My Halo's In You

posted in OHC708 on May 05, 2022

I played the Theremin live for this one

What do you see in fires

Joined in combusting heat

A steamy conflagoration

As the fires meet the sea

In the flame, woah woah

In your flame, woah woah

In the flame, woah woah

My halo's in you

Were Two And Now One

posted in OHC707 on Apr 28, 2022

All the things

Just as I left them

Nothing's changed

My step back in time

But something's different

When I step through the portal

You've lost, I've won, it's begun.

At some time I started looking for you

When you were lost

And I was only one

Then we were two, now I'm one again

It had only just begun.

4 AM (Cover) - Kaskade

posted in OHC706 on Apr 21, 2022

Not really a successful cover, this needed more takes, and maybe I should have changed the key.

Sleepless gliding

Over the city lights

Watch us flying

Over the streets tonight

And I say

There's a way, there's a way I know

I know that someday we will surely find it

There's a way, there's a way I know

Someday, there's a way I know it

Sunday morning

Watching the city sleep

Dreams are shining

Finally they're within reach

Stranger in Chaos

posted in OHC704 on Apr 07, 2022

I tried to do an orchestral song

A distant dream, a memory

Faded in integrity.

Dwell in the power of the mind

Leaving the mysterious past behind

In paradise, the stranger

Ever lurking in the danger

As they dwell in a strange land

Fighting darkness with a light hand

Chaos. Do you feel it?

Must kill the chaos, do it.

The light I bring

Kills the chaos within

A Sun Sets Upon Our Time

From brighter days

I saw you

in the moonlit sky

A twinkling past


As the time flies by

In morning's sun

We bridged the

Passage in our way


Passion and


The sun sets on our time

But when the night begins

We learn about each other

The dark might be unknown

But it's peaceful and serene

It leads to a new dawn

My Mistake

posted in OHC701 on Mar 17, 2022
Recorded live (with only one small edit in post and some mastering)

Except that this did take like a few dozen takes, I eventually did record the final version live.

Composed with Modular + Minibrute 2s + VoiceLive 3 loop pedal

Roll the dice

Feeling lucky

Throw your chips

My heart's not lucky

Some days I just can't catch my break

There's no place for my mistake

You've got no place for me in your mind

You've got no place for me in your heart

The numbers don't favor me

The lucky one

The numbers don't favor me

I'm done

What Now?

posted in OHC700 on Mar 10, 2022


One-two, is that a wheel for you?

Three-four, the hinges on the door

Five-six, are~ windows a trick?

Seven, eight, this was a mistake.

Unclear why you even care 

Not sure why you all must stare

These things, they only cause division

No path to win, no satisfaction


Of all the things

That we fight about

This was that thing

Where answers burn out.


What now

Is that an open door?

What now

Spinning wheels some more

What now

Is it anticipation?

The things you list

Add to your frustration


One-two, a gears a wheel you say?

Three-four, the hatches on the floor

Five-six, the numbers you predict

Arent even close, what a mistake.

Is that an open door?

Days of Shadowed Moon

posted in OHC699 on Mar 03, 2022

Wandering in dark

Lost in our way

Wondring where goes

All the bright days


What can we do?

Where do we go

Caught in dark nothing to see

We only pray

Where shall we see?

Whats is there left?

Amidst the dark theres no such path

Cant see today.


But then, we see, a light

From ashes, a hope

From the horizon strikes, a ray, our fates!


And the light

Tt shines above the darkness

And the days of shadowed moon

The torch of hope, it shines brightly

As we witness a new noon.

Modular synth + bass synth + vocal pedal stuff.

Post processing was minimal (1 compressor and Ozone), but I did sing over some parts that weren't good

Behind the long, red sky

How far will the sun-set reach

Behind every hill

Each tree, each blade of grass

Stories left untold 

How far will you go?

As the arrow flies.

Face Your Storm

Why has it come to this?
Why do you face this storm?
In my shadow, longing
Must I take. you down this morn.

