Covfefe

I wanted to do a cover of that song “Tequila” by The Champs, except where the music stops and they shout “tequila!” I would shout “covfefe!” Only the title survived from that idea. Instead, I ended up with whatever this is.

Alongside various sampled mouth noises, the notable lead instrument is a Circuit Bent Lisa […]

Am Being

Not some kind of existential statement, the title is just a play on the word “ambient”, which starts out apropos enough, but then less so as the song progresses.

Seeds of Structure

The title refers to the tiny little variations in the primordial soup in the moments after the Big Bang, which were the seeds of the eventual structure of the universe, galaxies and so forth. At least that’s how I understand it. Using it more as a metaphor, I suppose, and because it’s better than “Working […]

Catching Up

It’s been about a year since I posted anything here — I’ve been super busy doing not much of anything, but I’ve got a little time now so I thought I would catch up.

The last song posted in this blog from 2016 was MakeMake ( pronounced maw-key-maw-key). Three more songs found their way to YouTube […]

MakeMake

A new song, named after the dwarf planet Makemake (maw-key-maw-key) which in turn derives from the mythology of the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island, a propos of nothing in particular. Maybe I’ll do a suite of dwarf planets that Gustav Holst did not cover. 🙂

Blackfoot

New song! It’s called Blackfoot, after the Blackfoot Drum sound that opens the song and continues for a good part of it. The images are once again of space things, for no reason other than the general spacey quality of the music.
