2013_0511 : Nosedive Into The Future (Mix 2)

2013_0511 : Nosedive Into The Future (Mix 2)

An ambient ethereal studio collaboration touted as Cowboy Joe vs. Julie Android which produced some dark and elegaic drums, bass and piano. I created the track in one afternoon, while pursuing an experiment to apply some ambient shimmers to some guitar and piano, and I wanted a track to play with. The guitar was the […]

2011_0219 : Dirty Guitar Jam
2008_0916 : Trubblestep

2008_0914 : Wombast

It’s a brisk but short walk to the local perk shop for a mocha latte, when you know you’re about to turn back and finish up a jaunty, whirly-swirly little piece of tripnotica like this one soon as you get back… All produced in the span of an afternoon to illustrate the coffeehouse clientele for […]

2008_0914 : Criphop

More mellotrons sing their downtempo birdsong, over a breakbeat-blue-sky groove… Another wistful little piece of trip-hop composed on a seasonable autumn afternoon…

2008_0909 : Curtailed

Fragments of playfully jazzy hip-hop, colliding with a descending, feel-good bass line… Something I wrote quickly, while the sun disappeared behind the clouds that afternoon…

2008_0907 : Puss

A work in progress which confirmed my interest in writing some deeper, heavier, repetitively “circling” motifs, which could be given a later use in urgent espionage drama. “…Agent Reese flies propulsively through the air, catapulting past dozens of sniper rifles as he zones in upon his target, a thin, waif-like young thing who cuddles her […]

1993_0818 : Un Moment, S.V.P.

I’ve always heard a high tenor voice singing a melodic lead over the top of this (perhaps in the style that Belgian composer Wim Mertens does so well)… It’s always crossed (a bit too dangerously) into Supertramp-kind of territory, with the easy transitions between major and minor 7ths in a few of the chord changes. […]

1992_1207 : Trocadèro No. 2

“Trocadero” (1 & 2) are a little bit of me, where Erik Satie and Vini Reilly (Durutti Column) might intersect. I recall composing this as a bedroom-musician and it was all about the loss of love at a time when something big was about to happen and something else big had just recently happened. It […]

1990_1212 : Held (Cynthia Netherland’s Theme)

Another favorite piece from the 3 Mains project. I wrote it much later in the year 1990, as I was winding up the album and was finding that I could no longer escape piano music. It was also a reaction to the Suzanne Vega song Fifty Fifty Chance. Marie was a fan of hers, and […]
