Black Coffee is finally being released to the public. This song started back in early 2012 but something was missing from it. After coming back to it every now and then, I think it’s now complete. This song features a latin based percussion set with synths and harpsichords. The melody uses a reggae style rhythm throughout the song which was inspired by a jam sesh with my buddy Drew and his acoustic guitar. Enjoy a sip of some Black Coffee!!
It’s been while since I’ve released a composition and for good reason too. I’ve been researching how to equalize and master each track to bring out the best of each instruments voice and character. The Dark King’s Castle is about this fortress covered in cob webs and built fully out of stone. You can hear a ghostly evil pipe organ echoing off the walls coming from deep within the dark pits of the castle. As the song progresses, you navigate through the different rooms…
This class project on music was about bringing back the 90’s and showing where society is today. There were some great melodies. Maybe not so much on the lyrics but the music was good. I’ve decided to make some arranged versions of some of the most catchy tunes. I’ve noticed that I’m not the only one sneaking in old progressions. I can safely assume that everyone is trying to preserve the classics, keeping them fresh. Whether it was done justice, is another story.
Darkness Rising is a laid-back chill song. Everything is slow and relaxed as the darkness rises. At the very end of the song, dawn comes and there is liberation across all land. It’s all symbolic of course.
Counterfeit people is dedicated to all the people who say horrible things behind people’s backs and don’t have the balls to confront them and say it to their face. You all know who you are; I’m not an idiot and I’m quite aware of what lying smile is being said to my face. I can at least have respect for an honorable disagreement.
A new 90’s pop song remixed from the past. Can you guess which song it came from?
Here is an 1800’s sounding song. The main instruments are guitars and harpsichords with a few modern synths thrown into the mix. This creates a very odd sounding song, which is where the name, Sideways Hatter, came from. I imagine a man in a suit with a top hat and cane, strutting down an olde street with a kink in his neck. Its quite a strange image, but that is what the song says to me.
Here is one of my first jazz pieces.
