about

I started writing complete "songs" a long time ago. Most were what you'd expect from a kid. Some, though, were actually decent. Since then, in the past seventeen years, I have written several hundreds of, if not over a thousand, sketches, tunes, songs, compositions, arrangements, and etc. I have notebooks upon notebooks, floppy disks for three different sequencers and synthesizers, hard drives, and loose papers full of these works.

Only a fraction have currently been released; only a larger fraction will ever be sold. Why let them all go to waste?

The Release Project is an always-growing album that contains some of my favorite and most interesting unreleased works from the past seventeen years and moving forward. Some of these recordings are the originals (warts and crappy recording and all), some are re-recorded on newer tech. All are items that I don't want to see gathering dust. Be sure to click on each track to get information about when, why, and how it was put together.

I hope you enjoy them all. Please check back often for new tracks.

Track Name: And You Laugh [Acoustic Organic Mix] (2005)
Tell me how it's come to this?
Tell me why I feel I missed?
Tell me why I didn't stop it
Try to stop it from the start?

Tell me, with your voice so pure,
Tell me why I feel so sure
Tell me how the castles that we built have pushed us so apart...

And you laugh
It rings musical, and so kind
And you show me all the doors that I kept tightly locked inside my mind
And you laugh
Rings purity, and so bold
And you show me all the walls that I had built so tall inside my soul...

And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile, you beguile
And you laugh, and you laugh
While you're breaking my heart
And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile like a child
And you laugh, and you laugh
While we're drifting apart

And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile, you beguile
And you laugh, and you laugh
While you're breaking my heart
And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile like a child
And you laugh, and you laugh
While we're drifting apart...

Tell me why I dream my dreams?
Tell me, is life as it seems?
Tell me why I lay here on
A concrete sea and shattered glass?

Tell me, while you laugh and smile,
Tell me how you've grown so wild.
Tell me why the sky and why the earth and why we're in between.
Track Name: And You Laugh [Original Mix] (2004)
Tell me how it's come to this?
Tell me why I feel I missed?
Tell me why I didn't stop it
Try to stop it from the start?

Tell me, with your voice so pure,
Tell me why I feel so sure
Tell me how the castles that we built have pushed us so apart...

And you laugh
It rings musical, and so kind
And you show me all the doors that I kept tightly locked inside my mind
And you laugh
Rings purity, and so bold
And you show me all the walls that I had built so tall inside my soul...

And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile, you beguile
And you laugh, and you laugh
While you're breaking my heart
And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile like a child
And you laugh, and you laugh
While we're drifting apart

And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile, you beguile
And you laugh, and you laugh
While you're breaking my heart
And you laugh, and you laugh
And you smile like a child
And you laugh, and you laugh
While we're drifting apart...

Tell me why I dream my dreams?
Tell me, is life as it seems?
Tell me why I lay here on
A concrete sea and shattered glass?

Tell me, while you laugh and smile,
Tell me how you've grown so wild.
Tell me why the sky and why the earth and why we're in between.
Track Name: Love [Club Mix] (2006)
Love...
Love...

Love
It comes around
It comes full circle
It comes as a surprise
Love
It's unfamiliar
It's unforgotten
It shines bright in your eyes.

Love
It has no memory
It's extrasensory
It boils inside my heart
Love
It's consequential
It's more than sexual
It aches when we're apart.
Track Name: She Won't (1997)
I met a girl upon a subway that I never ride
It seems I missed the one I always take
She smiled at me as I edged by her and excused myself
I was so surprised that chemistry came into play

She asked about a novel that I carried on with me
We introduced and gave our hands a shake
My finger lost the page that I had held so carefully
All this because I missed my regular subway that day

But she
She won't be smiling at me
Playing her games all the while
Filling my world with her smile
And her perfume
'Cause, sadly
She and I won't make it "we"
She won't see how we would live
She won't know all I could give
'Cause she can't, and she won't.

I looked at where we were and saw my stop was drawing close
I told her that I had enjoyed our time
She laughed at me and teased me that I was oblivious
And wrote her numbers on a scrap of paper with a smile

I waved as I stepped on the platform from the train we met
But on the street a storm surprised and stunned
With no umbrella with me I was shortly sopping wet
And soon those numbers in my pocket had completely run

So she
She won't be smiling at me
Playing her games all the while
Filling my world with her smile
And her perfume
'Cause, sadly
She and I won't make it "we"
She won't see how we would live
She won't know all I could give
'Cause she can't, and so she won't.

Da da da da da da da...

But she
She won't be smiling at me
Playing her games all the while
Filling my world with her smile
And her perfume
'Cause, sadly
She and I won't make it "we"
She won't see how we would live
She won't know all I could give
'Cause she can't, and so she won't.
Track Name: Outro [2004]
I'm so invincible...

Ask myself what I'm seeking
Twisted time, it runs away
I ask myself what I'm seeking
Twisted time, it runs away, it runs away from
Me. Me, who am I? What's my meaning?
I ask myself how I could possibly be.

I tremble, I fall
I survive against it all
I stumble, I stand tall
I stand tall
I stand tall

At times I feel I can't let go
At times I feel I fall
Purple lightbulb, tell me,
Am I so invincible?

Every choice we make has a consequence
It is our requirement to discover
What those consequences are
And as such, to shape our choices
