I've been playing and writing all kinds of music for over 20 years. My main instrument is guitar, but there's a bunch of other stuff thrown in for good measure, including classical training on the trumpet. I've been having vocal training for over a year and that's something I'm now looking to put into practice.
I'm looking for other musicians interested in doing something that stretches them musically. What I don't want to play is anything that sounds like anything you've heard before - I'm not into imitating anyone else. Aside from that, anything goes.
There are some demos to be found on MySpace under "The Aleators".

Lately I've been listening to Magnetic Man, Chopin, James Blake, Bright Eyes, Plan B, PJ Harvey, Scott Walker, Feist & Edwyn Collins, among others. My all-time favourites would have to be Massive Attack & Bowie.
There's a noticeable Brazilian influence on what I write & play from a long spell of playing samba & samba reggae in a percussion group. I particularly like anything rhythmically unusual or percussion-heavy.
6 & 12-string acoustic & 6-string electric guitars, bass & amps; congas, timba, cajon & various other percussion bits & pieces.
