Lorraine

another short-form pop demo w/vox.... struggling to get the lyrics, 2nd verse and overall phrasing ironed out, so wanted to crank out the demo at least so I can move onto something else for a while.

Piano Sketch #2 (meditation)

The only song I have ever written & recorded start-to-finish while living on a boat. Thanks to the Carnival Imagination for having slack enough security that I was able to sneak onto the showband keyboard after-hours to record this (2006)

Howdy & P's Excellent Adventure

Track 6 from the Yabra EP, which you can stream and download for free here. Yabra is Patrick Staples (synth, vox, guitar, bass, programming) and myself. Guest vox by JiaJia Li. Enjoy the ride!

Targets

This is another sparse, experimental piece. A solo synth arpeggiator is cycled through a given set of notes and cut off at random before the next iteration off the cycle begins. Because of the simple chord progression & the patch's programming to produce an ostinato on the last-played note in the sequence, and because the sequence is always cut off at certain rhythmic intervals, a specific set of tones is isolated, creating a short, diatonic tone row. The separation between iterations was randomized to create space and add interest.

dance23

At 2:36 I quote a song that my parents always used to play growing up. I think it is a Tears for Fears song but I'm not sure. If anyone could ID this song for me I would be really grateful, it's an awesome song but I have no idea where to find it, I haven't heard it in years. Bit of a guitar feature on this one Cheers CA

Ithaca

Another arp-based minimalist bedroom-pop nostalgia caprice

Waiting on a Toadstool

A long-form minimalist sketch. Just some nice chords over a nice synth & lots of reverb, looped for a long time. A chance to enjoy the wonderful sparkly sound of the DX10 without other instruments getting in the way. Good for reading/studying.

Baidom (Lieutenant Walt Mix)

A collaboration between myself and my old friend Walt Fleming (either formerly or currently the keyboardist of Calgary Pirate-Metal band Verbal Deception). Original MIDI composed by me & sent to Walt, who assigned synth sounds and somehow found the perfect formula of riffs, beeps & boops to layer on top. An artifact from our high-school days when we had a side project together called the Math Rangers. Walt was one of those strange, crazy, self-taught musical geniuses whose work inexplicably ends up dwelling in obscurity. I thought that this track, at the very least, should be heard.

Cloudbusting (Kate Bush Cover)

A male-vox take on an old classic. "Safety and danger are threaded through the song, via both a thoughtful lyric and a compulsive cello-driven melody. Even more startling, but hardly surprising, is the ease with which Bush was able to capture the moment when a child first realizes that adults are fallible." - Amy Hanson

Midnight Harbour Dance

Victoria, BC's inner harbour is the perfect place to go after-hours on a clear night, put on headphones, and dance your face off by the water. Here's a song in honor of silly summer times.
