​On Leap of Faith: "Alien yet familiar, bizarre yet completely fascinating. Expanding, contracting, erupting, settling down, always as one force..." - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG

On Metal Chaos Ensemble: "... ​using unique strategies to yield densely active and eerily surreal music, an incredible excursion through experimental improvisation."   - Squidco website staff

Leap of Faith

Craig moved to Hawaii in 1999 and we are not in contact with him so a comprehensive biography is not available. 

However, we do know a few things.  His work with Leap of Faith is documented in the Leap of Faith bio.  He was extremely active and in demand in the Boston New Music scene in the 80s and 90s.  In addition to double bass, he also plays mbira and various African string instruments.  For many years he did the Mental Notes radio program on WMFO at Tufts University in Medford MA from midnight until 2 AM or whenever the next DJ showed up.  Leap of Faith performed several times on his show, and PEK performed roughly 20 times with a big list of other guests, but without Glynis Lomon.  Mental Notes performances with Craig and PEK are referred to by the band name Bottom Feeder.