Your ways led you down this path
Did you see how this road would end?
You quake, but you hold the line
I cannot let you keep your ways.

You trample and you take
No mercy or mistake
You say all shall be free
Free for all shall take your day.

Face your storm, freely
I am your storm, really
Find your fight, truly
Ill take you down!

Old Man, My Guide

posted in OHC693 on Jan 20, 2022
Another song where I sang live to a Eurorack modular beat with a hardware-only setup. I have no idea what I'm doing or how to mix with an actual mixer apparently.

A journeys end
Staring from the summit
My lifes work
My guide smiles at me.

Have I peaked too soon?
Halfway to the moon?
Will I journey down
Or will I fall?

Old man, what do I do now?
Help me up
Help me down

Old man, what happens now?
You gave me a way
But now you frown.

The slow path down
My energy sapped
I stumble on my feet
My guide smiles at me.

The top is just the halfway mark
he says. You still have to go down
And from there is a new way
That is only for you.

Old man, youve shown me how
To find a way ahead
A starting crown

Old man, the journey was not the end
Your patience and your help
Were the real grace.

Flood My Mind

posted in OHC692 on Jan 13, 2022
Performed live on Eurorack modular and voice AT THE SAME TIME with no software except for Ozone to bump levels up at the end I hope this doesnt really suck


Flooding my mind
It never stops

When you leave my spirit
Im drowning inside.
When you leave me behind
It floods my mind

I never realized until this day
That I could miss those I had never met before.
I never understood
The power of these unseen bonds

Flood, my mind
It never fades

There is a part of you
That lives inside
A part I never understood
Let me see it again.

Drowning in you
Feeling like its just begun
Drowning in you
These times are not undone

Drowning in me
My feelings spilling over the rim
Drowning in me
Im never done.

Flood, my mind
Dwell in the moisture

Flood, my mind
I need the deep

Flood, my mind
I missed you

Flood, my mind
Its so clear

Time Gifting Me

posted in OHC690 on Dec 30, 2021

These magic moments

Before my eyes

Step back to see

These things time gifts to me

As each new thought comes

Adds to my memory

These are what my soul stores

Stores these things forever more

There's never any doubt of the things that I can see

My mind expands to feel the strength of our soul

As I learn, as I feel, as I think, as I breathe

These moments create me, define me

I take in what time offers to me.

When time comes gifting me

I take what I can see

When time comes gifting me

I accept what's known to be

Answers - Final Fantasy XIV (Cover)

posted in OHC689 on Dec 23, 2021

(Cover song of Answers by Nobuo Uematsu because crystals, also this is hard to sing and I'm sorry it's also not finished I couldn't get through the song)

I close my eyes, tell us why must we suffer

Release your hands, for your will drags us under

My legs grow tired, tell us where must we wander

How can we carry on if redemption's beyond us?

To all of my children in whom Life flows abundant

To all of my children to whom Death hath passed his judgement

The soul yearns for honor, and the flesh the hereafter

Look to those who walked before to lead those who walk after

Shining is the Land's light of justice

Ever flows the Land's well of purpose

Walk free, walk free, walk free, believe...

The Land is alive, so believe...

Now open your eyes while our plight is repeated

Still deaf to our cries, lost in hope we lie defeated

Our souls have been torn, and our bodies forsaken

Bearing sins of the past, for our future is taken

War born of strife, these trials persuade us not

(Feel what? Learn what?)

Words without sound, these lies betray our thoughts

Mired by a plague of doubt, the Land, she mourns

(See what? Hear what?)

Judgement binds all we hold to a memory of scorn

Tell us why, given Life, we are meant to die, helpless in our cries?

Leaving But Shards Behind

The sun shines on a new birth

Granting a new dawn!

A life, a new hope was born today

Let it emerge forth

Observe as life finds a way

Giving us all a new day!

Innocence, splitting free from the darkness

And gifting it to the world!

