Inspector Gadget (Marked Features Remix)

19 10 2011

I made a new track, remixing the Inspector Gadget theme. Most of what I did is cutting, looping and some effects. Again, this was made using Reaper.

Enjoy :).





Break It Regina and KeybOARD Live

16 04 2011

Here are two tracks I’ve played around making. The first is a composition sampling from Regina Spektor’s first album. The second is a live take from Reaper using Native Instruments’ Kontakt 4 (my new toy).

New Track

26 02 2011

Still using my standby DAW Reaper, I’ve been exploring some of the sound packages available from Native Instruments. I’ve also been trying with each new track to develop some sense of composition, transitions between themes, introduction and recapitulation and things like that. Fun sounds are cool, but turning fun sounds into a story, with arc, development and texture… that’s something I’d like to develop the ability to do more.

Meanwhile, philosophizing aside, here’s the new track, called New Waves (more available at SoundCloud).

Metric – Blindness

22 01 2011

This song is pretty great. It reminds of Broder Daniel but more polished, with a driving earnestness but a smooth, pop song finish.





Me and Moderat

21 11 2010

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted here on the blog, but I’ve got an IDM treat for you today (followed by a new track by me, inspired by them). Moderat is the collaborative project of Apparat and Modeselektor, two German artists based out of Berlin. The self-titled album Moderat, by Moderat, is pretty sensational. You definitely have to give it a chance to develop, particularly so you can hear the synth of Rusty Nails. It’s so cool. My favorites include:

A New Error

And now for my track, called ModerAAAATTTT:

Amon Tobin and Funkstörung Use a Similar Beat

29 10 2010

I’m playing around with some tunes I might play at Crazy Wisdom next Thursday (8:30-10:30), and discovered an eery similarity in the drum beat in these two. I don’t know if there is some sampling going on or if it’s just a strangely similar beat. I totally dig the slow drive, although after a few listens I have to mix it up with something different.
