Polaris is a New Age/Classical project featuring music created exclusively on my computer. I use sequencing software and virtual instruments to realize the music I hear in my head.
Why this name?
No particular reason - sounded good at the time. The truth is, I saw the word Polaris on a tire in the parking lot at work. Really!
Do you play live?
No. But I would like to be in a band again someday.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It allows marginally talented guys like me to get my music heard by someone other than my friends & family.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I would be interested in contributing to film soundtracks & scores, but I am not interested in getting signed.
I took piano lessons for a short time many years ago. I was never good at practicing so I don't play very well. However, I can hear music in my head & seem to have a knack for melody & harmony. The computer has allowed me to realize these songs & bring them to life.
Primarily Progressive Rock. I don't usually listen to Classical music so I'm not sure where this stuff is coming from.
anywhere with a waterfall, or a baseball game.

If you don't like it, please take the time to tell me why. I automatically reject any opinions about my music that does not include a why.
