I've been loving the Spitfire LABS strings so very much, I decided to try writing a semi-conventional piece, intended to be a little modern in structure ad flow but also directly referencing some of my mom's favorite Vivaldi when the second solo kicks in.

There's a cinematic feel all through the piece, loved it :) And yes, the Vivaldi-inspired melody is very energetic. I'm also glad to hear classical instruments with this challenge.

Nice! Definitely not what I expected for my first listen this morning. I like how Vivaldi kicks in strong around the 2:40 mark and how you've arranged the piece.

That's awesome, Cailen! I'm digging how this is like Vivaldi and boogie-woogie at the same time!

The strings sound really, really great--a lot of which is how you've orchestrated it, particularly that section from 1:30 or so on. Very nicely done! (I've definitely been into the LABS soft piano.)

Ah yes I could hear the vivaldi string there. It's nice to hear classical music in a weekly streak!

happy 52 y'all! catch you on the flip side.

Rudimentary 4 track sketch. Sort of Johnny Cash meets sludgepunk?

quick little sketch

a quick quasi-ambient joint

forgot to upload Sunday, but i did this over the past weekend.

someone talked me into doing some hip hop beats over the week, it was interesting and fun. I seem to fall into the "dark trap" category most easily,

(ack, had this cued up Sunday and never hit submit)

Back on a sorta synthpop kick. I also finally downloaded Valhalla SuperMassive, wonderful reverb and echo for free!

two layers of crappy finger drumming (one ezdrummer, one ableton stock "blueprint kit" plus a four count shaker loop to tie it together
bass through camelcrusher as always
guitar through guitarrig5 plus ableton stock reverb and delay for the "lead"

i went camping this week :)

here, have a golden apple

finishing up my little EP sized collection of vaguely "early industrial" homage tracks.

one has a bit of maybe stoner metal in it, and the other was probably influenced by my partner spinning a Cure playlist the other day (the arp at least)

lyrical nod to Murder, inc in "subliminal prototype"

it seems this week's episode of "crimes against beloved musical genres" targets early alt-rock

(my phone's music detection feature agrees, in so much that it basically accused me of plagiarism but hey...)

doubling down on my early 90s industrial vibe experiment. this one is a riff on a Robert Frost piece.

another "twofer". the first one seemed too much like a sonic rut i'm stuck in so i tried something consciously different
