SEEKINGRhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums.
Bassist for LordRifa.
Band leader for Society (looking for guitarist and drummer)
I played in a community band from the age of 13 - 19. The symphonic band's repertoire was immense and diverse in genre. Rock, jazz, concertos, movie score, orchestral pieces that had been arranged for a symphonic band, and many others.
During high school I arranged two pieces for Symphonic band, "Dovahkiin" - Jeremy Soule, "Supremacy" - MUSE. Here is the name of the video to search for the performance of "Dovahkiin" on You Tube. [Song starts at 6:00 minutes] I played the Alto Saxophone for this song. The nerdy kid with glasses and what looks like a bowl cut... Times have changed, haha.
( Roseville High School - Joint middle school concert )
I learned the song by ear with an acoustic guitar and wrote out the notation in Finale 2012.
At the age of 16 I joined a semi-professional jazz orchestra called Moonlight Swing, a Glenn Miller tribute band. I played the baritone sax chair, which required me to play both lead and support alto sax, and lead and support clarinet. "Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue."
After moving from Sacramento to the Bay Area, I left Moonlight Swing and temporarily joined the San Jose Metropolitan Band on clarinet, playing third chair. At the time I had a conflicting schedule with a job, which is why I had to leave the band so soon, but that is no longer an issue.

The WalkWe all fight battles that nobody can see. The war within can be brutal and unrelenting. It can make us feel doomed. This is my first release off my upcoming album titled "Doomed." The story of an internal struggle.

Leave Out All The Rest - Linkin Park(Lead,Rhythm,BassCover)
Leave Out All The Rest - Linkin Park(Lead,Rhythm,BassCover)Chester Bennington and Linkin Park were a big inspiration in my younger years. They helped me through a lot of bullshit and teenage drama. Without them, I would not be who I am. R.I.P. Chester Bennington.
Let Yourself Go - CDOPE
Let Yourself Go - CDOPEThis track is a funk track with a big influence from "People Get Up and Drive Your Funky Soul" - James Brown. I've been listening to a lot of funk lately and started experimenting with the vocoder. Enjoy! Lyrics: Loosen up, Give your heart to the pulse, Of the kick, Quick grab your slapstick, Let yourself go, Make your body lose control, Feel the pounding of the drum, For this once, you can be dumb, Feel it deep inside, Moving and flowing, Nothing can ever stop this, Our faces should always be glowing, Loosen up, Give your heart to the pulse, Of the kick, Quick go grab you slapstick, Let Yourself Go, Make your body lose control, Feel the pounding of the drum, For this once, you can be dumb,
Mayday!!! - Flobots (Vocal,Sax,Clarinet,Guitar,BassCover)
Mayday!!! - Flobots (Vocal,Sax,Clarinet,Guitar,BassCover)This is "Mayday!!!" I chose to cover this songs because people need to get serious and research what is going on in the world. We need to unite and resist.

Trumpanzee - YoungData & CDOPE
Trumpanzee - YoungData & CDOPEI had to write a rap about the #Trumpanzee. He's destroying everything he wants. He doesn't give a shit. We need to step up and push back, Push him OUT. This track is piled with effects, deal with it. Do you dig this beat? Check out the original here. (https://soundcloud.com/user-592148912/133-m) Lyrics: Trumpanzee You think you're hot shit, Thinkin you're above the pit, Of hopelessness that was created, To leave us minorities isolated, Ha, bullshit, You're just a different kind of filth, Choking on your own words, All you do is spilth, You rhetorical propaganda, Tryin to put us in a different class, Bitch, I'm goin ShakeSpeare on your ass, Shit, your thumbs, Are in better shape than you, Are you really that fuckin dumb? I guess health is not number one, Oh fuck, that's right, You took that shit away from the bright, Shining faces of America's children and elderly, Now tell me, why the fuck is that necessary? Let me guess, You're just tryin'ta fill your pockets, Instead of funding rockets, For human technological advancement, We could be so much more than you bullshit financement, Pardon my French Trumpanzee, Soon we're gonna be jumpin on ya like a trampoline, You're done, 1, 2, 3, You're a dipshit it's plain to see, Better step aside, The people are rising, They aren't gonna listen to your ignorant whining, So get to it, start packing your shit, The fire inside has been lit.
Just The Tips - CDOPE
Just The Tips - CDOPEI had recently restrung all my guitars and was about to play, when I noticed a sound that was bugging me. The tips of my guitar were scratching on my Mic, making a "wooshing" noise. I had to do something with it, and here it is.
Maksiri (Life) - CDOPE
Maksiri (Life) - CDOPEI performed this song to celebrate life, and the continuity of everything that is. A perfect circle, if you will. To connect with my ancestors and inner-self. Enjoy, and I hope this lifts you to new heights, as it has for me.
No Lives Matter - Body Count (Lead,Rhythm,BassCover)
No Lives Matter - Body Count (Lead,Rhythm,BassCover)This is a cover of Body Count's - "No Lives Matter" I chose this #song for #obvious reasons. We need to all #unite and #overthrow our #oppressors. #Together we can build a #great tomorrow, a #peaceful tomorrow. A tomorrow where #everybody is #living in #harmony.
Bombtrack - Rage Against the Machine (Lead,Rhythm,BassCover)
Bombtrack - Rage Against the Machine (Lead,Rhythm,BassCover)This is what we need right now. Stand up and resist the oppressors of a free and equal world. Unite, and together we can tilt the box they keep the rest of us in. A few of us have managed to get out of the box, now it's our job to liberate the rest of them who haven't had the fortune of tasting fresh air and what real, creative, freedom is.
Cave - CDOPE
Cave - CDOPEI performed this song with three things. A single drone note of a synth on a C natural. The rest was with a microphone, a delay pedal, and the noises I could make naturally with my body or by banging on random shit. This is the child of randomness.
Trance - CDOPE
Trance - CDOPEThis track sort of just happened while I was recording my next cover, that is to be released soon. It's sort of catatonic and I'm not really sure how to describe it. I guess you could say it's freedom; creativity with no limits.
Outshined - Soundgarden (Lead,Rhythm,BassGuitarCover)
Outshined - Soundgarden (Lead,Rhythm,BassGuitarCover)A tribute to Chris Cornell and his great music. Sadly, I took his music for granted and found myself really digging in recently, but appreciated it none the less. Rest well in the cosmos. My first cover to be uploaded to my SoundClound profile. Many more are to come.
