ABOUT

** Visit hexbass(period)com - Five EPs and a full-length album available for FREE download or streaming. **

My music is experimental, avant-garde...maybe ridiculously weird depending on who's listening. I have no interest in making music that's appealing to mainstream audiences.

** LOOKING FOR TRAINED VOCALISTS: Mezzo-Soprano, Tenor, Baritone, Bass.
- Also: sax, trumpet, clarinet and/or flute = MUST be familiar with avant-garde jazz.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

VOICE OF THE VORTEX:
Experimental metal/funk/latin/classical WITHOUT GUITAR.
**Currently recording an EP of experimental/classical music.**
LOOKING FOR A SPONSOR to help complete the recording.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
COGNITION THROUGH CHAOS
Avant-garde improvisation.
------------------------------------------------

AnnihilAria - New project coming out in 2017...hopefully.

Concepts that so far have been separate, will be fused into a mad, yet beautiful amalgam.

Under instruments, there's no recorder option, so I selected flute instead.

Influences

I'm into jazz (especially the avant-garde), funk, latin, classical, metal (especially the more extreme subgenres: death, doom, black, experimental), blues, avant/prog rock, some African and Middle Eastern music, reggae, opera, medieval chant, some punk and alternative...
** I'm NOT into 99% of newer artists (those that have come out since 1997 approx.). I don't like anything that's played on mainstream/commercial radio. **
