About Me

My photo
After years of following an acoustic singer/songwriter guitar path, I've decided to go electric. Bringing loops, ebow and multi-stage delays into a largely improvisational mix that ranges from blissfully ambient to full-on psychedelic journeys in sound.

Breaking Light's latest tune is "Tin Man's Tears Flow"

Last night at the Hemphill was cool. Thanks to Ken for inviting me out to play. Zeitmorder reminded these ears of the Andromeda Strain soundtrack, with a hint of Larry Fast. Interestingly, when I tried to look up "Hentai" at work yesterday, it blocked me due to obscene content. Searching at home, now I know why. The Orchestra put out a wild, chaotic noise, with the most diverse collection of electronics and homemade instruments I've ever seen. That is a complement.

Here's a 17 min. excerpt of my set, I had to chop out 6 min. of the loud stuff because the gain was set to high on the 'corder. So what remains are the sleepy parts.

  1. Good set, sir! You have more control in your left small toe working the pedal knobs than I would utilizing both hands...

    Take care and hopefully we get to play with you again in the future!

  2. I would be honored! If I could only get some of my own crew to show!

  3. I love that you take your shoes off.

    The one and only time I played live with my GT-10 it was a shock how weird it was to play with shoes on... I thought that maybe I need to practice with shoes. I much prefer your solution.

  4. Definitely. Gotta be in stocking feet, I use toes to twiddle knobs and mix between the two loop pedals while playing.
