I've revived an old MIDI tune by throwing it at Garageband and tweaking a few dials. This track was largely inspired by various chunks of Tool, Lacuna Coil and Dream Theater, resulting in a hodge-podge mish-mash of semi-gothic mellow-metal electronic noises. Enjoy!
More muzak. The title, if you're curious (and I'm sure you are), is Latin for "ghostly". This one's not as finished as I'd like it to be, but I've pored over it and I can't really be willed to do anything further with it. It's got some nice melody and some bizarreness about it. For some inexplicable reason, it also mocks the hearty power chords of every television theme song from the early 1980s' at one point. If you can spot it, you can have a gold star.
Part of the continuing deluge of "Potentia II: Extras", sequel to "Potentia II', itself a sequel to "Potentia". Bet you didn't see that coming.
Thanks for listening!
Some more tunage, in this case a strange, rather eclectic acoustic guitar and piano piece with strained scales and some hearty piano thumpings. Sometimes the simplest things are the most pleasant. This is another part of "Potentia II: Extras", a sequel "album" to "Potentia". You can find a bunch of stuff on my SoundCloud page, should you want to go listen to it.
Thanks for your time!
Once again, I've been creating some kind of fused progressive metal bollocks in the name of music. In this instance, I've learned a few things: 1. I listen to Porcupine Tree far, far too much.
2. Good off-time drums are freaking hard to write.
3. Repetitive does not mean good, but it helps.
4. Everything benefits from spontaneous woodwinds. (Or not.)
Here's the track. Please, enjoy. Or don't. YMMV.
Sometimes I make music. Here's a melodic piano/oboe piece that I'm quite proud of. It has some nice structure and the changes are unexpected, but pleasant. The bassline meanders, but seems to make it back into familiar territory just at the right moment. I quite like the melody of the "chorus", with its out-of-left-field resolution. I hope you enjoy!
Sometimes I make music. Sometimes it's alright. Sometimes it's not. Sometimes, it's remarkably in-between, and defies being pressed into either of the aforementioned categories. In this example, I've managed to fuse together some bizarre early Porcupine Tree-esque bass bounces with some Yamaha DX-7 vintage electric piano stylings and some entirely unnecessary organ chords in the introduction. I can't help myself.
Thanks for listening!
