Influences:World Music, Laswell, Eno, Hassel, Miles, Mclaughlin, Coltrane, Rypdal and most ECM. Sheepishly sounding more like Hassel than I like to admit. Drum wise: My teachers Glen Velez, & Pdt. Samir Chatterjee. The music of Colin Walcott (RIP), Trilok Gurtu, Jack DeJohnette, Ronald Shannon Jackson, & Paul Motian. Also, when I was just learnin', Bill Ward (Black Sabbath) & Frank beard (ZZ TOP) both of those guys were funky/jazzy as hell in their early days (before drugs & the music industry turned them into '4 on the Floor' zombies).
Musical Style:as above - improvised, world-music-influenced percussion, electro/acoustic loops - dark, ambient, enviroments
Recordings Available:Daikaijo - 'One Way Ticket' soundtrack funky, Zen jazz quartet ( I play drum set on this)
Janus Vieczore 'Descent' - rhythm-less dark ambient experimental.
Always interested in collaborations with other artists, either live or by tape.
Call or email if you're interested.
