  • New Year

    New Year

    07/12/2004 Duration: 02min

    I've never really felt that interested in celebrating the new year. It's ... tomorrow! Hooray! So, trying to find some meaning in the occasion, and noticing there are not that many songs about this widely celebrated holiday, I wrote a song of my own. I wanted to make sure I got it done in time for this year's New Year celebration, and I believe I accomplished that goal. Yep, I did.

  • Tetelestai

    Tetelestai

    11/11/2004 Duration: 03min

    The aforementioned Porthos wrote some lyrics to a song he was working on and posted them, wondering what sort of music they might evoke in others. So me and Drewsef and (the aforementioned) Hobbes, that very night, all recorded our own versions. As they were all done in an evening or so, they are not well-polished, but the results are good. Go to Porthos' Tetelestai page to find out more and hear the other versions.

  • Caves of Steel

    Caves of Steel

    29/10/2004 Duration: 02min

    A song I wrote in high school and recorded in college, and have now re-recorded. It's very different for me, as it is entirely electronic, except for the vocals, which have heavy electronic effects too. I booted up the song on an old LCII in EA's Deluxe Music Recorder, exported the MIDI, plopped it on a floppy disc, and then imported it into Logic. Then I re-recorded the vocals, tightened up the MIDI, and kept tweaking the sounds and effects until I was relatively happy with it. The track uses lots of Logic plugins, including the EVD6 (clavinet, for harp), EVOC20 (vocoder, for robot voices), ES2 (synth for guitar and lead) and EXS24 (sampler for bass, strings, drums), and Space Designer for various reverbs (I especially like the metal room sound on the chorus).

  • Johnny Got Suspended

    Johnny Got Suspended

    02/07/2004 Duration: 01min

    An update of "Johnny Got Suspended" by The Zambonis, substituting the Yankees and Red Sox for the Islanders and Rangers, which I wrote because I was very angry after the Yankees won a thirteen-inning game where the Sox scored in the top half of the 13th. I know there's quite a bit of clipping, and that frankly some of the playing sucks, but a. my US-122 is in the shop so I recorded with the built-in iMac mic, and b. it was 2 a.m., and I didn't feel like redoing it. I kinda like how raw it sounds.

  • Political Science

    Political Science

    16/04/2004 Duration: 01min

    This is just vocals and piano, in an unauthorized performance of Randy Newman's classic. I wanted to mess around with recording the Yamaha digital piano, and vocals, so this was the result.

  • Crossroads

    Crossroads

    10/04/2004 Duration: 01min

    Three loops of the blues standard Crossroads, to compare old Epistrat sound (in the left speaker) to new (in the right). I like the new one better. Drum loop, and MIDI for electric bass.

  • Sunshine

    Baby on vocals, Daddy on guitars and harmonica. MIDI for bass and cowbell. Loop for drums.

  • GarageBand Demo

    GarageBand Demo

    27/01/2004 Duration: 38s

    Just playing around with the built-in loops and amp and synth. Before I had the Oxygen8 and Tascam US-122, so used Yamaha YPR-9 for MIDI and iMic for guitar.

    A lament about people who refuse to do some research before asking questions.

  • Actions Speak Louder Than Words

    Actions Speak Louder Than Words

    01/06/1990 Duration: 04min

    Disciple was the band I was in, in the late 80s and early 90s. We played a bunch of shows in the Livermore/Pleasanton area in California. Disciple was Chris Wilson (Hobbes) on guitar, Robbie Miller on drums, Ian Shaeffer on bass, and me on guitar. This track was recorded in a studio for a compilation tape for the Valley Musicians Network (VrMN). Track #2. It's the only Disciple recording that I am not on; I was in Houston for the summer. Hobbes is on lead vocals and my guitar part is simple, so they didn't need me anyway! You can see videos of Disciple too!
