Various musical delights

Here’s an update on my journey in composing electronic music: a selection of songs from the last couple of months… Now, watch me struggle trying to describe the songs and genres!

I Want the Sun Back

Let’s start it off easy with some pretty gloomy and dark ambient.

Slim Mind

It starts out as drum and bass but then starts drifting in another direction. That seems to be pretty common for me when I try to do drum&bass. Jyri U. recorded a few guitar things for this to beef up the background near the end.

Acid Rock

I started working on a remix of a silly old Belgian techno song but it ended up pretty damn far away from the original. But I don’t mind that at all. Psytrance.

Genera

Experimenting with a little bit more laid back and progressive sort of sound.

Dark Deeds

Another experiment in the progressive and deep side of psy. I feel I have committed something unholy by using a dubstep wobble bass sound in a trancey tune.

Breaking of symmetry

This is dubstep, I suppose.

Phew. That’s 43 minutes of music right there! Come to think of it, I could’ve turned this into a nicer package; a digital LP with cover graphics and some more polishing, mixing and coherent mastering… Well, maybe later. If you want all the songs, here’s a ZIP package with the MP3s above!

Font fun time

Lately I’ve been dabbling a little bit with Fontstruct. It’s a nice browser application for building your own fonts by laying blocks on a grid and it’s a perfect match for people like me who might want to fool around a little bit with typefaces without committing to the craft entirely by buying FontLab and sacrificing a basket of fruits on the altar of Helvetica.

Here’s a couple gimmicky fonts I created. You can download & abuse them by visiting my Fontstruct profile.
