Matt's Music Page

matthew's picture

I created this Music page in hopes that it will help visitors find the music I've recorded without having to wade through years of weblog entries. You should be able to reach it through the "music" link permanently anchored now at the top of all barnson.org pages. Enjoy!

Here you'll find links to all the songs on this site, along with their stories:

  • Together Again For The First Time, in addition to containing links to high-quality MP3s of all the tunes from the first of three albums released by Wayward Sun, also contains some remeniscing and discussion from the band members.
  • The Right Of Way was Wayward Sun's second effort. Many long weekends were spent in the upstairs spare bedroom of the Schuman home making this one happen. Unfortunately, time and use taken their toll on the source tapes; if I find cleaner copies, I'll be posting them here.
  • One Man is a remake of a tune from The Right Of Way that is going on Matt's 2003/2004 album.
  • Letter From My Lady I wrote for my wife, Christy while I was living in Los Angeles on a mission for the LDS Church.
  • For Jenny, For Josh is a piano solo I've often thought of giving words, but for today the music must suffice.
  • The Floogie was, erm, an experimental tune by Ben Schuman. And, before you ask, "no, nobody knows how to do the Floogie". This page also features a very, very early version of the Wayward Sun theme song, done while we were still learning the 6-track recorder.
  • Ben Schuman posted three albums worth ofvintage Wayward Sun material, including an unreleased album, a whole live concert, and "No Further Questions" -- sans two stinker tunes few people liked :)
  • Ben shipped us more vintage Wayward Sun; these are all live recordings in various venues from pre-college WS. Enjoy!
  • Prayer is a tune I wrote at some point between 1992 and 1994. I'd discovered, even then, that a road to personal spirituality isn't paved with obedience to church authority, and had purchased a guitar in violation of mission rules so that I could write this song. As with most of the tunes on this page, it's a rough draft for my CD... whenever I get around to releasing it.
  • The Void War Soundtrack was written by me for the video game "Void War" in the summer of 2004.

That's it for now. Please leave comments below on what you think of this collection of tunes.

As always, please remember that I do own (or share ownership in) the copyright on all these tunes. You're free to copy them, but if you put them anywhere else I require attribution to this web site. Thanks.

One man: Is it still the half finished version, or does it incorporate any of the new vocals?

Wayward Sun: I am looking for my "Right of Way" tape, and I may try to do the same things to that I did to TAFTFT, I also have No Further ? on my computer in MP3 format if you want, although you weren't on that album. I could send you "All Over Again" at least. While we're at it, I could MP3 Holdin' Hearts as well.

Album: Waiting with baited breath. If anyone else is reading this, I have listened to, helped cowrite, or edited lyrics on quite a few of the tracks.. and let me assure you, Matt has come up with some really really good stuff.

Music pages: Oh, and check out www.timpane.com/music for MP3s of my last album, READMISSION (shameless plug).

Wish list: I know Kevin is out protecting our freedom, but what about a Matt, Ben, Sam song.. an "almost Wayward" tune. Kelly's SOng Remixed. Matt rapping, Yo. And what about a showoff guitar song.. a la Top Gun Theme.

Does this mean I can listen to more than just my old worn out copy of No Further Questions?

Thanks, I really appreciate

Thanks, I really appreciate what you did here, there are many fans that think likewise. I specially like the additional informations about artist and their work, this is just what I was looking for. One more think, do you have concert tickets topics around here, it would sure help a lot.

EDIT by matthew: Hey, spammer, nice try for a Google-bomb. I'm going to leave this up as an example of what NOT to do around here. Learn English, make your reply on-target, and maybe your spammish links might not be yanked immediately.

A bunch of song links were broken by my latest upgrade; I think I've fixed them all now.

Hey, new user here. I was going through the music links and none of them seem to be working. Just thought I'd let you know.