Nurture the ones that come before

Support those past the morn

Their radiant journeys

Wave as we welcome them  

Wave when they sail away

As the waters flow

Leaving but shards behind

Sunday's Dark Secrets

posted in 2HTS400 on Nov 28, 2021

There was a time when I thought that art was "art". That it was meant to be expressed and shared.

I didn't realize that the world... was so depraved.

I wanted it to be a dance song!

I was going to create a rock song

I had dreams of creating a rap song

I didn't realise that it would all fall away.

Now there's a creepy theme

And all I can do is whisper strange things into your ear

All these things that I held dear

In some abstract, ambient wind

When I was a young boy, I did not fear the dark

I wrote all of my songs, subjected you to my innocence

With each Two Hour span, you could see more of the truth

The hidden secrets, the little tricks

Copy-paste, repeated harmonices, presets, samples

A place without a plan

The themes that Antik exposes us to

He says he can count, but what does he do?

He ignores the past, covers up the present

Two Hour Track Sunday isn't so pleasant

The skills I learn, what are they for?

If numbers aren't correctly stored

The lies, the tricks, the secrets of sound

The songs, played once, and never again found.

Flawed, a Child

posted in OHC685 on Nov 25, 2021
This is probably the most emo song I've ever done. I'm actually doing fine though

I got a computer but didn't test properly before doing compo and ran into a bunch of problems so things didn't work as expected and I ended up deleting everything and rewriting around 40 minutes in.

The boring eyes suck me dry
Vampire of thoughts
Thief of tears

Please, pass the salt, they say at ease
But saltiness remains
My seat at the table, ever too short
My tension grows

What is it that they want from me?
Why dont they ever feel my pain?
Is it them, or is it me?
Flawed, a child, as I can be.

Time, the moments that they stole from me
and gaze at me with sympathy
I do not understand their stares
I feel so lonely

Dreaded times, drifting sands

Clocks in shadow, twisting hands

Turn back the tide, turn the time

To younger days.

Flowing river, down one way

It hurts now. Not back in the day

History repeats, secrets of man

Drifting moments, automatic

Those younger years

My more confusing time

But discovery reigns

In my simulated hope

The feelings, so strong

Only for first time

Or so I thought

In my simulated hope

Wrapped in a Sphere of Steel

In union, our hopes and dreams collide

In parting, our legend's paths break free.

Our wishes, round and round they make

Drifting aimless, in the heat of the sun they bake.

Our minds, crossing worlds apart

Emotions, fully intertwined,

Joined, as dreams were ought to be

Together, as two worlds collide.

You wanted more than I could give

My light, my heat, my energy

All of my thoughts went to you

I thought together we were strong

Inspiration from you and power for me

But instead you stole me

Wrapped in a sphere of steel

Clouded eyes keeps us apart

Old memories, revived

Wounds may heal

But not when the knife comes out again

And cuts me deep

Hands gripping the rocky maze

I'm always following behind

In the shadow, cleaning up your mistakes

Swallowing the dust asider

When I fall down

Reach out

Cry your name

Refuse it

Need your strength

Why do you always reach for me?

Why don't you just set me free?

Guess the lies, the common thread

Rendered eyes

Plastic faces

False smiles leading me on

Let through no part of a truth

Within me all I see is anger

All through my past

I couldn't trust the pretty faces

Too close to the sun and I got burned

Too far away, so now I freeze.

All frequencies are the same

Spectral lights my electric mind

Pink noise and power is the way

Leaning to love this sound of mine

They seek the pieces of you

Take that side of you

The power between worlds

From my shattered dream

Piece by piece

What I used to know grows dim

Tarnished and lost

Reaching within

Trying to keep unity

Losing myself now


Each part, each bit

Losing myself now

As you walk down these roads

Shrouded in mist

As you forget the paths you took

Covered in fog

You'll remember how it was

When I lit your way


There's a bunch of bad distortion that I couldn't fix :(

I would have liked for this to be kind of like, a Disney song or something but I didn't really have the harmony down so this kind of failed and a bunch of the notes are wrong anyway all over the place, and then I found out that I had also overwritten a bunch of my comps by accident when I was fixing some parts of the arrangement, so I had to try to re-record a verse when time was basically already over but then the voice was out of tune and I tried to also adjust the strings as well and I didn't listen to it so this is just a mess all around and I'm sorry about this one. The drums also don't really fit either and the bass was off so I deleted it. Ooops.

