My Bands


Comments

Yo man, my computer got stolen, so all that material got lost, along with a lot of my other material that I had been keeping. We'll get a killer jam recorded next time though.

Hey Zack, sounds good let me know when you are up and running... Im from Boston. Never done any of this online music stuff, sounds pretty straight forward though. Do you have much experience with this stuff?

Background

A somewhat interesting tale tells of my musical embrace. I have heard the sounds of my father's piano since before I was born. My first instrument was the block flute recorder that I learned in Catholic School. Waldorf was made manifest and I continued recorder until the class of 06 at Emerson came into being and then I immersed myself in hand percussion of all sorts. From there, I began my love affair with the piano that I have been savoring for four years now. At the same time, I was learning the Pentatonic Flute and dabbling in Guitar and Eukele. Oh, throw a harmonica and accordian in there somewhere. I am pretty much open to the gift of sound.

Influences

Initially, my music of choice for a long time was anything in the Classical genre, spanning Von Bingen to Reich. Messiaen, Bartok, Riley, Glass, Cage, Bach and Mozart among absolute favorites. I have huge soft spots for the romantics as well; Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Schubert, Schumann and Tchaikovsky all help my heart to sing. My mind has integrated other flavors and has experimented with the sweet to the absolutely absurd throughout my development as a musician and composer.

Gear

Any Piano will do, each one has a unique presence and capability. I just got a synthesizer from a friend and am really looking forward to using it. I have a wonderful Pentatonic flute as well.
