Subject: Re: demographics

From: "jmw" <evening@...
Date: 1999-10-28

Name: John Wieczorek

Age: 35

Occupation: Short-attention-span jack-of-all-trades.
I'm primarily a percussionist. electro/acoustic drumset, north/south indian,
& middle-eastern hand drums

Location: Salt Point,NY - soon to be Somerset, NJ - 1/1/00.

MOTM stuff: 100 x 2, 120 x 2, 700 x 2, 800 x 2, 410, 420

Other synth stuff: Virus, Wavestation SR, Ensoniq MR Rack & ASR10
Prophecy . Some PAIA & Blacet modules. In the past I've owned 2600,
Mellotron, P5, OBXa, MS20, Mini moog etc... yes - I have a gear problem.

Musical likes - I started out as a metal head (sabbath!) but eventually
heard late-60's Miles.
which led me to all sorts of things in the improvised realm ala ECM & NYC
"downtown scene".
I draw inspiration from "world music" - African, Indian, Asian.
The synth thing started after I ate a bag of mushrooms & listen to Kitaro
for 5 hours!
Mysteriously, I was buying my first synth (2600) the next day...
I'm familiar with & enjoy a lot of the ambient/industrial/electro music
but I try not to listen to too much, as I start to imitate.

Other things I like: Tinkering with wood & homemade instruments,
Growing & cooking my own food. avoiding income tax (legally of course ;-)
