    Haha thanks!:) That's not a radio though, it's a Minox subminiature film camera:)

    I have an affinity for these cameras:)

    Probably because these aren't made anymore:) the minoxes I have date back from 1930's to 1990's:)

    Oh man! First off, you have incredible taste in gear. Secondly, I am clearly in the wrong profession, as you surround yourself with gadgets when you work. Loud gadgets! Thirdly, welcome! And the cameras are so cool! Real cold war Tom Clancy type stuff! So cool! Where can we hear some of your music?

    Thanks everyone for the welcome:)
    Sriracha, sorry I don't have any recordings of my gigs, cos each time I play it's different, and it's on-the-spot composition and improvisation:)

    Is your name a reference to a seriously complicated time signature? And if you are into mind blowing time signatures, have you ever listened to Frank Zappa? Some of his songs involve such complicated instrumentation, I have been listening to his music for several decades and still can't figure out what is going on! But then again, I am not a musician, just a fan!

    Haha actually no, it's tensixteen because the initials to my name are J.P, and "J" is the tenth letter of the alphabet series, while "P" is the sixteenth:) but speaking of complicated time signatures, I'm playing for a dance concert tomorrow, and the music piece I composed for them has a time pattern based on a part from the Fibonacci sequence. The time patterns of my piece are in "1,2,3,5,8,13" where each number is the sum of the preceding 2 numbers:) the total sum of these numbers is 32, so on top of my melody, I will have a looped track playing a loop of 4 sets of 8 counts:)

    Can you please record and post that here? That sounds facinating! I stink at math, but understand the prevalance of the fibonacci sequence in our natural world. That seems like if you played it, the universe would implode upon itself! fantastic stuff, and i strongly encourage you to post music here! I am into it big time!

    Well I didn't see a lens and the dials looked as thought they were radio dials. Besides I've been known to carry a radio around my neck...camera never occurred to me.
    I tried to google Yahoo up an answer before I asked but all I came up with was binoculars.
    Fine. :p

    FIXED
    Very :p
