I am a guitarist who likes to experiment with the sounds a guitar is capable of creating, but within a musical context. I find that I am far more creative when an ingredient in a stew. I enjoy jamming with others in a liquid, flowing way. I guess what I'm looking for, in a nutshell, is a small group of musicians with the same relative mindset as the krautrockers and creators of kosmiche musik of the 70s, using modern gear.
Ideally, you'll have a DIY attitude, a willingness to experiment and the ability to play well with others.

My version of Gary Numan's "Are Friends Electric". Not great, but its mine.

I wrote this for someone I once cared for. Sort of influenced by The Cure.
