ABOUT

More of my personal compositions can be found at :///philips-originals/sets with Experimental Works as the main demo and the other set as minor works besides the first song. These show more of my other styles I have incorporated so far like new-age, jazz, heavy metal, hard-rock, classical.

I want to engage music in a very creative, original, versatile, and inventive manner that may hopefully innovate. I take outside-of-the-box approaches even though I have had formal training and education within the field and am quite knowledgeable.

I was in a heavy metal band for over a year and played a couple shows with them as their bassist. They currently go by the name ZAO BOG which currently features the ex-Overkill drummer Mark Achabal and I almost became the bassist for the band De-Lion which had the same producer as System Of A Down/Osbourne but that didn't work out because of circumstantial reasons (both can be found online.)
