I'm really a good man in spite of the the name. I do my best to honor my commitments, I do my best to honor other people. I make up stories about them so I don't get mad at them for acting as inconsiderate as they do. More often than not, I'm wrong about things, but in the long run seem to make decent decisions.
Jazz, Blues, Rock, Electronics. It's all good to me. Sax and guitar, that's great to me.
Logic Pro, Selmer, Neumann, Cascade, MacBook Pro, Albleton Live, Alesis, M Audio, Shure, Fender, Yamaha, Digital Performer, Korg, all tools I use. It's about organizing sounds, seeing how they fit or don't fit together, not so much writing in a style. Many of my ideas come from things that happen accidentally, not things I am trying to accomplish. I'm often surprised by who people say I sound like. Air, Pixies, St Germain I like them but don't know much about them. Massive Attack. Leon Russell, Mr. T, Bird, Pink Floyd, Zappa. I like Listening to Shinichi Osawa's music also.
I have alsways had a problem playing "what people want to hear". I've always had problems copping a style. Play like so and so. There are sounds in my head from people I played with and music I've listened to and I hear that blending together somehow. The challenge is to use the technology to bring them together. Much like learning to improvise and speaking. Get what's in my head out into the world.
I've always admired acts for their professionalism. However, I'm no actor. This is genuine. I like to be entertained by professional entertainers, but I wold rather hear something genuine. It's difficult for me to go see bands because I have a hard time hearing, I want to play.
