This piece is a quick improvisation using my new Ibanez Talman electric acoustic guitar. It’s based around the chord pattern on the acoustic, which just came from messing around. Overall it’s a bit rough, as it’s been a long time since I’ve done any recording. In particular I’ve […]
I just realised that I forgot to post this one – which is a pity, because it’s definitely one of my better attempts.
I’m particularly happy with the guitar – it’s probably the first piece I’ve done where I actually feel like a guitarist.
It was very much written […]
Tonight we have a very loud, raw piece, aiming very squarely at early 90s grunge. There’s nothing but bass, drums, guitar and voice, and there’s a grand total of four chords used. It didn’t require a whole lot of ability to either write or play, but it was fun.
Tonight’s piece marks the first time I have recorded a piece with Saxophone in ten years. My old Sax had started falling apart, and the potential cost of refurbishment along with the Progressive Metal focus of the Cumulo-Nimbus years meant that I just never got round to doing anything about it.
Tonight’s piece is a collaboration between Caitlin and me.
Whilst the performance you hear is entirely me, I’m playing the bassline and chords that Caitlin wrote, and we only didn’t include her bass performance because I accidentally deleted her first (not quite right, but probably passable) take, and subsequent […]
The first one for 2009 is just a quick piece of fun with a delay effect.
Four parts – Dums, Bass, Guitar and Organ, the organ part basically an improvisation.
Not much more to say about it really – it doesn’t really say anything, but it was fun. It’s […]
Yes, 2006. This was one I started the first time round, but didn’t really finish. Tonight I was poking through old stuff and came across it, and figured it really deserved some better treatment. Most of what you hear is the original 2006 recording – I only added the synth, the […]
Ok, so here it is, my first composition and recording on my 1840s Broadwood Square Piano.
Apologies in advance for it being so mournful and dirge like, and my playing being so wooden – I never claimed to be a pianist. Lack of piano ability is what makes […]
I didn’t think I was going to get anything done at all tonight. I spent most of it battling with installing the EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra Silver PLAY Edition (which is even harder to say than it is to type). I already had EWQLSO, but a few months ago they […]
Tonight’s one has the distinction of being probably the quickest I’ve done since I started – it only took 4 hours. Most of the reason for that is that it’s not very imaginative, and the performances are pretty rough. But that kind of suits it.
It’s lazy, but loud. Very […]
