I'm currently looking for a 2nd music project. I very much enjoy being in a band, collaborating with others, the dual intentional and accidental nature of creating music, letting the best versions of songs emerge over time and playing live - getting people to move and feel. I tend to write stark, subversive, abstract, hopeful songs about the human condition, expansion of consciousness, eastern and western esotericism, existential and transpersonal psychology, quantum physics, altered states/hallucinogenic experiences, love and attachment, the paranormal, aliens, media, society, religion, technology, immortality, sexual polarity, cannibalism, exploitation, suicide clusters, ambivalence......

Here's samples of what I've been doing with my current project - first two are acoustic.

I'm located in Santa Cruz mtns but will travel as far as SF or monterey. I'm interested in taking on any of the following projects if the chemistry is there:

1.Joining/forming a band that does original material - preferably something heavy along the lines of early tool and deftones with a strong electronic/industrial component, but I'm open to other styles and genres if the song writing is there. I'm getting decent at writing lyrics, creating vocal melodies and counter melodies, singing and yelling with and without effects as well as using my voice like a synth. More recently, I've been collaborating with a female vocalist and would be down for more of that. I use a TC helicon voicelive play and a digitech jamman. If you have the right type of guitar, bass or synth riffs or completed songs that can serve as a canvas and/or be built upon, that would work. I'd be down to jam, record, gig, hang, exchange ideas.....

2. Record a cover version of the song "Triad" but with original lyrics - sample attached. I've got access to a studio in san jose and will cover production costs if need be

3.Although I'd much prefer doing original material, I'd be open to doing certain covers and gigging

4. Working remotely on projects

5. Collaborating to create music for indie film projects with the right artistic and aesthetic vibe

HMU with samples if you are interested. Also, lyrics are available to any of these songs upon request....
