Crossing Over

A short poem spoken with keyboard, percussion, and guitar Darkness falls in the middle of the day, We look to the sky and lord we pray, Darkness grows near, And all those who are dear, Floods the lands with tears, Not a moment to soon, For all men are destin for doom, Come cross over, All are welcome

ripples

Only tangentially related to the theme of the challenge, but my testing audience thought the song sounded like ripples, and that seemed like enough (plus it motivated me to finish sooner than I might have!).

Sister

First song ever written, and completed. Written/recorded in 2 hours flat. Fishing for feedback.

I Like Hat

Acapella sample, killer synth, creepy fembot vocals. A song about hats.

23rd Century

Here's a track from my album about wanting to be a robot. I figure lots of you folks can probably relate. My band is currently touring the east coast, with dates in VA, NC, WV, MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, and VT. Details inside!

American Dreams

Mix Master Mike frequently samples the intro to Killing In The Name for his sets. I decided to sample the outro, where Zach de la Rocha is yelling "ALL OF WHICH ARE AMERICAN DREAMS". The bass line is spliced out of Evil by Interpol since Carlos Dengler has got some crazy tone. This is a pretty slow jam, so it borders on the line between hip-hop and dance. Enjoy.

Ten Thousand Waves

An electronic track I did in my room at Ten Thousand Waves, outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. Influences include Boards of Canada, Nathan Fake, and a little Aphex Twin. There's a longer description here.

Sythoholics Anonymous

A night long bender on sythohol. Starts out peaceful enough, but once the party gets started control is hard to maintain. An Episode production

The Choir Song (two thousand seven mix)

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.

Seams (vocoder bringdown edition)

A recording from 2004 of a song from 1998. I really like vocoders: I think that they are very awesome. More inside!

Going back to my roots: Here's a techno-diddley straight outta Air Deutschland.

Nashville

Technically not a song performed by me, but a song done by 2 of my good friends which was tracked (mostly) and mixed by me. I'm posting this because I've got a 1:30 remix of the song I did, and I want to post that. I figured it'd be nice to have context.

Oscillendulum 1

This is one of a series of short pieces (about 10 or 12) I recorded using only a JUNO 60 analog synth (found at a Tokyo junk shop for only 10,000 yen!). The Oscillendulums all share a similar structure (gradual addition and/or subtraction of layered repeating parts), with an eye toward the creation of a sort of liquid polyrhythm. I also had in mind the musical approximation of animal sounds such as frog and insect choruses from a pond, which are part of the inspiration for this series.

Blues Wrapped Round My Head

In a slow count of 5, here's some kind of convergence of Burma and the blues, or thereabouts. "scissors cut paper / paper blows away / stone smashes scissors / and so it goes / another day / but it's all downhill from here / at least that's what sisyphus said /ah you're fucked six ways from sunday / with the blues wrapped round your head"

Ending

I'm thinking this will be the outro to my first album, or possibly come right before the final song.

Long Night and Nothing to Do

I wrote this song in one night for a school assignment that was due the next day. The music was really just flowing out of me. I don't even remember writing most of this because I was so tired. It was created to be a score for a 9-minute short film that I made, but it's grown on me so much that I've decided to include it on my first album. It does need some work, though: the mixing is way off in some areas (and even distorted) and it's way too long to include on an album.

Take Me There

If I was to describe this song with sarcastic overtones, I would say this is a regular run-of-the-mill ageispolis techno song. Well, it's not. This song is anything but typical of what I usually produce. Vocals, emotion, melody, structure... christ, what's gotten into me!?

Glow

I made this song last summer (2006). It has the usual synth and drum machine, as well as the addition of a little guitar. Very fast-paced, yet relaxed. Oh, and, of course, it'll someday (maybe) have lyrics.

Aware

Very atmospheric. This song will always remind me Christmas, as I wrote most of it during the month of December. Just like my previous track, this will also have vocals someday.

Undefined

Out of several tunes in various states of completion for the RPM project, this is the most presentable. In use for this track are: voice, talking drum, bells (metal and wooden), guiro, synth bass and organ. Every so often I write a song which is overtly political (a protest song, for want of a better term), and this is one of them.

Unknown

One of the better songs I have lined up for my first album (which is still in its early stages). Heavy drums, synth, happiness. Also, this is my first post to MeFi Music.

Montage

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.

The Reddish Egret

Egret's (of the Reddish variety) are musically inspiring. This track is divided by two tempo changes (see if you can spot them!) and is thus in three parts. I figure a bird as cool as the Reddish Egret deserves a musical trilogy. Also, the high-pitched vocal sample is actually a rendering of the last note Thom Yorke sings on the opening track of The Eraser.

Before It Dies

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.

Until You Kiss Me

"i blew across the great plains like a plastic bag / from the broken heart of town to the dock of the bay / there ain't that much to say about the wide wide world / people everywhere just sleepwalk in their own little way / and ain't no hope of waking up / until you kiss me babe"

Party People (Get On the Dancefloor)

This is a recently recorded song that'll probably go on my next release. I'm not sure yet about the mix, but I guess it's good enough in its current state for a spin around the MeFi block. Party down y'all. [lyrics inside]</small]

2012 Overture

Inspired by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture", I constructed a beginning synth composition and then borrowed the climatic final progression for the conclusion of my piece.

1982

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!

Three Dimensional

Absolutely ridiculous synth-and-spoken-word composition I recorded to cut my teeth on Reason.

Snakey

This is a song I did in 1995 with my band Verge on the album Little Idiot. This recording is entirely the product of the studio, but we would play it live too. (We'd drag out a lot of gear that would barely function at times to do just that...) We made this recording in the basement of my loft (at the time, sigh) in Williamsburg sometime between 1993 and 1995, sequencing it on a Mac IIci computer with no sampling or digital audio though we did record onto a digital 8-track tape recorder (remember "tape"?) so the guitar solos and voice and synth and things are pretty well as they occurred.

SeaSong

Cultural Amnesia is a group that I was in during the early 80s and a quarter of a century later we are still, occasionally, doing it. SeaSong is a track we recorded in 2004. We did record some songs earlier this year, but they're not fully buffed up for release yet. There will be a vinyl record of our old stuff released later this year.

Pipey

Just a little thing I did with Garage Band and my M-Audio Keystation. I think it'd make a good title screen for a video game.
