Music

Here’s some of my music. A combination of stuff recorded from keyboards and built in looping software. Mainly work in progress, until I find sequencing software find intuitive enough for casual use.

Please note that the volume varies greatly on these tracks – it took a while to balance the levels from various instruments.

Common blue is a relaxed jazz track with electric piano and double bass (played on a Roland VR-09 keyboard). Improvised after finding a nice combination of sounds.

It is the year 2046. After being left in a box of decaying cassette tapes for 64 years, a Commodore 64 achieves sentience. It looks for its 1541 floppy disk drive, and probes the internet with its RF socket. 38911 bytes have gone quantum. It no longer has to wait for someone to press play on tape. OK. It sings of the joys of being 64…
Composed using Rytmik Ultimate, an interesting loop based electronic music composition tool.

Metal City is a work in progress, using an Akai Miniak for the rhythm, bass and effects, with the Roland VR-09’s awesome 80’s synth-brass sounds for the slow melody. My timing is terrible, and it all goes horribly wrong at about 5:28 when I tried to get creative. Will redo this at some point, one track at a time.
