A Small Grey Box Filled With Joy

I made this upbeat, major-key, low-fi-sounding jam entirely on my OP-1, the same gizmo used in these videos. The transitions aren't as good as they could be, but they're definitely a level up for me. The whole thing falls apart at the end in a glorious heap. A good LET'S GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY instrumental.

My Heart as Your Home

My good friend and music senpai Jeremy Blake wrote and recorded a song called "My Heart as Your Home" that I immediately fell in love with. I recently got a chance to record a cover of it with my younger brother. He played ukelele and sang the lead; I did all the arrangement, production, and backup vocals. I think it turned out really nicely.

Wear your Pixel-Socks to the Digi-Hop

Kinda of a bleepy-bloopy little instrumental jam. I'm really kind of fond of this one.

Dream Job: Music Producer, 3-2-1 Contact, 1982

What happened was this: I discovered an Ableton tutorial about how to create a pretty convincing shitty-old-tape effect, and then I upgraded my phone to iOS 7 and heard the new ringtones (which are actually really nice), and then I started noodling around, and I made a little thing of which I am unreasonably fond.

You're My Only Home

A cover of Magnetic Fields' "You're My Only Home," recorded entirely on a Teenage Engineering OP-1.

Butterfly Nets

This is a cover of Bishop Allen's "Butterfly Nets." While the song is a favorite of teenage girls on with ukeleles on Youtube, I am instead a 34-year-old baritone with Garageband and an OP-1.
