There's a new HEP LAD live album. Weirdo synth jams abound.

Thanks, Austin. That's definitely not a comparison I would complain about. I will check your release out.

All along there is the sound of feedback (Sund4r), Tuesday, 8 October 2019 16:33 (seven months ago) link

New single out today! You can hear me playing the Wurli if you listen close.

Nice tune and arrangement

No language just sound (Sund4r), Sunday, 24 November 2019 03:23 (six months ago) link

Thanks! That's pretty much all Οὖτις.

the band i play with is releasing an album soon and i am on one song!

however i am still determined to improve my ability to play/record solo so here is a doodle containing the unlikely plural marriage of a maraca, a recorder, a drumset, and me :)

In other news, I've been working on a dance music project (house, breaks, other) with a couple of other guys and we finally have a bunch of stuff to release. This is the b-side of our first EP, which will come out right before New Year's. I was playing around with randomizing the arpeggiator type every couple of bars which results in a never-ending cycle of patterns. It's a bunch of Ableton instruments, and then some Behringer Model D on pads and a different arpeggiator.

hey, 'the world is wrong' is really good! sounds like uncle tupelo!

Thanks! Full album out in January.

four weeks pass...

very excited about this being completed. have put a lot of work into it and i think we've finally figured out how to get a semi-decent sounding recording out of the gear we're using. it's not bob clearmountain or rudy van gelder or anything, but at least it doesn't sound like we're recording in an old shoebox anymore. i selected 'avery park' as the "highlighted" song, but only because it's short. i know it's a really long album, so if you just want to check out one thing, my favorite track is the new version of 'spectral three' (track 12).

Against all odds, actual music came out of my brain and was performed by me alone earlier this week and here it is (drums, tiny cymbals I borrowed from a band I played in a couple years ago, and a cowbell that used to belong to my drum teacher) 💕💜💕

Enjoyed that

Some good stuff here. Loving the balearic vibes on Avery Park Austin

paolo, Sunday, 12 January 2020 18:27 (four months ago) link

thank you for listening paolo! i like 'short hydra masks'! it has a very interesting dissonant / redemptive dynamic.

also, if you like syrup and powdered sugar on your mixdown, andy did his own mix of 'avery park.' with the chords emphasized, like, a lot.

Totally different head. Totally. (Austin), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 00:20 (four months ago) link

I'm not really sure what that means but thanks!

Here's a little exercise in getting the cyberpunk/Vangelis vibes out of my system (jk, I will never get them out of my system)

New Balboa Park single coming out in late Feb. Here is one of the b-sides:

I had a lot of fun chopping up the sax loops and playing it back into Ableton.

and our new album has dropped:

An audience member recorded the concert I sang in a couple of weekends ago:


I'm in the quartet singing Brahms' "Quartette" (Op. 92) at the beginning; the solos I did are at 46:30 ("The Little Horses" arranged by Copland) and 1:13:08 (most of "Stars" from Les Miserables)

totally unnecessary bewbz of exploitation (DJP), Monday, 3 February 2020 14:43 (four months ago) link

You've got a powerful voice! Sounds great.

We have a new house track out today with some beautiful sax by Brendan Buss:

DJP I've been curious to hear what you sounded like for years.

always thought you probably sounded great, but this still exceeded my expectations.

reminds me of the ole choral days. love that vibrato and resonance.

finally motivated my isolated ass to play the guitar today. recorded the Beatles's "In My Life":


also if anybody missed the Hooked on a Feeling in the COVID thread, here it is:

'Back To Normal'
(I decided at the end of last year to release it today, nothing to do with the current situation)

Dude! Your songs are hilarious.

Oh I missed this when it was first bumped. Your 'In My Life' cover is as awesome as its predecessor, Neanderthal, please post more!

Doing these little polyrhythmic improvisations/exercises:

Which inspired me to write a piece on the computer using similar rhythms but actual notes, and it sounds great in that it ends up sounding like a carbon copy Steve Reich rip, which has no reason for existing. Maybe I'll try again just recording those percussion sounds and doing a produced version, and maybe that will sound a little more fresh, idk. I know it's well-trodden territory but feels like comfort food rn.

Although you know what, it turns out that putting Valhalla Space Modular on everything instantly makes it more interesting, go figure

change display name (Jordan), Sunday, 12 April 2020 20:51 (one month ago) link

as someone who routinely works in polyrhythms and reich rip-offs, keep going

Thank you, I have kept going and now I'm very excited about this project.

I have a remix out today too, done pretty quickly under quarantine conditions: https://open.spotify.com/track/2iWGqeJcFXusnE4ji7XAQ2?si=F4M3EFyLRjuzOl0qWW51yQ

Oh and coincidentally I also have a collab out today on this compilation, very different:

Love that rolling drum sample in the second one.

DJI, Friday, 17 April 2020 16:05 (one month ago) link

Thanks! I played that part myself.

I think the mastering compression is a little weird on that with the bass stabs, but they wanted a mastered version submitted on very tight timeline, so it is what it is.

change display name (Jordan), Friday, 17 April 2020 16:12 (one month ago) link

I have a couple new things!

First one is an instrumental for guitar with Mel9 box (clarinet setting), guitar with Big Muff, ukelele, and Casio (organ voice).

Second one is a little vignette song about my high school era rock band.

just finished a 3 hr beat tape... whew

You wrote all those tracks? Pretty sweet!

DJI, Thursday, 23 April 2020 19:04 (one month ago) link

thx 😃

Bstep, Thursday, 23 April 2020 19:14 (one month ago) link

Real guitar or programmed/sampled?

change display name (Jordan), Thursday, 23 April 2020 19:38 (one month ago) link

sampled. most of the tracks are sample based, except for about 10 that i made with software synths

Bstep, Thursday, 23 April 2020 20:37 (one month ago) link

New recording, streaming on Soundcloud for a limited time before this year's album release - my electric arrangement of Montreal composer Shawn Bell's 1995 classical guitar composition Currents II. I started doing an electric version of this in 05 but hadn't really played it for 10 years before picking it up for a December gig. I've been moving towards just accepting and leaving in some of the imperfections in my playing.

Can't see it. Did you already take it down?

Did you replace the "4" with an "a" in the URL?
