This  is all about Music and art . I make music and sometimes call it art music , I listen to music and write about it.  I also own Riverrun records (RVR) and produce and record most of its products. What else – I am a keen classical guitar player with a special interest in Bach and Dowland as well as contemporary music and contemporary  composition in general and have produced and recorded works by more than 100 living composers.

I think about music and I write these things down – here. Join my thoughts – add to them, argue with them, whatever you like…

And this is a photo of my beautiful 8 string guitar commissioned from Martin Bowers – an excellent fellow and master luthier
