SEEKING

Electronic Music.

ABOUT

My approach to music is that of a painter using sound, melody and rythmn to make people dance, sing, laugh and cry. I'm currently involved with The Slackstring Band (folk, unique sounding covers and originals). Occasional solo outings. Did some collaborations with The Mighty pandl(improvising through the genres from ambient to funky jazz) - Recording my own music in the martCave - Art Studio @ The Rooftop Arts Centre Corby Find me on Y**T**** - F***b**k and Soundcloud as "martrox"
At last! I'm free from "thedayjob" and can devote all my time to my passions, the visual arts, and making music. I've dabbled with guitar and synthesisers for many years.
