The TAC Project is a journey to explore the various
possibilities of what a single instrument can do. It led to
the concept that a bass could be a melodic and harmonic
instrument, in addition to holding down a bass line. As a
player, creating the multiple tracks to accomplish this
was difficult but exciting at the same time.

I’ve always believed that a true musician works
towards mastering their own instrument but must have a
concept of what all other musicians do to achieve the
overall musical statement. It is with many talented people
around me that this musical concept became reality. I
couldn’t have done this without them. I hope that this
music brings as much joy to everyone as it has provided
me. I am truly blessed to have the wonder of Music to share!
Peace and Harmony!
