As an amateur musician for years/decades, I used to play guitar and bass in mostly punk grunge bands in Japan. I have started being serious at last with recording music since joining Weekly Beats in 2020 and am trying to continue with this good habit. :)

All work done in FL studio, and most of the samples I use come from Splice.

Last track of the year! I went back to good old breakbeats and glitch!

For those who join on Weekly Beats 2024, see you there! :)
For the others, hope to see you around!

The title is from reading Max Tegmark's Mathematical Universe. Where science is more mind blowing than the wildest SF.

Not unhappy about this track, which goes into weird wild directions.

I am changing a bit my workflow to reignite inspiration. I decided to start finding some riff on guitar and build from there. I kinda like the result, and I like that it was a fresh approach for me.

By the way, unfortunately, no - large sauropods could not whip their tail at supersonic speed, even though some paper of 1997 claimed they could. This is fortunate, as the aforementioned tail would have snapped. Have no doubt though that a good tail whip could still hurt unreasonably well.

I was pretty good this week at finding good excuses not to work on a track. I spent a grand 44 minutes on this one, and it does feel like it. Ok, especially for the upcoming Weekly Beats 2024, I need to get back to start a track early in the week, put more love and inspiration in it rather than a quickly produced simple track.

This started as a music about mazes, then kinda went into trip-hop territory before going back synthwave. A dog cannot be a cat, however hard they try.

A baroque vibe for this track inspired by Castlevania. I ran out of time and could not really clean up this track. The structure and the mixes are pretty raw. It's missing some frequencies here and there, some transitions are abrupt. But hey, time's up for me this week.

Synthwave + electric guitars + fx samples! Kinda inspired by the anime Akira, but not really at the same time.

I had to scratch that metal itch.

An Halloween themed track for this week.

A rather lazy track but at least thematically appropriate for the season.

Ok back on my feet and with my DAW. I worked on this track this Saturday mainly. It would fare better with a few more hours of work. I think it's like 70% done of where I'd like a track to be, but i kinda already enjoy it more than a lot of tracks i have done over the past few months.

This is only a recording of ambient sound. Last week, my father passed away. I recorded quickly the Silence track of last week, before going to take my plane to bury him.

One week later, the aftermath. Time to go back home. I am sitting a last time in the calm aftermath recording the sound of that final night, as life seems to continue, even though the silence now sounds a bit different. Time to go home.

I started the track on Saturday morning. I wanted to first try out making a set of percussions using FPC, and setting a wide panning of the different instruments. The percussions ended up being a set of traditional sounds, so it felt appropriate to dig into my Native Instruments library for a set of traditional instruments. I went for the middle eastern package, and used the Oud (a guitar like instrument) and the Zurna (a type of flute). I have a great love for the complex harmonies and rhythms of middle eastern music! This started reminding me of the band Secret Chiefs 3, so I went in and dug some electronic samples and arps to get into that. Some additional vocal samples, shake it, 30 minutes in the oven, and here you go.

Back on my computer, for a nostalgic and moody track. Not very happy with the violin part (it's off here and there) and this track would benefit from some additional work

I am at an airport waiting for my plane so I recorded this filler of a track, using a drum, simple synth and a recording of the waves on the Mediterranean Sea.


This week I was in a hurry so I gave myself a hard constraint - 45 minutes to start a track from scratch and upload it. This was a fun experiment. No time to think, embracing absolute randomness.


More a teaser, or a sketch of an idea. There could be something interesting there if I dedicated more time to it.

I was out on vacation in Hokkaido. No computer, just my phone with GarageBand (which I really cannot use yet) - doing lots of field recordings and using that. Not a great track musically, it’s more like a blurry Polaroid of a brief instant.

Tons of drums and beats, some koto and strings breaks, a high synth lead. "The best meals are prepared in old pots" is a French expression - i pulled all my old pots and cooked something quick but that kinda works. Slightly cheesy towards the end, but still fine.

I got to walk around a lot in Shibuya this week in the early mornings. This part of town is under construction. To be fair, it has been under construction for at least the past 15 years. There were sounds of soldering, of hammers, etc and that inspired the theme for this track.

I imagined the future where robots and drones build space elevators out of exotic materials, what will they think about when they take a break and watch the moon?

A half finished bossa nova jam with some breakbeat and brasses.

Here's a track somewhere between the Walking Dead and Scoobidoo. It started like a normal electronic track and, somehow, some zombie samples made their way into the track, and it turned into full fledged Halloween track, a few months early.

An experiment trying to do a trip hop track. I had to ditch a whole sax section that just sounded clunky. I love the idea of sax but struggle to do it with synth sax libraries, even good ones. Need to study that more.

The vocals were made on vocaloid.
