A Mixed Up Christmas by Matt Bennett

I released another album today – this one has Electronic/EDM/Trance styles plus a jazz rendition of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and an orchestral original song called Communion, Pizza, Lights. You can buy on my Bandcamp page, or get a physical copy here. I would be thrilled if you just gave it a listen, and share if you like it!

It really is entirely mixed up. Different styles with one theme. Enjoy!

Oh Come Emmanuel (1861) – Matt Bennett

Electronic / Synth version of the 1861 Christmas Tune (Hymn). I took some liberties with phrasing in the melody to make it sound more like EDM. I think a lot of the phrasing was in consideration of the lyrics, and since this has no lyrics, I wanted to change it to emphasize the beautiful melody. Listen or buy HERE.

Nobody Gets Me – Story

This is the first “traditional” blues song that I wrote. The knocking sound at 3:32 was interesting. I searched for an hour looking for samples of knocking, and nothing I dropped into the track sounded or worked well with the song. I grabbed my microphone, hit record, and knocked on my desk, and it ended up perfect. For the video, as usual, I just picked random open source videos to keep it interesting. Enjoy!

My first published fiction!

One of my short stories, Knock Knock Knock, was accepted to be published in an anthology. These are exciting times! I am grouped in with a collection of amazing writers – I had a chance to read some of the other stories in the book and feel very honored to be included.
