borris?

Some say he's an entirely made up character. Others?... He's really someone famous just goofing around here. Still others say borris is a genius of sorts, who believes time management is the same thing as time travel. I do know he plays electric tambourine, ...and all the other instruments on most of his songs below.

Online Mastering? LANDR might be helpful December 2, 2014
I tried a few of my old songs, just to give LANDR a try. Definitely did …something.

Fadeouts RULE! February 1, 2014
Back in the day when I was together enough to actually upload music I recorded here at the almighty icompositions.com, I remember being repeatedly hassled for my seemingly endless use of what I consider to be one of the most powerful tools used in songwriting.

Genres October 26, 2005
Schrodinger's Cat Paradox is one of the songs of mine that I like best. I guess I would describe it as 170 BPM fast movin', hard drivin', genre ignoring', fun! I hope you get a chance to check it out and read the funny and interesting comments that some people have left.

'Other' seems to be my genre of choice although I felt that I should choose 'Rock/Pop' for Schrodinger's Cat Paradox. I wish I didn't have to pick though because it's really not rock or pop - really. What genre is it then? Someone said it's Electronic because the effected xylophones sound like video game noises. Would that be Electro, Electronica, Electro Chair or what? Who knows? And I guess I could say, "who cares?" But as you will see from the following brief entry, people do seem to care.

Speaking Of Genres
by borris/cjacks

Right before I was kicked out of Genre School, one of my instructors, told me that the correct genre for my song, Schrodinger's Cat Paradox, must be 'Hasbro Era Fancybeat'. Well, I told him that he was nuts and that it could only be a lavishly crafted combination of 'Future Gameshow', 'Hamster Wheel', 'New-In-Box', 'Space Yodel', 'Humpty Dollhouse', 'Turbo Gypsy', and possibly 'Outlaw Carnival' or Traditional Beat Pirate'. Then I realized that I hadn't noticed the whole 'Hechno-Promtractor' influence and that, in fact, the overall feel was really more like some kind of sped up 'Breakfastbeat', mixed with the slightest hint of 'Ashtray Pizza'.

That was all it took.
