Another swing at this old folk song. My first effort with 2x Korg DS-10s.
I grabbed a second copy of the Korg DS-10 synth in order to sync with the first copy and make richer and/or more elaborate tunes. This is my first stab. It wasn't til I'd finished it I realised I'd basically subconsciously covered the Mass Effect theme.
A birthday present for my girlfriend a year or two ago.
There's a way in at the back. It sounds better inside.
Something a bit shorter and more polished with the Korg DS-10 Nintendo DS synth.
My Korg DS-10 Synthesizer arrived yesterday so I took it and my Nintendo DS to Wilson's Hill to play.
An upbeat synthy breaksy tune. The final version of what previously sounded like this, but with samples stripped out for a cleaner effect.
Found on the same CD as the last tune I uploaded, this is a forgotten remix to what I guess is one of my main tunes (I'll upload that later by way of comparison). I actually prefer this version now, though the strings at the end are laid on a bit thick.
Found this on an old CD, but it's about as good as anything else I've done so I'm sticking it out there. A simple, upbeat jungle-technoy thing with layered breakbeats and a nasty synth lead dominating the second half.
1. of or pertaining to the mind. 2. originating in or apprehended by the reason. The first completed track of a new Lestrade collection called Flights of Theory.
Rob da Bank played this on his Radio 1 show in 2005, so it's my most successful track by a factor of about 1,000,000. I hope you like it.
Sort of strived for emotional content with this one. If the first part is asking questions, the second is not liking the answers.
Bagatelle with a capital b, e, l, l. In the same family as Sam's Company. 44 seconds.
Did you ever play Columns for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive?
This is a pointless instrumental cover version of Meatbomb's recent a capella (one extreme to the other), Blah blah blah for the MeFi Music challenge, so now you can sing along to the tune*!
The sequel to All The Things... (...I've Stuck up my Arse, Ode to an A&E Nurse), the dark middle act of the A&E trilogy. Watch your bassbins.
The English folk tune Kingsfold rendered very simply in synths. Incidentally, it is also the tune to the hymn I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, and almost identical to the Irish folk song, Star of County Down. The melody occurs elsewhere in European folk music, I believe.
N.b. A&E is British for Emergency Room.
Samples come from an interviewee recalling experiences from the great depression.
This is a remix of Coldcut's True Skool featuring Roots Manuva that I did for a remix competition a while ago.

I wrote this in 2004 as a goodbye to the web-game, Game Neverending, which I'd been really into in the preceding period. Bobbleton was probably the most popular location in the game. At the time I was also interested in the chip-music aesthetic of 32-bit games consoles and the work of Nobuo Uematsu and this track was a sort of experiment in trying to achieve that aesthetic without using the consoles themselves.
Plinky plunky pianoky. Lestrade.
Sometimes breaks, samples and dirty synths are reason enough. Lestrade.
Nice to interpret Godspeed You Black Emperor! electronically - exciting! Thought it'd be fun to close my first gig with a climactic cover version, so I prepared this. Though I don't think anyone spotted it was a cover, it went down a treat. By Lestrade.
I've produced a few versions of this track, but this one, the eldest, is still my favourite for the skyward tangent just after the three minute mark. A Lestrade recording.
