A downtempo dance tune... I think. Yep.
An atmospheric interlude that briefly teases a song, written for my unborn son. I tried to convey a feeling of floating around in an amniotic sac with brief moments of activity that go away as quickly as they appear.
A jazzy version of the Inspector Gadget theme song. Apologies in advance if it gets stuck in your head.
A nightmarish take on children's music. I always imagine myself stuck in a carnival funhouse being chased around by evil clowns when I listen to this. From 1995 and one of the first songs I ever wrote. Some completely out of control layering towards the end!
A quiet acoustic diddy. Written for my old band, The Big Lie, by my former bandmate, Chris Knott.
Lounge jazz. That'll do.
I worked on this with a friend a couple years ago. It's a bit shakey... but it's done. Slight delay at the beginning.
More music from Chris Knott. He plays everything on this. I helped clean up the mix.
Folkish rock that may just rip your face off. This is another song from my friend that I helped produce. Good stuff, I swear! *not responsible for said defacing...
"The Masons bought 'U' the other day. Now there's a lotta words that we can't say." Let Steve and Chris from the Nude Dancer Explosion tell you about them. Plus a totally rockin' acoustic guitar solo. (Slightly NSFW... in a bad word kinda way)
Samsara: The eternal cycle of birth, suffering, death, and rebirth. A song from my very first band in 1999. I played keys, synths and added some backup vocals at the end. It was also my first experiment with home recording. Considering we only used a couple of SM57's, a mixer from the 80's and a PC... I think it turned out pretty good!
Easy going, pop rockin' goodness. Like many folks posting here, this is one of my old band's songs. This one in particular was written by my good friend (and then bandmate) Chris Knott - who recently moved to NYC with his band, Commas.
Halo inspired trance for your Saturday night dance party. I started this one three years ago and finally finished it this afternoon. I don't write for this genre very often, so let me know what you think!
An simple instrumental piece I've been meaning to finish up since 2003. MeFi music inspired me to get it done tonight. Enjoy.
A simple message, left too late.
A subdued synthetic rock/instrumental track by me. If you like Sigur Ros, you might like this.
Picture yourself experiencing an earthquake in slow motion. The eerie calm beforehand leading up to the main event itself. Relax and let yourself live through this instrumental story all the way to the finale. Sprinkled with memories of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."
A hauntingly mellow groove highlighted by Sylvia Plath's "Mushrooms" as performed by the poet herself.
A quiet electronica piece I wrote not too long ago. This is music to chill out too. It gets the job done.
