I am a guitarist, musician, producer, engineer, and owner of my label, 1k recordings. Since the late '70's, I have been taking photographs - landscapes, rock concerts, people, buildings, abstractions, and the like. I have always been interested especially in the things people don't usually notice, bringing a focus or graphic quality to an ordinary subject. As in music, i love texture, color, and line.
Lately, i have been snapping shots on a iPhone 3GS catching the day to day on concert tours in Europe, the blur of life, buildings, wires, skylines with the aim of transforming the day to day more painterly quality.
This is my first show as a photographer. Photography is a daily passion that accompanies my musical life, be it touring, gigging, or working in the studio. The camera is always documenting the events and surroundings of that life. Photography is music for my eyes, and music is photography for my ears!
Musically, I have been touring the world for over 12 years, collaborating with remarkable musicians, and have recorded on over 60 albums. I continue to explore the language of the guitar, and continue to extend my voice utilizing looping, bowing, electronics, and prepared techniques ala Cage. I release my music on 1k recordings, webcast sessions from my studio at 1ksessions.com, and continue to score for the world of dance and film. My latest project is a multimedia trio called Instant Takemitsu.
