Shoebox of Horror – Kill You in Your Sleep

Recorded by William L. Cox with KJ Johnson using the internet, Pro Tools, Logic, and plain old Windows Audio Recorder. Kim:  "All the cool parts were written by Wil Cox. Then he shared them with KJ Johnson who wrote the lyrics and vocal melody line. This is, undoubtedly, the greatest love song ever written. Ever." […]

Shoebox of Horror – Do it for the Children

By Wil!  I did this whole thing in Logic in the back room in my apartment.  Logic is neat. I called my old friend Tim up and asked him what the most horrible thing he could think of was.  He said something to the effect of "Imagine you're the last person alive, all organic matter […]

Shoebox of Horror – You and I

This song features a chorus of Adrian Anguianos. Some Gisella Faggis can be heard in there too! The keyboard part was recorded via MIDI in ProTools but everything else was finished in Logic. The guitar and bass I plugged directly into my computer via my Ozone. The voices I recorded using the internal microphone on […]

Shoebox of Horror – Brothers

Okay, so this is an odd one. Within the vein of Prairie Home Companion, Gisella and Adrian present to you a story of brothers. "Lyrics" written by Gisella and Adrian, with a story written by Gisella and sound design/recording by Adrian, and Gisella as accordion player extraordinaire. Enjoy! Brothers

Shoebox of Horror – Nobody's Children

This song is about the movie Devil's Backbone. Which is a movie about ghosts. It was created using ProTools, but used some voicing from Logic for the MIDI parts.

Shoebox of Piracy – Black Flag

This is my Piracy Song. I only went a little bit nuts – except the guitar and voice everything is simple MIDI orchestration. The guitar I recorded on a mic, and I did multiple passes on the voice. I tried to find the balance between in and out of key that a pirate might sing […]

Shoebox of Piracy – Pirates of Silicon Seas

Adrian locked himself in a studio for a few hours and recorded this. He used ProTools and recorded himself over and over again. That's him on the accordion, that's him on the drums. You can even hear him trying to sound like a group of pirates. Pirates of Silicon Seas
