Progressive Bliss was finished in 1993 but remixed with modern tools recently.  I originally used an Atari computer, a Kawai K1II, and an Ensonic Mirrage to create accompaniment for several instrumental solos recorded on a Tascam 388 1/4 inch reel to reel.  I played keyboard and directed guitarists:  Tony  Harlin (metalic),  Te Cool (psychedelic), and Lance Hogan (classical, jazz fusion)

Maiden Voyage / So What - Space Shuttle Discovery
I arranged this combination of two modal jazz classics: Maiden Voyage by Herbie Hancock, and So What by Miles Davis, re-harmonized with V+#11 chords, whole tone scales and tritone lines. So What is in half time for the middle section, the melody played by the horns. Both tunes combine when Maiden Voyage returns with the So What melody in the bass using a tritone pitch change effect. The fabulous sax solo is played by Seth Kuhn.
 
 
Reflexions is a duet with me on piano and Tim Ussery playing guitar.  It was remixed from a long free form improvisation with a real-time electronic canon at the 5th with pitch shifting and delay.  Also on the same album is Trion which used the same canon effect, but at a diminished 5th, and Dominus which goes back to the perfect 5th pitch cannon for a recap and conclusion.

With In/Outer Limits was composed using a strict tritone canon for the bass  and guitar.  The live solo canonic effect used DSP to transpose and delay played pitches.  The guitar also used an e-bow and slide for sustain with vibrato and glissandi.  All the parts seem to disintegrate into chaos at the end of each section at the limit of organization incorporating some improvisation by the performers:  William Metz-el. bass, Tyson Farmer-guitar, Charissa Brown-flute, John Peters-synthesizer.

John Lennon Crosses the River Styx used an Emulator III to trigger samples of a friend playing Bach's Cello Suite No 1 on a distorted electric guitar, but with a tritone cannon effect using pitch change and delay.  I re-arranged the order of the guitar recording and added timpani and a flange strings pad from a Yamaha TG-55.  Later I arranged an elecro-acoustic version for string quartet and percussion.

Justajob began by recording myself tweaking a vocoder plugin in soundforge; toggling carier pitches with the mouse on a virtual  keyboard to effect a looping Elvis sample from Flaming Star "this is just a job to keep me going 'til the rodeo season starts", I then acidized the entire recording and added it to Fruityloops drum patterns to which I played the bass and vibraphone on the S80 with the harmony of the vocoded Elvis loop.
