Music

Almost all my music is instrumental and exploratory in some sense, across whatever styles take my interest.  I consider it all autobiography, as the music is inseparable from the life living it.  This archive offers observations of process, creative motivators, intrapersonal mythology and occasional revelation relating to my musical life.  There are  audio samples from each project and links to my Bandcamp site, where all my music is available for purchase.
