Drizzle

A musical composition

 

A nice little piano and drums instrumental piece. It has a laid-back band feel – sort of like what you might play after closing time when everyone else but the bartender has been booted out. Course, its just me on the synth doing multi-track, and I never had time to join a band, but anyway, that doesn’t mean I can’t get into the same groove from time to time.

A musical composition

 

This ethereal piece with synthesizer has an Asian mystic feel. I like the slow pace of it and the depth of the low notes, contrasted by the Asian style string lead that comes in during the second iteration. This one always reminds me a bit of the music of Vangelis – especially off the “China” album.

Murkey

A musical composition

 

Haunting synthesizer piece and my current “theme song.” I don’t know, I just find this recording mesmerizing with its strange reflective melancholy yet uplifting combinations of sounds. This is a concept piece. It is made of three simple tracks – piano, bass woodwind, and strings. The design is intended to have the indistinct bass rise gradually in volume over the course of the entire recording until it eventually obscures the other two tracks, making the whole thing “muddy” and hence the title, “Murkey” as if recorded in a Murky Key.
