Jason Martin


I LOVE to create with friends or musicians I know well so that we may make up the music on the spot, spontaneously, literally in the very instance of creation where the past meets the present & future...







What is music to you? What does it give you?

It is artistically presented mathematical patterns, it is an outward expression of human feelings and has the tendency to control the same.

What is your music dream?

Just to be able to have access to any medium, and to be able to do it and have it not cost me money.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Another brand new planet.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, Michael Jackson's Beat It for the guitar solo, and Hot For Teacher-made me fall in love with rock n roll=the guitar, synthesizer (blew me away), and the pounding drums (sounds like a Harley starting in the very beginning), i loved all the grown women, and Eddie Van Halen alone made me love the guitar like nothing else. He was SO inspiring and he looked like he was having so much fun...

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Umphrey's Mcgee, The Grateful Dead, Megadeth, Phish, Pink Floyd, System of a Down

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

What frustrates you most as a musician?
