I am a chemist by education and have no formal music training except a year of piano lessons when I was
in high school. However, two years ago, I became interested in creating music. This website details my adventure
into music production.
On this site, I'm going to provide examples of some of the music I have created as well as some software
virtual technology instrument (VSTi) plugins I have created in SynthMaker. Click on the media player below for a music
sample. It was created using my Gynth VSTi plugin. Go to the VSTs and Tools Page to download Gynth
to try for yourself.
Other examples of my music are posted on Sound Cloud website. Go to the Ph DJ Music on the menu to
the left to see and listen to examples of my music.

Chemistry was my first album. I was just starting out, learning to create music with
loops mostly, learning how to master audio files, add effects, etc. The cover was created by my daughter Nicole using
a photo of me in a lab coat and placing me into an old photo of a laboratory. The concept was I was the chemistry music
maker, had just created some music in an erlenmeyer flask, and am pouring the music (notes) out. I think the cover came

Universe Within is my second album. The artwork for the CD cover was created by my
daughter, Nicole. You can view her other photography, graphics, and art examples on her website: www.studionameless.com
I continually add new content to this web page so please check back often. Several tutorials are available
covering creating a music track, using SynthMaker vst plugin creation software program, to creating graphics for use in SynthMaker.
On my blog, I post news of updates and short talks about topics in music creation, DAWs, sound creation,
and SynthMaker software program.
I created several music tracks while learning to use audio editors and DAWs, mostly prepared from music
loops. I thought they were pretty cool, so after I had created enough loops that I thought were good, I put them on
an album and made copies for family and friends. Later I created enough for a second album and again it went to family
and friends. However, as I listened to more and more music at places like the Sound Cloud website, I began to realize
how beginner and amateurish my tracks sounded.
I kept at it, learning techniques and tricks in producing music tracks. I have created better tracks,
but they still do not measure up to the quality of many of the others. I have gained a lot of knowledge about audio
and audio manipulation, and currently trying to develop the skills to create original music.
I like music of all genres. I particularly like contemporary celtic music (not the bar-style songs)
similar to groups like the Cranberries, the Drovers, U2, and others. I think bagpipes music adds a very distinct sound
to the celtic music if used right. If you watch movies, no doubt you have heard this style music used as the theme or
