Dark As A Dungeon

February 26th, 2009

Dark As A Dungeon This song was an experiment with acoustic recording, vocal harmony, and singing. It features a guitar, three voice tracks, and a ukulele. I didn’t plan the vocal harmonies beforehand. Instead I punched in and out a lot until I found something that I liked. I’m glad I don’t have to mine […]

I tried to get this done last week, but I ran out of time, then got sick. I’ve gotten well enough to spend some time to finish the track before eating a bite and going back to bed. This is a note for note cover of two songs from a video game.  If you’re the […]

I got the blues.

January 26th, 2009

I’ve been feeling sick lately, which puts me in the mood for acoustic blues. Hence: hardtime.

December 20th, 2008

Well, it’s some interesting sounds, and some ear piercing synths. I tried to take the edge off of it, but it only sorta worked.  Careful if you listen with headphones. Slowly working towards something better. I’ll get there sooner or later. 2008-12-20

Digital Love

December 4th, 2008

Digital Love Josh Lee, Brian Adams and I recorded this song a week or so ago. I put one condenser mic on the piano that josh was playing. I put one condenser mic on the acoustic guitar that Brian was playing and positioned it so it would also pick up some of the ride cymbal. […]
