Shock Me!

Category: Musical Travesties!Well...Hello There! | No comments

So yeah…I’m on vacation & playing with audio. Many moons ago, I sang in bands. You can find that stuff elsewhere on the site. Today. I was messing around with Ace Frehley’s “Shock Me.” I’ve always been a huge KISS fan, and Ace in particular. I found a DVD from about a decade ago, where he jammed out some of his stuff instrumentally. Through the magic of digital workstations, I’m able to goof around with it.

That said, the original was buried in effects. So, I did the same & played with just about every plugin available. This is what happened.

Have fun!

Cold Gin!

So…this is how my vacation began. I found a DVD of Ace Frehley, jamming with John 5, Chris Wyse, and Matt Sorum. I’ve always loved/wanted to do this song with a band. I don’t have one. So, I threw the tracks into my audio production software, and took a shot at it. One take…warts & all!

grammy

Here’s where I put all the electronic music that I’ve made.  I used a loop-based program that contains hundreds of samples. I played absolutely nothing on these tracks. However, the results are that I’ve proven how little musical ability it takes to actually make a record! This is slightly above video game musical proficiency. But…just barely!

I wrote and arranged everything using little slices of audio. The results are a CD quality collection of electronic music. Hope you enjoy!

What Does This Do?

Category: Musical Travesties! | One comment

This was literally the first thing I ever wrote using loop-based music programming. I had no idea where I was going, or what I was doing with it. This turned out to be my favorite piece. I think everything else I’ve done, has sort of  been chasing this. Lots of stuff layered in, and really fun to do. I really should get some more sample discs though. I literally had a basic sample CD, and one of slightly more Electronica stuff. Spent a few hours playing around and came up with what you’re hearing. Hope you enjoy!

Pick Up Line Hum

Category: Musical Travesties! | One comment

This was my attempt to create an example of a cool piece of “Electronica ” based upon a humming undertone that carried through the entire piece. My favorite part of this is the random sax solo. I have no idea why I thought it needed a sax solo. But…I think it worked. Now, there appears to be an entire radio format, dedicated to this sound. Who knew?
