AJ Rice samples (updated January 9, 2010).
Clip of rough mix from February 08 Philly session; Jeannie Brooks (vocal), Tom Lawton (piano), Larry McKenna (tenor sax), myself (classical guitar), Dan Monaghan (drums) and Paul Gehman (upright bass). Written in 1980 for longtime friend and singer/songwriter, Tina S. Marie.
Clip from one of my oldest (late 70s) songs. Mountain Man is an old-timey country- bluegrass style, inspired by Robert Redford's classic, Jeremiah Johnson. Appropriately, I'll be dedicating this one to dear friends: Dick Beeler of 'High Lonesome' New Mexico and 'Cowboy Jeffey' Ward of Montana. Here's to you, fellers.
I wrote and recorded Starla in the late 80s, before my voice had matured. Will ultimately re-record vocals, drums, guitar, ambient sound effects and backup vocals and remix in a more modern style.
Jet Set (mono)
Another rock tune from late 80s. Again need to re-record vocals, drums, guitar, backup vocals and remix.
Urban Dream (mono)
Third rock tune from same time. Again, will re-record and remix.
Recorded at the small stage on the second floor of Oulu's Ravintola Tervasoihtu. I started the chart during Easter 2009. Rehearsals began in late 2009. Recording engineer was my dear friend Jarmo Pentikäinen.

Prophecy is more Native American, perhaps a nod to Bill Miller. It features Ron Warren (Tsalagi) on traditional flute, Dawn Avery (Kaniekehaken) on cello, myself on guitars, sequencing, percussion, Spark Livermore on pow wow drum, Walker Pickens on Tchauyuk, Genevieve Humenay on vocal effects.
Orchestral music I wrote for Emmy Award winning director Don Cox' movie, Afterthoughts. Unfortunately this track is from a poorly mixed pre-prroduction for the film. Patience, I'm currently rescoring this for a better recording. The movie, Afterthoughts, borrowed a bit from Hitchcock's take on the psychology of perception. Ergo, the the dark and churning texture I chose to use here.
Style: Brasilian Rap, Instrumental. DMA (Dudu de Morro Agudo) is a poet and rapper not far from Rio de Janeiro who I met through my wife. I'm working on a re-production of this for re-recording DMA's Ginga da Favela for him.
This clarinet and flute duet is from a post-modern chamber suite (Harvest Song) I wrote for the choreographer Joseph Cicala and the DanceFusion modern dance company of Philadelphia.
A brief sketch, in a Native Ambient style that I've been working on.
