Devonian Dervish

After the Cambrian explosion, but before the age of dinosaurs, was a time of fish and tetrapods, rocking out with their newly articulated skeletal structures. Whirl along with them to this rock track featuring guitars and drums.

Robo Basie

First, counting - then, thinking - and finally, playing. Robots are slowly but surely mastering the skills that make us human, but rather than mourn, this track celebrates that progression. Featuring a synthetic big band (trumpets, piano, guitar, bass, drums) and virtual clarinet solo.

Blues for Harp Quartet

You’ve heard blues from jaw harps and french harps - why not symphonic harps? This track features a quartet of these ponderous instruments riffing, trading solos, and even occasionally playing out of tune.

A New Funk

Bandcamp Loudr Vimeo Gumroad Amazon Music iTunes Google Play Spotify
It is a period of syncopated beats. Funky music, striking from the fingers of untold musicians, has won a great victory for music listeners everywhere. During the track, a trumpet will play a solo accompanied by keys, bass, and drums. Pursued by the downbeat, the trumpet is custodian of the funk that, well, it probably won’t save the galaxy but hopefully you enjoy it anyway.

This track is followed by The Funk Strikes Back and Return of the Funk.

Rimsky-Korsakov only told half the tale on bumblebees - sure, they’re fast, but they’re also scary. This track considers the more cunning characteristics of bees, featuring a variety of “buzzy” synthesized sounds, rocking drums, and some scary strings.

Anything too stupid to be said is sung

This track is a musical explication of a fairly simple exhortation - whether or not Voltaire would approve is uncertain, but it seems quite likely that Pangloss would. Featuring a synthesized vocal quartet (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) and a baroque orchestra (harpsichord, strings, and a touch of ye olde brass/winds).

As this is a “vocal” track, you can read the lyrics if you’d like:
