Trex stands for Trav's: exercises, experiments, excursions, and extras. It's my solo side project.

The project's goals is to give my dozens of old practice/demo tapes the same treatment as Tripecac. So, I'm giving each song its own mp3, comments, and whatever metadata I can scrounge up. It's complete overkill for "throwaway" recordings, but there are a few gems in here.

The name also means "treks", as in journeys. I recorded many of the songs while travelling. I'd sneak into universities' piano practice rooms or simply sing in the car (or on a hike). Most of the recordings were made with a dictaphone, so the sound quality is pretty crummy. So are most of the songs!

However, there are some cool moments buried in the muck. Once I get a commenting or rating system in place, it'll be easier for us to find them. Until then, you've got to dig for the nice bits.
