A Curation … is an experiment in using stock things – stock sound loops from Apple, a stock black cat via Pixabay and stock video loops from Ignite Motion, all royalty free. All except Magenta Mole, which exclusively uses one ZynAddSubFX synth.

All composition is ChintzBaby’s, which is the best bit.

Thanks to : Apple, IgniteMotion, Mark McCurry, Harald Hvaal (ZynAddSubFX), Mike Monday, Gerhard Lengeling and Chris Adam (eMagic Logic original developers) and Dan Dennedy (ShotCut). None of whom knows me.

Lovely cat from : OpenClipart-Vectors.

I really must get my videos up on Vimeo and YouTube – megabytes of them all, could take a while. Probably longer than it took to make them.

Enjoy 🙂



What’s the New Album going to be like then?


Well – it’s an experiment…And it sounds just fine for that! I wanted to see if you can create a whole wodge of finished tracks just using the free (royalty free) samples that come with Apple Logic Pro 9.

Just samples. But not in their entirety, snippets thereof to create new tunes from the standard ones mixed nicely together. I think it was an experiment that worked, as you’ll hear.

A long with the New Album, I’ve made some videos (the advice from is to have A Video for each song – even if it’s just the album title as a still picture. Really). So, I’ve gone one step further and created videos, soon to be released on Vimeo/Youtube, that use snippets of royalty free videos (from the good peeps at, just to keep the spirit of the thing going.

For the videos, I use the excellent video editor called ShotCut – this is free and Open Source and works well with my Linux setup.

Anyways – the album is going to be released, via CD Baby to iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and loads of other outlets I’ve never heard of, so it’ll be online near you very soon.

5th May 2017, in fact.

And the picture is of my barcode which cost me $20 – and I’m not planning on making many CDs so not very useful, but really nice to have!

More news soon,




5th May 2017 – new album out !


I’m gathering all of the stuff needed to bung out an Album very soon – less than a month away!  So far, I have a taster video of one of dem tracks :

I’ve joined the PRS, which is a bit of an ambition of mine (it’s easy to join if you have a hundred quid, but best if you have something for them to collect royalties on, yey!).

And, for another hundred quid or so I’ve paid for distribution to all the usual places – Amazon, iTunes, Spotify etc etc, so you won’t be able to move without seeing it somewhere. Oh, and I have a barcode to play with too – so exciting!

I’m also looking at this interesting site :, trying to give some of it a go, starting with getting ‘ChintzBaby’ onto the interwebs, officially. I seem to have bagged my unique name on most of the good ‘uns:

So – what’s the Album called then? You’ll have to wait and see!
