En Garde!

Penultimate track from Creature Of Habit in which we find our protagonist brooding over the realization of the previous track, and facing down the Creature.

Purple Majesty/After-Party

The night he died, Prince came to me in a dream. I played electric piano and he played acoustic piano. He had all the best licks, naturally. :-) So I had to do this, even though it's like the Tenacious D song, Tribute. This is not the song I heard in my head, which was a jam in Am. No, this is just a tribute to that song. And it comes with it's own after-party!

Seduction

This track is part of a project that heavily features Swamp XT, a virtual synthesizer by one H. G. Fortune. Working playlist title is "Succubus/Incubus", but I'm looking for other ideas.

Snow Drift

It was snowing and what better to do than mess with the arpeggiator?

Game Night

I just loaded up Ubuntu Studio with some soft synths, and recorded this CarrotAdventure-inspired piece. It came out sounding like a game show theme, hence the name.

Coventry Carol - strings

This medieval English carol is certainly not cheerily optimistic-sounding, but might not quite qualify as pessimistic. "Somber" is better - a mood rarely evoked for Christmas.

March from "The Nutcracker Suite"

If synthesizers were around, would Peter Illich Tchaikowsky have used one?

Community Forklift

Community Forklift is a local non-profit salvage place. They had a jingle contest. My entry came in "a very close second", as voted by their staff. So I guess that means they don't really care about that unlimited license. Vocals by the velvety-voiced Ms. Sharon Raquel. We wanted to try this in a lower key, but ran into the deadline.

Pi Variations

In celebration of Pi Day, I'm posting this play-by-numbers piece.

SynthXploration 1

If this jumps around a little, it's because I was just looking for a way to demo sounds from ZynAddSubFX.

Piano experiment gone horribly wrong.

Wrong Way

My keyboard comes with the typical drum patch. And layering. The two are not intended to be used together. This mercifully short (under 2 min) sketch shows what happens when you go down that one way street the Wrong Way...

Inspired by those grotesque masks.

Anthem For An Ant Colony

In 1987, I wrote this cornball song from the POV of a proud and friendly ant, but never recorded it until now.

Heist Scene

An old favorite genre of film, and part of every good spy flick, is the Heist, the soundtrack to which always goes like this. This scene from our "movie for the ears" music challenge is described inside.

The Worst Decision

Laid-back, blues-inspired pop song for the June '08 lyric challenge. The phrase "life is all about conflicting desires" did not sink in initially. But on further reflection, I understood how this is true. Such conflict can lead to inertia or abdication of choice, resulting in disappointment. I did all the parts on this track: vox, keyboard, drum programming, and electric bass. I'm happy with the music, but the mix needs work. Dedicated to Jessamyn, of course (for what became the bridge). Lyrics inside.
