Archive Project

In the coming months and perhaps years, I wish to take you on a journey through the past - my musical past to be exact. Though this idea had been brewing in my head for quite some time, the pandemic served as a catalyst, giving me cause to reflect deeply on my life (as it undoubtedly has done for countless others), affording me time to rummage through hours upon hours of cassette tapes, DATS, MP3s, WAVs and what have you, and providing the impetus to create an archive of my music, a depository of recordings chronicling my sonic activities over the past few decades. From my early attempts at multi-track recording on a TEAC Portastudio to state of art studio recordings, the archive will hopefully give you a look at my musical odyssey from a rock drummer to percussionist, improvisor, soundartist and now even a singer songwriter. My early roots in rockn’roll and the blues are sadly absent but my penchant for progrock, world music and experimental music should be well represented. I shied away from live material for the most part, relying instead on my recorded output from the aforementioned home and studio sessions. Due credit was given wherever possible but some of the information may be wrong or altogether missing. It would please me to no end if anyone could enlighten me on any of the erroneous or deficient data.

My archive will live on my Bandcamp page:
