Kugelblitz

Not as metal as the title might suggest… rather melodic, really…

Circuit Bent

Around ten or twelve years ago, back in the 20-oughts, I went through a brief period of acquiring and exploiting various “circuit bent” toys and devices I found on eBay. Their glitchy deconstruction of the original devices’ sounds was quite fun. This is not them, but something else. This is a fun little romp through […]

Not Just The Same

Your free song for April. Uses an eclectic mix of vocal snippets here and there. Headphones would not be wasted. I just write these for my own sanity, so no ads, not trying to sell you anything. But hitting that like button would also not be wasted. You yourself may or may not be wasted, […]

Solar 5

Your free song of the month, for March 2018. This is another one of those songs where all sound sources are from a single device, in this case a rack extension for Propellerhead Reason 10 called Solar 5 (formerly Solaris) by Skrock Music.

Chambre Humana

New song for February, this is a choral/orchestral effort featuring the third of the three new sample-based virtual instruments in Reason 10, called “Humana”, as well as a variety of orchestral sources from a Refill called “Chambre”. Older hipsters may recognize the reference in the opening ostinato.

Pangea

Pangea is the second of three new sample-based virtual instruments in Propellerhead Reason 10. The other two are Klang (which I looked at previously) and Humana. This is a short study of several of the individual instrument patches within Pangea. In order of appearance they are: Saz, Angklung, Harp Guitar, Lakeside Pipe Organ, Little Wooden […]

Klang

Here’s a bit of a tone poem (in a loose way) that I cobbled together somehow despite my cataract-filled eyeballs. Now that one of my eyeballs has been relieved of its cataracts, I was able to finish this song and get it published. All sounds are via the new “Klang” instrument in Reason 10, mostly […]
