Nine Inch Niles 2.0 – The Crane That Feeds

New recording, and new video! I’ve put together, again mostly automatically, a rough clone of the NIN single “The Hand That Feeds” using, again for reasons that mostly escape even me, random sitcom audio. Samples from Frasier used to rebuild NIN tracks never sounded better! Which is not saying much! Here’s the music track in […]

Nine Inch Niles – The Seattleward Spiral

So what started yesterday as a silly photoshop joke turned, today, into a silly computational music generation sort-of-joke. The Seattleward Spiral is a from-scratch, mostly-automatic reinterpretation of Trent et al’s 1994 The Downward Spiral, using nothing but sliced up audio from the NBC sitcom Frasier.

Album released: Inchoatery

Last month’s album is done (and it better be, since February is over), and it’s ready for consumption. Please check out it out: Inchoatery That page has the album available for immediate streaming, plus notes about the album in general and links to more details about (and various demo and sketch versions of) each of […]

Here’s a rough mix of a partly-finished final draft of Pathetic: For comparison, here’s the original scratch demo again: The new recording is much closer to what I had in mind — bass in there tied to the drums somewhat (wish I was better at conceiving […]

New song, new demo

This will be the second to last song on the album, I think, picking up where Meanwhile left off by bringing it back to the protagonist in a letter to his ex that addresses and at least partially closes down some of the hanging threads earlier in the playlist. I’m calling it Rewrite at this […]

Album scratch demos!

After the marathon of recording yesterday (basically from 8am to 6pm, by myself), I didn’t have the time or energy to actually make a post about it last night. So here we go! I’ve recorded ten tracks yesterday, adding up to about 28.5 minutes of material in raw form though there’s a minute or two […]

Where Is My Mind, Theremin edition

While I’m trying to work out a bunch of songs for the album in a month, none of that is really ready for any serious recording yet, and I’ve got a lot of antsiness and musical energy building up in the mean time. And so: time to record a cover. Specifically, the Pixies’ Where Is […]
