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"

Other Hentai

I really dug the Hentai Improvising Orchestra's set at the Other Texas Music show May 1st. So much so that I decided to tweek (er, remix) it! Ended up half as long and almost twice as dense. Mostly heavily editing, some looping passages, and using pitch shifting and tape delay effects.

Breaking Light at Other Texas Music 4/30/10

What a joy. I love these opportunities to play BL to an attentive, appreciate group, such as that that assembled in the Fort Worth Community Arts Center last Friday night. Herb Levy did a fine job of assembling an amazing group of sound and performance artists in a very short length of time. He's one of my local heroes now, for promoting "uncommon" local music artists.
