Robot Heart Lullaby

April 30, 2010

Here is a new song I recorded in Garage Band, in literally less than one hour.  It’s an experiment with GarageBand’s auto-tune feature.

Symphonia Robotica, Part 4

March 29, 2010

Here is the fourth movement. This composition began as my cover of Miles Davis’ “Great Expectations,” but it quickly developed into something entirely different.

New music // Exorcising an ear worm.

February 18, 2009

Here is a melody that’s been rattling around my head for weeks.  In hopes of exorcising this ear worm, I recorded a couple tracks in GarageBand, added a few compression filters, normalized the waveform, and mixed-in an old cowbell recording.  You can download this piece of mediocrity here:

Here are two tracks I recorded with GarageBand. The first track is a multi-track project, with some mixed-in ambient sounds I captured at a festival in Oregon.

Porlolo @ Stonehenge

October 23, 2008

Erin invited Jon (on violin) and me (on keys) to play a set with her at Stonehenge, in Eugene OR.  Later on, we heard sets from Desolation Wilderness and Lake.  Erin convinced the drummer from D.L. and the horn section from Lake to join us on a few songs.  It was awesome fun, and you can check-out some (rather abstract) photos by clicking on the photo below here:

Here’s my version of the chords for “Cariñito.”  I’m totally open to suggestions for improvement.

(Amazon link to the performance by Los Hijos del sol)

C             Am         F       G      C
Lloro por quererte, por amarte y por desearte.
G      C     G      C
¡Ay cariño! ¡Ay mi vida!
C           Am        F        G   C
Nunca, pero nunca me abandones cariñito.
[insert psychedelic solo]

G      C     G      C
¡Ay cariño! ¡Ay mi vida!
C           Am        F        G   C
Nunca, pero nunca me abandones cariñito.
G      C     G      C
No me abandones cariñito.
