One guy. Not young. Hair. Eyes. Teeth. Nose. Mouth. Arms, legs, hands, feet. Yes, one of those, and a couple of those, too. Let's see... oh yeah, brain, heart, liver...
Why this name?
My parents did it to me.
Do you play live?
In a band called Rock Bottom in Albuquerque. I am the bottom of Rock Bottom (bass).
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Oh, for a while there may be a way for a few to avoid the industry funnel. It probably won't last long.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Hmmm, okay. First I'll just lose 30 years, get a face lift and a bum job, and acquire a desire to be molded into a plastic doll for a producer who used to rip the heads off his plastic dolls ten years ago in his parents' Connecticut mansion. Where do I sign?
I was born, got a guitar, pissed off my parents and teachers. Managed to stay out of jail and debt in New Mexico. Not with the guitar, though. Out here we have rattlesnakes, scorpions, tarantulas, black widow and brown recluse spiders, hanta virus and bubonic plague-carrying rodents, cougars, bears, wolves, coyotes, javalina, ...and most of that stuff is in the safer areas of the state; the cities are more dangerous. (Y'all come on out!) But I couldn't move anywhere else for long without suffering serious chile withdrawal. Some other NM natives I know have tried it, and they come back all weird, with money and stuff. Not for me.
Organized sound waves which have fascinating timbral qualities, interesting harmonic progression, captivating melodic content, and motivating rhythmic buoyancy. Once in a while lyrical imagery dances playfully or paints tear lines down cheeks or fires old feelings off like they were the new day's joy or pain.
This varies, too. But I'm just not going to tell the world where my favorite spot is. Then they would just all go there and that would screw that up, wouldn't it? ...be like a ride at a theme park.
Apple w/ Logic. Tascam FW something. It varies with the degree of time spent vs. results desired. Now I have been playing with Max/MSP/Jitter and Java just to further make the creative cycle a total solar orbit. Working on interactive music tools and a composition utilizing them for an upcoming multimedia project (music, robotic sculpture, w/ sensor interactivity).