Looking for a world

Beyond that I can see

Searching for a way

To be what I can be

Find my way to fly

Escape this closed-up room

Live the dream I try

And make the world my sky!

Send forth the blessed wave

To cast aside the evils

And find the one I save

Armed with desperation

Wield a blade of light

Looking out for you

Trapped against the mirror

Against a sickly gaze

Wheels of Hope

posted in OHC655 on Apr 29, 2021

As usual I didn't listen to this in advance

When the sun falls beneath the horizon
Pedal pedal carry the flame
Wield the last light of the world
Wardens of light behond

Wheels of hope light up the way
The steel cavalry approaches
Bring the new fish of the day
Against the falling sun

Fey, The Arcane

Time allowance was about 13 minutes.

I did this on the Deluge from an empty project and recorded it direct in using Audacity. I created the parts and then did a single-take live performance.

I have a meeting so I might not be able to attend listening party today.

Cool Kiss Of Mist

In the night among the stars
Caught out in the snowflakes alone
Yet youre as cozy as a clam
Hidden in your warm little space

Enjoying the cool kiss of mist
With a lovely glass of wine
Would you like some company?
Lets breathe in the cold air tonight

My Arts and Crafts

Created in 15 minutes in Studio One Prime (the free version that doesn't allow VSTs or have a limiter) which includes starting the program and looking at the theme, but not writing the description.

Including problems with setup, not hearing sounds, and random errors too.

The Cloth Bathed In Sin

posted in OHC653 on Apr 15, 2021

Do you need to imagine what's been done to it?

Down come flames
Encompassing heat
Stench beyond reckoning
Dreams dissolving throughout

Clarion calls
Bringing to the end
Dreadful thoughts
Falling to ashes

Burn it all down
The cloth is bathed in sin
Let it come down
The doom cant escape from within

Empty Homes

Judgement Passed In Nothing

Where did you go
Im listening
For you

Its empty in here
Im waiting
For you

Im not perfect
Im not even good
But I thought you were
The one for me

I made mistakes
Passed judgement
In fear

Now theres nothing
Nothing for you
Nothing for me

Dragon Bits

I think this one took closer to 20 minutes. It would have been 15, but I had to record another take after the first one was flubbed.

I created this from a blank project on the Deluge.

Riding The Heat Wave

posted in OHC650 on Mar 25, 2021

Seeking ancients
Treasured time
Sands so far
Riding the heat wave

Finding ways
A grain in the line
Emerging truths
Riding the heat wave

Cooling nights
Searching stars
Sea of sand
Riding through the waves

Running sands
Under dark
Shifting ground
Dunes await

Shake the Silence

posted in OHC649 on Mar 18, 2021
Pushed out of my own life
Cant see the ground below my eyes
Hidden by the shadowed tower
I look up yet see nothing in the sky

When will I see that its on me?
I dream but I dont act like Im free
When will I learn that its not you
I just need to shake the silence

Crowds, they move all around me
Reach on out, blend right in
Pretend to fight, cast it aside
Welcome yourself back to the world

Ascending to the Dark - Live Jam

posted in 90MC008 on Mar 16, 2021

This is unfortunately kind of boring, but I did it live in a single take using an Octatrack, then I put some gain on it and added a limiter. I probably spent more time trying to figure out how to record audio on Windows than I did on the actual performance.

I used samples from this song from OHC if you might remember it.

A Ways Away From Nothing

posted in 90MC007 on Mar 09, 2021

I did this song in about 11 minutes in PreSonus Studio One 5. My timer says 12:40, but I am pretty sure I spent a full minute and a half re-tagging my song and locating it on my filesystem since I've never rendered audio from Studio One before.


