Travels in Digital Sands

If you like the music please purchase for $5 at Bandcamp. Your support is the only way I get to keep going. This album was done fairly quickly coming out of T.V. Treated. That period with all the tutorials and pieces that weren't mine (not to mention a film or two) was great in that… Continue reading Travels in Digital Sands

T.V. Treated – TV Themes given the Benedict Treatment

This is a bit of an exercise and not a serious album outing. I think the cover & pricing shows that. First up, the title is unashamedly lifted from the Neon Judgement track of the same name. Not related in any other way except that these are my treatments of some TV Theme tunes. I… Continue reading T.V. Treated – TV Themes given the Benedict Treatment

Triumph & Tragedy is all about Stories of Humanity. The subjects of the stories may be Gods & Myths but they are all expressions of how we behave as humans. Our strengths, weaknesses, successes & failings, triumphs & tragedies. Each of these stories was chosen because they show a triumph leading to a tragic outcome.… Continue reading Triumph & Tragedy

Two-Part Invention No. 1 – Bach

This was common then for musicians, as it has become again. Most Indi musicians make more as teachers than they do as musicians. I learned… Continue reading Two-Part Invention No. 1 – Bach

Toccata & Fugue in D Minor – Bach

https://youtu.be/ZHlRJxas8EY It was 50 years ago today (well almost) Wendy Carlos released what was to be for ages the best selling Classical record of all time called "Switched-On Bach". For a while, it was even outselling The Beatles! The Moog Modular was in its infancy. Wendy was pals with Bob Moog and they traded ideas… Continue reading Toccata & Fugue in D Minor – Bach
