Retired game and Internet entrepreneur looking for a challenging group of musicians to record vocal-oriented jazz-rock, electronica, and progressive music (both cover and original). All of the songs on my profile (except the original Social Control) are performed and recorded multitrack by myself using only a Yamaha Motif ES8 and a Sennheiser microphone, but I would prefer to have real musicians and instruments wherever possible.
I am also a music theorist who writes books on harmonic science and psychoacoustics, ancient history, and science futurism, so like to explore unusual musical concepts, soundscapes, and composition techniques.
