"Selectro One"

"Selectro One" [mp3 moved to Bandcamp]

Commercial MIDI drum patterns playing sampled 808 kit running underneath "live," MIDI-triggered analog beats (some effected and some not). Song development: pure grid with patterns being turned on and off.

"Electro Groupie"

"Electro Groupie" [mp3 revised and moved to Bandcamp; a "beats only" version is also on Bandcamp]

Similar to "Selectro One" in setup but with a little more conventional song structure and less weird effects. In all these recent songs I am letting the drums and effects sounds determine the melodies.

"Secret Skyway"

"Secret Skyway" [mp3 removed]

Before garageband there were garage bands.

Trance loop (effected and not) running under "live" MIDI-triggered analog beats (some effected but most not).

"Digital Wrongs Management"

"Digital Wrongs Management" [mp3 moved to Bandcamp]

Took "Broomlike (Remix)," subtracted the bass line and added some new percussion parts. A MIDI pattern is triggering a commercial software drum kit as well as an analog rhythm box. In the latter some of the beats are getting live effects treatment using an insert cable to a laptop running Reaktor as a standalone plugin host.

Update: A couple of slight tweaks to remove bad rubs between sounds.
