I've been a musician for 27
years. My main instrument is the guitar, both electric and
acoustic as well as guitar synthesizer which means i can play
virtually any instrument known to man. I also can play
keyboards as well as bass, harmonica,
mandolin, ukulele, tenor and soprano guitar, and other
stringed instruments. I've played literally all styles form jazz to
punk to blues. I've recorded over forty 90 minute cassettes
and 20 full length CD's of my own music in my home studio over
the past 25 years. I have recorded several different styles of music
this way including fusion, rock, reggae, metal, electronic, jazz
I have over 40 full length recordings of various styles, 99% of which are instrumentals.
"1995" - rock/metal/experimental
Heavily influenced by Sonic Youth and Band of Susans, this CD is a sonic overload of feedback, overtones, resonation and other living sounds created by guitars and amplifiers cranked up too loud. Most of these songs were recorded with a single mic about 4 inches from a 1948 tube amp with massive baffling to keep the sound from disturbing my neighbor in the next room. Most of teh drums were recorded by hand by tapping the drum pads on my trusty Alesis HR 16 drum machine. This was a tediouos operation because each drum had to be recorded separately on each track of my Fostex analog 8 track tape machine. I fully intended to flesh out this one to a ful 90 minutes like allof my cassettes but I only finished one side.
