"On My Way"

Instruments: Bass, Guitar, Flutes, Clarinets, Vibes, Drums

Feel: Bright, Calming, Grooving

If you're not adding to the narrative; get out of the way! This piece gets out of the way... You can put it under any monolog, dialog, timelapse... actually, with a timelapse, you could probably find something a little more interesting with some pacing, or something. So... this is for those sure nice videos. Guaranteed* to offend as few people as possible! *"Guaranteed" is used in this context for entertainment purposes only.

Feel: Driving, Grooving

Before you complain about the bass, that is the entire point of this mix. It is scary-bass... yet somehow subdued. If this bass was a car, it would be a cement mixer... That's a terrible analogy. Forgetting for the moment that a cement mixer isn't a car... I guess they have the ones that are mounted on big trucks - and those trucks share a lot in common with cars, you know steering wheels, engines, tires, and the soon-to-be-anachronistic internal combustion engine. Anyway, if you don't like the bass you can pretty easily EQ it to a reasonable level, or buy the stems and remix it yourownself. Before you complain about the use of the word "yourownself", I wrote it. You understood it. It is a word. There is also some dreamy flute in here.

A rousingly comedic romp on the dark side of Dixieland music, featuring a wonderfully questionable trumpet player!

What makes a Bossa Nova a Bossa Nova? Whatever it is, this has it double! Or maybe it is just compensating for its relatively simple chord progression. Enjoy your Bossa! Probably. Probably a Bossa Nova.

Welcome to the lobby of the FUTURE! Luxurious automatic ashtrays, and modern green vinyl furnishings set off the shag carpeted walls. Enjoy a Rusty Nail from our cheerful bar staff (with a complimentary cheese and fruit plate before 5pm). We feature prime rib dinners every day that ends in a "y"! Remember to tip the bellhops at least 5 cents per bag. Enjoy your stay! This was written 2 years before it was published, because I didn't have a good enough upright bass sample to make it go.

A little aggressive, a little chill, a little groovy, a little cool. Not entirely appropriate for all occasions, but in the right context - it may be just what you need! This is the "Goth 7th-Grader" of the music world. The instrument with the sharp chord hits is the mighty Mellotron, which is a pre-sampler sort of analog keyboard attached to a bunch of tape players. I cheated. This one is digital.

This piece was built almost entirely with arpeggiators. What does that mean for you? Probably nothing. But holy man! Does this sound like it is from 1983! So, pop a tape of "Flashdance" in your VCR... and then spend like 8 minutes rewinding it... because, apparently your cousin couldn't be bothered to do that. Seriously, Sally! You did the same thing when I lent you "Smokey and the Bandit II", and I didn't say anything because you had a hard week, but still managed to make the Jell-o Salad with the grapes for the family reunion... which was nice. Anyway, I'll probably just get you one of those $20 tape rewinders they have at Radio Shack for your birthday. I also enrolled you in the Battery of the Month Club. You're welcome.

Upbeat, bright, and super catchy! Just try not to rap to this piece! TRY IT! You can't, can you! I mean... I can, but I've been training to not rap my entire life. It started with me not-rapping in my childhood in the upper midwest. My lack-of-rapping hit a new high while on a high school band trip to Disneyworld, and was again bolstered in a crazy non-rap filled Spring Break in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. There's just something about not-rapping and industrial forestry...

Jazzy! Gumshoe-y! Mystery-y! I suck at making adjectives. Who needs adjectives anyway! I'm fine without adjectives. How fine without adjectives, you may ask? I can't say - as that would require some sort of descriptor! And I don't need descriptors in my writings... Maybe one... tiny little... NO! What am I thinking!? I refuse! I've completely had it with adjectives! Hah! Adverbs work perfectly fine! Woohoo! Adverbs! And before I get mail... adjectives killed my family, so I can go off on them all I want.

Cross Hip-hop with Shoegaze and what do you get? That was not a joke. That was the description of this piece. If you have a show that opens with a shoegaze band, and then headlines a hip-hop group you could use this as the clever bridge between them! Also, you should immediately fire the concert manager. That was a terrible idea. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
