Kingsfold

Another swing at this old folk song. My first effort with 2x Korg DS-10s.

Mss Ffct

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.

Portable Acid

Something a bit shorter and more polished with the Korg DS-10 Nintendo DS synth.

Wilson's Hill

My Korg DS-10 Synthesizer arrived yesterday so I took it and my Nintendo DS to Wilson's Hill to play.

Ibot Ubot Robot Nobot

An upbeat synthy breaksy tune. The final version of what previously sounded like this, but with samples stripped out for a cleaner effect.

Ibot Ubot Robot Nobot (Mighty Stealthy mix)

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.

Bozboz

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.

Noetic

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.

Profiling

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.

Grendel

Sort of strived for emotional content with this one. If the first part is asking questions, the second is not liking the answers.

Did you ever play Columns for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive?

Blah blah blah (cover version)

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*!

Nurse I've Done it Again (Return to the A&E Department)

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.

Kingsfold

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.

All The Things... (...I've Stuck up my Arse, Ode to an A&E Nurse)

N.b. A&E is British for Emergency Room.

Best Laid Plans

Samples come from an interviewee recalling experiences from the great depression.

True Skool (Lestrade 1440 rpm mix)

This is a remix of Coldcut's True Skool featuring Roots Manuva that I did for a remix competition a while ago.

The Parade at Bobbleton

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.

Savage Engineering (Hibernation Sickness)

Sometimes breaks, samples and dirty synths are reason enough. Lestrade.

Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls (Live Mix)

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.

Pebbledash

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.
