I started out playing in the high-school band playing the sousaphone. A couple of years lugging that thing around got old so I took up bass guitar and started a high school band. We started out playing top-40 covers but eventually switched to more progressive rock. It was the 70s after all and the only other alternative was Disco. A couple of years of playing clubs was fun but, of course, life responsibilities got in the way of that. Sold all my gear and focused on computer programming. Time went by and I missed playing music. About this time PCs came to be and software for music composition started appearing so I purchased a music based PC and Cakewalk music software. I stayed on that platform for about a decade. Moving away from Philadelphia to North Carolina found me in another series of bands playing bass again but I still worked on my own compositions. I also wound up building a recording studio in a detached garage on our property. I've recently upgraded to a dedicated music laptop with Acid Pro and Sound Forge as my software tools of choice. I like a broad sweep of genres from singer songwriter to Ambient and progressive instrumental music. I also enjoy Jazz Fusion and some blues. I don't really have favorites but if I must pin down a few there is Vangelis, Andreas Vollenweider, Jean Luc Ponty, Return to Forever and all the solo work the members of that band have done. I like Kate Bush, David Sylvian as singers. I enjoy the music of Bill Nelson, Robert Fripp, Eno and well, you get the idea, the list could go on and on.
