My first sound voyages were created in the mid-eighties, after receiving a cassette recorder for a birthday present. Around the turn of the century I compiled some material and made a couple tapes. Eventually I began a few diy record labels in order to release things made by myself and my talented friends. Most of the album packaging on the releases is made from scratch by me, or sometimes the sound artists provide the artwork or even the entire case.
Over the years, my own musical experiments have been put out to the world in various ways.
Take a reverse chronological trip through my released sound portfolio.
Sometimes I make sounds in front of people.
My current “band” is Mustard-In-Law, with Tyler Luetkehans. It is difficult to describe what we do and how we sound, please take a moment to listen to this….
