I'm the drummer for a band called International Fateline. I also write my own songs, and hope one day I can get an ensemble to bring them to life. That's why I have this profile here.
I really don't know what genre you'd call my songs: post-new age? Most of them need bass clarinet, oboe, cello and keyboard, and I would love to include other instruments. Most of them also have lyrics and I haven't decided exactly what kind of voice they need, so I'm willing to try different voices. I don't hesitate to compose in odd meters. I'm not a trained composer: I put melodies together intuitively (and harmonize simplistically), many of them received in dreams or hypnagogic states. Some of my songs are pretty well planned out, some of them are only the barest sketches. I would welcome ideas on completing and improving them. I also have cover ideas for starting out and rounding out a set list for performing.
I have a regular job, so it's evenings and weekends for me. The tracks I have here are demos recorded back in 2002 with two separate bands.
If you want to contact me, you can email me. My name is stanford -dot- charles.
