That is very kind of you, thanks, master Minty.
Great to hear this spine tingler on here too, Turtle. Better not listen to it too often though, or I'll never get so sleep tonight . . . .

A bit of instrumental froth, that probably falls between various genres. Maybe I should have called it 'Misfit'?

A bit of downbeat electronica about deforestation. Don't try saying that quickly if you haven't got your teeth in straight. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Metapop hold various ongoing challenges, to keep things ticking over in the old grey matter. One of the threads simply asks that you compose with no drums or percussion. I started with a simple bass line, laid a rhythmic filter over it and went from there. Just a bit of fun. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Another collision between synth and strings, following my usual quirky path. This one started as vehicle for some lyrics about the environment. My appalling attempts at vocals persuaded me to save your ears and your sensibilities about bad lyrics. Here it is as an instrumental. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Guitar led midi track, enriched with a few choice vocal samples from the excellent Noizz catalogue. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Wrote this with John Juxta in mind to add some vocals, but so far he's far too busy with 1001 other collaborations and ACR - which us users are all very grateful for. Maybe in the future? Thanks for listening, if you do

Another experimental track, veering towards the trippy this time. Pretty clunky in parts and could probably do with a lot of tweaking. May come back to it at some point in the future with that in mind. All midi work this time. Thanks for listening if you do.

Another oddball track, that probably doesn't fit into any particular category. Driven by midi sounds, but also using a few vocal and percussion loops from the Noizz arsenal. Thanks for listening, if you do.

An upbeat instrumental track, created with an idea to add vocals later, if I can convince the very busy John Juxta to participate in a collaboration. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Found a little competition online at 'Yes Please' Underground music, that gave me an excuse to play with my midi vst instruments. Not that I need much excuse. It was called Day and Night and offered to generic fantasy scenes, one day and night, obviously. You had to pick one and let rip. Didn't have long, but this is my mish-mash. Thanks for listening, if you do. https://tea-man.co.uk/yes-please-day-night-competition/

OK, this one is coming from an odd angle and sounds like it. I'm dabbling around with a children's story idea and thought starting some suitable music might help develop things. The music ended up going off on a tangent and ended up here. Once upon a time a tune went out for a walk and lost its way. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Something a bit quirky. More like a soundtrack, portrait of a goblin than anything else. Midi mangled in the piano roll of my DAW as usual. Thanks for listening, if you do.

A bit of fun done for a friendly Halloween Challenge on SoundCloud, generously set up by the very talented Clubfungus. My usual blend of traditional and synth, midi sounds, cobbled together in the piano roll of my DAW. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Just love one of the retro sounding presets in s3k, one of the many freebie vst's that have been around a while. It led me to this old fashioned tune. All midi written in the piano roll of my DAW. Thanks for listening, if you do.

Another track combining synth and more traditional instrument sounds. All midi work in the piano roll of the DAW again. I was aiming for something quite light and airy, but it's not up to me to say whether I achieved that or not. Thanks for listening, if you do.

A synth led track incorporating another of my favourite sounds, which is the upright bass. Veering more towards a downbeat soundtrack than anything else. All midi work in the piano roll of my DAW. Thanks for listening , if you do.

Veering towards the experimental - at least for me anyway. More midi mangled synths competing for attention, and then topped off with a pretentious title. Thanks for listening, if you do.
