Welcome to my personal music laboratory.
My new band concept. This is what I'm currently working on, now that I've decided to go full time. There is no particular long term focus here - anything goes. In the short term I'm on a very busy and steep learning curve with my new studio and expanded set of performing instruments.
Organised links to videos on my YouTube channel, which is an historical record of my progress since 2010 and the page also serves as a brief intro to all the aspects of my music.
From around the age of seventeen, my attempts at creating music involved various garage bands. This evolved into Vehicle, a band concept I cooked up when I was twenty. The focus eventually became a core live band with some overdubbing of mostly live tracks and maybe some midi tracks playing back on synthesisers.
Based on the perfect time provided by MIDI tracks when building up pieces in a DAW. The focus being on building up a performance of several midi tracks playing synthesisers and adding some live recorded instrument and voice tracks.
I had a run in with some guy on the Zappa forum a few years back, who is a graduate in piano performance from some fancy music institution in The Netherlands, who referred to me as a dilettante, which means "a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge". This was obviously intended as an insult, while knowing very little about me. This section lists the essential detail of my, mostly self taught, life long pursuit of the composition of music and clarifies my serious level of commitment.
