Diamonds aren't the only thing forged under pressure - some things are darker. What Carbonado lacks in purity it makes up for with sheer toughness. Naturally black, it doesn't reflect light - it absorbs it. Witness this distortion of carbon, formed from intense pressure under mysterious circumstances. Featuring electric guitars, bass, and drumkit.

It is a dark time for the Funk. Although the Square Beat has been destroyed, Square troops have driven the Funky forces from their hidden base and pursued them across many tonalities. Evading the dreaded Square Dancers, a group of syncopated musicians led by a funky tenor sax has established a new secret riff in the remote key of Bb minor. The antiquated Lord Harpsichord, obsessed with finding the tenor, has dispatched thousands of remote metronomes into the far reaches of rhythmic space....

It's tough enough having a good memory as a human, but at least we come with built-in heuristics to make things up as needed. For our burgeoning robotic brethren, memory is more deterministic - and this is both a boon and a bane. In this track, synthesized instruments ranging from drums and guitar to keyboard and strings provide a blues backing while a confusedly expressive formant-shaped lead explores what it is to forget.

Paul Desmond likely intended his seminal cool jazz work, "Take Five", to refer to taking a brief respite from labor. However, an alternative interpretation is that of taking multiple attempts to record a desired artistic feat. In that spirit, this work imagines a take that occurred slightly later in the session - two takes later, perhaps. Featuring a jazz quartet of piano, upright bass, drums, and clarinet.

Trees, like you and me, can be shy - growing in a way that allows for gaps in their canopy. Lest we falsely anthropomorphize, note that hypotheses are that this is an adaptive behavior, born of practical reasons such as reducing wind damage or the spread of leaf-eating insects. But perhaps our shyness is practical too, and while it is more emotive than arboreal, it is nonetheless a kinship we can share.

Invincibility is contextual - aspects that impress natives may feel differently to travelers. Does conventional strength override these other concerns? Perhaps in some narratives, but surely, as with entropy, nuance propagates and wins in the end. Featuring acoustic guitar, Hofner bass, drum kit, flugelhorn, and vocaloid - perfect in its pitch, if not its humanity.
Topics: acoustic guitar, flugelhorn, vocaloid, vocal, lyrics, hofner bass

Topics: acoustic, humor

Topics: orchestral, synthesized, fusion, piano, trumpet, strings, percussion, metal, dramatic
