ABOUT

Email me via hexbass(at)musician(dot)org

LOOKING FOR SOMEONE INTERESTED IN JOINING ME AT OPEN MICS TO PLAY *COMPLETELY* IMPROVISED MUSIC. No pre-planning, no songs - just get up there and improvise, engage in a musical dialogue created right there on the spot.
-- I'm basically NOT looking to join any bands long-term, and definitely not cover bands. --

** Visit hexbass(period)com - Nine EPs and 2 full-length albums 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.
------------------------------------------------

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. Ha, ha.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
COGNITION THROUGH CHAOS
Avant-garde improvisation.
------------------------------------------------

AnnihilAria - New project coming out in 2018...hopefully.

A musical amalgam that's virtually unheard of.

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), opera, blues, avant/prog rock, some African and Middle Eastern music, 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. **
