About
I have my own studio, using Sonar Platinum, with a large library of loops and soft synths, in addition to a number of keyboards and guitars. My influences are eclectic, ranging from The Doors through political rap. The project I am now interested in is called "Trumplestilskin", and, as the name suggests, it's a protest against the present president and his erratic, dangerous policies. I already have completed a 4-song set, but am looking to improve this music and fill it out to a total of 8, to be performed at open mics in the LA area. Further, I would like to incorporate some skits and performance art along with the music, similar to SNL (for example, showing the prez on the toilet tweeting with a large "phone").
