I compose electronic music best described as Experimental Ambient Synth Space Music. My influences are Aphex Twin, Vangelis, Brian Eno, Jean Michel Jarre, The Orb, Gary Numan, and Massive Attack. I am now venturing into film music after a few successful experiments and scoring short films, videos, and other media for the NC Museum of Natural Sciences.
Live, I try to create expressive shows that come at the audience from many directions. I add live controlled video elements to my performances to create an immersive multimedia experience. I have two sets I am currently performing, "A Beautiful Dystopia" and "Fall of the Wild: Convergence," I also do improv performances, durational shows of 3+ hours, and I perform a live soundtrack for "Eastern Coyotes Live," This is a collaboration with Dr. Roland Kays where we create a live audio/visual documentary on stage. It is Science with a Soundtrack.
I own the local Raleigh label Reaching for Lucidity. RfL is the home of artist SkidmatiK, the band Oregano Wrathbone, and my work as both Senator Jaiz and Eban Crawford.
I was able to bring my educational workshop, “No Permission Needed: Create” to Moogfest in 2016-17. This is focused on bringing out the wonderful creativity in all of us through music. I have also brought the workshop to local Raleigh High Schools and to NC State University. I am always ready to give the workshop so hit the “contact or booking‘ link to get in touch.
By day, I still work in the music industry. I am the composer, sound exhibit designer, and audio engineer for the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. So basically I am always creating something and working with sound.
I hope you enjoy my music. If so, drop an email or a comment and let me know.
