Music

 

These piano compositions are entirely my own original creations, recorded on a simple Radioshack DP-4073 electric piano. These are only a few of my compositions, more that are already written will be posted as they are recorded. (Note: The Jester's Jig is 'recorded' by Finale, a score-writing program that plays back your score. It is NOT a live recording.)

~~Bass Guitar Work~~

My current band with Hélène Engel performing "Nimrod" at Montreal's Club Balattou. With Hélène Engel on vocals and guitar, and Marie-Neige Lavigne on violin. My equipment is a 1989 Ibanez Soundgear bass and Peavy Minx 110 amplifier.




In the 1990s I played in an original hard rock band called Ravenwolf, in Phoenix, Arizona. Equipment is a 1989 Ibanez Soundgear bass and Trace Elliot amplifier. These songs were recorded at In Your Face Studios, Phoenix, Arizona. (In "The Wizard" a fretless bass is also utilized with a flange and other nifty effects.) Other band members of Ravenwolf at the time were: Alex Stearns - composer, lead singer, rhythm guitar; Bruce Irvan - composer, lead guitar; Mike Koenig - drums.

1988-89 and the era of glam rock saw me in a 'covers and originals' band outside Philadelphia that went through a few name changes - Touched, Stiff Kitten, and Bedside Manor. But the core three people - myself, guitarist Tym Burnham, and singer Mark Javorka remained the same. Here's a clip of us shredding the Deep Purple classic "Highway Star".

Abby, Mark, Tym, and our drummer.

And then there was Mistress, my first band. Founded in 1984, we played the Top 40 club circuit in the upstate NY Twin Tiers. Other band members were: Denise Blint: drums, Naomi Young: singer, rhythm guitar, Bruce Hauver: singer, keyboards, Sammy (and later on, Dale Toliver): lead guitar, Sally Kelly: sound engineer, Bill Drury: lights. Here's a clip of us performing Cyndi Lauper's hit "She-Bop".

I'm currently on hiatus from singing alto in the Shaare Zion Choir at Shaare Zion Congregation, the premier Conservative synagogue of Montreal, Quebec, but hope to be back next year with a renewed energy. The link below will take you to an outlet where you can hear snippets of the choir as promotion for the recording they while singing with Cantor Eric Moses under the direction of Lou Burko z''l. (Please note I am not singing in this recording, but the songs you will hear are but some of the many I will perform regularly with the choir.)
