This page is a collection of songs which I have recorded. All of the instrumentation on these tracks has been done by me, unless otherwise notated. All tracks have also been mixed and mastered by me.
This song is an electronic piece titled "Dr. Steve Brule Takes Halloween." It is a combination of two of my favorite things, Dr. Steve Brule (a John C. Riley character), and Halloween (my favorite holiday). In this piece, I try to emulate Halloween. It is a bit of a spoof; however, I used a plethora of new techniques in this project, and actually learned a lot about myself as an electronic music composer through writing this. I start off with a simple dubstep beat, and than I move into more of a UK Hardcore dance piece, in effort to startle the listener, all in the fun spirit of Halloween.
This song is one of my tracks off of my upcoming EP. It's titled "Stupid Again". I wrote this song about halfway into my junior year, and recorded it with my friend David Winkert around January of 2015. I tracked all the instruments, and David sang. I also mixed/mastered all of the tracks. This song will always hold a special place in my heart because it was the first song I had ever recorded. Of course, the original demo was recorded over a year ago, in December of 2013. Before the tracking process, David and I had not gotten to become very close friends. However, through the tracking process, we became very close and developed a friendship that has carried through the last two years.
This is a screen shot of the final mix session window in ProTools, the DAW that I use for all of my recordings.
This is a song that I wrote this January, and decided to record, once again, with my friend David Winkert. I am responsible for all the instrumentation, and mixing/mastering, and David is the singer.
This is a track that I composed entirely in ProTools. It was heavily influenced by DeAngelo's "Alright" off of his debut album "Brown Sugar". See my influences page for more about that album. I recorded all of the tracks except for the drums, which I programed in ProTools. The song was also entirely mixed and mastered by myself. I really like this song and regard it to be my magnum opus of my work in music technology so far. I'm not necessarily thrilled with the guitar solo at the end, or the tone of the guitar, but for right now I'm happy with it.