Okay 11 minutes into FL Studio and:

  1. I learned how to change the default kick drum
  2. I learned how to make the pattern length longer for drums
  3. I managed to lose the track browser somehow and didn't know where to find it
  4. I tried using the browser and looked for violin, but the sound was really crappy. I adjusted it (It seemed like some kind of FM Synth rather than an actual violin) but it still sounds pretty bad
  5. It's still a mystery to me how/where things are routed to the mixer. I think I found out how to set tracks, but I for example had a synth playing the melody a second time and I had NO idea how to bump the volume on it
  6. I learned how to select MIDI notes with a selector. Unfortunately, I tried putting in too many notes (7th chords are too intense for an 11 minute compo) and I think I have the wrong chords as a result.

Pulled Into the Maw (FL Beginner)

posted in 90MC005 on Feb 23, 2021

Second time I've opened FL Studio. I wrote this in 9 minutes. What did I learn?

  • I learned how to reliably open the Piano Roll
  • I learned where the Insert FX are

What I still don't know:

  • Where the EQ is
  • How to make the mixer effects not appear super far away
  • How to make the fonts larger since they're microscopic
  • How to create a pattern and have it actually stick to an instrument (it was playing a kick instead of an actual note)

Faces On The Wall - Crystal Caverns

posted in OHC632 on Nov 19, 2020

The shadows flicker on the wall and shine their eyes at you.

I started with an empty project (no template!) and ended up creating most of the synths and FX chains from scratch. Except for the lead, that was a preset.

Sliding From You

posted in OHC624 on Sep 24, 2020

Sorry I can't keep pitch

Did you feel the freeze of my love

Sliding off your skin

The dark over you rains again

Washing off the emptiness


Have you seen the sweetness in the ponds

Shining on your lids

Working with the sand grain by grain

All it leaves are scratches within

Sorry, the vocals needed some work and I didn't have time to adjust.


Also I am super late.





My bed its so soft

I never want to go outside

Here is where I hide

Let me get my beauty rest


I summon all of my energy

My audience they await me

Lights, camera, action,r game

Thank you, leave a donation on your way


I say one, vultures descend upon me

I do another thing. Trrolls come at me

I hold my shield, The arrow bounce off

But it only takes one word to strike true

Taking me out.r


Its me versus a thousand you

My life on display

All I wanted was to share

But now your barbs have trapped here here


Its me versus ten thousand you

Watching my mistakes

It started as fun to be with you all

But now your attention hurts. I want peace. Set me free.


The Wall Senses

posted in OHC611 on Jun 25, 2020

Should've known better than to try to sing before coming up with a melody

Hear these walls

What do they say?

Scenes of shock, scenes of sadness

Blocking the waves from curious ears

If walls had ears

What would they hear?


If written down

What hurt would be known?



Look at these walls

What have they seen?

Tears of hurt, eyes of sorrow

Blocking the light from wondering eyes

If walls had eyes

What would they see?


If written down

What hurt would be known?



Why did I not notice you?

But instead I listened idly by

My regret is that I did not help you

I just closed my eyes.

A Little Bit of It All

Inside the Texture

posted in OHC601 on Apr 16, 2020

This was an experiment. Then I got hard crashes, had to erase a few of my synths, and didn't get time to redo parts that were out of tune.


Geometric shapes

The wireframes remain

Theres nothing here

theres nothing left


Stripped away to the core

Colors drained away

See nothing, hear nothing

Except the essence of their rays







Whats inside the textures?

What do you hide behind your mask?

Do you wish for us to know?

The truth buried inside your soul?


Whats under the skin?

What do you put within?

Is it a memory you fear?

Or a precious thought that you hold dear?

The ducks they come for you
The sky is full
Of their reign
Of the pain
Disaster from above

When nature strikes again
The ducks will lead
They receive
The power of bird flu

What have we done
Why cant we think
Why do we fail
Cant you rise up?

