ABOUT

Tracks included are encoded at 320 kbps, so there is some fidelity loss.

I love to write music with piano as my main keyboard/controller. Into DAW production using drum/percussion looping (unless I meet up with someone who really knows how to program) and processing from composition to master (although to get the job done really right it takes $). I mix from organic to processed. Since I can't sing, I use horns, clarinet, etc. sounds for leads.

Looking for vocalist/collaborator/lyricist to penetrate market for indie films or other potential retro-related markets. Material must be kept unencumbered from other licensing or other agreements for single source purposes. I'm not necessarily stuck on old school, but I don't have much interest in today's latest sounds as they currently stand. Independent films, for example, and oddball cue placements allow for more creativity without the Top 40 hustle. Emphasis placed on commercial accessibility to the widest audience without compromising the integrity of compositions.

Alternatively, I'm looking for collaborators for a live sound for performance, with emphasis on collaboration. The best music ever written was composed and produced by more than one person. Good ears are invaluable. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. In other words, let's form a band.

Influences

1970s Elton John (even though I try not to sound like him I still do), and music more on the experimental side, yet still melodic. I''m not a big prog-rock fan or into avant-garde except on occasion. However, I like far more music (especially obscure that no one ever has heard of) than is my style to write/play.

Instrument experience:

Keyboard:
Advanced

EQUIPMENT

Barely enough for home studio if that. I had to get rid of a lot to move to ABQ from CA. As opportunities arise, I can pop for microphones, patch bays, outboard gear, practice amps, etc.
