Biography

Some of my earliest memories are of listening to and making music (which is still what I like to do, mostly on the bass). Here are some recorded examples with a few of my own experiments in sound on sound, a wondrous process to me still, since I started with a borrowed cassette 4 track recorder in the '80s . . .

Many thanks to the creators and moderators of iComp for nurturing this community!
