Drizzle

A nice little piano and drums instrumental piece. It has a laid-back band feel – sort of like what you might play after closing time when everyone else but the bartender has been booted out. Course, its just me on the synth doing multi-track, and I never had time to join a band, but anyway, that doesn’t mean I can’t get into the same groove from time to time.

First recording of a song in progress from about ten years ago. Eventually it became the concept for a multi-media graphic novel about the search for identity. Never got around to developing it, though. However, now that I’m retired, I might just revisit the project…

Voice In The Wind

Here’s an ethereal piece from 1980. We had rented a synthesizer for the horror film I was directing (The Strangeness, available on Amazon) and I took advantage of the opportunity to knock out a few of my own compositions while we had it. Turns out, this was the exact same synthesizer that had been rented to Star Trek The Motion Picture – the first movie – and they had used it to make that big bass twang whenever we saw V’ger. Kind of like tickling history with your fingers. I used the bend wheel to get some stretchy surreal effects as you can hear for yourself.

An homage to the character played by Bob Denver (Gilligan) on his firs TV series in which he had the role of a quirky beatnik who was the best friend to the main character (whose name was the title of the series), Dobie Gillis. Warren Beatty also had a recurring role as the handsome college man.
