Recordings:

A majority of these tracks were recorded by my on-board laptop microphone, and the freeware program audacity. The songs Beautiful, and just about all the covers were recorded using Live Journal’s Phone Posting service. I essentially put the telephone on top of my keyboard, using a sweater to prevent it from rattling as I was pounding on the keys, and just sang and played into the receiver. Needless to say, the quality of these tracks is fairly horrid.

In 2006, I had about $8,000 worth of home studio equipment stolen from me (including all the disks that had my previously recorded music on them). I’ve been financially unable to rebuild my studio as of yet. Some day.

Influences:

The recordings I’ve made are all acoustic, but the arrangements I have intended for them are a bit longer and have rock/metal instrumentation as well as strings. Probably the most powerful influences I have are the 70’s prog albums I heard in my father’s LP collection, the timeless music I was exposed to through symphony and choir, and many of the modern indie, progressive rock, and electropop artists. I’ve been a huge fan of Tori Amos for a long time, as well as Bjork, Radiohead, Muse, and Imogen Heap. Recently I’ve become acquainted with the entire discography of Arjen Lucassen, who is a progressive metal song writer and multi-instrumentalist. He is a King among men as far as I’m concerned.

NOTICE: I’m looking for musicians in the Mexico City area who would be interested in starting a symphonic metal/prog/post-rock group. The usual: guitars, bassist, keyboards, drummer etc. Musicians will hopefully speak a bit of English, because the only words and phrases I’m good at in Spanish are food related.

If you can’t imagine a modern arrangement when you listen to the following pieces, however, I don’t think we’re going to get along that well musically:
