Future plans/projects

To continue composing, engineering,producing and mastering mine and anyone interested peoples music until the day i die. At the present time I am in between web sites, but I do have a nice sample of streaming audio on the CBC sponsored newmusic canada site. Also feel free to listen to a show of my own composition that aired on CKMS FM in Kitchener/Waterloo Ontario Canada in April 2001, and that is found at www.jelly.ca and it is accessed right from the home part of the main page.

Comments

Dextrotronix Sound Lab- this studio is my own private sound lab, from which i am able to express myself as comfortably as I ever could. I am extremely proficient with each and every piece of gear I own. I am available to produce tracks for and with any people that i meet who are after a good quality recording either digital or analogue, and especially recordings where both domains are used, a sort of "DigiLogue Studio"
