Description : I posted this song some time back, but removed it after I entered a consultant agreement on the video with machinma.com. I decided to alter it so I could retain the rights to my music and give it away free. It is a song I made for a portal machinima video. It is only the second song I ever attempted vocals for, but it is fairly popular in the machinima community none the less. If you want to watch the video here is the link:

    I love the sexy 80's vibe your music and vocals gives off, wondering why you don't have as many current tracks on here. Show us more!!!

    Hey Ray

    This track is totally awesome! I really love the pitch bending with vox and the celtic feel. I only know a little about Portal, but this track really does illustrate it for me. Very inspirational work! Excellent and faved for certain!

    hey I wanted to know where did your demo go of your up coming CD? it had a rocking part in it it was like the first 30 seconds of it it was a heavy guitar riff i love that will you be putting that up so we can here it any time? that would be wonderful

    Reply by RayKoefoed

    Sorry Kirb. I took it down. I plan on being finished with the album in the next few weeks and then I will be posting the finished tracks. I think I know which song you are talking about. I have a feeling that will probably be most peoples favorite out of all of them.

    Sweet! I had heard it before after I saw the video for that Machina vid for TrackMania. Brings back good times with Portal. The video's so cool also. That chorus is so damn catchy lol. Hopefully we will get another tune for Portal 2 from ya Ray. Cheers :D

    The video was great for this track, do you still play gmod ray? Cos I'd like to talk to you on it sometime.
    The lyrics are great, must have taken ages to do and I think this is probably the best tribute to portal thats out there.. its the only reason at the moment I miss my xbox (because I can no longer play portal) The chorus singing is great, and it sounds like one of the turrets. I like the part about the companion cube, that was my faviroute line in the song.

    I also said a great comment to you about it on youtube, congrats by the way for having over 1 million views on the video.

    I favourited this one because you must have spent a ton of effort on this track, plus more for the video.

    Ste :)

    Reply by RayKoefoed

    Thanks a lot Stephen. I haven't done much with gmod lately. In fact, I don't even have any of my HL2 stuff on my PC anymore. I have kind of been trying to move on to making original cut out type animations to avoid the copyright issues with machinima videos. I am sure it would be fun to hang out with you in the game, but the truth is that I never set up the Steam friend thing. I only played it off line to avoid all of the extra addons uploaded from other people that would have slowed things down worse then they already are.

    Thanks again for the very nice review and comment on YouTube. Feel free to send a friend invite to me there if we aren't already friends on YT.

    Listened to this halfway while I was reviewing your website, and then watched the video in full. Thats cool, but as I am not familiar with half life, a lot of it didn't make sense, but to be able to create that was neat. I also checked out your art. The snake bite was interesting and I appreciate the Greek ruin. There is a guy here that draws serious angel warrior stuff. I will get his site if you are interested. I can't draw so I use a camera. www.RussFalkenburg.com. check it out if you get a chance.

    The first time I saw the Taste the Cake machinima, which was several months ago now I believe, I fell in love with this song. Incidentally, this is the very first song from Mr. Ray Koefoed that I heard. It almost got me in the mood to replay Portal just to hear all of GLaDOS's hilarious one liners.

    Reply by RayKoefoed

    thank you Sobea. It is a fun game. I am looking forward to the new portal 2.

    You put great vocal from the girl!!
    finish of track,with Irish tune

    Reply by RayKoefoed

    Thanks again 9Rihter. Yeh, I did some pitch bending and other effects for the chorus. It was meant to sound like the turrets in the game. It is cool you say it sounded Irish, because I always try to go for a celtic sound with string instruments.

    this track be great, man why did not valve get you into their music division?

    Reply by RayKoefoed

    Funny you mention that Anthro. I sent an email to the job department of Valve last weekend (when I learned they are making Portal 2), and said I was applying for the job of making the music for the credits and gave them a link to the video. I of course haven't heard back. It would be great though.

    Thank you for the nice review Smith. I thought it was tough too the first time. I am anxious to see what they do with Portal 2. I know now they are making one.

    The song was awesome. I watched the machinima video aswell it was hilarious...Very very cool.

    Reply by RayKoefoed

    Thank you. For some reason that is the most popular video I have done yet. It is funny, because I sent it to machinima as just an idea for making my own music for videos. I guess I need to go back to making music for fun and stop trying so hard to progress. Anyway, thanks for the nice reply.

    Great track! I played this game and thought wouldn't those voices be cool in a song?

    Reply by RayKoefoed

    Thanks Travis. I know what you mean. The sound effects seemed like they were even meant to be in some kind of strange techno song, to me.

    DextDee on Thu 21st Jan 2010 - 10 years ago

    oh my first love with raykoefoed, always loved this bass man, and yes i remember this track. as soon as i played it again i knew it was familiar b4 the bass came in.
    glad to c it back.


    Reply by RayKoefoed

    Thank you DextDee. It is funny how it works, that bass track was something I just threw together to go with another instrument. The instruments I spend a lot of time on trying to make sound as good as I can don't end up being as good as the ones I don't put much effort into. I haven't quite figured it out yet. It almost seems like music isn't meant to be too fine tuned or tweaked.

    theHumps on Thu 21st Jan 2010 - 10 years ago

    This was very cool and a little different approach with the vocals. There was just the right amount of production in this song, wasn't overdone, just perfect.

    Hi Ray - whats up, my friend?? :D

    man, this one is really great - i really like this style, the vocals (and the pitched one, nice idea) to this beat - real catchy one. the instrumental is top.

    cheers, Frank

    Hey Frank!
    Thanks for the review. Sorry we never got to finish that song we worked on. You are a great guy to work with and very talented. I look forward to hearing more of your stuff.

