ABOUT

Experimental musician who subscribes to no one particular instrument or style. I'm experienced and trained as a jazz saxophone player, but I love playing rock/free/noise saxophone. I'm also trained in classical voice. I'm literate at guitar, bass, and keys. I'm a music theory dork who loves breaking the rules. Have recently been experimenting with sampling and electronic experimentation, and I would love to try doing some live performance triggering samples. Will join any group with experimental leanings that can share ideas.
