Two new pieces and one new video

The nice thing about vacation is I can finally finish up some music projects -- so here's what shipped.

"Birdsong" is a wistful, downtempo track inspired one spring day while sitting outside. I heard these notes as a call and response between two birds. The bass was inspired by another bird call. Mostly VST, but there are also some circuit bent Casio SK-1 sounds lurking in the background.

The best way to describe "Kalimba" is 3 vs 4 -- in both meter and instrumentation.

Vujade is a longer piece -- features guitars (e-bow), percussion and loads of atmosphere. Perfect for your next overcranked/slo-mo action sequence set in a foreign land. ;)