Description : Today's six track recording of a live song which I've been practicing for several days. I broke many of my own rules when getting this to the product it is now. Times have been rough around here, with pressure building from all sides. You can feel it in the air, and in all the people. I can only hope that after the US election, some of the pressure releases. All tracks recorded simultaneously - Vocals via my 100 Proof Microphone, Monotribe, Beatstep, two modular synth tracks (one beatstep controlled and one by my four step sequencer), Zoom RT-123, 2xKawa circuit bent drum box, Boss RV-3 reverb/delay.

Description : Hello all, finally got around to polishing this track, which came from a collab with FarM (known on here as honkytonk). He provided me with some drum and bass work, and I came back with a demo that was essentially what you are hearing now. I just fixed the tuning and some pops at transitions. The tuning basically thwarted our collab I think, because without really remembering I played the guitar parts tuned to 432 Hz *** http://csglobe.com/music-conspiracy-to-detune-us-from-natural-432-hz-harmonics/ ***
and left all the other instruments at 440 Hz as a result...heh. Sounded much better after fixing that. Anyway it's got some dubstep and industrial most obviously. Yet another song I unconsciously ripped off from Skinny Puppy. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : This if the final mix for all the instrumentation. And yes we're breaking quite a few conventions here. I like my diminished scales.

Description : My grandmother was from Belarus. She was the lone survivor of her family after the Waffen SS massacred everyone in her village during a retreat from the Red Army. She escaped soviet occupied Belarus & through a series of wranglings by the international red cross, found a family to adopt her in New Jersey in 1947. She was 14 years old then. She was the strongest person I ever knew & I miss her terribly. This song is for her.

Description : I recorded this song several weeks ago, live in studio. It was a very spontaneous reaction to some experiences and interactions only an hour or so before.

I recorded the audio tracks, as well as a video on my old digital camera. The video has been up on youtube for a while:


This was recorded with my 100 Proof microphone, Eat Lead Copper modular synth, Breaking Blue tabletop synth, modified Yamaha DD-20, and Zoom RT-123.

In the last couple of days, I finally got around to mixing the audio I had recorded into a better quality rendition. The stems were used as is, simple being mixed a bit and mastered.

Have fun listening!

Description : Here is a new Spivkurl track for all of you to check out! My thought process interprets this as industrial gothic, but it's open to external interpretation. This song's sounds were almost entirely sampled from equipment which I hand soldered, whether it be synthesizer builds or circuit bending. The lead vocals were recorded with the new microphone which I built in the past few days, and I'm happy with the way it interacts with my voice. In fact the only piece of gear used that I didn't build was the microphone for the hook vocals... and they are meant to be unintelligible, as they were recorded spontaneously with a patch I called a Spivocoder (on my modular synth). Uptempo and aggressive, it's definitely my sort of industrial. Please give me your opinions if you have the time! Thanks!

Description : Updated 6 May 2017 - I took a bit of advice from OViea91 in order to enhance the reverb field of the vocals, and I also worked to tame some harsh high end in order to allow the low frequencies and dynamics to shine through more. I think it is an improvement. Downloads allowed now! 21 April 2017 - Here is my latest song, which begin from two directions at once. The lyrics began as a sort sentence written on a calendar photograph, and the music began as my entry to the FL studio "Sytrus Only" competition. I finished the vocals completely freestyle, using my DIY 100 proof microphone. All of the sound design is still the original entry, and thus uses only the Sytrus plugin on FL studio. The arrangement barely changed from the original instrumental (to accommodate the vocals), but the mixing and mastering was updated slightly (since the competition did not allow any effects at all). Being observant can be a real bitch sometimes when you're out there in the world, though sometimes an idea like this can be the flip side of the coin. The song also started me thinking about the literal difference between "Earth" and "World." One seems specific, and one general... though I think that the generalisation can add to the longevity of the relevance of an idea such as this. Thank you for listening!

Description : The results of one of my most intense recording sessions to date. I don't think I've explored a single key this deeply ever before. (G minor for those of you wondering) I pulled out my old Epiphone Les Paul, which I've rebuilt and customized over the years. Typed the original lyrics for the song on a couple text message drafts in my phone, then expanded upon them. Has some dubstep elements which are obvious, but it's at a higher tempo. So I guess there's some gothic and industrial in there too. Thanks for taking a listen! You can get the new Spivkurl album "Charting The Anomaly," which includes this track at the We Are...

Description : This is one sexy track. Bordering NeuroFunk.. I made this heavily sleep deprived and exhausted within a few hours.. Getting to grips with mixing again, how is it on your end? I'm also feeling some tom toms in the intro.. Maybe.. Best enjoyed with headphones :)

Description : I hate Fascism: Inspired by Atari Teenage Riot, David Bowie, Gary Numan, John Fox, NIN, Timbaland, and Ghost.

Description : Drawing on my favourite bands this demo fuses pulsing electronic beats with raw electric guitar, horror movie sound clips and a bit of my singing!

Description : Here's a song that I wrote with my friend. I tried to make a gritty and weird song that also included using my voice as a soundscape. Some sounds are simply me blowing into the mic.I put an insane amount of delay on the vocals and pitch shifted them down 2 semitones as well as adding distortion. Enjoy!

Music:Rick Joanisse/Ty Dumoulin

It's finished! The mix is far, far better, I've added some extras and brought out some sounds that weren't coming through previously. D'ya think it's gig ready?
