Alan Lepik

When I first listened to Jethro Tull’s ‘Bouree” as a teenager in the 70’s I knew I was a fan of progressive rock and I wanted to render multitrack recordings.  My creative process now usually involves improvising a riff or a few bars on my MIDI synth and using Garageband to flesh it out and invent numerous variations on a theme. I’m really pleased with the flexibility and variety of sounds that can be achieved now but I always want the result to sound like the music I enjoyed in my musical formative years.
