Biography

Hello,

My Name is Bob and I live in Cranston, Rhode Island. Apparently it has been 10 years since I first started to post music on Icompositions. My style has changed and morphed over the years. Looking back at some of the earlier material I had posted, I was struggling to find my sound. Alot of this old material makes me cringe! I have learned so much more musically and became much better at production. Many guitars have come and gone. As of now my guitars are 2 Gibson Les Pauls and 2 Telecasters. Also nylon string and steel string acoustics. Not to mention MIDI gear. My favorite music is modal jazz. I don't normally listen to anything mainstream, although many of the tunes below are just that. I did some collaborations with my Wife a while back, but we don't record anymore. We do have friends over to our home jam sessions and I will post a few songs from those sessions later on. Recently I have been working on some thematic stuff or "cue music" using modes of Harmonic Minor. I got into modes a few years ago and it opened up doors to much creativity. So the main focus on alot of my current music emphasizes the flavors of the modes. I will try to post more music on here if it interests anybody.

Note: I have done many collaborations with Nancy, my wife and you can listen to the tunes by visiting her website. Click the Shortstuff link below.
