Share, Numazu at the Start

For Sato Mori. If this reaches you, know that I think the same way. This song uses a sample by the BBC Philharmonia Orchestra. That sample was released under the Creative Commons BY license. The Orchestral Movement of 1932 will be going quiet for a while. This isn't the last release ever; just for now. As a parting gift, you can find 2 new songs as well as 3 teasers to this album at archive.org/details/tonebegin. To my very few, very precious listeners, I adore you all more than I can express and I'm honored by your time and attention. Thank you all, I hope to resume soon.

[ tags: ] [ genres: breakbeat jazz ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Synths, drums, and a whole bunch of reverb. The full name of this song is "Let My Name Be Written In The Book Of Love." But that was too long.

Back to electronic music. A theremin sample, strings, drums, and bass come together to make a song you can drive down the highway to.

[ tags: ] [ genres: electronic *none* ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Home

Guitars, harps, and simulated banjos join synths for a rolling frollick in the poppy fields. More folksy stuff but not really. This song features samples from the OLPC Sound Sample Archive.

Another outtake from the Crossing The Oceans sessions. A little more percussion than usual but still, I like it!

[ tags: ] [ genres: electronic folk ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

At Summer Pond

An outtake from the Crossing The Oceans sessions. A little more mellow than what we previously offered with acoustic guitars, percussion, and a (gasp!) folksy sound. Good!

Stinger (First Version)

The first version of Stinger. An older song but still one of my favorites. Mirrors the Reprise version but this one has a little more feeling to it. Enjoy.

[ tags: ] [ genres: *none* *none* ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Stinger (Reprise)

Another older one. One of my favorites. Very simple ambient/soft-breakbeat piece put together from two different tracks. The second of two. I hope you enjoy!

[ tags: ] [ genres: *none* *none* ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Momentum

A short, older piece that I never got around to properly finishing. I still like it, though. Lots of electronic texture and a few beats.

[ tags: ] [ genres: *none* *none* ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Tracy (Original Mix)

A song I thought would go well with driving down an empty road at midnight. A nice lead with an easy drum beat. A little too much bass but, hey, I like it. An older song. I don't know why I didn't put this out.

[ tags: ] [ genres: electronic minimal ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Gunnery

Something completely different from us. Slow and dramatic with a hint of atmosphere. Stylish, yes! But I like it, too! This song features bass samples from the Music Sample Library Project under special license allowing for commercial use and additional sampling.

Kalua (curr's acoustic remix)

When it's moonlight in Kalua. Synths, horns, and some drums. Piano, too! Makes me think of walking down the beach just before it's about to rain. A cover of a song by Jerome Kern. It (the original song) was published in 1921 and hence in the public domain.

Trains

An attempt at an electronic/indie-rock song. Beats, some fake guitars, horns, and reverb. Close your eyes and travel down the city's A-line.

[ tags: electronic pop rock ] [ genres: electronic pop ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Running

Some kind of electro-acoustic. Makes me think of running down a street at dawn. Features a sample of Croydon, UK - Church Street Croydon, Saturday Night by Dave Pape. Which was released to the public under the Creative Commons BY license

[ tags: electronic glitchy rhythmic ] [ genres: electronic pop ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

[ tags: piano drums break ] [ genres: breakbeat minimal ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

James

Another song written with a famous person in mind. Some strings, some drums, some guitar sounds. Yay!

[ tags: electronic synth orchestral ] [ genres: electronic orchestral ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Stars (Original Mix)

The original mix of Stars. This version is much faster and (maybe) a little better than the remix. I imagine running to meet someone while listening to this song.

[ tags: electronic synth pop break ] [ genres: electronic breakbeat ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

Victor

Song written for a famous person. Short piece. Repetition and character. Very good in my opinion!

[ tags: electronic pop ] [ genres: electronic pop ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

When We Were Still Very Young

Pads and reverb. And a few beats. And I think there are some leads in there, too! If you're on ccmixter, you might notice this song. It is presented here with slight differences.

[ tags: strings synthetic electropop ] [ genres: electronic pop ] [ info: mp3 ccbysa2.5 ]

All We Have Is Time

A short simple piece featuring simple strings and a simple bass line and a simple pattern. Nice!

Began sometime in 2000. Influenced by lots of musicians. The music is filled with catchy lines and fun beats. Upbeat for the most part. Lots of atmosphere. Never overwhelming. Enjoy. And if you like anything you hear, drop me a line. And if you like anything you hear, please feel free to share.
