Why this name?
I was born with this name!
Do you play live?
Not often. Thinking of the possibility of creating some live shows involving lights and special environments...a total sensory experiment. Who knows?
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Wow! Being able to share your music for the entire world! Now that's great.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I have been composing experimental music since the early 80's. As a studio musician, I have been utilized as a vocalist, keyboardist, and bass player on many other people's recording projects, commercials and whatnot.
I have been greatly influenced by Peter Gabriel, Brian Eno, Thomas Dolby, Harold Budd, Kate Bush and the like.
The Cayman Islands...so far.
