Untitled Winter Song

December 31st, 2008

jn-untitled I was planning on writing lyrics and singing but I ran out of time so I will probably post this again in the future with some buttery vocals. I used a few tracks that I recorded with my micro korg, ableton to make as real sounding drums as I could, and 2 VST instruments […]

Robert DeNyro

December 31st, 2008

nyro_rough Here’s a rough track. I just pieced it together, so there are some unwanted pops and the mix is not as smooth and tight as I would like it to be. I made it as a collaboration between records, Korg ESX-1, my mind, and Pro Tools. I experimented with some creamy side chain compression, […]

no weird remix

December 29th, 2008

I know I am half an hour early technically speaking, but I bet I’ll forget on the actual day, so here y’are. download

As usual, my hellagem snuck up on me. After the Biloxi madness and the requisite Christmas visits, I found it was Sunday already (and because I consider Hellagems to be based on the West Coast, I also consider this to be on time as far as Pacific Standard Time goes, so neener). Lindsey, who is […]

mushroom dance party

December 27th, 2008

mushroom_dance I really wanted to have an actual song and not just do some editing in ableton, but I actually got lazy, nor was I alone enough to feel comfortable singing to my heart’s content, so I ended up doing something quick and dirty. Ryan mentioned the tweakbench plugins so I decided to download them […]

Jubilee 2

December 26th, 2008

The day I finally figured out how to have smoothly varying tempo in my ChucK improvisations: jubilee2 Merry Christmas, everyone!

Within this post there are two tracks, both are RAP BEATS, Merry Christmas: grad night This RAP BEAT includes guitars, synths, and drums.  The story surrounding this beat is about a wild high school grad party.  This is the instrumental. doubleyeti This beat was also made on Reason.  It is a combination of hard edged […]

Beyonce Bells

December 24th, 2008

HO HO HO Merry Christmas Everyone! When I first heard Beyonce’s chart-topper “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)” it sounded quite Christmasy to me.  I suspect that was part of their intention, but I have been informed that the song came out before Thanksgiving, so maybe they were not attempting to make subliminal references […]

Shadow in the Woods

December 24th, 2008

MW – Shadow in the Woods This song is not completed, but this deadline will be a good stopping place, so I can sit back and evaluate. This song is a product of practice in a few different areas of song writing and production. First of all it is an attempt at making more interesting […]

hecksa wet

December 22nd, 2008

hey all I made this song on Ableton. I also used Tweakbench plug-ins. Rosie mentioned the glitch plug-in which I never used before so I decided to over use it. I have become an abuser of compressors as you can probably tell. A lady told me the other day that she drinks her own pee so […]
