desert island

February 28th, 2009

desert island This beat was originally just an exercise with side chain compression, using Reason 4.  It samples the Microphones on the drum track, and also some Kraftwerk keyboards.

Dark As A Dungeon

February 26th, 2009

Dark As A Dungeon This song was an experiment with acoustic recording, vocal harmony, and singing. It features a guitar, three voice tracks, and a ukulele. I didn’t plan the vocal harmonies beforehand. Instead I punched in and out a lot until I found something that I liked. I’m glad I don’t have to mine […]

What a Shot

February 19th, 2009

Poodleface – What a Shot – video (mp4 download) Watch this video on YouTube My attempts at cobbling together a song for this week’s Hellagem were unsuccessful, so I decided instead to revisit a piece I originally composed for the 2007 Atlanta Laptop Battle preliminaries.

toad in the black hole

February 16th, 2009

Welcome To Our City The perfect song exists outside of time, floating in the ether. It is an ever receding target. It takes two steps away for my every one, and hides behind the trees of self-doubt, and perfectionism. The only way to catch a glimpse of that beast is to forget that it exists. […]

I’m in Luv (Wit a Tiny Dancer)

February 12th, 2009

“I’m in Luv (Wit a Stripper)” by T-Pain vs. “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John tiny stripper I had the idea for this mashup a while ago, and at that point the idea was mostly conceptual (stripper/dancer).  It wasn’t until I first overlayed the two songs that I realized how perfectly they fit together.  They have […]

Oh well, here’s an artistically dubious messing-around with a sample. It’s Elmer fudd for like 30 seconds. fudd Also, here’s a picture I draw with my new drawing tablet. Still trying to figure out how to use it. It’s kind-of a dog that’s a crab or something.
