"Don't Fear The Reaper"
In progress development of remake of "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult (1976).

"Susansides"
Carefully produced with every aspect designed specifically for Susan Hooper's personal history and tastes.

"Bickering Old Furniture"
Channeling the vaguely spooky dream-like emotions of the contents of a once grand but now abandoned old house. By Andrew Bedno. 120bpm 4:24

"Gentle Soundscape with Interruptions"
Exercise melding subtle and abrupt at structural levels. Crass bar breaks, but muted beds and blocking temporally and dynamically blurred. Builds then diverts several times, ultimately going nowhere. By Andrew Bedno. 120bpm 4:18

"Natural Signalz"
Experiment merging/presenting/contrasting digital sounding natural sounds with natural sounding digital sounds. By Andrew Bedno. 4:20

"Michelliope"
Circus carousel calliope version of Michelle by The Beatles. Interpreted by Andrew Bedno. 2:43

NPR Interview with Andrew
Speaking for WNBR-C, by Scott Iseri, recorded on-site the morning of the ride, excerpted from a longer piece on progressive transportation and energy subjects, carried on National Public Radio (WBEZ locally) the next week.

"funkypunch"
138bpm progressive/industrial/jungle, hard beats, sub-bass, scorching sounds, with old jazz breaks. Yet another structured arrangement by Andrew Bedno. 4:20

"Shamlet"
154bpm techno, built around William Shatner performing the "To Be or Not To Be" soliloquy from Shakespeare's Hamlet. By Andrew Bedno. 2:49

"Daniel's Jam 1"
Playful tune arranged by Daniel with some cartoon samples. 2:00

"Laughing Girl"
Fast 160bpm jungle style percussion with weird punctuation, layered, symetrical, intended for dancing. By Andrew Bedno. 4:35

"Sub-bass Rock"
Churns mostly in the low end of audible freqs, with a thrashing 120bpm beat and some good breaks. By Andrew Bedno. 3:09

"Bhill"
Really just an experiment in using one of the cheapest consumer/toy sampling keyboards ever by Casio. Round structure influenced by Phillip Glass. Why the particular sample was used is unknown, but it may be intended to satirize Ingred (my then or soon to be wife, later ex) talking too much about a friend named Bill. Encoded from cassette. 1:05

"Cellulite"
Crazy high speed smashing drums and rumbling bass track, and oppressive psycho chirps, with Ingred reading something about Cellulite. Ingred (my then or soon to be wife, later ex) would have been about 25-26. Uses my Sequential Circuits synthesizer, and Korg drum machine, and she has good micing and emoting. Encoded from cassette. 3:32

"Squawk"
Lots of duck noises and distant disordered sounds, angry wife words, and various alarm clocks. Ingred (my then or soon to be wife, later ex) would have been about 25-26. Uses my Sequential Circuits synthesizer, and Korg drum machine, and she has good micing and emoting. May have been a response to my song "Lurv". Encoded from cassette. 1:06

"Lurv"
Probably recorded on a Tascam 4 track, Uses Sequential Circuits synthesizer, Korg drum machine, and Commodore 64. Fun random bass walk, solid rock drums, and obnoxiously out of key synth splashes and stabs. Encoded from cassette. 5:10

"Beauty"
Probably recorded on a Tascam 4 track, Uses Sequential Circuits synthesizer, and Korg drum machine. Intentionally pure and clean. Simple pop-drum, stringy keys and solid bass. Encoded from cassette. 3:21

"Malarkey"
Probably recorded on a Tascam 4 track, Uses Sequential Circuits synthesizer, and Korg drum machine. Typical Andrew structure, live rock bass and guitar tracks. Encoded from cassette. 5:01

"Dichotomy"
Recorded on Tascam 4 track, Sequential Circuits synthesizer, bass march and synthetic sweeps. Encoded from cassette. All tracks self-performed. 1:03

"Parents"
Recorded on Tascam 4 track, Sequential Circuits synthesizer, cow bell, and Commodore64 talking. Pretty crisp beat, but intentionally sparse and absurd. Encoded from cassette. All tracks self-performed. 1:55

Funny Ed Bedno Answering Machine Message
And now here it is... your tone signal! 0:20

TI99 Fugue
Bach inspired in structure, pace and counterpoint, and makes best use of limitations of TI-99/4A music scoring software. Encoded from cassette. 2:04

Andy and the Mikes
Mike Jack on drums, Mike Minnis on guitar, Andrew Bedno on fretless bass. Only recording of me on fretless, shows technically excellent skills and the influence of Jaco Pastorious, Percy Jones and Tony Levin, though intonation could be better. Includes three quite good original jazz and funk tunes. Encoded from cassette. 12:32

"Mi Navidad"
"Grupo Kaminante" single, recorded in Mexico in 1981. Disco 1, Lado A. Encoded from 45.

"La Ramita"
"Grupo Kaminante" single, recorded in Mexico in 1981. Disco 1, Lado B. Encoded from 45.

"Fieston En Santiago"
"Grupo Kaminante" single, recorded in Mexico in 1981. Disco 2, Lado A. Encoded from 45.

"Mujer Completa"
"Grupo Kaminante" single, recorded in Mexico in 1981. Disco 2, Lado B. Encoded from 45.

"Reality"
Peculiar and poorly recorded little song with rock bass and guitar with Devo style keyboards. All tracks self-performed. Encoded from cassette. 3:42

Scarlet Letter, Band versions
Live recorded band versions of Scarlet Letter project songs. Steve Warren on guitar and vocals. Created for extra credit in a High School class. Songs written by Andrew Bedno. Encoded from cassette. 11:07

Scarlet Letter, Physician
Recorded by track bouncing on a reel to reel. Old out of tune piano and chipmunk vocals with harmony. Created for extra credit on a High School segment on The Scarlet Letter. All tracks self produced. Encoded from cassette. 10:05

Scarlet Letter, Vocabulary
Recorded by track bouncing on a reel to reel. Drone is accelerated guitar (a cheap Sears missing one string) played against a very long decay echo of delay equal to bpm. Lead instrument has some of my best bass solos ever, which were recorded against slowed master. Also some flute bits and harmonized vocals. Words are vocabulary list from High School segment on The Scarlet Letter. All tracks self produced. Encoded from cassette. 4:14

Colors practice in Sayulita Mexico
Possibly the best recording ever of Colors (Steve Warren on guitar, John Morand on drums, Andrew Bedno on bass). Includes 7 original works, one cover (Devo's Uncontrollable Urge), and some goofing around. Recorded on a simple stereo boom box, on a clear summer day, in a clean airy little brick house in a small Mexican village. All three of us were at a high-point in musical competence. Reflects lots of Dixie Dregs modern tech-jazz influence. Encoded from cassette. 32:12

Douglas Freeman HS, Xmas
High school orchestra, age 16, Christmas concert. Good recording and competent performance for youngsters. I was one of maybe a dozen flutists. Encoded from commercially produced cassette. 38:00

B.A. Graves Elementary School band performance
I was one of maybe four flutists, but can be heard in this on piccolo. Most members had only been playing a few years (I was 12), and the school was almost all African-American. But the musical director was skilled, stern, enthusiastic, with high standards. Recorded on cheap mono personal machine under a seat, but pretty good anyway. Encoded from cassette. 39:10

"The Foreclosure"
"The Foreclosure" - black and white comedy parodying the Snidely Whiplash / You must pay the rent / I can't pay the rent style silent genre. Short film by various Chicago area artists and friends including my parents presumably in the late 1960s. Encoded from VHS, which was converted from film (16mm?)
