ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW AND VARIED PLAYING SITUATIONS,
ANYWHERE and EVERYWHERE. AVAILABLE FOR GIGS.
Musician, Composer, Artist, Writer, Thinker and Music Label
I am a trumpet player, guitarist, keyboardist and play a variety of other instruments including laptop and iPod. All my works are original. Most of my work is new. My primary projects are Blast Radius, a loud freeform music journey; my solo keyboard explorations; and Resonator, a solo pro/post-metal project. I am also a member of the PEK's Evil Clown collective. playing in the Leap of Faith Orchestra, various incarnations of Leap of Faith, Turbulence and Mekaniks. Also currently a member of the trio Neksys with Eric Zinman and Mike McCaw, and Field of Blood, a duo project with Eric Zinman. Also working with Fort Awesome, a TV theme cover band. I am also a member of Fable Grazer, a collaborative free improvisation collective. All work for these groups is spontaneous and through composed except for Fort Awesome. I am looking for gigs: live(as Resonator, Blast Radius, or solo keyboard), scoring or whatever. I am willing to work with collaborators, musical and working in other audio and physical media including video, projection, dance, and also as a sideman. Multimedia is also in the future. I have started bulding my own instruments and will incorporate these into my work. There are also composed pieces, improvisational pieces, some more traditional tunes in various genres and old stuff. Some is pretty raw. Other work otherwise. The sounds reflect my eclectic and wide-ranging influences tastes and otherwise. Some work will be totally improvised. Some very composed. It is all within my purview of what music is.
Among my current projects are:
Fable Grazer - improvisation collective
Blast Radius - loud and dark
Neksys - post-rock/post-jazz
Field of Blood - post-rock/post-jazz
member of Evil Clown collective - Leap of Faith, Leap of Faith Orchestra, Turbulence, Mekaniks - eclectic, non-genre specific improvisation music
Fort Awesome - fun-infused TV theme cover music
Resonator - a proto/post rock/metal solo project

Black Petunias - guitar driven sweetness and mayhem

Orchestra of Dreams
Various and sundry composed music projects
Soon to come: PYG, an improvisational doom trio/quartet.
I have guested live and recorded with many groups over the years in many genres, recently among others with New Language Collaborative and Metal Chaos Ensemble. I have played and studied trumpet for decades and guitar for the past few years (I consider myself a primitive self-schooled guiarist at best) as well as keyboard. As much as I am here to present my music, I am here to discover what others have to offer as well.
Dystonyx Music is my Bandcamp label.
Music is essentially my life.
