Lunch Audio #13

Jan Hammer eat your heart out.  No…really.  EAT YOUR HEART OUT. Now I’m sure that there is probably an entire subgenre of music out there that’s centered around Miami Vice.  And I’m not talking about the Smuggler’s Blues version of  things. If not, I think it should be called Vicewave and I’d like to offer the following as an entry into the pantheon.

Lunch Audio #12

While this track would probably live very comfortably within the soundtrack of one of the Bourne Movies, it’s definitely got a little Vice going in it as well. I’ll suggest that this is the music that’d be playing during one of the boat chases.

Also, my dad would have been 70 today.  This one’s for you even though I don’t think you would have cared for it.

Lunch Audio #11

This is the first in a (probably) short run of tracks that sound like they could live in the Miami Vice universe.  I kind of picture this as incidental music to a party where everyone’s on downers which is completely antithetical to the cocaine fueled parties that were portrayed in the show.  Perhaps a room filled with Rastafarians and big spliffs would work.

Lunch Audio #10

This weekend I went through a crisis of time. There’s never enough.  A friend helped me work through the things that are truly important by posing the question “Well, what if it DOES fall down?”  Though the answer to that question remains unanswered, the question itself is clarity.

It’s pointless to get all mystical when you have no idea what I’m talking about, so I give you this track which feels reggae-ish to me. Those guys know what I’m talking about.

Lunch Audio #9 (Tax Day)

For anyone paying attention, number eight does not exist.  Well..it did but it was so bad I’ve opted not to share it. Occasional failures are inevitable.

NUMBER NINE. NUMBER NINE. NUMBER NINE.  I’m quite happy with this amalgam of early nineties jazz bassline hip hop crushed up with farty synth noises…Now I have to find someone to rap on this.   I already have someone that can sing badly.  Happy IRS day.

Lunch Audio #7

Wow. Week 7 already. This track needs something else.  I suspect a guitar or banjo line will do the trick, but then again it might not make the final cut.  Time will tell, but I suspect this may be a grower for me.  No matter, this is the window into the creative process and for good or ill, it is what it is.

Lunch Audio #6 (Bonus Edition)

April Fools! Um. Well, no.  Since I’m way ahead (this post was scheduled pre-Ides), I have a bonus track along with today’s track.  OK, that’s where the incredibly weak April Fools joke lies.  It’s the same track at different speeds.  I recorded it at one speed (I’ll leave it to you to guess which) and then played with the tempo.  I kind of imagine it as alternate music to one of my favorite C64 video games, Jumpman.  You could play that game at different speeds as well….

Lunch Audio #5

This is a minute and a half of  me trying to piece together a Fatboy Slim style 70′s cop show soundtrack.  Truth is that it was extremely easy.  The disclaimers follow.

Disclaimer #1 – I did this in 20 minutes (before work…so it’s technically coffee hour audio).

Disclaimer #2 – Everything in this track is an apple loop that came with Garageband. In headier days, I would have considered this cheating and to some degree I still do.  My ideal use of loops would be of one I played/modified/collected.  Canned loops are too easy and ultimately less satisfying.

As I climb down from my slippery soapbox, it should be noted that I think I succeeded in my aim of aping Norman Cook over the course of those 20 minutes.
