Keyboardist Bill Travis is a prog-inclined solo musician from Escondido. His 2009 release Eclectic Collection showcases his trippy and meandering soundcapes, which pulse and drone before exploding into Floydian bombast.
"I’m 60 years old and have played piano off and on since I was 7," he said in 2010. "I never made the commitment to be professional, but it has been a great hobby. Now that I have a KORG OASYS, the programs and sounds provided afford me the ability to create pieces."
He describes Eclectic Collection as "A mix of old music — 1989 — and new songs from last year. The old part is of lesser quality, technologically...the album is a CD recorded straight off the OASYS, not professionally mastered."