The birds will have the day today
But rise up
Rise up against their ways

The birds will have the way today
But rise up
Fight the wingspans way

Way Out of Touch

posted in OHC587 on Jan 09, 2020
Did not do
Held myself back too much
Attached to a dream
Dreams were way out of touch

My heart was there
My brain was a crutch
Flying too high
I was way out of touch

All I feel are my cold feet
All I know are my cold feet

Thought I was prepared
Not prepared enough
Skills shines through but mind bleeds true
I was way out of touch

Hint: adding lyrics 10m before compo end is not a great idea

Hurt (Nine Inch Nails Cover)

posted in OHC541 on Feb 21, 2019
I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real

The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liars chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair

Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I will keep myself
I would find a way

In Reality

There was this girl, she thought she was smart
She knew because they told her so
But when she had to head to the world
She struggled, she toiled, it hurt

She thought she was ready she thought she was smart
Failure sliced her heart
When she couldnt do it, not anymore
Her will and her dreams were gone

She went on blind
She toiled on broken
And she heard no cry
She tried and she tried

Tides of madness Tides of joy
Rushing water swept her away
Carried her dreams back where they came
In solitude she got away

What do you dream? Inside the night
What do you see in your mind's eye?

Are you listening to me tonight?

The dreams I bring carried to life
Are you listening to me all right?

Reflection of the Mind

posted in OHC523 on Oct 18, 2018
Sit in the dark, and look within. What do you see? What efforts you face, when you project them, no one else feels them. When you sit there, the reflection of the mind, why is the mirror so dark? Is it because there are no lights, or is it because I cannot see?

What will I do to bring light back? What will I do to once again see? What can I do to reflect on my mind, to know myself and let the mind be free?

(I created this patch on my Eurorack modular and will perform it live on Saturday at a local New England Synth Meetup.)

I kind of squandered my time trying to figure out some new hardware setups but I didn't know enough stuff and my first 40 minutes were wasted.

A lot of live recording of parts including MIDI keyboard drums. Also very little attention to sound design or mixing

In Quantum Space

posted in OHC490 on Mar 01, 2018
I erased my song 45m in and redid it from scratch because I didn't like it, so this is pretty unpolished. It has a lot of live noodling.

Ebb and Flow - Rock! Squid cover

posted in PRC356 on Sep 03, 2017
A rock cover of Ebb and Flow. I did this in one sitting in about 3h 15m. All of the tracks are live except for the drums (live guitars and bass). I don't play that well, so it's pretty rough, but it is a recognizable rendition of the song.

Music Log below:

Sunday, Sept 3

16:15: First, learn the song. Chords, key, scales. There’s a bit of note-borrowing going on from other scales here (something that I am pretty bad at - I stick to the scale tones a LOT).

17:30: Okay it took me like 30 minutes to get a 4-bar riff. At this rate I’m not going to finish before’s deadline.

19:30: “Done”. Only because I’m out of time - the parts all need to be redone so it’s more solid. It’s kind of outside of my ability but now that I’ve laid down the song it means that I can practice… and with time…

Total time: 3h 15m

One Live Take

Like fire’s beat

I knew you had me

The sparks are flying
As our hearts beat

The times we share together
The love we have with each other

Great Rockets Of Humankind

posted in OHC311 on Sep 25, 2014
The force of humanity is a great one indeed
They build up great buildings and help people in need
They build bombs of awesome destructive power
But ignore the great skies above

The great rockets of humankind Have no ideas left in mind
Curiosity is no longer there

What happened to the explorers of yore No desires all a bore
The miracle of flight, no one cares

So let’s go upstairs

Inspiration comes at too great a price
Science, technology, it’s all rather nice
There’s so much that we learn when we reach the skies
And yet the dark clouds remain

The great rockets of humankind Lay idly by it’s so unwise
Discovery’s the realm of the gods

Humanity’s so simple now, nothing is worth even a shout
The miracle of flight, no one cares

So let’s go upstairs and dreaaaam

A date with dreams of fright

I need a soul
Mine’s dying for
A pathetic goal

I need your help
From this dread
A way to break

To the mirror that sings to me
Why do I know it’s true
When I throw it all back out

Swallowing it
Spraying back out
Without a doubt

Her siren’s call
She steals my soul
Plays it back for me

I still fear. But I face it.

