I’ve been recording songs on my iPad. Apps used on this one: Audiobus, Loopy, Samplr, 76 Synthesizer, Figure, and Garageband. Also, a Walden acoustic guitar and a Blue Snowball microphone.
I've been writing short songs for my friends' birthdays. This is one of them.
A jaunty little ditty created on the Korg DS-10.
Because my girlfriend's little nephew lives so far away, we've decided to create an educational video podcast to keep in touch. These are two original songs we made up for Warrencast Episode 01: CAR.
My good friend Dan Huff came to visit last week, and he brought copies of his new album. Dan is the most prolific songwriter and music maker I know, and absolutely one of my greatest influences. Writing and recording can be daunting tasks for normal musicians, but Dan has a love for music so intense that no barrier ever stands in his way. If Dan Huff can record an entire album in the back of his truck, then there are no excuses for the rest of us. Nothing should get between the artist and the audio tape. That's why Dan's newest album is so important. You can listen to some samples on his myspace page, but he's given me permission to post the album in its entirety on the internet, and I think you Mefites would be particularly interested in listening to it.
At micayetoca's request, here is my take on Elvis Presley's Poison Ivy League. As a special bonus, here's me playing ukulele!
Jonathan Richman cover, as learned from They Might Be Giants.
This is a little composition I did in MIDI some years ago, which I found recently and opened in GarageBand. If anyone is interested in playing it on some real instruments, I'd be happy to provide the original MIDI file, which you could probably print out as sheet music if you are crafty enough.
Jumping in on the music challenge to cover a song in a language you don't speak. I have no idea what I am saying in this song.
Going electric for the first MeFi music challenge. Enjoy. (By the way, everything I know about beatboxing, I learned from Tom Waits.)
This is an old one, but a lot of folks say it's their favorite. So here it is on MeMu for the first time.
We're approaching three weeks of sickness here, and the lousy demos keep coming. This song was written by my good friend Dan Huff, who penned Seattle Suxxx and sang the backup vocals on Cromwell.
Half inspired by a Chuck Palahniuk book I read in high school, half inspired by an overabundance of free time. My last song was 50 seconds long, this one clocks in at over 6 minutes (you know, to balance things out). And for those of you playing along at home, you'll be happy to know I'm kicking mono's ass.
Sorry for this one. Sometimes things just come out of my mouth...
This quick demo was made on my pocket tape recorder right after I had finished writing the song, and I was really pleased with the way it sounds... like it's a recording from a long time back.
A cover of a song by my good friend Dan Huff. This is from back when I played with a band called I Need Sleep.
Just something I was playing with.
Just recorded a rough demo of this new love song for Edie Sedgwick.
Washboard beat, acoustic guitar, a little piano, some singin'. Listen for my dog bark in the background.
Written to weird out my history teacher, this song is about Oliver Cromwell and the decapitation of King Charles I of England.
