Welcome to my site! I am a guitarist/keyboardist/drummer/composer who creates experimental and cinematic music. Many of my compositions are what I call "musical gates" or works which feature a strong sense of passing into a mysterious, transcendent, and, sometimes, terrifying musical world of suspension. I tend to create (1) experimental world music that is piano based and which synthesizes Western ideas of harmony and song structure with Chinese and Japanese instruments and aesthetics; and (2) experimental musical science fiction which is guitar based and uses electronic and synthesized sounds. Stargates is my first exploration of musical sci-fi; my other five albums are experimental world music. Enjoy!
