ABOUT

Drummer seeking band/other musicians for new project. Looking to explore paths less traveled. Improv, polyrhythm and a general sense of oddity are crucial.

Past projects:
- Acid-jazz fractures of music by Yes & King Crimson.
- Warped interpretations of more familiar material.
- Excursions with ex-members of the League of Crafty Guitarists.
- Multi-drum/percussion experiments.
- Free-form, soundscapes, atmospherics.
