"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dreams"
Arthur O'Shaughnessy and Willy Wonka
I make hybrid electronic music using an arsenal of software and hardware tools, including analog electronic gear. I love creating an environment with sound through which the listener can journey. Making this a worthwhile journey for the listener is one of my main goals.
Below you will find my original tracks, live sets and remixes, as well as samples of the beginnings of my journey through the sonic landscape. I've been recording music since 1984 and if you are interested in hearing my 30 year old experiments, they are at the bottom of this page under 4 Track Attack.
Throughout many years of performing both solo and in bands, I've realized the importance and potential of visual imagery during a live show. Having gained experience from partnering in the visuals support for Meat Beat Manifesto’s 1996 east coast tour, the power of interactive, projected visuals became evident. I've since produced numerous shows where music and visuals were intimately linked and my live sets for the Burner's Without Borders' Black Rock Equinox 9 featured a sequenced LED/video projection mapped component.
These represent a very small sampling of original compositions that I have released. They are usually a hybrid of several styles since I like stirring up the sonic cauldron. I'm very interested in sonic texture and the interplay of the sonic with the visual.
My love of music production doesn't end in the studio. Live performances are very important as well, since the whole point of making the music is to share it with people. Performing electronic music poses challenges both technically and logistically, but I've always found it to be a worthy undertaking. I've played many venues including Germany, Canada and the USA, and have done it solo and within collaborations. I use Ableton Live, various controllers and analog gear and have played stereo as well as surround sound shows. I also perform with synchronized visuals for a more immersive experience.
If you would like to book me to play either a sexy downtempo set or a hybrid of house and tech, please contact me.
I like remixing just as much as I like composing my own music. It's very satisfying taking someone else's colors and painting onto a different surface, That's how I approach remixing. I keep most of the colors within the sonic palette of the original, but I use different brushes and surfaces. Contact me if you would like me to remix one of your tracks.
4-Track Attack - Selected tracks from 1984-1989
This is my music from the 1980s. I used a Fostex X-15 four track tape recorder, a Realistic Moog MG-1 synth from Radio-Shack, a Boss DR-110 Drum Machine and Boss Delay/Sampling pedal as my tools in the mid 80s. My influences were not only the New Wave bands with videos on MTV, but also Industrial, Goth and Experimental Music. Memento Mori was a collaboration with guitarist Danny Stewart. The last time I counted when I still had various 4 track players and cases of 4-track tapes, I had over 800 recordings of my music and collaborations.
