the preterite Short Info

i am, for lack of a better term, a "turntapelist". inspired by pioneering experimental proponents of vinyl, as well as the work of my favorite hiphop dj's, i started to expand my improvising on the drums to include the electronics i had laying around or came up with on the cheap: mostly relics of the "tape age." i fell in love with these things very quickly & the music took on a life of it's own. then it became my life. these days i still take great pleasure in improvising freely with my self-made hybrid "cassette scratch kit", made up of (among other things) my trusty dictaphone, old phrase trainers & an analog cassette multitracker, combining "new skillz" with chance practices, composing abstract emotive tone poems on the fly. feel free to be in touch if you are interested in booking a show or collaborating. you can see & hear more about my music at www.the-preterite.com !
