gems and minerals

sound for video


 I have been creating electroacoustic music since 1981. My main instrument for many years was the electric bass guitar played through successively larger and larger amplifiers and lotsa FX pedals. I also play small percussion such as bells, hand drums, shakers, chimes, tibetan and quartz crystal bowls, synthesizers and effects devices, some of which i built. Lately, i am creating sounds primarily with computers until i set up a proper hardware jamspace when i will go back to a combination of hardware and computers.
My musical creations are electro-acoustic, space drone, psych*delic, trance inducing, improvisational, noise sound sculptures. I am most interested and involved in very loosely structured improvisational jamming and novel uses of new sounds.

Essential Oils and other Aromatics

  Since 1994 i have been involved professionally in the trade of aromatics, essential oil blends and perfumes. My original interest in aromatics began with incense which i sampled extensively from the time i was 14 years old.  In the summer of 1994  i started making custom blended massage oils and selling them at concerts and music festivals. Back then i had a selection of about 12 oils. Extensive study of essential oils, perfumery, and aromatherapy became part of my daily life. Still studying and formulating, I've mostly been involved in natural perfumery since the 2000s.

Gemstones and Minerals

  For about two decades, I was very much involved in gems and mineral trading- buying, selling, gifting and receiving them. I became immersed in minerals in the summer of 1994 and i am still somewhat puzzled by how deep i've gotten into the mineral world.

 As a preteen i spent a lot of time drawing, coloring, and painting. Space-aliens, witches, mushrooms, ufos, and dragons were common themes in my early drawings. Many years later i started to do mandalas with ink, colored pencil, and some watercolor. Breathwork, gemstones, yoga, psych*delics, meditating, and watching the sun and moon rise almost every day has contributed to my artistic vision.
