I write mostly instrumentals in a variety of styles. I'm a keyboard player (though I also play alto/soprano sax) and my music is created primarily on a Korg Triton 88 Extreme. Influences include Mike Oldfield, Rick Wakeman, Hans Zimmer, Vangelis among others.

I'm happy to discuss any changes to pieces such as length, pitch and tempo and to alter pieces to fit a specific time sequence. I'm always on the lookout for opportunities to collaborate as well (work and family responsibilities permitting!)
Music for me is a passion and a hobby. I've never tried to earn a living from it but I've always enjoyed the challenge to write on request. Hopefully I can learn from the excellent musicians/composers on Broadjam and raise the bar as high as I can.

Hello Paul - Thanks for the review of my Christmas song. It's amazing to think that you believe my playing is quantized (I'll take that as a compliment!) - I guess I was spot-on with the timing. The sound is purposely made to sound "Christmasy" by midi-ing two pianos together, an Ensoniq SQ-1 and a Roland SD, so that both of their grand piano sounds play at the same time. I absolutely played the song "live" in the studio - the track is unadulterated except for added reverb in mix down. As for it not being usable as is, it is debuting on-air tomorrow on Q-106 at 8:30 a.m. as a featured song on their morning drive-time show in Madison, Wisconsin (you can stream it online at Q106.com). None of this is griping, I just wanted to let you know what you actually listened to, instead of what you thought you listened to. My sister-in-law Rachelle Fiskey, a fine musician in her own right, sang the tune, and Bruce Towle, the bass player from my band played acoustic bass, again with no quantizing. We recorded all the tracks simultaneously, as a trio, just as we do when we perform the song live. I added the strings in a secondary dub. I guess it just proves that what people hear is subjective at best, and I do thank you for your time in doing the review - it's always interesting to hear what others have to say, and I appreciate your views. Have a wonderful holiday! Terry Grinde

Hey Paul....cheers for the review of my music...it was just a piece I put together for a film opportunity on here (james Bond, Bourne Identity style) I enjoy the challenges the licence opportunities give, they really push my creativity in different directions. Critique like yours is extremely helpful, with very honest opinion and being constructive in how you put your comments is top drawer reviewing, so thanks very much mate much appreciated

Hey Paul thanks so much for the VERY thoughtful and detailed critique of Valley of Death. An insightful review with "I dont like this--here's exactly why" is so much more useful than blithe "sounds good to me" chirps.

Your variation on Bach is fun and could be used in a lot of contexts.

All the best!

Jeff
