I enjoy creating emotive and melodic compositions using extreme extended-range 7, 8, 9 and 10-string electric basses as the principal instruments. From sub-contra to delicate piccolo bass occasionally accompanied by synthesizers or effects and e-percussion to construct instrumental aural landscapes for focused listening or sonic backdrops.
I also perform with local bands playing Blues, Electric Blues, Blues-Rock, Rock, Progressive, Smooth, Americans and whatever the group calls for.
Circa 12/1/2020, I will be updating my Voyage tunes with newly mastered versions and adding new tunes that will be primarily recorded versions of the new songs I have and will perform solo, live.
Thank you to all those who have listened, enjoyed and propelled the tunes to their place in the site statistics.
Playing music is hard-wired into my existence. Whether solo or ensemble. My greatest reward results from the opportunities to have played, are playing or will play with others that create an environment for both "spontaneous combustion" for music and for sustained involvement in ensemble work.
Yes, I enjoy live performances...whether solo or ensemble. I particularly like it when artists can collaborate and create extraordinary emotive pieces.
Too many to list.
