I am an Electronic musician that composes using ONLY hardware. There are NO computers employed in any of my creations and I will keep it that way! The majority of my songs tend to have an industrial edge to them, but I tend to stray from that quite frequently. My MAIN tool is the Kurzweil K2600X. She is the Brain of my studio. She tells everything to do what I tell her to tell them! The majority of these songs are exclusively her. She at times has "lurching" issues but that's just MY lazy fault for not cleaning out useless data, so some of the transitions between parts are not as smooth as they should be! I rarely use drum loops, but I do play the loops as an instrument. I am big into introductions and my Favorite part of my songs are the Bridges. The Majority of these songs are instrumentals because they are not finished! I would sincerely appreciate any comments and criticisms. That's how we become better! My writing style sometimes takes time for the song to get going! I try to convey a feeling or almost an emotional journey in each composition, sort of a "journey" through my head!
NO COMPUTERS WERE INVOLVED AT ANY TIME DURING THE WRITING, RECORDING AND PRODUCTION OF ANY OF THESE SONGS!!!! That's why there are many times of imperfection!!! They will be fixed! ;)
I actually played out once as this band and it happened to be at the Al Rosa Villa. Yes the same place Dime Bag Darrel Lost his life!! RIP
