a slow track featuring Ruth, Stephe and Blue on voices.

one60four

a soundtrack to accompany nine minutes and eight seconds of your life. Probably best with headphones to hear the low sounds and little elements that appear and disappear like jetsam & flotsam in an ever moving and tumbling body of water.

a jazz funk jam driven by Boa Dubless on bass with Ruth on trumpet, Bam on keys, Art on guitar, Ed on drums and Patrick randomly hitting things. Long time a coming.

restless

restless

essentially a deep house disco hybrid with a hynotic (some may say repetitive) beat and featuring a random assortment of the noises I seem to favour. Once in a while it’s ok to listen to loud music. This track will work best best loud and through headphones.

10 past funk o’clock

10 past funk o’clock

a mish-mash of funk and disco with some jazz and other nonsense thrown in for good measure. Featuring solid bass and drums with Hammond, guitars, horns and the odd strings.

the relentless march of nothingness

the relentless march of nothingness

a relentless onslaught of the usual nonsensical noises, marching one after the other in a seemingly never ending aural assault with a reggae style half-time beat. Why?

didn’t anybody tell you?

didn’t anybody tell you?

a rather retro mix of funk, disco, Turkish makams and the usual nonsense featuring some stirling bass work by Boa Dubless and strong beats by Ed Thrums in this dare I say it, prog funk disco track.

a slow 2-step track with dubstep, orchestral and industrial elements make for a strange and heavy piece full of glitches and ethereal noises.

a laid back hybrid tune with a reggae feel under Mexican-like horn lines and other surreal moments.

a cheesy jazz-funk tune à la JTQ to get things started. The first offering from audioscapist.

… another jazz-funk tune with a rocky ending for good measure, with guitars, hammonds, horn lines, moog melodies and some funky bass and drums.

sulla strada per Barga

sulla strada per Barga

… another road trip for the Bam, Boa, Ed and Art. This one long and torturous and they haven’t even got there yet. Anyroad, they will eventually. This tune was written for a good friend who lives in Barga, Italy who plays in a soul band. Therein lies a problem, because this track is a jazz-funk hybrid with some scarily muzak-like nonsense thrown in. Featuring Hammond, bass, drums and guitar.

pour mon Papa

pour mon Papa

a piece of piano music I wrote for my father to play and given to him on his 80th birthday. A very enjoyable process which involved some heavy editing … so I can’t play it all the way through and the recording here is how I imagine it could be played. Click here for a rough score. (A new recording on a new piano with some little changes uploaded 9/03/14).

Bam, Boa, Ed, Ruth and la Faune muck about with a jazz tune and I’m using the last two terms pretty loosely.
