I am a solo artist with formal training and a B.A. in music. As I evolve, so does my music. You may find that my pieces are inconsistent with any particular style. I am not exactly certain what the true nature of my music is. I appreciate a broad spectrum of different styles, but most of what I listen to is EDM and hip-hop.
When I went to college, a friend of mine introduced me to FruityLoops. I played around with it for a couple years and made a few loop-based pieces. I was delighted. Later on, another friend of mine introduced me to Reason. It took awhile to learn, but after buying the program, I am very happy with it. Writing electronica has been a lot of fun and Reason facilitates that very well.
I do not perform my electronica live. However, I am a fairly skilled pianist and will play when the time and place are right. I have performed on a number of occasions as a part of local events and happenings.
REAL artists. When I say "real," I mean that music is such a part of their lives and their souls that it is something they just do, very naturally. They are not driven by money or fame, but by this profound need inside of them to create music and express themselves artistically. I can tell by listening to a piece what went into it, and I get as much out of it. These are the artists I seek to emulate.
MacBook Pro with internal SSD, MOX-8, Reason, Mackie 1402-VLZ3 mixing board, 7-port USB hub, 2 Korg Electribes, 1 TB external hard drive, and, occasionally, my fingers.
The pieces I have uploaded to this site are of much lesser quality than what I am currently writing. Because I am in the process of creating a professional album, I cannot upload anything current at this time. I will see where this work gets me. If all goes well, I will have them uploaded to online music distribution businesses and sites, such as iTunes and Amazon. I will be sure to come back and post a link here. If, at that time, you like what you hear and are interested in a collaboration, please contact me.
