Video for Son of Strelka, Son of God Chapter 5 - The Fall

Here's the video of Chapter 5, entitled "The Fall". The art was done by Matthew Rainwater, scratching and sound effects by EBA. Other music and story by me, assembled via hacked-up bits of Obama's autobiography. As always you can download the full album at for free. Enjoy!

Son of Strelka, Son of God Chapter 7 Instrumental

Here's an instrumental track of the Buddha chapter of Son of Strelka, Son of God. I also have some really cool news - there's a draft of the video for chapter 5 almost done! It's a series of pictures by artist Matthew Rainwater, and they're pretty damn cool if I do say so.

Rough Sketch - The Tank

The next sample-mangling project I'm working on is going to be based on astronaut memoirs, or at least that's the plan. What I'm presenting here is not part of that - it's just a fun little thing that's actually completely intact from the source material. I will chop it up and use it in the final product, but that process is only just beginning. It comes from a book called Almost Astronauts, which basically chronicles how badly female pilots got shafted by NASA in the early days. It's a great book, but it's also somewhat infuriating to hear how such amazing, completely qualified women were completely shut out of the early days of space exploration.

Anyway, this passage describes the isolation tank tests. For some odd reason it's written in the second person, which is actually pretty great for my purposes. I haven't really mangled the source material at all, I just threw it over a spacey organ track I had sitting around because I wanted to see how it sounded.

Rough Take - Oh, You Captain Of Industry!

Here's a rough take of a song I just finished writing. There are still some rough edges lyrically and it's a rough draft musically, but I think all the bits are more or less there. It wasn't really intended to be a political song, but I guess it kinda comes off that way. Ah well.
