A new project of thinking about writing for 4 guitars as in same feeling as a string quartet. This is one of two recent pieces. The initial idea was thought and recorded then the other parts were improvised one at a time from that. All performed on fretless guitar.

This is continuing of my new ideas for guitar quartet. This was my first piece done all on fretless. The initial idea, melody was thought out and recorded then the other 3 tracks were improvised off that. The idea of the sound and feel is akin to a string quartet.
This is for the dear departed Allan Holdsworth who passed away last Sunday. He was amazing. This is merely to capture a hint of his spirit and thoughts about listening to several periods of him this week. I particularly like the Bill Bruford years.
Created from segments in my Pure Data iPhone app hosted by Daniel IGlasia’s MobuPhat. I put this together few weeks. While enjoying a cheeseburger with b-que and onions at a local diner, put this together.
Well no strings here. An enhanced Pure Data patch originally created by Rafael Hernandez and embellished by me. I’m using an 80’s Yamaha FM tone synth so very old sounds here and controlling from the keyboard of the computer in the patch, playing freeform to a degree. Main beat is being sequenced…read more
I’ve been experimenting off/on for several months with a visual programming environment created by Miller Puckette called Pure Data (puredata.info). I recently had a breaktrough that led to creating a fundamental software looper. Very excited about this! This piece totally improvised all open…read more

First true foray in to microtonal piece on an altered fretless with 16 zip tie frets to the octave. Thanks to Chris Vaisvil for the inspiration of the technique as well as all his knowledge of microtonal music.
A piece that started with environmental recording from the NYC Donald Trump protest on 11/9 in front of Trump Tower. People chanting in support of women’s rights and fear of the new administration altering the course of things, chanting ‘my body my choice’. I manipulated that and manipulated…read more

haven’t played the oud in a while. Pegs needed setting so lubed with the peg dope and tuned up. Did this in spirit of the Halloween Sound-In event this weekend.

I did a charity ride recently in Death Valley. The headwinds were really strong. To the point that it was pedal all you could but it was 7 mph max. I got to a point where we were to turn around. I saw a black bird hovering attempting to go forward but he just floated in the blow.
very weird. Watched a video of a Stockhausen piece few nights ago and a blurb of it few min before doing this. Sine tones done in Pure Data controlled by lap steel over wifi midi on iOS. Captured in Audacity.
really strange piece. Started with a tutorial illustrating a sequencer in the audio programming environment I"ve been working in of late called Pure Data. I then added in a patch to capture some live playing using lap steel and iOS delay efx. Whole thing sounded like Clockwork Orange in my head.
A piece that came a few nights ago in some experimenting with midi over wifi and using my fretless guitar as a controller and an electric piano patch from the app. I looped the parts of the piece live in to Mobius.

I have been working with Miller Puckette’s open-source visual programming language for the creation of music and sound, Pure Data (http://puredata.org) the last couple of weeks, creating and using sine tones and of late combined with midi control via my guitar and a wifi app. This piece was…read more
In my exploring of late in non-conventional microtone world, this is not but this was still outside my norm box, working with an iOS midi app which I’ve been spending some time this week. This all recorded like to track, believe there are 3 trax on this.
continue to twist my strings weird actually and that is not meant to be tempered open folk tuning but more in between the cracks thinking about JI and the like. Improvisation with the guitar low to hi, C G D raised a little, no G string as it broke, A lowered a little and not certain about high…read more
I’m fascinated currently with alter’d tunings and I don’t mean the altered open guitar tunings used in a lot of acoustic folk, celtic and instrumental guitar which I have done and they are all great and inspiring. I’m speaking of the alter’d as in microtonal and Just Intonation which I’m just…read more

This is another ‘prepared’ guitar piece and probably going to be my 2016 RPM concept record for this year’s challenge. I’m using a piece of slate rock partly as a slide and partly to create effects on the strings. Additionally processing my slide guitar with the iOS app Aufx:Dub.
inspired by Susan Alcorn, this is a prepared guitar piece using pieces of slate I picked up by side of an ice wall I stopped to photograph a few days ago outside of Roscoe NY on rt 17. Video coming later ;maybe.
