I don't know how to describe myself. It would be best if you just listened to a couple of tracks:
Check out Arabian, and Behind the Waterfall below.
I'm just looking for another person (any instrument) who's into live looping and has access to a Digitech Jamman Solo XT or Express XT looper. (this will allow us to keep our loops in sync, using the "JamSync" feature).

Right now I'm really into Post Rock instrumental guitar music, and that's where I'd like most of the focus to be: If These Trees Could Talk, Russian Circles, Pelican, Magna Carta Cartel...
My favorite band of all time is King Crimson, and most of my music collection is Progressive Rock. To be honest, I probably don't have the chops to play stuff like this, but I'd love to incorporate some of the favors of Prog/Metal. King Crimson, Porcupine Tree, early Yes, Pink Floyd, Mike Oldfield, Arthur Brown, Leprous, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Secret Chiefs 3...
Another genre I really love and would like to incorporate is 70s German Krautrock (Kosmische musik): Can, Neu!, Kraftwerk...
I also love 50's surf instrumental music: The Ventures, The Shadows, Link Wray...
Ambient is another flavor: Brian Eno, Robert Fripp (Frippertronics, Soundscapes), David Torn
Experimental/Jazz: Hedvig Mollestad Trio, Eivind Aarset, John Zorn, Sonar
I grew up in 80's listening to a wide variety of things, from hardcore punk to shoegaze: Black Flag, The Dead Kennedys, Bauhaus, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Cure, Black Sabbath, early Metalica, The Smiths, Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain....

The Traveling Song
The Traveling SongFinal mixed version of the piece. This will appear on my upcoming orchestral album. Double-bass, Cello, Violin, Viola, Flute, Oboe, English Horn, and Trumpet Lyrics (sing along if you like): The Traveling Song Chorus: I am a gypsy, I am a gypsy Nobody gets me, nobody gets me I am a gypsy, I am a gypsy No one knows me 'Cause I am a gypsy I live to see the water flowing from the shining river to the silver ocean I'm still searching for something to know beyond the sky above me or the earth below me (chorus) From the snowy mountaintops and through the forest 'Cross the burning desert I must follow my bliss I guess that I'm still hoping for someone to hold me but my nature's telling me I must be going No one to touch me No one to miss me No one to crush me No one to lift me (chorus)
DesolationReality is just a thin sheet of film, and when you peel it away, there is nothing at all.

Shadowlands ExcerptExcerpt from a piece in progress. It's about an entity that many people see when they experience sleep paralysis--the Shadow Man. Basically the Shadow Man walks the earth and observes, but can't interact with anything. At night he will sometimes see a human who leaves their body while asleep, astral projecting. He attempts to take the body left behind as his own.
