I started with electronic composition in 1981 when I attended the Crane School of Music. I was a performance major on trombone, and took an elective called, "Electronic Music Lab." Back then, New England Digital had just introduced the Synclavier II. It was hooked to an Apple II computer that could print notation on a staff, but couldn't do much else. We laid tracks on reel to reel using this instrument and a few plug and patch analog synthesizers. Let me tell you, it was a lot of work! There were very few examples back then that are anything like what can be created today on software such as Garage Band. Electronic music, as it was known then, consisted primarily of beeps, blips, and static, and it wasn't very inspiring to me. I always wanted to reproduce the kinds of tunes I heard on the radio. Unfortunately, I was very short sighted with regard to where the technology would go, and so I sort of moved on to other pursuits. I left music (and music school) altogether and became an actor where I achieved modest success for a time. My Artist Icon is actually a photo of me off a poster from a sci-fi interactive (Virtual Cinema) movie on CD-ROM called Quantum Gate, from Hyperole Studios. The movie is the legitimate forerunner for all first person adventure games using live action - I believe it's a collectors item now.

Thanks to the evolution of personal home computing and the development of accompanying software such as Garageband, Reason, and so forth, composing studio quality works has now become a reality. The democratization of music composition has finally made what I longed to acheive so many years ago a possibility, and I am eternally grateful to the engineers and web developers whose efforts have brought so much joy back into my life. Thank you icomp, and thank you to all those members whose comments help me to continually improve!
