This album was inspired by my love for the organ music of J.S. Bach and appreciation of the work of Wendy Carlos. While living in the boondocks of New Mexico without a decent radio station I borrowed an LP of Bach organ preludes, made a tape copy and played it on a Walkman as I walked along the beautiful Gila River. Surrounded by the mountains and the mesas, I was transported by the music and wished I could perform it somehow. Years later I got a sequencer and sound module and, recalling those walks along the Gila, I felt I could do a creditable job of bringing Bach's exquisite preludes and the electronic sounds together. I have been a musician with many musical incarnations. Born in the SF Bay Area in 1951, I started on clarinet in bands and orchestras all through school in Kentucky, ending up at the Interlochen Arts Academy (class of 1969). In the early 70s I attended college in Chicago at Northwestern U. and Columbia College, and began to sing a lot of folk and pop music with the 12-string guitar. After moving to Kalamazoo, Michigan I settled down with a lass from the wilds of Southwest Michigan and we developed a trad folk-singing duo. In the 80's there was a move to New Mexico and I took up the classical clarinet again as well as piano. Unsatisfied with city life we moved to the edge of the Gila National Wilderness and there I wrote some protest/political songs. Then in the 90's it was back to Southwest Michigan with some solo guitar work and then I started performing classical and jazz clarinet in retirement and nursing homes. Around the turn of the century I started playing around with computers and discovered midi and recording, while composing for piano, clarinet and synthesizer and trying to learn some other instruments. Now it's mainly back to guitar, singing and clarinet, performing at the local brew pub and still hoping for that big break haha.
