I’m your basic geek, who also happens to be a musician. I own and operate Audio Intuition (although I don’t do much with it these days), and I’m a Release Engineer at Google. I’m also a Debian Developer.

Music

Moments of Weakness

[ Play/Download ]

A song written for a girl (big surprise, I’m sure).

This one came to me surprisingly quickly: I had started writing some of the words on New Years, then a couple of days later, I started playing a chord progression I had never heard and adapted the words I had written to fit. I recorded most of the song that night, and spent the next few days polishing.

It’s pretty simple, mainly piano and vocals in 5-meter, with a Rhodes Mark I and some strings making an appearance in the middle. Enjoy!

Emotion Unleashed

[ Play/Download ]

Originally written for a friend’s independent film (which, unfortunately, didn’t wind up coming to fruition), this is a blatant abuse of the Orkester strings in Reason. It builds up to a very exciting climax and then leaves you hanging, wanting more…

Too Deep for Me

[ Play/Download ]

I’m actually a little embarrassed to put this up here. It was recorded years ago, before I actually had any decent equipment, so the sound quality is pretty poor. But, people who hear it tell me it’s a great song, and I haven’t gotten around to re-recording it. So, it’s here by popular demand (you may thank Joey…).

I wrote this song for the friends I’ve left behind with all the times I have moved throughout my life (mostly since my father was in the Coast Guard). The lyrics are available, if you want them.
