About Me

Dateline: Mesopotamia, 3500 B.C. That's when the multi-faceted sounds we call music got its humble beginnings. It seems clappers were sent out the the fields to scare evil spirits away. These clappers started getting into the beat of their duty and, bingo, you got drums. From there, horns, strings, reeds, the whole orchestral gestalt. So, born in staving off death, music continues to nourish us in a variety of forms as different as the colors of the spectrum.

Jeffrey Vlaming, Northern Exposure, Heroes, 1992

From the persistence of noise comes the insistence of rage.
From the emergence of tone comes the divergence of thought.
From the enlightenment of music comes the wisdom of... silence.

Instruments I play

Guitar, Bass, Cello, Violin, Piano/midi, but Drums badly.

lately i have been making some guitar loops for a couple friends and dj's and stuff, and have been really enjoying it.

it's kinda like free practice, it stretches my improvisational skills, it trains my ear, AND, i get to help a new artists.

so, here's the deal, if you would like me to help put some guitar work on your track,

you can contact me
and tell me, what kinda song, what kind of guitar tone you are looking for (links to songs that have guitar in them that resembles the sound in your head help immensely), what key (if there is a key) and BPM. if anything is important, it is the BPM

I cannot promise I will like what I create, or you will like what I create... but hey
