This track was was conceived from a recorded improvised session. The recording was then developed, refined and remixed, It features stylized vocal chops over a steady bass line. Guitars, arpeggiated strings and other organic elements complement the laid-back mood.

A Track I produced when re-visiting a decade-old seed idea.

A track produced as part of a Music Producers Group. Musicians were given a small set of samples to work with. Samples and sounds were manipulated and modified in various ways. The track also contains “found sounds” such as steak knives rubbing/scraping each other.

An experimental track with a lower bpm than I usually produce. The layered pads and supporting rhythms, sound effects and processed unique vocals make it somewhat haunting.

A mixture of tribal beats, electronica and African vocal samples.

Collaboration with Calypso artist Roger Gibbs back in 2005 or so. In the studio, we took turns choosing a patch/sound, adding to the track as we went along.

The lyrics are an excerpt from an ancient Irish poem called “Song of Amergin”. It was in a book in my bookshelf and we just went with it.

A track produced as part of a Music Challenge. Music producers were given a set of sounds and samples which we could manipulate in any way.

The leads were made from a single sound/note and massaged with effects, pitch, etc. To make my the track more organic I used a text-to-speech utility to add the voices. The result was a Krafwerk-ish sparse track.

The message of the track is: Play with fire…take chances.
