Experiments in Electronic Music
Coming from a science background, I have always been fascinated by the interaction of man and machine. I am continually experimenting with musical ways in which the two co-exist….
Satellite Orchestra is my 2nd studio album on which I experimented with placing a Rhodes electric piano at the center of some soulful electronica.
No one has been able to figure out the cover so I’ll explain it: Multi-instrumentalist and visual artist, Dino Soldo, designed the artwork and had the brilliant idea to create another world out of the insides of a Fender Rhodes piano. What you are seeing are the tines from the piano while the dark of space is actually the tolex covering of a Rhodes. The dragonfly is there to add to the surrealism and has actually become the logo for the Satellite Orchestra .
I only hope the music lives up to the coolness of the artwork! Thanks Dino!!
“Innocent Bystander” is my first studio album released in 2000. By the end of the 90’s, I was completely hooked on electronic music and knew exactly what I wanted to create as a solo artist. This CD was an experiment at merging the Hammond organ sound with funky electronica. Luckily, a few tracks were picked up for MTV Road Rules which helped to pay for the recording — LOL!
