Ver TudoA vaguely opaque short story about a small establishment in New Orleans providing "metaphysical services". Sometimes the echos last... As always; written, recorded, arranged and mixed using SONAR Platinum. The velvet walls (dark red) Thick curtains are drawn down tight (there's no light) It's not too long (too long now) A feeling that I can't stay... Ver Tudo A sparrow speaks (hear its song) You don't have to be your fear (fear's too near) For nights too long (too long now) Will bring you to your return... Ver Tudo As the room spins out of control, it feeds your doubt Bring it back to life, bring it into being Eyes closed, exposed Drawn in, forced out, made real... Unconcealed The velvet walls The curtains are open The night too long Is nowhere to be again... Ver Tudo

If...! by Jean-Michel Jarre & Little Boots(Steve C Remix)
If...! by Jean-Michel Jarre & Little Boots(Steve C Remix)This is my remix of the song "If!..." by Jean-Michel Jarre and Little Boots, original version available here: http://www.vevo.com/watch/jean-michel-jarre/if-!/UK9LA1401106 Part electronic and part rock, and as always created and mixed using SONAR Platinum. It's a little on the short side, but for some reason that seemed to fit the format.
Celtara - Part 1 and 2
Celtara - Part 1 and 2It starts as a small ensemble performing in an 18th century church, then time stretches into the 21st century for a more electronic take on things... only to return in the end for proper closure. As always, created and mixed in SONAR. Edit: Female vocal lines courtesy of the free Kontakt library Clara's Vocal, available here: http://vstbuzz.com/freebies/claras-vocal/
Future ReaktionThis one is a little different... a combination of post-processing experimentation with self-oscillating Reaktor patches, loop manipulation, synth layering, along with lots of reverbs and delays. As always, created and mixed in SONAR.
Silver PasteA semi-straightforward guitar-driven rock instrumental tune in A, with an occasional time signature change. And perhaps a little Dregs inspiration here and there. As always, created, recorded and mixed using SONAR.

Rudimental - Baby ft MNEK & Sinead Harnett (SteveC Remix)My take of Rudimental's "Baby" using a mix of electronic drums, synths and FX, along with a little electric guitar. And of course the original vocals sliced and diced to suit.

SteveC Mix GearfestPuremixContest
SteveC Mix GearfestPuremixContestMy take on the Liza Colby Band’s ‘Oh Baby’, as part of the online PureMix contest. Mixed in Cakewalk SONAR X2a using all included plugins: Mostly ProChannel modules, a few Sonitus FX thrown in for good measure, one Amp Sim, and Console Emulation on everything. The only exceptions are the occasional vocal harmonies that were generated using Melodyne in Presonus Studio One v2.5 (via ARA), and added back into the SONAR project. My only artistic goal was to make something that sounded interesting to me. I've heard cleaner mixes, but I was picturing something a little more raw/saturated, yet with good separation.
