I enjoy playing music, ever since I was a youngster. Below is some videos and audios. My main instrument is guitar, but
I also create compositions using a keyboard synth controller
and various software synth VSTs. I like rock, jazz, and instrumental forms of music.
My musical influences include Allan Holdsworth, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin, Pat
Metheny, Joe Satriani, Brett Garsed, Mike Stern, Weather Report, and many other jazz fusion and classic rock artists.
I like adventurous musical pieces as a whole, so that it convey's a little epic story within the piece.
The David Wallimann 60 second Solo Contest.
I placed in the top 13 , what a humbling experience that was.
The contest (YouTube results) requirement
was to solo against a backing track created by David Wallimann. The backing track
was a ballad instrumental piece. My approach was to keep it slow and melodic without
playing over the top with a lot of speed and flash. Below is my video entry. I didn't think I would even get noticed considering all the great players out there.
» The Key Sphere Part 2 - Electric Guitar, Synth, VSTs
A simple fusion piece I wrote dedicated to our home, planet Earth. I played guitar, the
synth parts and programmed the drums. Allan Holdsworth was my inspiration for this
» The Endurance Suite - Synth and VST instruments
I saw a documentary one day about the daring Antarctic expedition of 1914. I was
immediatly inspired and came up with this composition based on some improvisational ideas
I had on the synth. I wanted the drums to take control so needless to say I made
tons of midi edits for the odd flams and double bass drum accents and such! A labor of love. Pat Metheny was an inspiration for this.
» The Road Revisited - Acoustic Guitar, Djembe, Synth
An acoustic guitar piece I wrote inspired by two great geniuses: Michael Hedges and Ian Anderson. On the road again.
