When I first discovered Tracking Software (tracking software is kind of like sequencing software only vertical instead of horizontal!), I fell in love with song writing. Pretty soon I was delivering some cool 8 and 16 track songs to my friends while I was in my last few years at school. iXia was my label and I officially released one album before going on to write many more songs and eventually form the band Undertone.


The Others (2002)

Before Undertone was born, Daniel McCarthy (theDan) joined up with me under then band name; iXia. These are some of the tracks that we produced in our early days before we left the iXia label behind and got serious about our music.
There are some pretty fun tracks in this list.

Serve Chilled (unreleased) (2001)

This album was never officially released under the band name iXia, but was the basis for me getting together with Daniel McCarthy (theDan) to form the band undertone. I found that this album was too dynamic in nature and represented an uncontrolled evolution in my musical styling.
You can clearly hear that this album was produced in lower quality applications like Scream Tracker and Mad Tracker. When Dan came along and I decided to focus my production energies, we began working in more professional sequencing applications. By comparison, the quality shift in the undertone work is noticable.
