Here are my visuals, full albums of Ghost Monkey music, other audio output and a lot of opinionated rants. Try the Categories if you\'re lost.
I write horrible things for you. Enjoy.
So, as an anti-christmas present I bought myself a bow and some mallets. Started bowing stuff, cymbals, glass objects, zithers, mbira… it was good fun. I decided it’d be nice and stress-free to do a little soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist.
Anyhow, I was at GDC this year and, thanks to a brilliant [...]
I get bored easily. There might be a medical term for that. Nevertheless, I did a few short melodies while being bored and might do a few more. The resultant thing:
The sad bit is, I really enjoy doing these vignettes instead of “real” songs. Let’s see if the set expands.
Also, besides the Ghost Monkey facebook [...]
Future Cities was getting unwieldy and I was having a real hard time balancing the two types of songs (okay, tracks) on it. Almost as if it was two separate albums!
So we have…
Future Cities Previews by Ghost Monkey
and her even more quiet and introverted sister
Future Ruins Previews by [...]
Lake Elorza Morning Cycle by Ghost Monkey
The Progression of Price by Ghost Monkey
Vessel buried in an oil deposit by Ghost Monkey
New Black Rainbow Gradient by Ghost Monkey
Vivero Leaving by Ghost Monkey
All of them for Future [...]
Most of what I do in my spare time is pointless.
I get no money off it, definitely no fame.
I aim at neither, and actually shy away from those two
as if they might somehow taint my art.
Most of the time I don’t do my music for you, I do it to keep sane.
there must be better [...]
Future Cities Previews by Ghost Monkey
Yeah. I’m about to do a record about, well, everything, but the theme here is the somewhat naive cleanliness and technological optimism about future that vintage science magazines and sci-fi often embodies, how it clashes with modern cities and it’s irrelevance to actual human life. About [...]
Ok. Here’s a bunch of tracks off my Soundcloud. Most of these are not on the albums found here, they’ll get their turn. Maybe.
The Quiet Ghost Monkey by Ghost Monkey
The Slow Stuff!
The Restless Ghost Monkey by Ghost Monkey
Fast Stuff! (Also compressed to hell, for the digital and temp stuff I decided to win the loudness war.)
The Slow Ghost Monkey by Ghost Monkey
Zen Bound 2 Universal is out now for all the iDevices, get it while it’s stinking hot! To commemorate this momentous release, we also released my soundtracks for both the ZB games.
So: to download Bound & Rebound, go to the Zen Bound website and enter your email on our non-spammy spam list. You get [...]
Your basic iPhone apps only need two icon sizes, a nice change from all the handsets around.
For our uses I’ve found it’s best to do the 512 icon first, while constantly keeping a small, roughly 57 sized zoomed version of the same document on the side to see that there’s enough interesting stuff happening on [...]
Secret Exitの話題作「Zen Bound」の続編が近日公開、iPadにも対応
As told by ipodtouchlab. I’m certain. Yay! :)
Also, still loving this Minusbaby track to bits: .. .. .. And, I must admit, DO LIKE!
t.. / polyfonken / etc.
Every morning my eyes hurt a bit more. Of course coffee, the universal remedy, will stabilize me some but it’s getting slightly annoying anyhow. I can usually go with very little sleep or rest, now I kind of miss free time and my six hours of sleep. Next month, I suppose.
We’re finishing Zen Bound 2 [...]
♠ Ok, I’m not stupid, it’s kinda music but what IS this Ghost Monkey anyhow?
Ghost Monkey is me, sometimes with friends. It’s not exactly outside genres but I do like to try out sounds I don’t get to hear elsewhere. You get a mixed bag of slow stuff and rough stuff. Serves you right.
Our office has a fax machine. We’re at 358-9-3866038, how about yours?
With the internet and all, faxes should be in the bin now, all of them, but since a faxed contract is a different thing from an electronic, unprinted one (how exactly?), faxes are still needed in some offices.
Since faxing doesn’t cost much at all [...]
ok, boring audio talk with a bunch of odd sci-fi names coming up.
as far as synths and drum machines are concerned, here’s my current kit list:
akai mpc 1000
and i think i’m ready to let even some of those go. the later ones on the list, that is :D
And now, a truly random selection of links. As in “blog”.
This is still my favourite Little Boots track, ironically, since it’s a bedroom live Hot Chip cover. Not over-produced, at any rate!
The Carousel was the moment I realized that I had to see Mad Men, all of it. Plus, maybe the best soundtrack moment [...]
Pitafel by polyfonken
I really like Logic 9, made some takeaway. Might be a bit harsh on old ears, I’ve done my worst to make fast food joint music. Still to come some day: Iskender Donor, Kbab Donor and Meatigan Menu.
EDIT: MONDAY ADDITION : LOGIC DISTORTIONS AND AMP DESIGNER
I also spent some [...]
