Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

The Stuff of Legend 2016

Another 20-ish anniversary remake of the first proper track I ever created back in 1995, using my new PowerMac and Opcode Vision, both long since defunct. Still one of my faves. This version gets the complete 21st century reno, as I’ve been doing. The original version is the closing track on my CD Gravitas, available […]

The Ross Delusion

Sometimes the fun is not looking for background video that is most appropriate for the song, sometimes the fun is looking for background video that is LEAST appropriate for the song. In other words, don’t overthink it.

In this case, while wandering through archive.org, a 1953 film called “A is for Atom” caught my eye. […]

Cut & Paste 2016

Another from the vaults, here’s my new twentieth anniversary version of this song from 1996, “Cut & Paste”.

The video background is from a 1983 episode (#10) of a show called “Bits and Bytes” posted by TVOntario on Archive.org, and starring those well-known computer music pioneers Luba Goy and Billy Van (LOL). Okay, maybe not, […]

Jazz From Heck

Here’s a new song called “Jazz From Heck”, a reference to Frank Zappa’s “Jazz From Hell” which it in no way compares to or resembles, except maybe suggesting a lightweight, jauntier version of “G-Spot Tornado”. The background video is from a 1940 cartoon called “The Snow Man”, found on archive.org.

So-So-Wa

This is a brand new song, although I did reuse some of the African chanting samples from Intruderbiko, posted earlier, because I like them that much. Don’t look for deep meaning in the title. It does have a meaning, but it’s very silly and not worth explaining, I promise you. The dancing is from a […]

Belly Dance

This may be the first and only belly dance music written in 13/8 time… (but don’t hold me to that)… A redo of a song originally done in 1995, and released in 2010 on my album “Gravitas”. This version uses mostly the original performance data, but gets a whole new sound to the instrumentation. The […]

Is This Still Your Brain?

Here’s a song called Is This Your Brain? I just finished this 20th anniversary version. I don’t want to say it’s the definitive version, because that would mean committing. But I like it that much. For this version I went back to the original source TV show, because the soundbites I had originally used were […]

In A Gadda Sharona

This one’s a bit of fun. Starts out sounding like a slightly adrenalized PBS documentary theme song, eventually sliding into the title mashup. There’s a Frank Zappa song called “In A Gadda Stravinsky” which mashes up Rite of Spring with the Iron Butterfly classic, more cleverly than anyone could hope to do anything. But that’s […]

Erik Satie – Gymnopedie 1

Black like my mood, like my soul. Like Henri Le Chat Noir.

Intruderbiko

New song! This one, as the title suggests, features the recurring rhythmic patterns from the first and last songs (Intruder and Biko) on Peter Gabriel’s third untitled (face-melty) solo album. I used those drum patterns (played, not sampled), four bars of one, four bars of the other, lather rinse repeat, and added some other stuff […]
