about

My first foray into MIDI-based music sequencing. Pretty bad audio quality, clipping all over the joint. Poorly mixed and arranged, but occasionally charmingly compelling instrumental tunes.

After completing Sonic Horridness in early 2004, I stumbled across a magazine called Computer Music, which was quite a revelation. I had no musical background so the whole idea of being able to make something that at least vaguely resembled real music with just software was quite exciting.

Anyway, said magazine came with a little basic DAW called ComputerMuzys, along with a bunch of free VSTs. Muzys had some limitations, like only five instrument VSTs or something like that, and a handful of effect VSTs per channel. But I experimented with it, and became especially enamoured with drum programming.

This album is the result of those first experimentations.

This is on here for historical purposes mostly. Also, at this point I'm so far removed from where I was when I did this that I can listen to it from an outside perspective and enjoy its accidentally interesting moments.
