I Know There’s a Better Way

August 6, 2009 Leave a comment

I wrote something new a little while ago and recorded it the other day..
(Thought I’d upload it today, Since its Hiroshima Day.)

I’m pretty happy with it. It’s even got a little Zulu bit in the second verse. Yay!

I’m still not entirely happy with my recording though. I’m still getting major background noise from the PC, but I suppose for rough little demos it’s ok. I tried messing around with overdubbing some extra layers of vocals, but otherwise no extra digital stuff. Just guitar and vocals.

My pretty little scribblings

July 6, 2009 1 comment

Just a couple of pages from my notebook.. I tend to write very erratically, and its nice to have a little rough page to jot my ideas down on. The downside is of course, that its often really hard to find a particular song or idea I’m looking for when I want to come back to it, and I often forget to write down the chords with the accompanying lyrics and that kind of thing, but hey.. C’est la vie.

Fire Escapes

Been messing around with Fruity Loops, trying my hand at arranging some oldish songs I wrote maybe six months to a year ago..

Its really fun.. Composing piano pieces, drum beats, guitar parts to spice them up a bit..

Well here’s one I’ve been working on since about Thursday last week (when I wasn’t playing Sims 3!!), Super stoked with how it came out! There are a couple little problems, like the third verse fading out completely! Dunno what happened there! Oh well..

Wow it feels good to be on holiday!!

Now I finally have some time off to do all the things I wish I could do during the term.. Like write music!!

I’ve been doing some little home recordings lately. Its a really cool feeling to commit something to tape (well, hard drive), I dunno, I can’t really explain it unless you know it. Its kinda like the feeling you get in primary school when the teacher pins your little crayon drawing up with everyone else’s from the class, and you just think: Hey! That’s me up there!

Its just kinda cool when you’re listening to your ipod on shuffle and every now and then one of your songs (no matter how bad the quality), comes on..

I write quite a lot.. Not for a while, because of Varsity stuff, but usually I do. I write mostly for my band, which I just restarted after a bit of a break (We’re STILL thinking of a name), but I also write a lot of folky acoustic songs, and sometime last year I started messing around with loop software, producing some electro kind of stuff, which is pretty fun too actually!

The acoustic stuff tends to sound like this:

Hiroshima Sunrise – Myspace

Sorry.. I tried to upload it straight onto WordPress, But you have to buy an upgrade to host music. Sigh. So I made a quick Myspace profile.. There some more songs here:

If you enjoy them please let me know..
