This one is called Sector 8. It is either a droning hypnotizer or a backdrop for some live jamming. I've attempted to arrange it so that it somewhat stands alone as a song. Hey look, song-a-week!

Lately I've been learning and playing with Propellerheads Reason. I absolutely love it. It is the first software I feel comfortable making my own drum tracks in that isn't Fruity Loops. Not that I'm gonna be joining the ranks of Richard D. James any time soon, but hey, I can do simple stuff! For example, look at this little piece of track that I got into my head on the way home from seeing Wicked in Chicago. The drums are simple as can be.
