I Spilled Monster Everywhere (Oh No!)

10/5/2018

Starting this season with a fun dance song. This is the first time I'm using these 8-bit tools. How did I do? I'm also looking to hire lo-fi hip hop artists for a project I'm putting together, let me know if you're interested :)

Zombies Ate My Neighbors

9/21/2018
More
This week, I covered an old favorite pop-punk song about zombies. I'm a big fan of bare bones punk music, though I don't get to make music in that genre as much as I'd like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dk9DSx-O2mU&index=12&list=PLLraWmqzbPwfVN7K8hY5NINkZN7uscKZg

All Over With Humanity

9/21/2018
More
This one comes with a sick video from one of my favorite animes, Read Or Die. The vocal samples are from the 1938 radio broadcast of 'War of the Worlds' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03itTFjfsNA&index=11&list=PLLraWmqzbPwfVN7K8hY5NINkZN7uscKZg

On Blue Curacao

9/7/2018

The "thing" I shared this week is a clip from a podcast I co-hosted. I regularly mix / master podcasts, but this side of me isn't really seen in my portfolio, so I'm fixing that. Perhaps this clip can shed light on my personality, absurdity based sense of humor, and affinity for physics. Full Episode: https://soundcloud.com/drunkthepod/episode-11-just-the-tip

I'm working on a film score for a sci-fi film and this tune popped out. Need theme music or a soundtrack for a project? Please reach out to me :)

Sonata 5735 ft. Ruth Cruikshank

8/24/2018
More
I wanted to challenge my music composition skills, so I composed one of the most difficult yet melodic pieces I could imagine while recording with techniques used in ASMR. My former piano teacher, Ruth Cruikshank, performed this live recording of the piece.

Vincent's Funk ft. St Abel

8/17/2018
More
I imagined what a sexy funk song written by a modern Vincent van Gogh would sound like and this popped out. I met artist St. Abel online who offered to help pull the piece together with her sultry mostly-British voice. Think I should keep working with her? Like if you want and share if it's worth sharing! Thanks! XOXO St. Abel: https://st-abe.tumblr.com/ Lyrics: I want to paint you baby Across my bedroom wall come closer baby just keep shake'n it shake'n it shake it Don't need no ears when...

Harmonica

8/3/2018
More
Cute, simple, sexy, and I hope memorable. I just picked up an old harmonica and came up with this song. It's inspired by the tone set by the movie "Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart." Any song style requests? Video: https://youtu.be/ecNUS6tnRw4

All Along the Watchtower ft. Christ Complex

7/27/2018
More
Physicists travel and relocate frequently to universities and national labs. I had the privilege of meeting up with Joe McLaughlin, a fellow physicist and metal head from the band Christ Complex in the brief window he is visited Vancouver. I've tried and failed to make metal music in the past; something about it my brain can't comprehend. This is not the case for the guitar wizard, Joe. We teamed up and combined our skills to arrange, perform, record, mix, and master a deathcore cover of...

Medication

More
Ever see Swiss Army Man with Daniel Radcliffe? The movie with the farts? The film and soundtrack inspired me to challenge my fears head on and embrace what makes me weird, so this week I composed a (mostly) 7/4 A Capella piece. I know it's far from top 40, but I (hope I) was able to capture a roller coaster of emotion within this piece. It can mean whatever you want it: prepping for a surgery, battling cancer, being stoned off your ass, etc. I'm really happy with how it turned out and how...

Wake

7/13/2018
More
I'm still trying to find my sound. I like layering vocal octaves and the indie sound from songs in the game Life Is Strange. I wrote this while at a cabin off the Washington sound. There are close by islands, but all the water is from the ocean; the tides coming in and out make it resemble a river, inspiring the opening lyrics and the rest of the song. My talented gf inked out the art for this before she met me and I became memorized with it as I feel it fits the scenery and mood of this...

Dinosaur

7/4/2018
More
I was really obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid and totally bit someone once in kindergarten. What a mess... So, this song is largely a true story. Thanks for giving this song a listen, and please share if I have compelled you to do so. http://dehartmusic.co/ Lyrics: When I was young, they would ask me, When I grow up, what would I'd like to be? With stars in my eyes, I knew my answer well And to everyone I would tell, I wanna be a dinosaur. I want to be a velociraptor with twelve inch claws...

Quiet Daggers

6/29/2018
More
This marks the half way point of the Thing A Week Project! Wooh! This song is pretty meta, inspired by the sounds of Say Anything and Cage The Elephant. It expresses my current frustrations with my slow development as a public figure in music.

Tunnel Tunnel Tunnel Ft. Flip My Beatz

6/22/2018
More
This was a fun instrumental collaboration with Flip My Beatz who I met online. This song is really opening my mind to the idea of mixing genres. I might try some punk pieces with hip hop drums in the future because they can just sound so good!

Wet Streets And Traffic Lights [Live In French]

6/15/2018
More
I don't speak French, but hearing it in Montreal drove me to adapt a rock song to an acoustic ballad: Original: https://soundcloud.com/dehartmusic/wet-streets Lyrics [French]: Je pensais à toi dernièrement Je pensais que tu n'étais pas là Je pensais à la façon dont nous étions Et comme cet air d'été me manque Mais vous n'etes pas là Il pleut toujours à Vancouver Ce serait un miracle dans le sud-ouest J'ai dû apprendre à vivre sans toi Je ne peux pas oublier Je n'oublierai jamais Lyrics...

Bus Stop ft. Benjamin Bubb

6/8/2018
More
Dianne got me into Lo-Fi Hip Hop, so to mix things up a bit, I dove into the genre. This song sounds suspiciously good and I should try to make music that sounds good more often. Super duper thanks to Benjamin Bubb who came out of his hiatus to collaborate on the ambient tracks for this song!!! What are your feelings on this genre change? Have any new specific sub-genres of music you want the world to hear? Benjamin Bubb: https://open.spotify.com/artist/1PI1XJUc18xtjM2j2TPxtg

Claw

6/1/2018
More
A remake of an emotional original of mine. I'm a pitchy mess, but it's who I am. My wonderful gf drew the art for this based on an actual picture of me. I'm sort of a contortionist.

Just a brooding sad song.
