The here and now... and what and why

Complacency is a trap. At least that’s what I was thinking when I up and left the comfort of a Yankee prep school gig, where I taught music, amongst other things, for 28 years. There was also that life long career as a composer, musician and artist.

First, it was a year in St. Thomas, USVI, working as a reporter and shooting photography and then, a year in San Agustin Etla, Oaxaca, Mexico.
Time passed.
More time passed and a year back in the Athens of America followed by a hasty return to Oaxaca where it is all happening.
A couple of years in San Sebastian Etla and now, just down the road in San Pablo Etla. Life is good.

You can find my music on Jango (World & latin - Worldbeat) and at iTunes and most online stores.

Make your own music......

One of the reasons I am the way I am is that very early in my life I spent four years alone with a large Moog synthesizer. 
I suppose that explains quite a bit.... then for a graduation gift my parents gave me an EMS Synthi, the same machine used by Pink Floyd and Brian Eno.
What's more, I'm probably the only person in the world with two of these amazing machines.  So needless to say, I love me some weird sounds.  Oh, and I played with a theremin with its classic outer space movie sounds...... and now, so can you.  Go crazy.
