This page is full of stuff in the hopper...some stuff is close to finished, nothing is fully polished.  I have separated the demos into two "albums."  One is the stuff that I think folks might actually like to own, put on their electronic music player, download, share, etc.  The other is some rougher stuff that still includes some really good tunes, but ones where the production quality is not always optimal.   Think of this as something like raw, uncut semi-precious stones.   There just might be something of real value in here, but you may have to do a bit of sifting...
