I’ve joined this site to communicate with others who share my passion for: Dada, Surrealism, Fluxus, Auto-Destructive Art, Collage, Assemblage, Electronic Music, Experimental, Free Jazz, Synthesizers, Spoken Word, & other creative or off-kilter thinking that causes harm to no one.
My earliest expressions (1965), were drones played on an electronic organ with pencils holding down the notes while I played the minor chord buttons. In 1970, I experimented with an electric guitar & a Foxx Fuzztone pedal.
I joined the Space Rock band Alien Planetscapes in 1993 & continued the study of Electronic Music & Synthesizers with Doug Walker.
Now in my retirement years, I’m happy to occasionally create collages & Experimental Music & communicate ideas with other like-minded folks.
