Samples of music by Kittysneezes. Some covers, some previews of albums, some just one-off things. Lots of stuff.

Music: 8 1/8

Album photograph from Night of Desirable ObjectsThis is a piece I did out of loops from Snakefinger‘s “8 1/4″, itself a reworking of themes from Nino Rota‘s score for 8 1/2.  The version of “8 1/4″ I used was from the Live At The Vic album.  Each loop is the start of the next section of the song.  I was kind of in a Steve Reich mood when I did this.

Camarillo Brillo

This was recorded for the Cover Freak Frank Zappa Tribute, Conceptual Continuity. We chose this one, quite honestly, because it looked like it was one of the few Zappa songs that didn’t necessarily REQUIRE a lot of technical skill. There aren’t a lot of those, actually, part of why FZ’s so cool. I really like this song a lot anyway — on the automation system at my college radio station, which was just a big, 60-CD changer, we had the “Left of the Dial” promo Zappa comp in there, and for whatever reason, the player really liked “Camarillo Brillo”, so if there wasn’t anyone in the booth, you had a pretty good chance of hearing that song.   The next year, we went to an mp3 system for the automation, but I think we put “Camarillo Brillo” in there anyway. It’s an awesome song. On this version, I think on the verses I’m channelling David Liebe Hart a bit.

I Need A Chick

This was recorded for the Not Necessarily Beautiful But Mutated: Volume 9 DEVO tribute compilation that was distributed at DEVOtional 2010: A Decade of DEVOtion, a DEVO convention that occurred August 28, 2010. We still weren’t there in person — next time, Gadget, NEXT TIME — but this is the third time in a row we’ve been on the CD! The song was recorded over about 2 weeks, give or take at Studio Kittysneezes; Dale was busy with about fifty other things, so he wasn’t able to perform on it.  But he gave the finished product a thumbs up.

Some Selected TODCRA Productions Tracks

E-mail response to Evangelion: Death and Rebir...

A long time ago, TODCRA Productions, the precursor to Kittysneezes, used to have a page on mp3.com; you could buy full albums and everything. We actually had a pretty substantial discography, but when mp3.com died, they took the tracks with them. So, now they’re much harder to find.

We’ve been looking for a while to figure out a way to get these tracks available again, but there hasn’t been a whole lot of free venues filling the void Mp3.com left — so I ended up just hosting the entire discography here! Here’re a few different cuts you might check out — along with notes about them. These aren’t necessarily the best TODCRA tracks (if such things exist) — but with about 2 GB of TODCRAP to go through, this might make things slightly less daunting.

EP: he is really bad at playing that song…

Hey, remember those Video 45s that Sony used to release in the early 80s? A VHS of about 3 or 4 music videos by an artist? Those were pretty cool; I almost wore out my Thomas Dolby and Blotto ones. So, for the holiday season, I put together a Kittysneezes Video 45! Except that it’s not put out by Sony and no VHS copies of it exist. Unless someone out there is bored enough to dump these to tape. In which case, more power to you, I suppose. Sure, the individual tracks have been issued over the past week and a half — but I didn’t reveal my master plan! Now, here is the Kittysneezes Video EP: he is really? bad at playing that song…

On this recording, Kittysneezes is:
Rev. Syung Myung Me: Vox, Guitar, Banjo, Keyboards, Drum Machine, Thingamagoop

Watch Us Work It (Real Version)

This was recorded for the Not Necessarily Beautiful But Mutated: Volume 8 DEVO tribute compilation that was distributed at HARDCORE DEVOTIONAL 2009, a DEVO convention that occurred August 29, 2009. I wish Kittysneezes could have been there in person, but at least we were on the CD! The song was recorded over a rather long amount of time in Studio Kittysneezes, and finally finished in June of 2009. This is completely and utterly different than the “alternate version” posted earlier. Continue reading

Watch Us Work It (Alternate Version)

This cover of the DEVO song from the new 12″ single was recorded during downtime in the sessions for the REAL version of “Watch Us Work It”, which we’re recording for the upcoming Not Necessarily Beautiful But Mutated Vol. 9 compilation to be distributed at the 2009 DEVOtional. This was recorded live to 1 stereo track in Cubase, which explains why the mixing of the guitar is so low (once I eyeballed the pot levels, I went back to Dale’s vocoder). Dale wasn’t in on the sessions for this one, and when he arrived later that evening to work on the real one, he said it was “terrible”.

He’s probably right, but I kinda like it anyway. This version will not appear on anything, most likely.

On this recording, Kittysneezes is:
Rev. Syung Myung Me: Vocoded Vox, Drum Programming
John Keeley: Guitar
