SEEKINGVocalist - Soprano, Vocalist - Alto.
I am NOT interested in cover bands. If you are incapable of writing original music, I'm not interested. I AM interested in playing in a group setting, without style/genre boundaries. Musicians who understand melody, harmony, rhythm and tone colors and want to create, not just music, but an experience for the listener.
The music I have posted here is NOT what I have in mind. These are rough demos I was working on about 20 years ago and are here so you can satisfy yourself that I can actually play and (to an extent) compose original music.
I can be reached at proletkult_us on yah who email.

Tascam DP-32SD digital recorder. Some mics (Rode, Shure, I think a couple AKGs) I currently run in a three amp set-up, left/center/right, kind of like Brian May, except I run a separate effects loop on the center channel than the L/R channels.
