SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Back in the day (aka the 90's), I played drums and percussion with different bands/projects in the DC/MD/VA area (mostly within the world of jazz/fusion/post-rock, hip-hop and art rock/punk...some of it quite aggressive). While focusing on theatre/film and "semi-public performance art" the last 10-12 years (first in Baltimore, then Chicago, now NYC), spent much less time in bands or behind a drum kit and more time playing hand percussion, incorporating non-traditional uses of percussion in different settings with found-sound improvisation; also, using acoustic percussion in electronica or to build rhythm tracks for sample-based music.

Influences

My taste in music is all over the map (literally & figuratively) as are my influences. As a really quick shorthand to music I'd like to make...if I had a project cooking right now, it would owe a debt to all of the following:

This Heat, Swans, Can, Miles Davis (circa 1969-1975), Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Cocteau Twins, Massive Attack, My Bloody Valentine, King Crimson (especially "Larks' Tongues in Aspic").
