Welcome

Welcome to my mp3 site. It contains links to all of the music that I have recorded and put online as mp3s.

You Are My Audience

I no longer have the ability to perform in public as I have aquired a form of environmental illness (one of the many illnesses that are the result of the poisoning of our planet). It is called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. What this means is petrochemicals and various synthetic substances make me very ill. Most people have no idea what is inside their common household products. At any rate, I can no longer work. Even going to the store makes me ill for several days, so playing in public venues is impossible.

Musical Styles

I write music in a lot of different styles. Some of the pieces are instrumental music like "New Age", "Ambient", "Trance" "Jazz" or "Classical". Some of them are songs (with lyrics) in everything from "folk music" and "folk-rock" to "Gothic" and "Pagan" music.

Mp3 Links

Here are the links to the files. I write music in a lot of different styles. Some of the recordings are slightly rougher than I eventually want them. and as I fix them up they will become available. A few of the pieces of music are available as sheet music in PDF format as well.

You will probably notice that the mp3 links are repeated in different sections. That is because some pieces of music are parts of albums. Other pieces fall into more than one genre. I thought it should be easier for people to find the kind of music that they enjouy if I just repeated the links

***remember!!!  To download these files and save them you need to "right click" the link and save the file to disk. If you just click the link normally, your browser will try and play the mp3 file. So unless you really want to play the mp3 (some are rather large) you should probably "right click" the links.




 Ambient / New Age 

The line between "Ambient" and "New Age" music is blury at best. Many of the first "New Age" musicians (such as Ray Lynch - "Deep Breakfast") are now categorized as "Ambient". So, I've lumped all the singles that apply to either category in this list. The Album "Native Sun" may also be of interest to you.

 Pagan 

All of these pieces of music are "Earth Oriented" in some significant way. The styles vary a great deal. Some are strongly tied to old and/or neo-pagan religious practices.

 Native Sun (Album) 

Native Sun is an older "New Age"album that I wrote back in 1996. The music is actually in a variety of styles. "Ra" is a three movement classical piece, while "Nippon" and "Goddess of Glass" would be considered "Ambient" by many people today.  I really like some of the tracks (especially Goddess of Glass) although I personally prefer my newer stuff (I nearly always do).
