Von Brunswick! The Evil King and his Armies Approach

Von Brunswick! The Evil King and his Armies Approach

This crazy drum beat continuation forms into a menacing grinchlike tone followed by swoping banjos and eerie stillness. The Evil King tracks VB down and attackes the circus in the forest. The results of this battle will be narrated in the next song. Two more songs and Von Brunswick! In Pursuit of Grandeur will be done.

Von Brunswick! Full and Bright

Von Brunswick! Full and Bright

Here is a short, lubby dubby, messilly-recorded, harmonized, ukulelefied, pretty and simple Von Brunswick song.  He is with Gisella at the circus here… but towards the end an ominous drum beat creeps in… Uh OH!  To Be Continued…

Ukulele, Vox braduli

Von Brunswick! The Circus (or Cirkus) in the Forest

Von Brunswick! The Circus (or Cirkus) in the Forest

This song has been partially recorded since like September. But I’ve only finished it up today. Von Brunswick at this point is wandering through the woods when he hears the increasing noises of what sounds like a circus. Once there he meets the circus people and finds the girl (Gisella) among them. It is over 8 minutes long. I’m gonna make it count for today and Sunday… it has three distinct sections. Yer lucky I don’t just make it count for today sunday and next thursday. Guitar, Shaker, Glockenspiel, Accordion, Drums, Banjo, Mandolin, Harmonica. I named the encoded Genre “Cirkus (with a k in the middle)-Folk.

selected lyrics:

and he found it while stumbling all through the brush
in a valley by a river all green and lush
it was stunning how the people were just like us in the forest

Karma For Today

Karma For Today

I just got a loop pedal yesterday… This is the recorded version of a pretty lo-fi loop pedal session. It’s gonna take a lot of work to get good at this. I’m gonna use a mechanical metronone to sharpen up the timing. A little blinking light isnot enough. I think the sunday thursday will become a collection of loop pedal sessions once I’ve done it for a year. Which is coming up in February

inside the heart of the cyborg during a time of uncontrolled synthetic jubilation

inside the heart of the cyborg during a time of uncontrolled synthetic jubilation

This is what the inside of a cyborg heart… programmed by The sirius Cybernetics Corp would sound like. During a time of growing and uncontolled jubilation that is. After a while it can’t take it. System failure occurs sometime aroundabout the explosion. I recorded this in about an hour today… with a Mandolin (a recent gift) and a Jews harp (another recent gift) as well as the glockenspeil, drums, G harmonica, C harmonica and shaker. I think I have the life and times of these cyborgs down pat. Time to move on to Eskimos or Leprechauns or some such stuff.

Doorstep

Doorstep

About peaceful ambiguity and finding answers to unknowable questions… almost done with my papers… ukulele, glockenspiel, drums, harmonica

First Snow

First Snow

This song is pretty fitting for today… Traaffic, snow… wind… but a bit of gentleness, loads of feeling… I know.. that’s sappy. I’ve been a busy busy dude with papers and such. One about an argument with some folks on talk.origins… I’m Dane Hutchinson and info@ccicenter… Luckily I was able to write and record this song in only an hour and a half. In it I used… (in order of appearance) ukulele, drums, glockenspiel, harmonica, guitar, Accordion… it is the type of song that is entirely cappable of being preformed live alone with a loop pedal. I plan on playing some shows next year once things cool down. OK gotta go start the next paper.

The Pennsylvania Song

The Pennsylvania Song

I figure that this song might be my most popular yet so I should put it up. I wrote it about 4 years ago… wow… time flies. It’s of the comedy type. I’ve changed things since then.

Things are too busy right now to record and post this week so your getting one from the archives… this still fulfilles the mission statement of “aproliferation of original basement tapes…” Enjoy
