music

 

i love music and have been playing my whole life.

i have studied piano and percussion with great teachers and played with many great musicians. singing songs when i wake up in the morning is a daily practice, as is playing, improvising, and listening. crafting songs is a great time and i continue to improve my recordings. i make original music in various styles of improvisation, rock, noise, rap, experimental, and even pop. in 1998 i started the insides music record label as a way to release my own music to the public. the label has become a strong collection of music from many corners of sound. it's no surprise that i listen to many different eras and styles of music, but what moves me most is what strikes my heart and mind. the strange and captivating, the heavy, the humor, the frightening.

below you will find links to various ensembles, solo projects, written compositions, recordings, and music exhibitions.
