ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I've been playing music since I first picked up a guitar at 12 years of age -- 1967.

Ben Ramsey wrote the movie, "The Big Hit." I produced music for Ben's first full-length movie, "Off White", which launched his filmmaking career, and for a Tai Chi exercise video Ben produced called, "The Eight Treasures" featuring ex-Federal Police officer and martial arts instructor, Glenn Hairston. My many musical influences are:

Jazz fusion - Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Weather Report

Progressive rock - Yes, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Van Der Graaf Generator, Premiata Forneria Marconi

Electronic music - Kraftwerk, Moody Blues, Depeche Mode

Classical - Beethoven, Debussi, Ravel

There are 14 songs on the album produced in three different studio settings (my home studio; my brother's studio in Los Angeles, California; "The Spying Game" produced at Pio Winston's home studio in Oakland, California). The total length of the CD is about 70 minutes.

On the CD, I play Hohner electric and Fernandes acoustic guitars, midi guitar using a modified Yamaha electric and an IVL Pitchrider MIDI converter, a Yamaha TX81Z rackmount synth, Alesis HR-16 and Boss Dr. Rhythm DR-550 drum machines, Roland MC-505 Groovebox, Kawai K1 and Kurtzweil K2 keyboards.

Some of the interesting sound effects came from the Alesis Quadraverb I digital reverb unit. I tied some of the songs together using an Alesis MMT-8 digital recorder/sequencer and a Yamaha MT-50 4-track recorder/mixer.

My brother's studio had a DAT recorder, so I went all digital then to analog cassette tape. Pio's studio had a nice Tascam reel-to-reel. They both had 16-channel mixers.

This album has recently been digitally re-mastered by E-Phlat, a technical genius and excellent electronic musician in his own right. You can check out some of his music here at his website: http://www.outthabox.com/ephlat.html

Great music and now, excellent sound quality (better than the samples). Give Mysteries a listen!
