A Matter Of Degrees

2009 Perpetual Emotion Machine from Chain, Chain, Chain This is one of those songs where I started working on a track solely because I wanted a track to have a certain title. ‘It’s a matter of degrees’ was honestly the answer I got when I asked a soon to be former girlfriend if she still loved […]

Chain, Chain, Chain

2009 Perpetual Emotion Machine from The Unforetold / Released as a Single Like Lullabye, from Omega, I wrote this for my daughter. In fact, the words suggest I wrote it to her, almost like a conversation I was having with her in my mind. At the time I wrote this, I was separated from her by […]

┬┐Como Estas?

1998 EtherReal from Bite Me There was a very clear (and shameless) purpose for creating this track, and that was to utilize the drum sample I lifted from John Cougar‘s Jack And Diane — the entire song was built around it, as well as other samples I lifted from CDs. This was the MO for […]

Bad Day

2009 Perpetual Emotion Machine from The Unforetold / Released as a Single Bad Day was the second song written for the 2009 album The Unforetold, and probably the piece I’ve spent the most time on since The Flight Deck. The track originated from several fronts and inspiration points. Actually, the whole concept of the track originally stemmed from […]

The Flight Deck

The Flight Deck Suite is the centerpiece for the Omega album. Combined with Reunion, the song tells the story how events converged and combined to turn a potentially happy situation 180 degrees in a matter of hours. The details of the events in question are far too personal to get into in this forum, but […]

(I Think I’m Gonna) Rave

1994 EtherReal from Pieces of 8 This song was born from my affinity to rave music and techno artists such as SL2, NRG and Westbam. There is a lot of stuff going on in this track and doesn’t really follow a cohesive flow, but somehow it still works. EtherReal (I Think I’m Gonna) Rave This […]

Restless, Restless

1994 EtherReal from Pieces of 8 This was probably the last track I did before upgrading my software and starting to do stuff from home. It’s a great sounding bassline with some club/house percussion that I’ve always wanted to redo into something more substantial, but so far no joy. The only thing about this I […]

Restless, Restless

1995 EtherReal From Pieces Of 8 This was probably the last track I did before upgrading my software and starting to do stuff from home. It’s a great sounding bassline with some club/house percussion that I’ve always wanted to redo into something more substantial, but so far no joy. The only thing about this I […]

Mag 6.7

When it was decided that my young daughter and her mother were moving out to the west coast, I was launched into all sorts of fears. My main aversion to that area is earthquakes (irrational thought it may be). Sometime before they had made the decision, there was a tectonic event with a Richter of […]

Mente Y Locura (Jazz Hands)

This is a short electro-funk piece from Omega, slid in number four. I’m not entirely sure about the origins of this track — but I’m aware that I wanted to illustrate the idea that I was trying hard to keep busy during my depression and anxiety states in an effort to keep them at bay. […]
