35 years ago, having taken a leave of absence from Medical
School, and while working as an itinerant musician traveling
'round New England playing traditional fiddle music, a
friend asked me over dinner, 'What would you like to be
doing, if you had completely free choice?' I answered
without hesitation that I'd like to be putting traditional
music onto music boxes.
was surprised at my answer, as it had not occured to me until that moment. At
the time, I had very little knowledge of music boxes. To shorten the story, less
than 24 hours later, I had a job arranging 'Lara's Theme' for a Porter Music Box
Company 15.5" Regina disc.
then, I have been responsible for the music on several hundred discs of 'new music'
sold by the Porter Music Box Company of Randolph Vermont, USA.
the 1970's, and under special arrangement with Porter
Music Box Company, I produced a series of discs consisting
of traditional dance music, mostly from the British Isles,
and representing a type of music that had very little
chance of finding its way onto music box discs otherwise.

recently, I have worked with Icelandic singer Bjork on a series of discs used
on her recent CD Vespertine.
