New Track Added: A Train Goes By

This is my submission for The Piano Cloud’s Haiku Challenge.

A haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. The haiku that inspired this track is:

A train goes by,
its smoke curling
around the new tree leaves
– Masaoka Shiki

New Track Added: The Mermaid’s Reverie

It’s been a long while since I’ve written any new music. This track was written mainly just to get me back into the swing of things and to try out some new mixing and effects techniques. Enjoy! (^_^)

New Track Added: Tale of the Exotic

This is my contribution for the second stage of the Piano Cloud‘s Wedding Challenge part 3 (Something Borrowed). This part of the challenge involved “borrowing” someone else’s piece of music (submitted during the previous stage) and doing our own interpretation of it.

The original piano music is by Brad Stark and is available here:

Spectrogram Scroll-text Demo

This was an experiment to see if I could display text within a spectrogram. I used Spectrasonics’ Omnisphere synth to generate sine waves at various frequencies to construct the characters. I used Renoise to program the letters, numbers, etc. as individual patterns and then sequenced these patterns to form words. iZotope’s Insight was used as the spectrogram.
