Erroneous Bosch – demo track

November 6th, 2020 by Corey A. Edwards

“Erroneous Bosch” started out as noodling, grew into a theme, and then spent around 8 months in the “fiddly” stage. I even gave up on it for a while and woulda likely forgotten it had my wife not said: “that’s good, why aren’t you working on that?”

Why, indeed?

American Idle – Steamy Creamy Beanness

March 27th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

I’ve been getting back into guitaring, as I like to say, and this has gotten me back into … looking back at things which have sprung before, unbidden from the instruments I torture.

Steamy Creamy Beanness is a musical idea I’d almost forgotten about – a bit of doggerel, a knock off – but I rather like this short edit of my initial concept combined with this silly, time-lapse video, here. Doop-de-doo … what else lies in these vaults, I wonder

Steamy Creamy Beanness

Once again, please forgive the sound quality (much less the hamhanded playing) – this is recorded live onto boombox sometime in 2002.

For more of this kind of torture …

American Idle – Part the Second; Still In The Basement

Thinking quite correctly that the better bits would be at the end rather than the beginning, I started transferring the most recent tapes to digital and sifting through the resulting tracks for nuggets with which to kick start the practice and aim of my renewed passion.

American Idle ~ or ~ The Early Recordings of CAE

November 26th, 2011 by Corey A. Edwards

CAE - Early Noises Collected


I fell in love with music very early on in life but, as with the visual arts, never really caught the bug to create any myself until well past said age.

In 1989, I began work as a security guard and there met Bruce Norton, an amateur blues guitarist. In casual conversation with him, I voiced the guitar-playing pipe-dream most young men of our culture have and he assured me that the dream could be realized. In short order, he sold me a guitar and showed me a few tips and tricks.
