Shoebox of Time – All Right Now

This is the other time song I did.  Most of the instruments were tracked on, and then some layers were hastily recorded into my laptop microphone in my parents kitchen while my sister was watching a movie.  I layered the whole thing together in Audacity. All Right Now

Shoebox of Time – Wound UP

Oddly enough I didn't have a lot of time to work on this theme.  What ended up happening came out of mucking around in the studio for a day or two.  The fact that the music sounds a bit like a clock working was kind of a mistake.  With the exception of the Bass guitar [...]

Shoebox of Time – Intervals

This is just an instrumental.  Done in Logic. Intervals

Shoebox of Time – Chronos' Music Box

Adrian decided to try his hand at a purely instrumental piece this time. So this is how he interpreted time into a song. In other news Adrian would like to make a video for this song. The basic concept behind this song is that somewhere in Chronos' dwelling is a long forgotten room filled with [...]

Shoebox of Songs – A Fool and His Shoes

Adrian joined forces with Gisella Faggi for this old timey tune. She can be heard on dah fiddle. Adrian got carried away and decided to record himself playing the mouth harp, harmonica, spoons, and a box (all in a mediocre fashion). Enjoy! A Fool and His Shoes

Shoebox of Shoes – Shoes Made This Song

Shoes like to dance right? Well if shoes had a friend called DJKT that could play a glass bottle as if it was a set of drums, had mad beatboxing skillz like Adrian, had the ability to record sounds with a MyTouch Slide, and could use ProTools to combine them all together, I'd like to [...]

Shoebox of Shoes – Pair

Adrian definitely went outside of his comfort zone for this one. It's based on a story he wrote for a class YEEEAARRS ago. He sat in an isolated room with his accordion and recorded it all in ProTools. This song reeks of melancholy. Pair

Shoebox of Shoes – Get Gone

A song about shoes.  Or the lack thereof.  Done in a variety of programs, mostly with canned instruments. Get Gone

Shoebox of Shoes – Bluma Thurman

Recorded with a microphone painted red for a song about the blues. Lucas Schira (girascopic) wrote and performed the track for those who have gone through a similar situation…using Ableton Live. Bluma Thurman

Shoebox of Frontiers – The Return

Recorded in Audacity, edited in Logic and Pro Tools and Audacity. The melody is shaky, but I like the lyrics. The Return

Shoebox of Frontiers – FUNtiers!

Kirstie came all the way from L.A. to Chicago to make this song.  Wil helped a little. FUNtiers!

Shoebox of Frontiers – Just My Luck.

It was weird recording these vocals in front of an open window, and having my next door neighbor out on his patio, "reading." Just My Luck.

Shoebox of Frontiers – Last Shot

Adrian was excited to write a song for the frontiers topic but was not sure what to write about. He asked Gisella to write a short story about a drunk in a bar that gets himself into trouble. He adapted that story into this song. He then asked Gunnar if he would be so kind [...]

Shoebox of Frontiers – Technology Made This Song

The frontiers of technology have brought us many good things. As it turns out this song isn't one of them. Enjoy listening to the fruits of technology! Technology Made This Song Also! Check out this song's official music video on the brand spanking new Brandy Brothers' YouTube Channel – – It still needs some [...]
