The Telomere Clock
Recorded 2012-2013
Posted February 22, 2013.
Wow. It's been more than 5 years since I took any musical idea far enough to wrap it up and post it here. I'm really excited about this piece, and I welcome any feedback on it. Hopefully, it won't be nearly so long before the next one.
All parts by Shawn
Thanks as always to those who helped critique along the way: Adam, Kevin, and Meghan.
An additional shout out to Schenning and "WTF" Figi for getting me back in the groove last spring.

A Work In Progress
Recorded Summer 2007.
Posted October 22, 2007.
What's this? Two new songs in only a few months? Practically unheard of around here! This song was recorded with somewhat different process than the others. Mostly because I came up with the vocal parts while singing loudly in my convertible on the 805 Freeway.
Shawn: Guitars, vocals, percussion, synths, programming.
Steve: Drums
Very helpful feedback along the way was provided by Adam, Dana, Kevin, Gary, and Meghan - who also came up with the title.
