“I started making music in 2006 when I walked into an Apple computers store in Tigard, Oregon and decided to try Garageband with the midi keyboard set up there. I was completely enthralled and made a song inside the store. I ended up buying a Mac mini and a midi controller and started making music in Garageband while connecting the Mac Mini to a TV. A lot of my album Heartsong (The Early Mixes) was made with that setup in 2006.
I eventually bought a laptop, and in 2007 enrolled in music production school in Portland, Oregon. It was there I first learned how to make music with my current favorite music production DAW; Ableton Live. The majority of my music is made in Ableton Live, with some tracks from Garageband and a few from Logic Pro.
My latest music could be labeled Psybient Electronica, or Psy Trip Hop. Some of my older stuff is more a general Melodic Downtempo Electronica.
A couple big reasons I make music, is for spiritual enjoyment and intellectual stimulation. I believe the right music is intellectual activism. I use my discography in producing my videos. My first documentary will feature over 20 of my own original tracks. …” — Omnisense

New painting! Just completed! This painting was inspired by one of my favored mountain ranges, the Sierra Nevada, on Route 395. The imposing peak in the front, is Mount Whitney. We have had some amazing moments in amazing places up there. Places one can only experience if one is willing to hike in the heat for a few hours. This painting is my expression of these moments.
“I know but one Freedom, and that is the Freedom of the Mind.”

Recently I completed the illustrations for Deborah Smith Ford’s second book, from the series titled “Allie’s Adventures.” I have also created the animated book trailer below to accompany the book.
About Deborah Smith Ford:
Ford’s book series is called “Allie’s Adventures.” Due to the fact that the main character travels around the world the series was originally called “Allie’s Adventures Around the World.” Sometimes Ford still calls it that, but it was suggested that she make the title short and sweet. So she did. Two books under the series are either published or about to be. The first book is the award-winning “The Little Apple.” The second book is “The Little Goat in Africa.” Her books are written from the perspective of a child who sees the world in way only a child can on an apple farm in upstate New York, in the sunny south of Florida, in Kenya, Africa, and back. More journeys, adventures and critters met – some human, some not! “The Little Apple” is in a variety of formats – soft covered book, eBook and CD (song and narration). The second book will come out in both soft and hard cover editions. Some of the characters in this series are Allie, Mom, Dad, Grandma, Uncle Jim, Splat, Milly, Miss Downing, Ruthie… MORE book characters and books to follow!
