Davis Salks / Bio

Jazz is my goal. However, it is not to emulate performers. It is to discover the objective essence of jazz sounds and explore their possibilities.

I am a composer, programmer, and artist.

I endeavor to use computers, principals of music theory, and code to build jazz music in a way that is not conventional to jazz.

The tools are Reaper, a variety of soft synthesizers, and a collection of my own technical creations built with Synthedit.

The methods:
--Using logic to create phenomena that evoke feeling.
--Devising gadgets that automate human skills, and allow me to explore aberrant ideas.
--Adjust an endless plurality of parameters.
--Fight with unruly computers and disobedient softwares.
--Think about all of this all of the time.

The journey:
--Bridging my interest in jazz with the electronic mind-state.
--Reaching for traditional values, but stepping over the line.
--Seeking out free will... how to choose my knowledge and to control my nature.
--Always to be contemplating new possibilities.
