hey friends,

with some free time today i’ve rediscovered some oldies from the steiny songwriting archives and decided to post a few.

this first oneย  a song i wrote for my good friend Jaron Hilger for his birthday last year.ย  this is something i used to do more often for birthday gifts, and this one was particularly fun for me.ย  it also features “tiny steiny.”

hope it gets yer rump shak’n

“A BIRD” (click below these words on the little arrow thingy)

eh…this was one of those weeks. i’m not gonna spend much time dogging my own composition, but this one ain’ exactly the mona lisa of songwriting. ๐Ÿ™‚

words

ridiculous

music

sort of a three parter. the main electro-groove happens at the top, and again at the end as a more deviously minor version. section two is essentially a synth solo, which i did often a few years ago on sessions for “black gloves”, a collection i never released. i do love playing with synth sounds and improvizing ‘sound solos’ with ’em. it’s always suprising to see what sounds happen as you tweak nobs. section three is the accoustic guitar/drums bit. it’s so different musically, that i wanted to make the instrumentation completely different too.

i had some real trouble in mix land with this one, but if anyone else wants to take a stab at it, let me know. ๐Ÿ™‚

SPEAKING OF WHICH!!!

i will soon release two remixes of “laughter carries far” made my Neil Arsently and Steve Niketopoulos. STAY TUNED! they’re great.

thanks for listening, as always. and happy independence day. ๐Ÿ™‚
