New Album: Our Dreams are Made of Rain

Hey everyone,

So…I’ve been using my Facebook Music Page so much, that I sort of forgot I had a website. For more up to date news, follow me here or here:

But while you’re here, I did just release a brand new album that I’m actually excited about, maybe for the first time ever. It started as a project composing for a film, and then turned into a very personal session of songwriting. So I’m very pleased to share with you, Our Dreams are Made of Rain.

(Cityscape is actually a free track within the album…to say thanks to all you guys.)

Thanks, guys.

Splendid.
Karl.

New EP…and it’s Free!

Hey everyone, new EP was just released. It’s got a couple songs from two compilations I wrote for in the past couple months, and some new ones. It’s totally free…just enter ‘zero’ into the little table on Bandcamp after you click ‘Buy.’ It’s free because I love you…but also, to hopefully spread the word a bit. So if you want to click the little ‘Like’ button under the album cover on Bandcamp, or ‘Like’ my Facebook Music page, well then there may just be more free love music in the future.

Live-looped lead track:

Re-recorded and re-mixed closing track. I was never happy with the version I sent to the Hope for Japan compilation, so I re-did it a little, and I think this one is better:

Thanks, everyone!

Splendid.

New Song, New Story, New Artform & a Thank You

New project available for free download! This is a thank you to everyone who has been so supportive over the last couple months as I’ve start off on this music venture. The project is something a little bit new, and as such, I’m not sure whether it will catch on. But it’s both a short story e-book, as well as an mp3 soundtrack written specifically for the story. The idea would be that you read and listen to both at the same time, with a good pair of headphones, and get taken to some other place. Neither the story nor the song were meant to stand alone; they were written together as one piece.

So we’ll see where this goes, or doesn’t go. But in the meantime, it’s free! So check out these promo videos for it, and then download it below if you like, as a thank you for the support for the music and the recent album.

The first promo here is the full song, with pieces of the short story appearing from time to time. The second is mostly me improvising some melodic ideas that became the structure for the soundtrack; that one’s for you guitar folk out there.
