"And they're all made out of ticky-tacky..."

Recommended Posts

The theme song of Weeds is an older song by Malvina Reynolds. It stuck in my head, I liked the text a lot and it seemed funny to me to treat an 60s protest song as a church hymn and write an old-fashioned choral prelude to it. So for a contest (that I didn't win anything in and forced you to write for a funny combination of instruments, with at least on harpsichord) I made this little ditty.

In celebration of the getting alive of this site I thought to share some of my work :)

This one is mainly for fun and pretty weird

Jaap, I very much wish I could hear a life version of this piece! It is such a fun piece to listen to. I never feel lost, nor as if I've been listening for to long of a time. I love the harmonic language. Bravo!

I don't know the song you mention but the harmonies in this are really cool, I hear a lot of Messiaen and maybe Langlais, these colors weren't on your older works I know, if this is how you sound now, sounds so french.

Wow! So much energy, and such interesting rhythms and harmonies. I've given this multiple listens, and I really enjoy it.

Thank you all for the kind words.

I am still not sure if the right mp3 is player. It seems cropped on my safari (OSX Yosemite). so just to be sure I refer you to my site, that includes the link to the box.net-folder.
