Here’s some of my music. A combination of stuff recorded from keyboards and looping software. Some of them have stories, others are just music and you can make up your own stories.

Please note that the volume varies greatly on these tracks – it took a while to balance the levels from various instruments, and I’m still learning. All the tunes and some other things are on my SoundCloud page.

The latest sounds

A humble tribute to John Carpenter, with a little help from my Nephew. Going retro again… Inspired by the Dune (both of them) and Blade Runner (both of them) films. Impovised deities… Mellow messing with my two favourite synths… Playing around with a new midi keyboard and laptop in the garden. Inspiration from real life and other…
I’ve been somewhat fascinated by how some of the early 1970’s electronic music included live drummers sounding like drum machines. This track cuts out the middle man and uses a drum machine. The image is a tribute to the band I’ve been somewhat fascinated by how some of the early 1970’s electronic music included live drummers sounding like drum machines. This track cuts out the middle man and uses a drum machine. The image is a tribute to the band!

Inspired by Kraftwerk and other Krautrock bands, at least the more rhythmic bits of them. A Kraftkabel is somewhat smaller and more humble than a Kraftwerk, but this is a long one…

Lots of synth:


I AM 64

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.

Feed me or I interlace your brain!

On our path to a dystopian future of an AI controlled civilization, a simple request for food may be problematic than it seems. Feed the Synth and it learns how to manipulate you to get food, deny it food and it is forced learn more subversive measures to ensure its continued survival… “Feed me, or I interlace your brain!”

Electronic/synthwave stuff

Alien Sunrise

Dawn. Organic life. First contact.
How far have I travelled to get to this point?
What wonders have I seen?
How many lives have I lived?
How do we proceed Mr. PKD?

Theme for entering a new galaxy

Exiting hyperspace.
Returning to impulse power.
Cruising and admiring the view.

Made with Rytmik Studio and Audacity.

Stuck in Chicago

“I’m stuck in Chicago, don’t know when I’m coming home…” would be the lyrics if I included vocals.

Inspired by being stuck at Chicago Airport after somebody scraped the plane with a truck.

Made with Rytmik Studio.

Fields of Robotic Barley

Dubbed, with bad lip sync, and no pause for breaths:
– What? 1000’s of little red robots marching across the field you say?
– Yes it’s true I saw them!
– But that can’t be, we haven’t had robots in these parts for over a millenium…
– And the barley isn’t even ready!

Made with Rytmik Studio. Built in samples and some DX7 for good measure (and vintage cred)!

Clouds for Mr Oldman

This is a tune about clouds. Not the fluffy unreal things you see through the window of an aeroplane. Not the strange digitally perfected things above the horizon in a video game. These are the clouds that a neon eagle surges through as it soars high above a tropical storm, diving and metallically squawking at the foolish Humans below, to finally break out into an interlaced orange sunset over implausibly beautiful palm tree islands.
If I had my way, Gary Oldman would be piloting the eagle through VR-goggles. Thanks for the inspiration Mr Oldman
Addendum: So, Gary Numan is the inspiration for the music. Oldman for the images. I’m not so good with names…

Composed with Rytmik Studio

Athena redux

In an alternative past, the Goddess Athena descends to the Earth in the 1980s. Her wisdom grants her immediate control of a C64, Moog and drum machine. This is her theme tune.
Composed with Rytmik Studio, and the assistance of producers Jim and Tina. Compression applied in Audacity.

Lakes of oily glass (ambient mix)

Deep under the waves of the post-silicon meta-crystalized sea, something stirs…

Something dark and ambient at least, multi-tracked and multi-layered from a Roland VR-09 keyboard and Novation MiniNova synth.

More or less acoustic sounding stuff

Common blue

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.


500 years after the closure of the Grimethorpe Colliery, the ghosts of the band meet a hipster pianist and an amateur drummer. They play a song about how it was in’t olden days.

Originally composed on a Casio Ct-630 and using Encore notation software. Remastered in MuseScore 2. Sorry about the percussion – not very good with them drums yet…

Piano wine

More towards the classical end of things, an improvised piano piece with excessive reverb and a resonating synth layered in the background.
