Charlie Patierno

NJ bred, Philly cured and Intergalactic bound. I obsess over the interaction of rhythm, harmony, melody and sonic manipulation. I am fascinated by the lineage of all music, its current state, and where its going. I am mystified and enlightened by the creation of live improvised music. As much as I'll ever be a doer, a teacher, a mover or a shaker, I am forever a student on a quest for deeper groove, a more meaningful moment, a more beautiful melody.
