||ExplicitRobots and Aliens||I started this song aiming for something calmer than the others I've posted so far, so before I laid down a single note, I set a slow tempo.Â Proving that music is never simple, this song ended up being relatively energetic anyway.||3/9/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitThe Life of a Mouse||I guess it's normal for me to come up with music first, then start writing words that seem to fit it. Life of a Mouse started that way. A few lines in, the idea for the final song started forming and I ended up rewriting the lines that had come before ...||2/25/2009||Free||View in iTunes|
