Apples and Walnuts

A few weeks ago I was asked to play at the wedding of some friends. I don't really have anything appropriate, but was (against the odds) able to write something for it. This is it.

totally generic action

To illustrate a point I wanted to make in the Marvel Movie Music thread I started playing around with Kontakt cinematic patches, but by the time I'd finished I'd sort of forgotten what my point was and decided to upload it anyway because I've got no self control at all.

Was It Something I Said?

So I got the guitar to MIDI to work using my VG99.

Grebos In Love

Nasty. Brutish. Shortish. In 5/4.

No Surprises

I downloaded a karaoke file to help find out how the arrangement was put together (although the file I downloaded seems to have some odd deviations from the original track). Somehow I ended up rearranging the tracks and assigning them to string quartet, woodwind, church organ, marimba and dulcimer. And TR808. Not real, of course. I liked the way it sounded enough to keep it. And then I put vocals on it, and I don't know whether it didn't all go (as Satie would put it) au form du poire.

Post War Glamour Girl

My version of the John Cooper Clarke poem. Swearword in the third line, so be warned parents, workers and those of a jumpy disposition. This is the first MeFiMu challenge I've ever completed.

Pablito

Set off by the recent melodica-related post on the blue, my attempt at an Augustus Pablo tune.

Cielo

A short guitar instrumental, written in a convent, during a heat-wave in 2003.

River Rise

A song that was sort of spontaneously written just over ten years ago. One of my sad songs about water.

Pure

A fairly grim song, I suppose, mostly one chord, almost too long to upload here. With strings. And a guitar solo.

Charm

A while ago I posted a song from an old tape-album called It's Amazing What Some People Can Believe, and said I'd tell people when I'd uploaded the whole thing to my website. I forgot. Mea culpa. This is, as it were, the second single.

Gravity

A short song about falling over.

Crazy Baby, Lazy Charlie

In 1993 I spent every weekend between the Spring Bank Holiday recording songs that I'd written on my four-track tape recorder. I'm not sure where they came from. On August Bank Holiday Monday I mixed down the final album - It's Amazing What Some People Can Believe - and copied it onto C90 cassettes. The run almost reached double figures. A raging success, then. This is the first track on Side One. The almost fifteen years' distance allows me to admit that I like it very much.

SeaSong

Cultural Amnesia is a group that I was in during the early 80s and a quarter of a century later we are still, occasionally, doing it. SeaSong is a track we recorded in 2004. We did record some songs earlier this year, but they're not fully buffed up for release yet. There will be a vinyl record of our old stuff released later this year.
