Connecting the real and virtual worlds along a musical energy continuum from Generative Ambient Relaxation Music to High Energy BoogieBluesNoise live performances.


One foot in the emotionally expressive analogue world of traditions such as deep blues and 1200 year old Japanese bamboo flute, the other firmly in the metaverse of emerging virtual worlds such as SecondLife. Connecting the two through live streaming performances with dynamic, visceral, audiovisual performances.
See my blog at http://www.sonicviz.com/music/members/6/blog.php for more details!

1. "Bringing the Boogie to the Bitstream" - Bridging the real world and the emerging virtual worlds with a special brand of loose, raw, boogie blues. Visceral stinging slide guitar and harmonica backed up by AI driven custom programmed bass and drum grooves.

2. Ambient Trance Blues
A real time audiovisual experience inside SecondLife. A new project for 2008! A real time distributed jam between Japan and Taiwan, complete with a custom built generative visuals system to create a relaxed ambient trance blues synaesthetic experience.

3. Relaxation music for healing, meditation, chillout, and relaxation. Brainwave entrainment musical training sets. Interactive musical bio/neuro feedback applications.
