First some photos I took recently. I really like the one with the moon because it counterplays the street lights below.
Been pretty busy in the studio recently. I got myself a new synth - a Midi Moog - which in a Mini Moog rack-mounted and midified. Following are four new songs I made over the last few months. The UFO one I posted already, but this time it's a high quality mp3.
Robots - this one I made fairly quickly, but had a lot of fun doing so and it came out pretty well for my standards ;) It sounds very Kraftwerky - well - it's got synths and is about robots. It features a Roland SH-09, Roland RS-09 and a Korg MS-10.
Secret Nazi Rug - someone who I was friends with for years suddenly went crazy and really hurt me for no good reason. I made this song to get over it and hey - it worked. Please understand that I was really mad when I made this - that will explain the chorus.
Features the most extensive vocal work I've ever done ( that's not saying much) and the usual gaggle of synths - including the Midimoog on bass and accompanying keyboard. Some people don't like the Autotune effect but I had to give it a try - especially since my singing was so off.
Traktrak - this one I made fairly quickly. Most interesting thing might be me playing two synths (RS-09 & RH-09) at once in the first melody part. My favourite part is the crazy synth solo in the second part. I kept switching the octaves up and down while paying and gives it a bit of an over-the-top feeling.
UFO - my first try at vocals after a long time. Lil' fun song
Please enjoy. I make those purely for the joy of creating them. I don't claim that they're professional or anything, but they might be entertaining - please give them a try! :)

Hey. Long time no see. I've been laying low recently. Work was bearing very hard on me and sucked out all the little creative juice I had left in me. I am now recuperating. Taking time off. Relaxing. Thinking. Switching off. We'll see what comes of it. I'll let you know.