I'm scared of many things in the world. Making a fool of myself. Being new and unfamiliar to things.

Compo was scary when I started. I do it every week now and it's kind of a habit... but at the same time, I still am kind of scared of it and I have to suck it up and see how much I can improve. Every. Single. Week.

A Last Look Back

posted in OHC295 on Jun 05, 2014
This is an apt theme, since I'm moving. On Tuesday, they packed all of my things. On Wednesday I said goodbye. On Thursday, I drove to the airport. Tomorrow, I fly away.

All of my things are packed and I'm looking back at a city where I've really enjoyed spending my time.

Unfortunately I couldn't quite capture my emotions very well in song, since I don't have my normal music computer, my guitar, or my mouse, or even the program I usually use... but here's something submitted anyway. I spent about 20 minutes on this, interrupted by a phone call, submitted it, deleted it, then spent another 10 minutes on it.

Good bye Corvallis, Oregon!

I wish I had a place to start
I feel cold, my heart is numb

I don't want to be alone
But I wish someone would care
I wish I could change everything around
My head is frozen in winter's stare.

In my head
In my future
I am planning out our way

I maintain a posture of composure
As I re-hease my say

There's people in the lobby
There's a gun in my hand
There's a teller at the window
There's a car at the door

There's no suspect or suspicion
No one looking at my way
They said this would be easy
But they didn't ask my say

I want to run away

Oh yeah, oh yeah
I want to run away
Cut me free and I will find your escape of my mind

They're looking at my presence
They're noticing the scene
They said that I'd be perfect
But I wish it wasn't me

You and so much more

Only questions
I thought I knew you
and so much more

You stole so much
and hid from me
I felt I had you
and so much more

You crushed my dreams
and lied to me
I thought I loved you
and so much more

Trusted you
Promised me
We agreed
Words were true

Wanted you
Nice to me
Promised you

Hey guys, I was away at a conference on Thursday. I ended up doing a pre-compo song on Tuesday morning in about 55m... the theme? "The Orion Nebula". :)

This ended up pretty rough - a lot of off-beat notes, some wrong keys, and some timing issues, but it was more about getting the ideas and overall structure down before working on some of the fine-tuning.

The ultimate power is to be the Master and Commander of your own self.

To empty your mind of needless responsibilities and to record them in a place that is outside of your head is the way to getting things done.

When you sleep, they frolic in your head, snatching figments of your imagination and fragments of your thoughts, playing with them in time with the music that no one else can hear.

Drilling to the Core

It's just a regular atonal day doing a cargo run when you run into a strange field. You fight through the flying rocks and the drifting energy and then the shields hum at you at their resonance frequencies...

It's the Decision Tree Dance isn't it?

Game: Rockman ZX
Song: Area A (Green Grass Gradation)
Requested by: F4T4L
Duration: 3:02

I struggled a lot with this song. I had issues with out-of-tune notes, song structure, and instrument choices. In the end, I stuck with it because that's the point of the challenge - it's not supposed to be easy. I hope you guys like it.

Together, we, humanity, united, have accomplished what no others in the world have done before. We stand in the vast glory of our accomplishments, on the shoulders of giants, with the thanks of many and the sacrifices of even more. Here, we present our greatest work yet...

Nostalgia is remembering things that you thought were better than they really are. Then the reality strikes you with the horror it really is.

My stress at ICSE

This was made under duress in 15 minutes in Vancouver using Garageband with people watching over my shoulder and without a good MIDI controller or even an idea of how to use Garageband.

I used drums in this song

posted in OHC035 on May 14, 2009
There's drums in this song and it actually has some kind of structure to it. In a way, that's kind of opposite of "Free for all", since my songs are usually not very structured.
