Live and in the studio, I’ve been making music since the 1970s. I toured extensively during the 1980s fronting prog-rock band Golgotha on vocals and guitar. In the early 1990s I wrote and produced two Golgotha albums: Unmaker of Worlds and Symphony in Extremis. By this time I was using computers and synths, as well as indulging in plenty of rock guitar, and the fascination with high-tech music production remains with me to this day.
Naturally, one must eat (and buy guitars), so journalism pays my way and I’ve been fortunate enough to occupy the editor’s seat of three fine musicians’ magazines: Future Music, Total Guitar and Digital Music Maker. I’ve written a good many pieces of music demonstrating high-tech composition and production techniques to the readers and a selection of rough cuts is presented here, as well as some of my studio material. I’ll be adding to the archive, so check back for updates.
