art day 58 – Rainy Day Sun

Pretty soon i’m going to have an album worth of techno-pop. Maybe i’ll call it, “Sugar-Pop In C.”

This one’s pretty cute. It has a sort of toy piano sound for the melody and really sticky bass.

Hope you like Rainy Day Sun.

To underline the song’s theme, i climbed out on my roof again and took a picture of a wet leaf.

art day 54 – i am herb alpert

I’m still trying to figure out this whole arranging horns thing. I have a vision of doing this sort of sloppy garage punk pop indie stuff … but with horns!

Anyway, this track came out ok. The guitar is a little over processed, and you have to wait till 1:30 to even get to the horn parts, but all in all a pretty inoffensive track.

For your listening pleasure : i am herb alpert

art day 52 – Cold North Wind

Another light and harmless trance track. Kinda a long one though.

This probably could use another pass, at least in the mixdown, but it mostly came together pretty well. Since it’s a trance track, it builds really slow. As always, it could probably use more melody. Ah well.

For your listening (and hopefully dancing) pleasure : Cold North Wind.

art day 49 – Dream Kittens Riding Dream Unicorns

I’m starting to think that if i ever do record vocals for these overly happy little techno things, i’ll have to find children to do them … or pixies … or pixie children.

More sugar-pop madness from my sleep-deprived mind: Dream Kittens Riding Dream Unicorns

What do you think? Too much sugar? Not enough?
