IT HAD TO BE YOU Man Parrish loves Big Band / Swing. So, he decided to take on the genre himself, and do a delightful version of the classic/standard "It Had To Be You". It was all done on a Mac, using only the internal Mac Quicktime Musical Instruments, and the standard "text to speech" system that's included, as an example of what a Mac can do. Oh yeah...Vocals by "Mac-Intosh". Enjoy !
An experimental "chill out" ambient-groove album with some great grooves. Mixed in a continuous play format. If you download these, keep them in this order, and put "no space" between tracks, for the original playback design !
Singles, including: Boogie Down Bronx, Hip Hop Be Bop (original), several interesting re-mixes of Hip Hop Be Bop and rare electro-freestyle singles released in the late 1980's. Also includes mixes of the (2003) remake of Gary Neuman's "Cars".
Klaus Nomi was a close friend of Man Parrish. Man collaborated on several tracks, ranging from full song productions to synth sound design, production overdubs and live show support. Klaus also appeared on Man Parrish's first album (1984) song "Six Simple Synthesizers" listed above... "We miss you KLAUS ! "
AMBIENT MUSIC FOR SLEEP (2003) Wanna chill out ? Wanna "de-stress" ? Here's some soothing ambient tracks designed especially to be "background music" and played while relaxing, working, or even sleeping. Both tracks can be played separately or looped in your media player for continious hours of play. We leave it playing in the background, for days at a time. Hmmmmm...nice ! PLEASE NOTE: These are large files (1 hour and also 1/2 hour in length) and are several megs in size. A high speed connection is recommended (but not necessary) for download.
Beautiful ambient versions of well known classical music, designed to make you relax. You may not recognize the names, but you probably have heard these masterpieces before. They are composed with "Dreamlike" sounds and tempos to help relax the mind.
Kasa Casio called and asked if Man would do a "nasty" voice overdub on a track called Motorbike. Man Parrish is a motorcycle lover and owner, and gladly showed up for the vocal session. You should have seen their faces, as Man "let the filth flow" on this trashy, erotic fantasy, electro track about hot sex on a motorcycle !
