My artistic roots are in classical piano, but my development was unconventional, Most everything came late in my life, but my chronological age has always been ahead of my psychological age, so I guess I'm on time. I've always liked the strong stuff with some spiritual connection--like Johann Sebastian who wrote "for the Greater Glory of God", and Rush--cerebreal intensity backed by all that earth-moving power. Spent many a night with classic Floyd--you can get pretty lost there, wow...just one huge meditation. Let's not forget David Sylvian's Brilliant Trees, John Adam's Grand Pianola, Reich's Come Out, Ravi Shankar, and a hunch of other great stuff stuffed in a box of tapes that I may never play again.
 
To the left I've put my songs in pseudo-chronological order going back in time. The dates you see are the copyright dates, which aren't always clear cut, nor are they necessarily in agreement with the maturity of the song. The order I've put them in below is more reflective of my artistic growth and the genesis of Long Black Night.
 
To the right are my son, Benjamin's, comps. He got props from a listening panel of 5 music film supervisors in a ballroom full of over 500 people for Deadpool. Really cool song.
