Re: Post YOUR music here (Merged : The Rainbow Correction)

I has a new album, in English, "The Boy Who Never Spoke". It's a bit post-rock, shoegazing, electronica, ambient, experimental etc. 不说话的男孩 Its only up for streaming on last.fm. I'm hoping for a netlabel to release it, but if not, I'm just gonna but it on Mediafire. Please critique and enjoy.

Re: Obama's radio address laid to music

The longest and most extensive one I've ever done.

Re: Obama's radio address laid to music

Finally, after skipping 2 weeks I made another installment of the series. Kinda similar to the stuff I did prior to 2007, no guitars, just synths and drum machines.

I gets really fun about 3-4 minutes into the song.
