ABOUT

Composer & Artist , I play with inventive diversity on multi stringed and synth implemented guitars in a melodic experimental ; Progressive , Prog/Art Rock , Jazz/Fusion , Electronic , Classical , Rock/Heavy Metal , Horror-Haunt/Fairy Tale Circus ... sort of way. What ever it takes to complete the Puzzle of Composition .

I'm in search of Progressive Musical Scientists (musicians dat is) who have a somewhat similar or complimentary assortment of influences and possess proficient extensive technical & unique character in their playing style for an intended artistic CD and if the stars align a possible fun Special Local / Concert group . Which would be the ultimate pinnacle . I 'm searching for and encourage heartfelt musical collaborations . There will be plenty of room for a provocative improv thinking musician to make their own imaginative mark ... this is not a dictatorship score . After all it's supposed to be fun for all . One for all ... all for one !!!

Just off the top of my head, so many , this can go on for sometime but those are ''some'' of the principal players . Not counting any of the off the wall diddys & newer groups that catch the ear . There's a lot more musical color styling and genres I employ than stated from the palette list but this is more of what is in general .

Really how can you bottle up a summary of a thinking musician's life time of thought candy but still I think one could get some kind of idea to what's swimming in the sonic noggin dream waves ... O and speaking of waves , add to this brief list of merry minstrels , The Ventures , who started it all for me pick'e lil' fingers !
