A Brief Bio

Richard Aylward has been been making music of some sort or other since a tender age. He's had training in both piano, guitar, music theory, and audio production.

The pivotal event in his musical life was getting a Minimoog synthesizer for Christmas at the age of 14. That gift led to a fascination with music technology that has been with him for more than a quarter of a century. Richard started working with MIDI in the 1980s using a Sequential Circuits Six-Trak and a Commodore 64 computer running Dr. T's KCS. The Six-Trak was one of the first synths with MIDI and is believed to be the firsrt truly multi-timbral MIDI instrument. And it still works.

Richard was persuing a Masters Certificate in Music Production and Technology from Berkleemusic when life interuptted. Much of the latest music from Spitting Lama consists of class projects and has been produced on a number of platforms ranging from Logic and Reason to Pro Tools and Ableton Live.

Richard...Thanks for the encouraging review of my son 'Sideways'. Very thorough and some suggestions well worth considering.
All the best to you

I feel hampered as a reviewer by everybody being able to see my reviews. When did that start? I always try to be positive but I think I will be less likely to help people because of it.

Just be honest and show a little compassion. You did fine in the last review you gave to me...

Just keep in mind, you won't help anyone by blowing smoke up their ass, so be honest yet considerate.
