Song for P. This is the last and final electronic piece of music that I wrote. I hadn’t written any electronica in nearly 5 years but this girl I was in love with really enjoyed that style of music. So for Christmas, I dug my heels in and churned out this song. While simple in comparison to my other electronic works, I think it turned out amazing and in some ways is up there with the best electronic pieces I have ever done. Short and Sweet, this is the final track from my electronic album Collections: 1998-2005
ROOF ATTACK! - Watch out for Pedestrians Assholes. This is my first real attempt at pop punk, still considering other instrumentation, not sure how i feel about the trumpet or the piano parts. Needs drums. Rough draft, written last night, recorded this morning/afternoon over last 3 hours.
EDIT: didn’t like the piano and trumpet so here it is without. Can I edit the mp3? lets see
"The Road Into Never", this is the first track from my electronic album written a long time ago tentatively titled Collections: 1998-2005. Similar in style to old M83, who apparently was starting too at around those years. He later got vocalist and more poppy but his earlier stuff-my stuff.
This track is titled aka Aaron’s Song as it was explicitely meant to represent my personality. It starts neutral, goes dark and negative, ends happy and exuberant. Many of my songs contain that structure, originally started here.
"Our Timeless World" - This is an oldey of my recording experience and since i was a *bit* drunk when I made up my own tuning to create this piece, I have not been ever to re-create the sounds of the guitar. I’ve re-recorded the vocals couple of times and think it really needs either new lyrics and/or vocal melody. But I recorded this with my laptop and an early 2000’s era USB mic, in a bathtub, with toilet paper around the mic to try and get down the treble. The guitar parts are some of the best i have ever done, not just considering my state of mind, but the whole song itself, when heard without vocal tracks, is pretty amazing. In fact, the vocals you hear here are two bits from some poetry i had written and basically through together to form a song. Let me know what you think, please, any advice on try to salvage this is appreciated
Flywheel Shyster, with piano tracks. I came up with the name Flywheel Shyster based on some of the Marx Bros. radio show, Flywheel Shyster and Flywheel. It was going to be my band name if i eve came to have a band. So if i go solo, it will only be a song, and here is the song… hope people enjoy it.
It wasn’t me, one of the more poppy songs i’ve written and the one that most people tend to really like or like best, here with new piano parts, although the high piano part during the chorus i wanted to do with the trumpet but just don’t have the chops yet to pull it off, something i might do later.
Paradise Way - I posted this yesterday, but spent many more hours mixing, adding a new piano part, and seeing what it sounds like cutting the rhythm guitar from the verse, which i have done here. I don’t know which one i like better yet but it seems pretty cool to start out with two counter melodies, rather than a standard melody, and have it pop back in loudly on the chorus.
My first (and probably last) attempt at some sort of visual art, i took a home depot sign that they were going to throw out and decided to make some recycled art! I cut it up and re-arranged it to what you see, the arrow pointing down as some light reference to the kabbalic tree of life
Cardinal Directions, my super positive song, with trumpet, piano, and lead guitar parts. This was fun to record. Take a listen and tell me what ya think!
