melodic instrumental music composed without elementary
knowledge of music theory, let alone the ability to play any
musical instrument at all, including a triangle. Mousesongs
refers to the basic device used while making the music.
All songs are in MP3 format. I will update the page
whenever a new song appears.
Part 1: Sputnik
Part 2: Vostok
Part 3: Sojuz
Part 4: The Celebration of the Cosmic Age
Sergey Korolyov (1907-1966, also spelled Sergei Korolev, "Koroljov" is the Czech spelling) was a mastermind behind the early Soviet space successes - Sputnik and Vostok programmes. He served 6 years in gulag after a false accusation, later to become the Chief Designer of Soviet spacecrafts. Until his death in 1966 his name was unkown to the public as he was forced to work in secret. This song in several parts is a small tribute to this seminal figure of space exploration. From the musical point of view, "Sergej Koroljov" is basically an exercise in arranging a simple, repeating chord progression in various styles, sharing the same parts across the entire piece. / I dedicate this track to my dear Michaela.
an entire album of melodic retro electronica! Eight varied tracks which might appeal to the fans of
Jean Michel Jarre, Röyksopp, Kraftwerk or the melodic side of Tangerine Dream. Not that the music tries to copy them; I just
believe that it speaks similar language. You can listen to it and download it at
Jamendo.com, or, if you prefer to listen to a single,
flowing track, at SoundCloud.com.
The album including CD cover can also be downloaded at Uloz.to as a lossless FLAC or an MP3 at 320 kbps.
a short song dedicated to the groundbreaking Czech graphics designer Ladislav Sutnar. Electronics, vocoder, live
acoustic guitar, glockenspiel, electronic and acoustic percussion. I wanted it to sound a bit like the French
band Air. Big thanks to Karel Řepa for the guitar.
Pes v dešti (A dog in the rain) (composed and recorded together with Karel Řepa)4.15 (added 2010-12-28)
a slower electroacoustic track for two guitars, raw synth, bass, rain and a dog.
Composed and recorded with Karel Řepa in August 2010 during a summer storm. The dog is neighbours'.
a kind of hommage and a kind of ironic look at the instrumental electronic music of the 1980s. I'd like to
dedicate this one to "polish Jarre" Marek Biliński, whose work from early 80s inspired me to make this track
[Through the day] a melodic electronic track, quite catchy (as I wish to believe).
I made the drum loops and most of the sounds myself; the thing was composed,
like many other tracks, in Cubase 2.5 from 1992. This is also an electronic remake of an older track,
Skrze sen [Through the dream]
[A detailed account of the harvest home festival in the village of Horni Vrbova (version with effects)]
a mid-tempo melodic electronic track in 3/4, with emphasis on percussive sounds and with a number of raw efects,
slightly inspired by Kraftwerk (especially the percussion). The name is a parody of names like "Space Dance",
"Laser Tekkno" and "Among the Stars", so popular among electronic music composers - so I set out to make up a
name which would be as dissimilar to similar ones as possible :-)
