Description : mrrobot sent me an email asking me if I'd like to sing over this cover he did of Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence. My answer was an emphatic "yes". I did my own mix mainly because it gave me something to focus on after a bad week here... and sent him my vocals to do his own thing with as well. I am posting this mix so people can see how different they came out. Oh and mrrobot, thanks again for asking me to do this with you :)
Description : Now I got the hang of it.... PLEASE RATE!!!!
Description : The big both advantage and disadvantage about being so new to this medium for making music is that I don't know genres very well. It can be confusing at times not knowing what to call my songs... but it also frees me of constrictions when I'm creating cause I'm not mentally telling myself "HEY you can't do that!!" So anyway... here's my new track. It was all done with VSTIs aside from the beat (which came from Breakbeat Paradise) I even got brave and composed a solo (a first for me) and did my basslines etc from scratch. Even if everyone that listens to this hates it lol... I feel very accomplished right now mainly because I've learned so much since I first opened Acid Pro. I am living proof that anyone with a stubborn streak and love for music can at least ATTEMPT these programs ;-) The lyrics came from life experience... suppose it's kinda the flipside of my last track.
Description : At the start,we all need an influence and this is mine.Cam's a lifelong mate who would stroll into any bar...find a piano and change everyone's day......let him change yours......
Description : A unique opportunity arose for me last weekend to meet one of my all time saxophone hero's. I had arranged for all of my pupils on woodwind to have master classes with Snake Davis. Now some of you might know him, but I can imagine the majority of you are saying WHO! Well this guy plays with the cream, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse,Lisa Stansfield,M People ect.... One of the things which came out of these five sessions was the ability to play solo, no band or instruments, just one saxophone holding a melody/solo with chord changes, and making sure it sounds good. So hey ho I gave it a bash this morning and recorded this first time through, I'm really happy with it and if you all agree, then I will chop it into loops so you can all play as well, cheers Slap...
Description : Lots of Sampling going on here, drums loops, wah wah guitar, the rest is me on guitar and vocals, bro on bass, glenn on keyboard, My tracks always start as an acoustic song, I build up from there see where it goes, this is where this song took me, xx
Description : Monnbeams was written out in the semi desert areas out of burra, there was a full moon as so inspired the words. The music came years later, just something clicked. The recording was done at horrastudios, produced by Glenn Wagland and myself, we were both just beginning our recording journey, this was done in 2002. Cooledit pro , I do believe, its has its flaws production wise, but is a favourite on my myspace. Musicality wise , wonderful piano played by Glenn in the intro, all the vocals and guitar , bass by myself, I'm a singer songwriter , not an instrumentalist so be kind to me, hope you enjoy!
Description : this song was written spontaneously, when listening to a Jann Arden loop, and it was made with mixcraft 3 at the time. once mixed down to mp3, I used some FX, from SOny Vegas, and hope u like it
Description : part 2 of 1 - This song is about inevitable change that happens slowly, the undetectable metamorphosis of everything around us, the erosion of solid rock by water, the decaying of bones, the shapeshifting of people from humans to animals etc., etc, It's constant, It's everywhere, look around, it's right before your eyes. thanks to mrrobot for the sample
Description : I wrote and put together this one kind of overnight back in the summer... was actually my first full song done with Acid Pro. I used samples from all over the net to put together the music. Once I got the beat together, the lyrics just sort of came to me. I went back and remixed it later because there was a ton of clipping (definitely showing my newbie colors).
Description : I really like the sub bass on this track, so I thought I would share it with you all. Drums and percussion are sonic foundry loops, everything else is the Slap...
Description : More fun stuff.....I added a screamin' guitar and my son chimes in with a whalin' harmonica solo(he's 3)....I got my wife in there for some back ups too.....Molly is our dog and yes she ate our Thankgiving pie off the kitchen table...we almost last her that day..LOL

Description : When the shit really hit the fan! A song of hope when the whole world turned black for my mate and his family. Slap on piano and vocals, piano and vocal recorded live, then I dropped some strings high up at the end of the song to add the feeling of hope.
Have some tissues ready....
Description : this is a track inspired by the intro of herbie hancockÃ‚Â´s "butterfly"...
welcome to the buzzy space of a big cyberfly...
Description : Hey everyone! I wrote this track yesterday (it took the whole day..!) and as per my usual method, there are no less than 3 drum lanes. This a nice mixture of chill out verses intensity. Once again, the drums take precedence but there are many things happening in the mix. There is a rather nice 'bridge' piece and i've tried to do some different things in the breaks and stalls. Also - i've added some ambient elements. A little different if i do say so myself. I hope everyone enjoys and please drop me some comments..!
Description : One of my favs. Just a chill beat to fall back too.
Down tempo, simple, funky!
That's what it do!
Description : one of my older tracks...born in time i was making music with dj fisha...she chose some drum loops for this instrumental...a bit dark piece about deep things inside...close your eyes and enjoy...:)
Description : my first track inspired by drum and bass style (recorded in summer 2006 at my home studio)...i used samples and played the el.guitar and bass guitar parts...software ableton live 6...
Description : Veden todellisuus is finnish and rather exact translation would be the Ã¢â‚¬Âreality of waterÃ¢â‚¬Â. Imagine a late afternoon at the beach in the end of a summer. Suddenly you realize, that you will not come back anymore in this summer. If temperature were measured, there would not be a noticeable change, but something in the air and especially in the water tells that the autumn is coming.
Description : Imagine yourself floating in a pool your ears in water so everything your hear is coming through water
Description : relaxed down beat ,jazz influenced solo part and a little bit calypso feel , remixed in audio logic

Description : A slightly more lengthy track than my others and a little slower. Expect heavily distorted instruments and break beats. I spent a lot of time on the little extras such as panning, pitch bending, tiny fills and stalls - most of which are on the beats. The overall effect brings to mind mild ambience with hard percussion. Feedback, suggestions and crits are integral to my existence ;)
Description : smooth groove
