Music I Make
I play guitar and sing. I mostly play modern folk music, but I own an electric guitar and sometimes play some rock or alternative or heavy metal for kicks. Here are some recordings I have made. The ones that sound low quality I recorded using a cheap sound card, two high-quality Shure microphones and some Linux software I wrote to record and mix the sound. The newer and better sounding ones are recorded using a 24bit/96Khz (better than CD quality) sound card made by M-Audio called the Delta 44.
|Drum Solo||Arthur Peters||I learned something doing my last song phasers are good with drums. So I just doodled with drums. A number of the drum samples are actually vocal samples I made.|
|Reason Opus #2||Arthur Peters||A little more "hardcore" than the last one. More techno'y. Very repetitive, but quite cool if I may say so my self.|
|Dying For You||Arthur Peters||My first full-length song using Reason. Most of the insturments are from refills, but the voice sample is mine. Please send me your opinion.|
|Buzz Opus #1||Arthur Peters||Fun little peice. Created entirely in Buzz using no samples. I barrowed several of the intruments from sample songs, but I also created a couple from scratch.|
|Buzz Opus #2||Arthur Peters||Also created entirely in Buzz using no samples. I built almost all of the intruments my self. It's not quite done, so you'll see an update if you check back in a while.|
|Tomorrow and a Day||Arthur Peters (lyrics and all)||I wrote this song for a girl during the summer of 2000 in a theatre program. The recording is one take using two mics. Modern Folk.|
|Friend of my Heart||Arthur Peters (all of it)||Another song I wrote. It is about another theatre friend of mine. Folk.|
|Quarter Moon||Cheryl Wheeler||Me on guitar and voice (recorded seperatly). Folk.|
|Um-Diya||Arthur Peters||Two distorted guitar track and a voice track plus some really heavy reverb.|
|CO||I, Arthur Peters||Two electric guitar tracks both played by me.|
|Synth Song||Arthur Peters||This song was made entirely using CSound on my computer.|
|Hit It!||Arthur Peters||This piece was a MOD file sequenced on SoundTracker and then rendered using MikMod.|
Music I Listen To
I have been into folk music for many years, and I have a intense dislike for most pop and hard rock and 99% of metal (I don't distinguish between types). The one exception to this is that I really like techno. My play list varies from Paul Simon to Pat Kirtly (an absolutely amazing finger-pick guitarist) to Ani Difranco to Tom Waits to various Gatecrasher albums to U2 to Dar Williams to The Eels.
