New Age
Musical styles or qualities that I do not like:
I am rarely interested in any group or artist who places fashion & style above the music. I find, however, that even in genres I find otherwise fairly barren there are always a few gems.
Working the floor in a music store.
Other musical activities:
Classically trained trombonist (once a profession, but the fact that only the music I really disliked playing seems to pay anything made me decide to give it up before I hated music altogether). Active in various improvisational groups. I have two CDs out where I play the Backbone, a feedback trombone I developed with a friend, one is avaliable from barebonesrecords.com & the other is on Rastascan.
Hobbies / obsessions:
Music, books, & reptiles.
