  • Hello from Greg Moorcroft (eyes cast down)

    Greetings all! Thanks to Bruce (Windspace) for inviting me here.

    I haven't had the best attendance record on groups lately, since the Relaxed Machinery Ning had to migrate to Ello (a nice platform, but I just haven't had much time). I'll try to make some time here, though I have to be careful of the time suck factor. Time spend typing is time spent not composing and recording - for which I have precious little time as it is...

    Anyway, as Bruce kindly shared, my 4th album - Souls Adrift, in Disrepair - is out of the nest now. That reduces my number of albums in progress to... six. With a seventh to begin soon. If those all turn out nicely, I'll probably think my apprenticeship done at that point.

    The next two releases - both very nearly finished - are an EP of a classical cover, and an album of improvised solo guitar pieces. If all goes well, we'll see them released this year. Time will rule.

    Collaborations so far with: Chris Russell (Memory Palace album and another to come, as well as Particles and Waves from Relaxed Machinery comp reBOOT); Peter James (The Rage of Reason, from reBOOT); remixes of James Johnson (Two Fractured Mirrors, from rM comp Butterfly Effects) and Northcape (Clear Moment Remixed album). Guest spot on Ruska from Ari Porki & Chris Alvarado's album Halla.

    Biggest influences: Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Dirk Serries, Jeff Pearce, Robert Fripp. Some other musical heroes who should become influences soon include: Byron Metcalf, Pat Metheny, Gabriel/Genesis, Rush, Dead Can Dance.


    Cheers, all! Hope to connect with some of you soon.

        I remember you from RM. I didn't make the migration to Ello as I preferred the old format over the social network-like ello. I am sure I have been missed greatly.

        Glad you found your way here and we promise not to drain too much of your time away!

              Belated welcome, aoVI, I remember you from over on the late RM forum..and, I too, didn't make the transition for the same reasons. Still, good to see you have found your way here to us and I know the forum will be a better place with you as a member.

              Welcome once again. :thumbsup:
