Samphire Dub

A minimal dub jam. I put together the rhythm and melody in Nanostudio on my iPad while cruising the South Pacific over Christmas. Added the bass and lead guitar when I got home in Garageband. It makes me happy, mostly.

Atriplex - The Award is Varied

A little deep-glitch piece, getting back into the swing of things.

Some shifting noise and randomness.

Atriplex - Diplomatic Relationship with China

Something a bit slow, dark, broody and noisy.

Atriplex - Order 240

Some more space music, a little majestic and melodic this time.

A little space music, with random satellite transmissions.

Stacking Blocks

A late-night drone piece, composed from the manipulation of a single sample.

Atriplex - Don't Cross the Beams

A few minutes of crazy space noise and strange particle interactions.

Quasar

I've just discovered Buzz. I had heard of it before, but never tried it; I moved straight from traditional trackers to Fruity Loops / Audiomulch. But now I think I'm hooked, and this is my first effort in it, a bleepy little beat.

Gas Giant

Some light-stepping chilled out beats, inspired by the Portishead mix linked by isopraxis, and sampling a bar or two of Holst's "Jupiter".

Running

After reading this Wikipedia entry in songs in unusual time signatures, I decided to try to put together a piece along the same lines. Except all the various rhythm and instrumental parts have different time signatures, including free time. Oh well.

Cold Front

Music for unseasonable weather.

Gawler Line

My old daily journey in the rain; some twisted ambience.

Sum Yung Punk

A little adventure into some left-field drum'n'bass. Strangely enough, when this song started out, I intended it to be a little ambient-melodic piece for my four-month old. Pretty early, though, it just screamed out for a beat...

Neuron

Schitzy, glitzy music from the centre of your CPU.

Waltz #2

Extremely weird shoegazer "Cortex made me do it" version.

Perfect Gun

Some deep, plodding minimalist electronica. Another tracking effort. Even so, I don't think I constrained myself enough - I could probably leave some more beats out...

Digitally Raped

Some nasty noise, integrating samples composed from segments of executable files, spectral synthesis, and other bad sounding stuff.

Like a Sunrise featuring Diane Jessurun

I went looking for some Creative Commons acapellas to muck around with, and this is the result - something a bit trip-hop and soulful, based on this vocal performance from Diane Jessurun. I'm not too unhappy with the result. CC2006.

Banksia marginata

Chilled beats, just a little bit prickly around the edges. An old song, but I'm thinking of making an album of tracks with botanical names.

Subliminal Criminal

A few years back, I experimented with putting together some electronic dub. I wasn't very good at it - I could never get it quite as mindblowing and deep and luscious as I wanted it to be, probably because I was relying on my own original source material rather than messing with samples. But here's a track anyway. I probably wouldn't call the end result "dub", but it's not bad.

Empty Spaces

Dark ambience with strange, swelling synths. Okay, I admit it, I can't even remember recording this track.

Monsoon

Something sweet and mellow to watch the rain by. Hot off the press.

Luna Iridia

Something mellow and electronic. Soft synths. Sleep music.

Take it Down

Remember MODs? Trackers? I still like to compose in them sometimes - it can be fun to work within the constraints of the format, and see how much music you can fit in a tiny file. The source file for this glitchy track comes in at 58k.

Call 0600

Some boppy electronic pop. Inspired by chip tunes.

Engine Soundtrack

An early (circa 1999) experiment with fuzzed out guitars and a super-compressed mix, pushing ambient towards industrial. Psycho-shoegazer?

Mad House

Spooky beats, sharpened knives, with a madman on that ol' church organ.

Nil By Mouth

A big machine is rolling up behind you in the dark. Creepy ambience.

Surface Waters

Drifting across the waves. Some live experimental guitar ambience.
