Hyperspace (2002, 2004)

I originally wrote Hyperspace around 2002, in hopes that it would be a full-fledged song. The riff itself has a very science fiction, spacey feel to it. I grew impatient with the development of the song, so I shelved it.

In 2004, I was working on a project for the cinematography course I was taking at the time. I scored the short film (shot on film) "Cleaning Service," to an adapted version of the original "Hyperpace."

I was so pleased with the outcome of the "Cleaning Service" score that I don't think I can bring myself to ruin 2004's "Hyperspace" by fleshing it out as a pop song or whatever.

While we were shooting the short film, I engineered a song written and performed by one of my actors, John Ingles (billed in "Cleaning Service" as J.P. Ingles). John was a former bandmate of mine and a good friend, so it was fun to record his song "A Boy with a Cookie."

It was during that recording session that I decided to get a better microphone.
