New Track: “Another School”

in Music, Orchestral, Pop by on April 16th, 2006

Dissonant, rhythmic, intense, compressed, and jazzy, with a great big finish. EWQL SO Gold XP, Colossus, RA, Kick Ass Brass, Stylus RMX. In retrospect, the story of a delinquent youth not unlike Jim Carroll in The Basketball Diaries but not so druggy, having been expelled from one school for his bad behavior and enrolled in another where his education will soon prove equally hopeless. Miscreant vigor, heady violent delights. Seen on a staff, the notes would be clenched fists.

New Track: “Stonfluent Smansion” (Exotica Version)

in Music, Pop by on April 5th, 2006

Get-outa-here nutty. A new version of my Stonfluent Smansion with the production ante vastly upped and the attitude changed from bad-trippy to wacky-trippy-go-Hawaii-wacka-wacka-boom. Watch out for the big finish. EWQL SO Gold XP, Colossus, RA, Stormdrum, Trilogy, Stylus RMX.

Kosta Potamianos describes it thus: “The penguins have gotten braver — they are beginning to indulge their curiousity and wonder and poke around at all the strange marvelous objects that the future abandoned mall they’ve stumbled across avails them. They are getting into the spirit of an imagined groovines of a culture they have no access to, donning their clothes — sunglasses, summerwear — trying to figure the functioning of shiny, and technologically mysterious inventions — utterly uncomprehending, but surprisingly spot on at times clumsily turning over cell phones and such twixt the ignorant flaps of the flippers.”

New Track: “Moped Casebook”

in Music, Pop by on July 7th, 2005

Essentially an easy-listening 70s Italian movie soundtrack — groo-oovy trumpet, some imaginary person with a shaker, swarthy guitarists with open-necked shirts and bandanas. A much different style than most things I’ve posted here, though not necessarily of things I’ve done. RA, Colossus, Synful trumpet, Trilogy, Stylus RMX.
