2 minutes and 43 seconds, then stops. It's the soundtrack for a video here.

Olive Fields

I got the idea for this tune while driving through the farmlands of Northern California. Introspective and calming.

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.

Hallelujah (drone version)

Here's my version of the esteemed Mr. Cohen's paean to the religion of love. I dropped the rhythm and chord changes, and made a new melody. The very minimal accompaniment consists of three tracks from my trusty old JUNO 60 analog synth. That's it! Video version (photos by yours truly) at Vimeo and YouTube.

Cambie & Hastings

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.

Oscillendulum 4

Here's another Oscillendulum, once again performed only on my beloved old Roland JUNO 60. About an hour ago I also posted this to YouTube, as a soundtrack for a raft of ducks swimming around in Ueno pond. Yet another Oscillendulum went up on YT a few hours before that, as a soundtrack for a revolving restaurant display. Be the first on your block to see 'em!
