My normal gig is as an acoustic songwriter/guitarist. I also have an improvised electric guitar experiment with loop pedals, ebow and multi-stage delays, which I call Breaking Light. At this site I hope to explore different methods of music creation and avoid my normal music making processes.

I've put some IF favorites of mine on my Soundcloud page:

Not Enough Bullets

RPM Challenge IF mash album - permission please?

Folks

As I've done for the past four years, I'll be participating again with one or two album projects for the month of February. In addition to those (!)

On the Edge

Seen this?

 

"In the lack of indigenous music, [the record store is] where [people] find their roots. And in music, whatever you're looking for — whether it's authenticity, or originality, or transcendentalism, or traditionalism — the best place to look is in a record store. But you won't find — or you'll rarely find — mention of improvisation. It's not a term which has become part of the record industry's promotional vocabulary."  -Derek Bailey
