about

FREE.
i acquired lots of cheap electronics from my teens, and then in my early twenties i got my own place and spent years making home recordings.
its how i learned how to record and edit audio. i made hundreds of songs. lots of them not good. some of them ok, listed here.

i had a 1992 Fostex digital recorder with 12 minutes and 47 seconds of space, a PC i built from scraps, radioshack equipment, yahmaha keyboards i stole from my sisters, some ratty stratocaster, a microkorg, eventually a beautiful gretsch acoustic guitar and i'd race home from minimum wage jobs in freezing wisconsin and stay up all night making songs. i lived for it.

i didn't understand what peaking was, i had a major hard drive failure and lost lots of songs and all the masters. i pulled these 128kbps mp3s off of CD-Rs I had burnt for people. without that they'd be gone forever. so there is a lot of quality loss. (see also Lost Flashdrive Collector on my page which I made around the same time). i learned everything i know about audio via fucking up.

almost all these songs were written and recorded in one night then never touched them again. its a lot of tracks and i was ashamed of them for years but i'm putting them out because i'm not this good anymore and if you want to learn audio, try making songs over and over and over again.

so, 50 home recordings i produced from 2004-2009.
