CDs

Raviindra - Songs of Devotion

Raviindra Songs of Devotion
I had the opportunity to record two tracks ("Song No. 5234" and "Song For My Love") on this wonderful CD of "Indian Inspired World Music." The tracks are a mixture of traditional Indian and Western music, with Indian, Western and some electronic instruments. It's a truly refreshing and original CD of inspired compositions.

And yeah, the songs had me sweating when I recorded them!

Jason Burke Swimming
I recorded this CD both at Jason's studio in North Carolina and at my home studio here in Germany. The music swings from wonderful Modern Rock to Progressive Rock. It was a pleasure to record the CD, and I look forward to doing the next one.

Matchpoint Heut' ist unser Tag/Our Finest Hour
One of my songs is being used by the VfB Friedrichshafen Volleyball Team as their Anthem. A CD of the English and German versions is available at the games. This ain't your average run-of-the-mill volleyball team--VfB FN are the 2004 German national champions again (6th time), and play in the international Champions League. The style of the song is Modern Pop with a 70's groove.

Goujroy Goujroy
Goujroy was a prog rock/metal band that existed for one year: mid '94 to mid '95. Goujroy never released their first CD, but I'm making the tracks available at Soundclick.com.

One of the things Goujroy accomplished in their short career was having a video produced. We were fortunate enough to have a friend who was getting a degree in audio and video production, and he used us as the subject for his final project.

Other Tracks

Terry Munday
I did this remix to give this great song a different dimension. I didn't try to mutate the song too much; I just wanted to look at the song from a different angle. The sound I was going for was Electronica-meets-Gutiar-Virtuoso, but without losing the traditional sound of a band.
