Space Station

August 19th, 2017

This is actually the first track that I ever wrote on the computer. This was back in 1999-2000, some time in there. I was using an application called Noteworthy Composer. It was actually software for writing sheet-music to be printed on paper, but there was also a midi playback feature so that you could preview […]

2012 Compilation

April 29th, 2014

At some point two years ago the drive to actually finish and share tracks left me. I think partly this has to do with an overly harsh internal critic, and also the realization that I should be able to do music without constant positive external reinforcement. Then in 2013 I decided to share some of […]

Pulling a pint.

October 2nd, 2009

Oooo. I got one.  ahem: This is a track I started way back… a-way-back-back-a-wiggity-whack. (dig it) but my patience diminished and so I never did-a-dip-done-done finished. (I ,like, totally got hung up man. It’s crazy.) snapsnapsnap So I had this idea for a concept piece to do in fruity loops. It would be like Camille […]

The 1990s was a major decade for both video games, and the music industry. Hip-hop was beginning to take a substantial piece of the market away from rock and roll, and gamers were putting down their quarters and purchasing home video game systems. These two cultural forces meshed in the form of one of Nintendo’s […]

Here is another one of my old video-game-style midis that I rerecorded with my current resources. I originally composed this about seven or eight years ago. About 5 years ago I tried to record a live instrument version with guitar, but it wasn’t coherent at all. The recording here is my recent attempt that I […]

DJ Khaled Remix

July 3rd, 2009

DJ Khaled – Brown Paper Bag (MW Remix) I created this acapella following this tutorial: http://www.halo3forum.com/music/164655-how-create-cpu-acapellas-full-tutorial.html I decided to follow the original song closely, because it is just easier that way.  I should probably make the kicks more prominent, and add some more interesting drum patterns with open hi-hat, but seeing as how it is already […]

Da Mystery Of Cheeseboxin’

April 22nd, 2009

Da Mystery Of Cheeseboxin’ This is just a quick sketch that I did over a couple of days. I was experimenting with the slice to MIDI function of Ableton 8. It takes a selection of audio, cuts it up based on some parameters you select, and then puts those slices into a MIDI instrument of […]

A “Heartless” Review

April 13th, 2009

  kanye-dis-track   I generally like Kanye West’s music. I think he has done some really great songs. His production is often both catchy and interesting, and his raps can be very clever and enjoyable. That said, when I listened to his most recent album, “808s and Heartbreak,” I was highly disappointed. I had been […]

believerse This is something that me and a friend have started working on for a new project. It’s just the part with my verse. We’re still working on it. Thanks for listening! -Donny Jarko
