Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I am a composer/improvisor specializing in experimental and improvised music. I play the shakuhachi, suling, computer, analog synthesizers, and keyboards. I have played extensively in gamelan groups on the west coast. I am deeply ensconced in free improvisation and electronic music since the early 70s. I have a deep interest in microtonality and polymicrotonality, and use many different tuning systems in my current music. I occasionally find my way to building instruments, both acoustic and electronic, and programming computer music applications using Max/MSP/Jitter. I'm interested in collaborative projects with other musicians and artists. Completed albums are at http://joeltaylor.bandcamp.com
