Below is most of the music I've done since 2001. They can be separated into three periods:
- 2001-2003: High school years, just noodling around.
- 2004-2007: College years, mostly assignments for school.
- 2007-present: After college, for my own enjoyment (starting from Waves).
Please feel free to download and listen at your own leisure. Do give me credit if you are going to use it for something else.
|Sirens||13:43||Ambient piece made from the ocean and my voice.|
|Matchingfreak Theme||3:16||Background music I made for my Matchingfreak video. It's the same phrase repeated over and over again, but I thought I'd put it up anyway. I might embellish it later.|
|End Of Line Passacaglia||2:37||I made this for a Daft Punk remix competition with very limited time (~2 days). As such, it didn't turn out that great, but I liked the idea of continuo added to techno. I may or may not revisit it.|
|Viola Trio||4:52||Short piece for viola, cello, and piano. Recorded by Ryan Leach (piano), Laurel Diskin (viola), Scott Burns (cello).|
|Boşluk||2:47||Short piece for two violins and piano. I tried my hand at writing in Locrian mode this time. Performers: Justin Lo (violin 1), Jennifer Hsiao (violin 2), Andrew Noll (piano).|
|Carol of the Bells||1:51||An arrangement of a favorite Christmas carol with two voices and piano in 19/8 meter (mostly).|
|2Reichx5Melike||7:14||I prepared this for a Steve Reich remix contest at Indaba Music. I didn't win anything, but it was fun to make and motivated me to work on more music!|
|See||3:00||An electronic piece I created using various sounds including recorder, piano, violin, voice, etc.|
|Canon L'Homme Armé||1:24||A simple canon I wrote based on a popular Renaissance tune called "L'Homme Armé." I am pretty new at violin, so excuse the horrid violin sounds; I spent 5 hours recording just the violin parts alone!|
|"D"||4:37||This is a piano piece I worked on on-and-off since February 2007. The recording quality is poor, so I will probably re-record once I get a new microphone.|
|2008||Synthetic Sky||4:07||I started working on this and didn't know what else to do with it, so I set it aside for a while. Eight months later, I came back to it and decided that it was finished. All the sounds are derived from my voice.|
|Diesirase||0:40||I harmonized the well-known Gregorian chant called Dies Irae, partly as a joke and partly because it got stuck in my head. (score)|
|2007||Dorijoie||1:30||My interpretation of the Christmas carol Joy to the World in Dorian mode. I've been waking up to this every day since February 2008, and it still hasn't gotten old!|
|Weep||7:36||A little something I worked on over the summer, which turned out to be my all-time favorites.|
|Waves||5:10||I worked on this on and off from January until November. Thanks to Justin Lo, who let me record him playing the violin.|
|slurry||2:15||Assignment for electronic music class.|
|sweatertangofountain||4:35||Assignment for electronic music class.|
|4||13:21||This was an assignment for my electronic music class. All the sounds were created from scratch using Max patches (noise filtration and FM synthesis).|
|2006||2.2||5:22||This was an assignment for my electronic music class. I used different sorts of feedback noises I created with a speaker and microphone, and edited it using delays and reverbs.|
|Dara||1:16||This is an improvisation I did in about 30-45 minutes.|
|Flute/String Quartet||2:12||I wrote this quartet for a class. It's supposed to be a "slow movement" that has an ABA' form; we only did the AB part, so imagine that it returns to the main theme afterwards. (flute: Lori Huberman, violin: Justin Lo, viola: Katie Matlack. Sadly, I don't remember the cellist's name.)|
|Sonatina||3:06||A piano piece written for class. This is a recording of my computer playing it, so it's not very musical. It attempts to do dynamics, but it doesn't understand the concept of a crescendo or diminuendo, resulting in abrupt dynamic changes.|
|2003||Tesadüf||2:57||An embarrasing pop song, but left on here for completeness' sake. Click for more info.|
|2002||creepy.mid||0:54||It's so creepy sounding, I love it!|
|syncopati.mid||2:06||This is probably one of the most coherent things I've ever written. It's one of my favorites.|
|2001||messedupstuff.mid||0:42||Short sketch from an evening of playing around.|
|boocrap.mid||0:58||This is one of my first compositions, and it's still one of my favorites.|
