Great Unwashed Luminaries

I grew up as a true child of the 1980's.  I am fascinated with
synthesizers and music created 100% electronically.  Must be the
thousand or so times I've heard "Tom Sawyer" from the great prog-pop
band Rush.  Or maybe all the '70s prog-rock I love like Yes, ELP and
Genesis.  Or all the great synth-pop of the '80s.  All I remember is
that sometime in 1983 my big brother borrowed Kraftwerk's 
Trans-Europe Express album from the library and that record 
scared me to death.  For weeks afterward I'd have to sleep with the 
closet door open.  I thought the "Hall of Mirrors" was inside the 
closet waiting to swallow me whole!

Great Unwashed Luminaries is my electronica side project.  I create 
music with a combination of laptops, software and analog 
synthesizers.  The music is influenced by the vintage German  
electronic minimalism of Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Ash Ra Tempel,
Cluster, Richard Pinhas and Klaus Schulze.
