MUSICAL PROJECTS I'M INVOLVED WITH:

Karmadog

It's… kinda hard to explain. It seems to run on some sort of electricity.

White Chocolate

This is my funk/rock/pop cover band. We do weddings and festivals and stuff. It's a real gas.

Open Interest Jazz Quartet

This is the jazz group I play with. We do originals and creative arrangements of standards from many traditions. Check us out!

The Becky and Greg Duo Project

Becky sings beautifully and writes great songs. I play keyboards with her. Sometimes we go all-acoustic, and sometimes I add some of my electronic gear. In addition to her awesome originals, we do creative arrangements of pop songs and standards.

Separate Ways: The Journey Experience

This is a really fun Journey tribute band. It's almost like being at a real Journey show!

Rändi Fay's Limited Edition

Randi is a great singer I often play with. I got to record on her new album, Falling. It's quite lovely.


FELLOW MUSICIANS:

Matt Turner

The best improvising cellist in the world, and a friend of mine. In Karmadog and elsewhere, we have made some really great music together.

Becky Markvart

Becky's main website. Check out her albums, which are all originals! 

Ball In the House

My favorite R&B a capella group. Old friends of mine.

Gary Fieldman

A great percussionist, composer, and friend. 


WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DOES PAGEL LISTEN TO? 

Melt-Banana

A really great Noise-punk band from Tokyo.

Arnold Schoenberg

A composer of great melodies and awesome endings.

Deerhoof

A really great band that I love.

Anton Webern

A composer of music that is extraordinarlily beautiful (regardless of what you teachers tell you).

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

The Godiva Chocolate of J-Pop.

CoH

Electronic musician from Eastern Europe.

Yoko Kanno

In my opinion, she's the George Gershwin of Japan.

Nine-Inch Nails

Trent Reznor is, of course, great (even though I SWEAR he copied some of my synth sounds).


Other Noteworthy Interwebs:

CD Baby

This is the best place to get indie music. They help out artists a lot, so shop here first.

Bandcamp

Another great website for discovering new music and musicians. Better than SoundCloud.

SoundCloud

Not as good as BandCamp.

Manitowoc

Where I live. Great place to visit. Gome see Acoustic Fest, Metrojam, Sputnikfest, and lots of other strange and wonderful things that go on here.

Manitowoc Public School District

Where I work as a substitute teacher. Also where my kids go to school. A great place in a beautiful town.

Homestar Runner

Still where I go on the net when I need to smile.
