A one-man, iOS, Cybernetic, Mutagenic, Electro-Celtic Fusion Wonder band. "They could clone Dolly but they couldn't clone ME...!"
Welcome to the world of
Supersonic Tartan Death Machine (STDM) = Bagpipe-Driven Electro-Celtic Fusion. I call it "électrocelte". Recorded @ BearCave Studios Montreal using an iPad + iPhone + a host of awesome iOS apps.

Tech Tools used include: CME X-key 25 MIDI Controller, iPad, iPhone, Zoom H6, iRig HD, Propellerhead Balance, Sennheiser Dynamic headphones.
Apps used include (amongst others)Animoog, Audacity, Audiobus, Audioshare, Audio Mastering, Beatmaker 2, BeatTime, dJay, Figure, FourTrack, Glitchbreaks, Impaktor, Korg Gadget, Logic Pro X, NanoStudio, ReMaster, Reason 8, Samplr, studio.HD, SunVox, THOR, ThumbJam, Turnado and of course GarageBand for iOS.
Music: the music and stylings are widely varied. From traditional tunes to self-composed original bagpipe compositions, to covers of popular Scottish songs, or even rock songs. There really are no limits... new ideas are churning through my mind almost weekly. Some tunes start off with a bagpipe tune. Others start off with a few beatz worked out on an iOS device. I often sing new tunes to myself, record them on my iOS device and then write them down... and the creative process continues...

DISCLAIMER: if I do not follow back on SoundCloud do not be offended, I usually WILL follow back people with sounds. If you have ZERO SOUNDS I do not usually follow back. Sorry about that! I still absolutely acknowledge your existence AND appreciate your support.
Lastly, I am member of Celtic Prog Rock Trio "Dun Aenghus" and of Supergroup "Whatever The Majority Decides" (see links). The work I have done with these groups is also posted on my page. I have done a bit of writing lyrics, singing, playing Irish Whistle and Highland Pipes for Dun Aenghus, and singing and lyric writing for WTMD. Great fun!!
