Miscellaneous New Tracks

Here are some recent tracks on which I've been working. Some of them are pretty rough, but they get the general idea across. Some of these may end up on my next solo album, Reset Vector: Colorburn

The Canister Remix Project

Before each disbanding, Many Small Functions was to remix a bunch of Canister tracks from the Blame album. We had each worked on several mixes on our own, but no group project ever emerged. Here are a couple of unfinished but listenable remixes that I did.
Title MP3 Info Description
Light (Olestra remix) 3568K [3:47] 128Kbit 44.1KHz Remixed in September, 1998 at Tangent mk II. Contains original multitrack segments from the Blame recording sessions, original sequences, and other random bits and pieces. Remixed using many software tools, rack effects, and an Event Layla/Mackie 32 channel 8-bus console.
Forgotten (sick chick remix) 2672KB [3:15] 96Kbit 44.1KHz Remixed in November, 1998 at Tangent mk II. Contains original multitrack elements from the Blame recording sessions, and other bits and pieces (notably a sample of some deranged girl from a show I caught on cable one day). Remix methods similar to Light.

Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love

I wrote the following songs for MW Rep's production of Brad Fraser's Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love in early 1998. They're fairly simple, short acoustic guitar tracks.

in abstentia

[in abstentia cover] CD tray cover graphics

in abstentia is an album of my solo musical output from various points from the middle of and after my college years (1995-1997). It is not of a single genre, so watch your step. I gave approximately 10 copies of this CD to friends, but it was mainly a personal project to chronicle my progress as a musician. I've put up some of the tracks here. Audio quality varies, as many of these songs were quick one-off's I recorded hastily. It was also before I had a digital studio at home to do recording. I've also severely reduced the MP3 encoder bandwidth and sampling frequency on some tracks (especially the 9 minute ones).

Title MP3 Info Description
solitude [7:10] available on CD only.
transcend 2136KB [4:33] 64Kbit 24KHz Recorded in June, 1996 at 79-17 to 2-track cassette. This track lies somewhere between stuff you might hear on the 4AD record label and something you'd hear on a foreign independent film soundtrack. Sequenced with Cakewalk. Sounds from TX16W sampler and Roland U110 PCM sound module.
out of body, out of mind 4308KB [9:11] 64Kbit 24KHz Recorded in October, 1995 in Founders Hall 410 to 2-track cassette. An ambient meditation, played entirely on an electric guitar and a few footpedal and rack effects. Recorded live, in one take.
daylight spending [9:33] available on CD only.
to the middle 2603KB [5:35] 64Kbit 24KHz Recorded in October, 1997 at tangential studios mk I to 2-track cassette. A slow electronic track with some strange, mutilated vocal samples from the band Canister. Mostly MC202, a PC running Sound Forge, effects, and a Korg Wavestation.
in abstentia 1351KB [2:52] 64Kbit 24KHz Recorded in December, 1996 in Founders Hall 411 to 2-track cassette. A 4ADish track, sequenced in Cakewalk. A Yamaha TX16W sampler and a Roland U110 were used for sounds.
happiness of pursuit 3,530KB [3:46] 128Kbit 44.1KHz Recorded in july, 1997 at tangential studios mk I to 2-track cassette. A basic techno track, featuring the ubiquitous TR606, MC202, Casio RZ-1, Korg Wavestation, and lots of effects. Recorded and mixed live, in one take.
reflex (ceiling mix) [4:11] available on CD only.
autumnsong 2276KB [2:26] 128Kbit 44.1KHz Recorded in october, 1996 in Founders Hall 411 to Tascam 8-track cassette. Mixed down to 2-track cassette. Re-transferred to digital format July 1999. My first somewhat complete acoustic track. I play 2 tracks of acoustic guitar, bass, and some sampled congas and tamborine "live" off of my TX16W sampler & keyboard. Recorded with several overdubs.
things lost [2:46] available on CD only.
mi casa es su madre [1:35] available on CD only.
801SVJ (lament of the dudecraft) 1482KB [1:35] 128Kbit 44.1KHz Recorded in july, 1996 at 79-17 to 2-track cassette. Best described as "funkafied lounge music." This song is dedicated to 801SVJ, the ex-license plate of Mike's ex-vehicle, an ex-1985 Chevy Caprice Classic. Half-fried Roland TR808 samples, and nonsensical chord structures played on a Yamaha DX-21 form the underpinnings for badly played guitar. Dig it. Drums and keyboards sequenced with Cakewalk, guitar played live during mixdown.
Untitled (September 1997) 2802KB [6:49] 56Kbit 24KHz Recorded in September 1997 at tangential studios mk I to 2-track cassette. A rough take of a techno track. Uses TR606, TR707, MC202, effects. Recorded/mixed live in one take. Previously Unreleased.
