Music is as natural to me as air is to breathing.
I have written about music as an interviewer, reviewer and as a music journalist. I worked in nightclubs for over two decades, curated a number of music series, promoted over 100 concerts, designed CD, DVD, and cassette art for A to Z Audio for over a decade, ran a record label for years, helped out many a musician, DJed and been involved in so many different aspects of music, it would be a crazy omission to not be a musician.
I have plenty of unreleased material from my youth. I even contributed music for a haunted house documentary. Sadly, I have not had a opportunity to find out if my music was included.
That being said, thankfully, there are releases with music I’ve created out there!
My musical Identity is
LURE OF THE UNKNOWN
My music available to the public starts overseas with the Hungarian label, Floppy Kick. I was invited by Floppy Kick to curate a compilation of Cleveland, Ohio area experimental musicians. SPECIMEN was the result.
I designed the artwork, wrote the liner notes and contributed one track “ETERNAL SCREAM TRAPPED INSIDE A GRAIN OF SAND” Oh, did I mention, Floppy Kick specializes in releasing music on 3.5 floppy diskette?
This led to being invited to Silber Media’s Five in Five EP series where musicans are challenged to create 5 songs that, all together, equal five minutes. My Five in Five is called DAY OF ENDINGS. I decided add to the Five in Five challenge and make each track title a microstory (a story told in six words, no more, no less) and for the music to be a soundtrack to the microstory it represented.
You can expect more in the future!
