about

I found two songs sitting in my computer that hadn't yet incorporated into a larger project. Those songs were "The Super-Spooky Mansion" and "Goodbye, Gameboy." One was a chiptune, and the other was an acoustic tune. I tried to figure out something I could do with them together, and got the idea to try making an album that combined chiptunes with uke, and that's how "At My Desk" came to exist. The title, as you may have guessed, tells you where I spent all my time while working on this album. I hope you like it!

I'm into all sorts of music, including folk, pop, rock, and electronic. I use various computer programs and Little Sound DJ on my Gameboy to make music. Apart from that, I also play mandolin, guitar, piano, and ukulele.

Track Name: Cub
Little claws, bent and blunted.
Little fangs, fallen out.
Little time, almost wasted,

And you don't even know.
And you don't even know.

Little house, by the forest,
Burning down, glowing white.
Break the rules, and things get easy.

And you don't even know.
And you don't even know.

I think it's time to cool your head.
I think the sky's falling down.
Everything in frozen motion.

You thought you would know,
But you don't even know.
Track Name: Akkorokamui, Part 2: Electric Boogaloo
If the sea could swallow me,
Would you show me how to breathe?

If the waves overheard,
Were miles away instead?
Track Name: Goodbye, Gameboy
Open eyes, open mind.
Keeping track, keeping time.
And everything else was vestigial.
And the world sank away.
Waste of time, waste of space,
Everyone's lost their way.

Plastic world, quilted sky.
Say goodnight, say goodbye.
Nothing sticks around forever,
No one ever wants to go away.
Wasting time, wasting space,
Everyone's lost their way.

Closing time, every day.
Can't decide, go or stay.
Wasting time, thrown away,
All of us, in our own way.

Goodbye Gameboy, goodbye world,
Everything comes unfurled.
Nothing sticks around forever.
No one ever wants to go away.
Wasting time, thrown away,
All of us, in our own way.
