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.

Happy Birthday William

William is 4 years old and a big fan of synthy dance-pop. His parents are so cool that they commissioned a song for his birthday today! Happy birthday William! Let's count to 4!

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.

1E99 Feat. Gretchen - I'm Cool (DangerLegs Remix)

Trying to capture a Deadmau5-style beat. Discovered the vocal sample quite serendipitously and was quite surprised at how well it meshed with the existing track. I had to modify very little to make them work together - didn't even have to change the key, a nice coincidence.

An anthemic Summer Dance Jam of Friendship! Featuring The Internet's own Blazin Hazen spitting friendly, supportive rhymes, as well as MeFi's own guitar legend Dagosto shredding yet another savage solo.

Lutra

I tried to make a Drum'n'Bass track, with comical results. in less than 30 seconds the song turns from what could be a legitimate DnB offering into ultra-silly 80s synth lunacy. Oh well.

Star Dream

Smoothy, dreamy chillout vibes with gently gliding arpeggios swirling over luscious synth chords. Think Futurecop meets Mike Oldfield.
