Holiday 04:54
A glimpse of sky beneath the shade The engine roar begins to fade Where's the room for further care? What does waiting bring? Holiday forgives these questions With other plans delayed Intention overplayed The best that better hopes can bring Within this other world The circumspect unfurled Impressions fade and lose their sting The weather changes on the street. The still-familiar incomplete Turn new corners; that seems fair Insincere at best; Holiday secures permission All past and hidden whims unwinding A study of intention All past and hidden fears unwinding The study of consent Fall past the hidden sins unwinding A study of retention All past and sudden whims deciding The courage to relent Sure finds of innocence reminding The courage of convention Fall past the hidden fears, enlightened Corroded by percent

Fauna 02:46
On up the morning Shadowing the field The accidental Perfectly revealed In sensation As the moment holds Now comes ever Briefer to behold Absent future Telling of the norm What skills inhibit So they will inform On up the moment Bustle of the air All sensation Briefer to compare

This Climate 04:33
This climate sheds a quiet tale Routine undesigned The greetings pass as we defend unaligned The air seems present in a chill We decide to wrap ourselves instead Eyes averted This climate slowly brings us a point of view In turn like knowing Seamless This climate surely changes What we pursue This climate changes stories The smaller currents still disturb Patient in the passing and preserved Memory fills the time How do you count what’s unreturned? Missing from the faces that recur Memory of our prime Slowly in the fall Patient in the seizing Stories to recall Seldom to an end This climate changes slowly What we pursue This climate changes surely This climate changes slowly Our point of view This climate changes stories This climate changes surely Our point of view This climate changes slowly

about

A collection of songs and instrumentals.

All source sounds (aside from any vocals) come from a Yamaha JR2 acoustic guitar. It's a 3/4-sized instrument.

I've been recording a number of riffs and improvisations, and assorted chord sequences. I then take these, slice them up, and arrange the pieces into songs .

Small guitar pieces.

While I've limited myself to the guitar as source I do go on and manipulate these samples in Renoise (my preferred DAW). I don't have any hard-and-fast restrictions other than to try not to simply make it sound like a basic amped-up electric guitar. Ring modulation gets heavy use.

The goal is to eventually have a set of 10 or so final tracks, a mix of songs and instrumentals.
