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"

avant garde

Wifey B happened into the cave while I was listening to the HIO set from last Sunday night at the Cellar. She actually expressed that she liked it and that it sounded "avant garde", a discussion of the term ensued. She informed me the term "avant garde" refers to the head flank, the first troops to go into battle, ahead of everyone else (she's half-French). I did not know that. Nonetheless, here's the set. My little Fender 10 watt amp is distressingly high in the mix, first running the cbg through it, then the iPod touch with the Moog Filtatron app. Thanks to Terry and the gang for having me.
