Information: i am the author of the music theory book "modalogy - unified field theory of scales" (w/ s.barkley) https://modalogy.net, and also a credited contributor to both "jazzology: the encyclopedia of jazz theory for all musicians" (rawlins/bahha) and scot ranney's "jazz piano notebook".
in addition to being a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and jazz fan, i'm a linguist fluent in french, high german, swiss german and spanish. i have also seriously studied arabic for more than twenty years (but i'll probably never get fluent in it), i can get along pretty well in italian and am familiar with dutch.
a major focus of my life has been documenting the whistling language of the island of gomera. a task which i may never complete, but in the library of congess there are several of my tomes on this subject as well as my english translation of ramon trujillo's book on the whistling language of la gomera entitled "silbo gomero: linguistic analysis" (original title: "el silbo gomero: analisis linguistico"). for more about gomera's whistled language please visit my website: https://silbo-gomero.com
i spent my youth traveling the world over (all paid for by music) in search of adventure and wild experiences. how i came out unscathed remains a mystery to me.
other than that i'm just your standard issue white trash.
wild women, beer, music, smoky bars and a good laugh
cucumbers, raspberries, violence and evangelical religions
