Revisiting an old music collaboration

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since I made this first blog post. It’s even harder to believe that it’s been four years since Tim Granda and I spent a few woozy Thursday nights at his apartment in Red Bank, NJ recording the music mentioned in that post. Sadly, while those sessions created some awesome memories and solidified a good friendship, musically all that resulted were a few rough sketch ideas and two semi-finished songs. I hoped to finished at least a third before we were through, “Keep It On,” heard here as two rough idea sketches, as I really liked how that one was coming together, but it was not to be. Tim fell in love and moved away, and that…

Eric does soundtrack music for Weird Tales

Late last year, Stephen Segal, Editorial & creative director at the legendary Weird Tales, asked me to contribute some soundtrack music for a series of brief promotional videos he had in the works. The second of those videos (and first featuring my music) is now online. Check it out: The track is called “Blasphemous Horrors”. If you found those creepy sounds interesting, you can surf right over here and download all 13 one-minute compositions I did for Weird Tales. I think you’ll find them jarring, disturbing, and just this side of cool.

New album of guitar noise

If you don’t check out my music archive blog, you may have missed the latest release from my m2 project, which focuses on ambient guitar soundscapes and walls of sound. Unlike the much softer and more somber Six Stories, released earlier this year, this new one is very raw and ugly. Check it out: m2 Ashes 1) Choking on Ashes (7:18) 2) Sleep Paralysis (8:48) 3) Dry Story (7:11) 4) Are His Defenses Going To Hold Up? (3:28) 5) Climbing Mountains and Falling Short (16:16) All songs (c) Eric San Juan 2009. Free to distribute, just ask. More information on this release here.

Eric sings for you

A week or so I started another blog meant to be nothing more than an archive of my music. (Follow it on Facebook here.) Last night I posted an album I recorded three years ago. An album with (gasp!) singing. I am a terrible singer. I really ought not try to sing. But here is the album, anyway: X-Sweet One Last Goodbye 1) The New X-Sweet (0:37) 2) Goodbye, My Friend (4:15) 3) Roll It Over (2:53) 4) Purple Rose (2:40) 5) Blue Moon (3:02) 6) Breaking (4:57) 7) Rowhouses (0:50) 8) The Bottom of Things (2:09) 9) Martha Dear (4:35) 10) Holy Roller (4:07) 11) Oh Sister (5:38) 12) One Last Goodbye (1:32) All songs (c) Eric San Juan 2006. Free to distribute, just…
